Cosori Air Fryer Review. With the Cosori Air Fryer being the most talked about air fryer, lets see if it lives up to its hype and if it is worthy of the Amazon Best Seller Ranking.
Cosori Air Fryer Review
The air fryers were only available in parts of Asia and Europe and was the new kitchen gadget to get excited about.
The Philips Air Fryer was amazing, and it has evolved into the best air fryer (in my opinion) that is on the market today.
But not everyone has the budget to buy the Philips Air Fryer, so when Cosori approached me and offered to send a Cosori Air Fryer to one of the team members at Recipe This, I decided to jump at the chance.
It would be fun to try a different air fryer and see how the market has changed in the 9 years that I have now been air frying.
Why Get An Air Fryer?
Firstly, lets talk about what the Air Fryer is all about and why the Cosori brand should be sat in your kitchen.
- 360° Air Circulation Technology – Air fryers can cook food with 85% less fat content compared to cooking in a deep fat fryer. This is because the air circulates around the air fryer and air cooks your food instead. In many cases you can also cook air fryer food without any oil at all.
- It cooks food quicker – You can use frozen food in the air fryer as a good example of this. You will often find that air fryer cooking will cut the cooking time down by half.
- It is like baking food but crispier – I often find that when I am baking foods in the oven it will lack a crisp coating. But the air fryer is your crispy best friend and you will be amazed by the results.
- Perfect for diets – As an air fryer blogger of many years, I find that the air fryer audience is often diet conscious. Many of our readers follow keto, paleo, Weight Watchers or Slimming World diets.
- Money saver – Because the air fryer is PERFECT for fast food copycat recipes it means that you can save a small fortune on takeaways and buying rotisserie chicken at the supermarket.
Why Should You Get The Cosori Air Fryer?
You are probably thinking that is all well and good and an air fryer sounds fantastic and you have made the Philips Air Fryer sound impressive, but what about why should you get the Cosori Air Fryer?
Well here are a few reasons to get the Cosori Air Fryer above other brands.
Cosori Air Fryer Benefits
- Shiny Button Syndrome – If you love the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker for all its great preset buttons, then you will love the Cosori Air Fryer. There are presets for steak, chicken, seafood, shrimp, bacon, frozen foods, fries, vegetables, bread and desserts. All you do is press the button and come back to your food!
- Air Fryer Temperature – The food in the Cosori air fryer can cook from 75c/170f to 200c/400f.
- Air Fryer Cooking Time – You can cook for 1 to 60 minutes at once. Then add more time later if you need to for longer cooking recipes such as roast dinners.
- Air Fryer Shape – The shape of the Cosori air fryer is what I love most. Because of its shape, it can hold a lot more food, but look like a smaller air fryer. Perfect for saving space in a smaller kitchen or for those travelling in an RV.
- Food Warmer – It will also keep your food warm for up to an hour. You could leave your cooked food in the Cosori Air Fryer and come back to it later, knowing that it will have stayed warm for you.
- One Year Guarantee – Because Cosori have such faith in their air fryer, they are giving you a one-year buyers assurance. You can also pay extra for an extended warranty.
- Free Recipes – There are 100 air fryer recipes and helpful details included when you purchase your Cosori Air Fryer.
- Non-Stick Air Fryer Basket – There is a fantastic large square basket included with your Cosori air fryer. It is dishwasher safe and easy to clean.
- Shake Preset – When making our air fryer fries the Cosori beeps several times to tell you that you need to shake your air fryer basket. We thought this feature was fantastic!
- Price – I love the value for money in the Cosori air fryer range. When you buy an air fryer you are either going super cheap and having an air fryer that doesn’t last or having to spend a considerable sum. The Cosori is your middle ground.
Cosori Air Fryer Cons
- The Noise – The Cosori makes a lot more noise compared to other air fryers and is often like loud air conditioning. Not good for making breakfast on a hangover!
- The Non-Stick Basket – The wonderful thing about Philips is that it is a wired basket and doesn’t need non-stick coatings. I am concerned that when air fryers have a non-stick coating, that it will come off over time. Just like it has done with my Air Fryer Grill Pan.
Will The Cosori Air Fryer Last?
Of course, we can’t guarantee this as you don’t know what is going to happen. But based on what we see, the answer is a big fat YES.
It is a very robust air fryer and is built with quality in mind. I would trust the Cosori above other brands of air fryers such as Power and Instant Vortex.
Also, because the basket for the air fryer comes out so easily, if that breaks at some point in the future, it would be easy to just replace the basket.
You can also buy a wonderful all in one air fryer accessories bundle from Cosori. It is perfect for getting started with your air fryer.
The Cosori Air Fryer Accessories Bundle Includes:
- Egg Bites Mould
- Skewer Rack
- Cake Pan
- Pizza Pan
- Silicone Mat
There are some other things included in the accessories pack, but those are the highlights.

Recipe This Verdict
I didn’t want you to just take my word for it. So, I asked a couple that read my air fryer blog regularly to try it out too. They are The Bakers Family and are based in Michigan in the US.
They compared it to the Power Air Fryer Oven (which we also have) and loved it too. I thought they would find it too small or feel it was lacking, but I have converted them into Cosori fans too!
The big takeaway from testing out the Cosori Air Fryer is how much space it has for an air fryer basket and how many extras you get.
Looking at it close up and having chance to review the Cosori Air Fryer, you can understand now why it is an Amazon Best Seller.
