When I was looking for non-stick pans to use, Ninja Neverstick was the first thing that caught my eye. I’ve been using the Ninja Foodie Air Fryer with pressure cooking capabilities for a while and it has worked wonders in my kitchen. I’m confident that it is a reliable brand that has expanded into non-stick production.
To test the nonstick Ninja frying pan, I bought a 12-inch non-stick pan to get a bigger cooking surface. The whole Ninja Never Stick set can be purchased to have a variety of pans and pots. Our recommendations for the best nonstick ceramic pans might also interest you.

Ninja Foodi Neverstick Non Stick Pan Review 2022
Construction – Solid and Substantial
Non-stick’s performance is 70% determined by the material and the construction. Rest depends on how the nonstick pan is used and design details.
Ninja nonstick saucepans go one step further to ensure longer life.
It feels heavy like a mini cast iron pan. The Ninja Never Stick pan is made of aluminum that has been hard anodized. This makes it more durable than stainless steel.
Ninja nonstick sticks are distinguished by their 4.2 mm aluminum base, which extends to a thinner side. Its thick base is sturdy and aids in heat retention, even cooking, as well as less burning.
It has an attached plate that allows it to be compatible with induction stoves. The pan’s bottom side is flat and will remain flush against the glass of the electric and Induction Cooktops. However, the interior surface will have a bulge at the center.
Design – Simple, Effective, and Simple
The Ninja Never Stick pan’s design has been simple, but it is very effective. The pan has flared sides and is large. It can hold more ingredients.
The pan’s exterior has been shot blasted and has an uneven texture. Its interior is smoother than its exterior and has more sheen.
The handle is stainless steel is sturdy, long, and round. It feels good to hold. A hole is located on one end of the handle to allow you to hang it on the rack. The handle’s fixed end is engraved with Ninja’s initials and features a forked design to dissipate heat.
Our testing revealed that the handle was hot after it had been in the oven and on a stove. The interior of the handle is secured with two rivets. The rivets aren’t coated with a nonstick coating so food sticks to them making them difficult to clean.
Heat Distribution and Retention
It takes time to heat the pan because of its thickness. This is mostly due to the high-quality aluminum it uses in its construction. The Ninja pan, unlike other traditional nonstick pans, must be preheated before cooking. Otherwise, food will stick to the pan’s base and make it appear that non-stick is not possible.
After the pan has been heated, it distributes heat evenly to the sides and edges. It also retains heat. It still drops the temperature when cold ingredients are added.
Ninja Never Stick Non-Stick Pan’s Performance
I used the egg test to check the pan and first tried scrambled eggs. Truth be told, the eggs didn’t slide off the surface as well as I expected. The eggs were released from the surface quickly when I put the spatula under them. It cooked perfectly after I added oil to the eggs.
As I said, the interior is somewhat domed so that the oil pooled around its edges.
Next, I tried pan-seared, oven-finished steaks on high heat. I seared the steaks perfectly, with an even brown crust. Then I baked the steaks in my oven.
I also made crepes as well as pancakes. I was amazed at how evenly the food browns and how quickly the food comes off the surface.
Super Easy to Clean
A Ninja nonstick pan is easy to clean. It is easy to scrub the non-stick surface of a Ninja pan by scraping off food residue left behind from cooking in regular saucepans. You can clean the Ninja’s surfaces with a sponge. To prolong the life of the nonstick pan, you can wash it in the dishwasher.
Comparison with Blue Diamond Nonstick Pan
It was side by side compared with my Blue Diamond nonstick Pan. While both pans are nonstick, Ninja has a non-stick coating that resists PFOA and is strengthened at 30,000 F. Blue Diamond uses a ceramic coating.
Below is a quick overview of the main differences between the non-stick coating and mine.

Both the nonstick pans and the food release are excellent. However, the Ninja’s ceramic nonstick is less durable than the Ninja. Although these brands claim that their non-stick pans will not stick and are durable, and safe for metal utensils, in reality, they require the same care. You can’t abuse them by regularly washing them in the dishwasher or using metal utensils inside.
