One small but awesome silver lining of last year? Many of us took our cooking skills to the next level. Some have invested in fancy grills and kitchenware, others have tried out ambitious new recipes, and more than a few have turned themselves into amateur chefs — or at least very polished bread bakers.

QVC is helping us keep those culinary adventures alive. The mega-retailer just slashed the price of the renewed Ninja Foodi Smart XL 6-in-1 Indoor Grill down to $180 from $245.

Cooking for a crowd? You'll be happy with the "XL" part of its name — you'll be able to grill 50 percent more food than the original Ninja Foodi Grill. And don't let that name fool you: It ain't just a grill. It works overtime as an air fryer and dehydrator and has bake and roast functions.

Don't want to shell out all $180 at once? You can split up your payments into five interest-free Easy Pays of $36. Plus, if you're a first-time shopper at QVC, you can score an extra $15 off with code NEW. Want to learn more? Make sure to watch the video here.

The compact Foodi comes with a grill grate, a four-quart crisper basket and a six-quart cooking pot. Plus, it has four smart protein settings, nine customizable doneness levels, and a Foodi Smart Thermometer that lets you get that perfectly rare tuna steak or well-done burger at the touch of a button. Plus, with five cooking functions and a range of 150 to 500 degrees, you can whip up anything sweet or savory in this do-it-all device.

"My go-to appliance when I want to have some delicious burgers!" a shopper shared. "Fast, and virtually smoke-free. Worth the investment."

You get more than just the Foodi, too. The set includes five kabob skewers and a roast rack, as well as a four-quart crisper basket, splatter shield, and even a brush for cleaning.

An all-in-one indoor powerhouse

One shopper shared: "I was skeptical about ordering this. Three months later, I find that I use it constantly. I absolutely love the air-fry feature, and that's what I use the most. I will never cook bacon any other way! The grill is great for doing everything you would on an outside grill, only easier and without fighting the heat and bugs!"
