Ninja launches first ever barbecue so you can get grilling this summer

Ninja's newest appliance is a woodfire electric BBQ grill and smoker. (Ninja)

While you may recognise Ninja from its bestselling air fryers and multi cookers, its latest appliance is sure to catch your attention.

The brand recently unveiled its new Woodfire Electric BBQ Grill & Smoker, perfect for the coming warmer months to brush up on your barbecuing skills.

Costing £349.99, it's already racking up rave reviews from shoppers and boasts an impressive seven different cooking functions.

Perfect for gardens, patios, campsites, balconies and more, its sleek design is space-saving too, and is unlike big, bulky BBQs that can take up space in small gardens.

It's ideal for mess-free, hassle-free outdoor cooking, any day of the week. (Ninja)

We suspect this will be another Ninja success story that will quickly sell out, so if you're keen to get your hands on one, keep reading to find out why it's proving popular.

Why we rate it

This easy-to-use outdoor electric BBQ grill, smoker and air fryer requires no charcoal, gas or flames.

Instead, its integrated smoker box burns natural wood pellets to give your meat, fish and veggies mouth-watering smoky flavours. Simply plug in the power cord and get cooking.

Thanks to its compact size, it won't take up much space and can be used to whip up a feast when the weather heats up, by resting on your garden table.

It has seven different functions under one lid: Grill, Smoke, Air Fry, Roast, Bake, Reheat and Dehydrate. (Ninja)

Our favourite feature is it can also be used as an outdoor air fryer which can can roast, bake, reheat and dehydrate using less fat than deep frying.

When you buy one, it also comes with an extensive kit to provide you with everything you need, including a woodfire pellet starter pack, pellet scoop, crisper basket and a chef-created recipe guide.

What the reviews say

Given its many winning features, it's not surprising it's already receiving five-star ratings from Ninja customers. Here's what some had to say:

  • "My favourite new cooking gadget. It was really easy to put the handles on and get started. I was nervous about cooking times but my first time using it felt like it went smoothly. I was dying to give some ribs a go. So I cooked the ribs slowly in the smoker. I wrapped them up once they [were] done... and threw some steaks on. The meat tasted amazing and the ribs fell off the bone..."

  • "I had been waiting a while for this to come into the uk, so I could purchase one, and it was worth the wait, did rib-eye steak on it yesterday with mushrooms tomatoes used the smoker , all I can say is it was the tenderest juicy steak I have had in a while, all done in 8 mins cooking time, you can’t go wrong, the ninja even tells you when to flip the steak over."

  • "I was really looking forward to trying the bit of kits to help transform our outdoor cooking experience when we are on our travels with the caravan and it hasn't disappointed. It needed minimal assembly (literally just attach the handles) and it's ready to go... If you already have a Ninja grill, it will feel really familiar. The usual air fry, grill, roast functionality is there but with the Brucey bonus of the smoker function, which is a game changer. You literally add a small scoop of pellets into the little smoker section like funnel, hit the button (Woodfire flavour) and off you go."

  • "I’ve been using this for about a month now and can honestly say this has taken my food to the next level. The Smokey flavour added is simply divine, leaving a rich delicious taste. The product itself is quite compacted compare to previous BBQs I have owned. The handles make it easy to move around and set up is as simple as plugging it in."

  • "If you’re looking for an all in one piece of kit that also has a small footprint I couldn’t recommend it enough. I think the size makes it portable enough to probably take away camping also, this is something I’m going to be looking into in the near future as it’ll be considerably easier to clean than a coal or comparable gas grill."
