When would I use slow cooking and how does it work?
You can use slow cooking for all types of meals. This method of cooking is perfect for meats that are typically less expensive cuts and take many hours to tenderize. The long and low temperature leaves the meat tender and juicy. For other types of foods, slow cooking allows you to cook hands-free, over a longer period of time. The Ninja® system includes Slow Cook HIGH, LOW and Auto Warm settings. Slow cook HIGH cooks in half the time it takes to cook on slow cook LOW. This flexibility offers two options that work best with your schedule. Use LOW for all-day “set it and forget it” cooking. Use HIGH for half day or weekend cooking. Once the cooking cycle is complete, the unit will automatically switch to AUTO WARM, which will run for 12 hours.

Ninja 4n1 cooking system

Absolutely LOVE this cooker! Although it is not big enough to roast a turkey, and if it was it would be great, it does a fantastic job in whatever I put in there to include lobster and shrimp in the steaming process. Don’t know why you went to a 3n1 system from the 4n1....but the 4n1 ROCKS!

From hard boiling eggs for breakfast to browning meat and onions for sauce the Ninja makes my job easier. I own three of my own and I give them as wedding gifts for every bridal shower I attend.
