The Ninja Foodie grill is all you need to take with you when you travel.
When it comes to travel, there are grilling options and you may want to dismiss this if you travel in a car, but the Ninja Foodie Grill is perfect for that too.
I don’t want this to be an advertisement for any of the Foodie products but sometimes something so simple makes so much sense. Whether you travel in an RV or your vehicle, this grill can change your life immediately.

About the only thing you wouldn’t want to do is check into baggage if you are flying. In that case, leave it at home. I guess you could if you absolutely wanted to.
Grilling is not just a “man” thing anymore and I know a lot of women who love to show up the guys when it comes to grilling chops. Yet traveling can sometimes drag that down and frankly, I’m not a big fan of the communal grill pit and rusty grated campsite grills. Even when I rent a house, I don’t like to use the grill on site because most of the time you spend too much time cleaning it before you use it.
In an RV, you can hide a grill in one of the storage compartments and pull it out, set it up, and fire it up and you are good to go but even that can be a pain in the arse. Now there is a real alternative.
The Foodie Grill is a bit bulky and while it is not overly heavy, it is big compared to other kitchen appliances. Think of it as taking your microwave with you on a trip. Yet, if you want to grill, this is a GREAT option you seriously need to consider. I use it at home and whenever I travel someplace other than a hotel room, although, I could use it there as well. There is no smoke from the grill.
The grill comes with a pan, a grill grate, and a basket and because of that, it is multi-functional. I’m not joking here when I say it does almost anything. Frozen bacon to crispy goodness in 11 minutes? Check. Crispy french fries in under 15? Check. This little bad boy can air fry, steam, grill, roast, dehydrate, and yes, bake.
I take mine in my RV on every trip and got rid of my portable gas grill. I also pack it up in my car so when I go on my one-week house rental vacation, I don’t have to worry about using the home appliances. Last year we baked a cake for the 4th of July. It took about 25 minutes.
Obviously, the taste is important, and if you can’t get that grilled taste and char then what is the point? Well, I decided to test this little theory twice with my wife who turned her nose up to the prospect of eating steak off the foodie. So, I took two T-bone steaks with the same thickness and put one on the grill and one in the Foodie. I gave her the one in the Foodie and she didn’t know the difference, in fact, she didn’t even know I used the Foodie at all.
The 2nd time I opted to grill frozen chicken breast. I heated the grill grate, dropped the frozen breasts onto the grill, and 12 minutes later I had a fully cooked chicken breast with grill marks and all. I even basted them as I went with BBQ sauce.
Traveling can be expensive and when you factor in the money you spend on food, well, you need to be able to cook it conveniently. Now you can. This is a must-have item in your kitchen, and while it is big, it is small enough to fit in your car with all your luggage, and every other item that your significant other deems necessary for a trip that they will literally never use. Trust me, you will use this.
Oh and if you are wondering, yes you can cook frozen bacon in 12 minutes. Just saying.
