Want to know how to cook corn on the cob in Ninja Speedi?

When summer kicks in and grill season starts, who doesn’t love a good grilled sweet corn?

But I love corn year-round, and it doesn’t need to be summer nor cooked on a grill.

This Ninja Speedi Corn on the Cob is so easy to make and so good!

I love making them as an appetizer, snack or side dish.

Why Make Corn on the Cob in Ninja Speedi

I’ve been using the Ninja Speedi so much, it’s not even funny!

You can find all my Ninja Speedi recipes here.

It can do both steam and air fry, and also run both when cooking.

This is why corn on the cob is perfect with Ninja Speedi.

Sure, there’s steamed corn and there’s air fried corn, but you get both (steamed then air fried) in the Speedi!

Steaming preserves the juices and more nutrients.

Air frying gives some char to enhance the sweetness that we all love.

Tips for Ninja Speedi Corn

Here are some tips for the easy Ninja Speedi Corn recipe:

  • If you don’t want the char, you can just run it on STEAM for 5 minutes.
  • If you want more char, increase STEAM & CRISP temperature or time (e.g. to 400F/205C, or 12 minutes)
  • If you don’t want to steam, you can AIR FRY at 390F (200C) for 12-15 minutes.
  • If you’re serving corn for more people, break the corn on the cob in half before cooking.
  • For more flavours, see toppings below.

Can You Use Speedi Recipe on the Ninja Combi?

With the Ninja Combi All-in-One Multicooker, Oven and Air Fryer, you might be wondering if Ninja Speedi recipes will work for the Combi 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 a recipe in both Speedi and Combi, let me know your experience.
