COSORI Electric Hot Air Fryers
COSORI Electric Hot Air Fryers have become some of the most popular air fryers on the market. Two smart looking models are available, 5.8Qt and 3.7Qt. They both feature healthier fried food, high power for faster cooking, easy to use controls, and 2-year warranty. What else do these COSORI Air Fryers have to offer, and how do they perform? Read my detailed review to learn more.
COSORI Electric Hot Air Fryers – Overview
Air frying technology cooks healthier fried food with up to 85% less fat than traditional oil frying. But it does not sacrifice the crispy, crunchy outside and tasty, tender inside texture. Use COSORI Electric Hot Air Fryers to cook your family’s favorite fried foods without the guilt of feeding them unhealthy meals.
All you need is a COSORI Air Fryer, a tablespoon or less oil, none if you are cooking frozen fries, and the included 100 recipe cookbook.
Or use one of the convenient 11 cooking presets to easily program one of your favorite food items:
- Frozen Foods
- French Fries
- Root Vegetables
Customizing programs with more/less time or temperature is also easy.
The footprint of the COSORI Air Fryers do not take up a lot of countertop or cupboard space. But they look attractive enough to be left on your countertop in any kitchen all the time.
COSORI Electric Hot Air Fryers – Features
Not much is known about the COSORI brand. The Corporation is registered in the State of California and the President is Lin Yang who is associated with a number of companies in California and other U.S. States.
In addition to Air Fryers COSORI makes Pressure Cookers, Multi Cookers, Personal and Countertop Blenders, Coffee Warmers, Vacuum Sealers, a French Press coffee maker and an Electric Glass Kettle.
Its reputation is good. Product reviews for all of their appliances are mostly positive. They offer a 90-day money back guarantee and the warranty period is a generous 2 years, 1-year default and 1-year extended just by registering within 14 days of purchase.
The warranty states “Once our Customer Support Team has approved your (warranty) request, please return the unit with a copy of the invoice and your order number.” I assume this means that the purchaser, you, are responsible for shipping costs. Depending on how far away you live from the nearest repair depot (California?) this could be a substantial amount.
COSORI Electric Hot Air Fryers come in two sizes.
The model CP137-AF has a 3.7Qt capacity. This will cook a meal for 2 to 3 persons. It will easily hold a 2 lb. bag of frozen fries.
The model CP158-AF with 5.8Qt capacity will feed 3 to 5 people and cook a whole 4 lb. chicken.
Power and Control
Power rating for the 3.7Qt model is 1500 Watts whereas the 5.8Qt model uses 1700 Watts.
Energy efficiency is achieved by an Auto Shutoff feature that turns off power to the unit when the cooking time is completed.
The COSORI Electric Hot Air Fryers have a very attractive rectangular shape and good looking digital control panel layout. Touch sensitive buttons are well laid out and the pre-programmed functions are labelled with icons rather than text for ease of use no matter your native language.
Adjustments to the temperature and time settings of the preset programs are easily made with touch-sensitive +/- buttons. Thus, you can cook everything to your desired preferences.
The LED temperature readout can easily be switched between °F and °C. Minutes of cooking time remaining are displayed beside the temperature.
A convenient Shake alarm is available to remind you to remove the contents and shake or turn them over for more even cooking results.
Also available is a Keep Warm function that can be programmed to hold your food at serving temperature until you are ready for it.
Preheating is important to the final result of your cooking. Food texture is visibly improved. It only takes 2 to 5 minutes with the COSORI Electric Hot Air Fryers, considerably less than traditional ovens.
Surfaces in contact with food are non-stick and easily removed and separated for easy cleaning. All removable parts are dishwasher-safe to save you time and effort.
The base unit itself should not be immersed in water but is easily wiped clean with a damp cloth.
