If you have not heard of the Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking system I am here to tell you I am loving this machine so far. I heard several people chatting about Target having the Ninja’s on clearance. I stopped by my closet Target and they did not have one in stock. The closet store with one in stock was 2 hours away. My daughter and I decided we would just go home. I got home and clean house some and piddled around the house. Around 3:30 pm last Sunday , I got the bright idea I would take that 2 hour ride to Garners Ferry Road in Columbia. I could not find anyone that wanted to ride with me so off I went. I called to make sure the Ninja was in stock. I asked if they could hold it for me sense I was driving 2 hours. They told me no, it was a clearance item and they could not hold it. I was so happy they still had it when I arrived. I have had the Ninja for a full week and have not cooked a meal in the cool machine until today.

If you are interested in finding a Ninja check your Target. If not you can get a Ninja 6-qt 3-in-1 Slow Cooking System through QVC. Sometimes they have specials for 5 easy pay.
