From his vegetable garden to his chicken coop, David Beckham takes his time outside seriously. As summer sets in, that means preparing seriously for cooking outdoors.

A huge part of barbequing is choosing the best grill, and Beckham has landed on his top pick: The Ninja Woodfire Grill. Ninja took to Instagram to share a photo of the famed soccer player posed with his grill to announce their new partnership. Since Beckham is known for his love of cooking and SharkNinja is known for its innovative kitchen technology, it's a match made in heaven.

'David shares our commitment to performance and quality, sets the same unimaginably high bar that we do, and is deeply passionate about cooking,' says Mark Barrocas, Chief Executive Officer at SharkNinja. He continues, 'We are so excited to work with him to bring the Ninja story to life and help us advance our mission to positively impact people’s lives around the world.'

With Memorial BBQ parties right around the corner, it's a perfect time to spotlight Ninja's incredible portable grill, which has gained the David Beckham seal of approval. The grill has gained acclaim for its sleek look and multitude of settings from classic grilling to smoking and airfrying. It is certainly a showpiece that would compliment any outdoor kitchen.

Beckham says: I love to be at home creating meals for my family either in the kitchen or cooking outside so I’m delighted to partner with Ninja to help bring greater awareness to their amazing products.'

David isn't alone in loving Ninja's products, especially the grill he's pictured with. In our Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill review the H&G editor who tried the oven gave it 4.5/5 stars. She lauded the multitude of capabilities of the grill, especially the smoking settings, which make this tool especially unique for an electric grill.

Editor Alex Temblador gushes, 'Many grills have multiple cooking functions, but there isn’t anything on the market quite like the Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill.' She continues, 'Portable, affordable, and easy to clean, the Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill has become our favorite grilling toy.' Coming from someone who reviews home tech for a living, I can't think of a higher endorsement, except for maybe David Beckham's approval.


Ninja's kitchen tech plus David Beckham is a powerful combination, and we can't wait to see what else comes out of this collaboration.
