Can You Use This Speedi Recipe on the Ninja Combi?

You might be wondering if this Ninja Speedi breaded chicken will work for the Ninja Combi All-in-One Multicooker, Oven and Air Fryer as well.

I don’t have a Ninja Combi, but, on researching the functionalities and customer feedbacks who have both, here are my findings:

  • Ninja Combi seems to be just an updated version of the Ninja Speedi.
  • The Combi basically has the same features as Ninja Speedi.
  • It’s just that Ninja Combi is bigger and in a oven-style, loading from the front instead of the top.
  • Instead of Speedi Meals, you use Combi Meals function.
  • The Speedi has inner pot and crisper tray and the Ninja Combi has a bottom pan and bake tray for the two-level cooking.
  • Whereas the Speedi is good cooking meals for 1-2 people, the Combi is good for families and parties.
  • Customers who have used both Speedi and Combi say the recipes are interchangeable because of the same setup and features.

So it seems like Ninja Speedi Recipes can be Ninja Combi Recipes. If you’ve tried this crispy chicken recipe in both Speedi and Combi, let me know your experience.
