Cosori air fryers are famous for producing crispy food that has the deep-fried flavor that we love. The Cosori has a square-shaped basket and tray, which is better than the fryers with a round design, as they provide more cooking space. Besides, the square-shaped design also makes the crisping basket easier to slide in or out.

On the contrary, the manual settings option on Cosori Air Fryer is not the best. Many users find the temperature and timer buttons easy to mix-up, until they get used to the way they are set in the control panel. Air-frying requires you to open the basket and give the food either a shake or a turn during the cooking process. While removing the basket on the Cosori air fryer, the timer pauses, which is a good thing, as you don’t want to have to constantly reprogram the time and temperature.
Nevertheless, when you close the device to continue cooking, the Cosori air fryer always adds one minute to the cooking time. So you really need to be aware of that and make any necessary time adjustments, in case it will affect the food you’re preparing.
