So, COSORI makes some of the best air fryers in the biz, which is another reason why you should invest this sale season. If you're already sold on the brand itself, but not totally sure which Cosori air fryer will fit in your kitchen (size and style-wise), we can help with your buying decision based on how many mouths you need to feed, how much money you're working with (including a section on how much it costs to run an air fryer), and even your dietary requirements. Because there's no point in buying an air fryer with additional niche functions if you're not going to use all of them.

This is the more recent version of the COSORI Pro, and it's the exact same size. How does it differ? It looks a little bulkier and is also slightly heavier. In saying that, it cooks food 20% faster, lets you customize its settings, and reminds you to shake your food — ideal.
Real Homes rating: 5/5 stars in our Cosori CP358-AF Pro Air Fryer review.
The best Cosori air fryer for modern homes
Capacity: 4 qt (Serves 2–4 people)

Functions: 7 including chicken, fries, keep warm, preheat, and customizable bacon, steak, and veggies functions
Dimensions (in.): H12.8 x W10.8 x D13.6
This small air fryer is nice and affordable, sitting under the $100 mark. It's best for small families or couples thanks to its smaller capacity and it comes in a range of colors (including tasty-sounding Truffle Gray, White Peach, and Sage Grey) to suit all kitchen countertops. While it can't air fryer turkey, it can fit a whole 3.5lb chicken. The smart control system lets you start cooking, monitor your food's progress, find recipes, and more, all from an app on your smartphone (requires iOS or Android operating systems). Voice-activated cooking is this year's Christmas party trick if you have an Alexa or Google Assistant. Sounds geeky, but one of our favorite features is the silicone corners on the crisper plate accessory which keep it secured when shaking and removing food. So, if you want quick meals made in a cute convection oven — 'Lite' up your life!

The Cosori Pro LE Air Fryer L501 appeals to all senses in Real Homes' head of review's opinion. Visually, this small kitchen appliance has a sleek design with a tempered glass display and the display is ergonomically angled toward you for easy reading. What's nice is that this appliance doesn't sound like it's suddenly going to take off on your worktop. In fact, the 55-decibel Air Whisper™ technology means it's only as noisy as a quiet conversation.

The best luxury Cosori air fryer
Capacity: 6.8 qt (serves 4–6 people)

As Cosori's most expensive air fryer, this is the one to go for if you're serious about investing in an air fryer. It might not be one for couples or for anyone short on kitchen storage space or countertop space, but it is great for even cooking. Because of the unique upper/lower heating elements and dual sensors, it requires no preheating (or shaking of food at the halfway mark). Like the Cosori Lite, this also has the VeSync app to check in with your convection oven and receive cooking notifications.

Weight: 22 lb
Wattage: 1800 W

If you're looking for an air fryer that can cook a full roast dinner, grab this Cosori air fryer toaster oven with both hands. As well as cooking all the trimmings, it can air fryer a turkey (albeit a very small bird) with the roast function. Plus, when you're sick of turkey, use this countertop oven to bake 13-inch pizzas. Extra brownie points if you use the ferment function to prove a sourdough crust you've made from scratch.
Why is Cosori a good brand of air fryer?
If you haven't heard of COSORI before, it's a pretty big brand when it comes to best-selling Amazon air fryers, displaying seven industry awards on its product page. While reviewing these air fryers, all of them were given top marks for ease of features, cooking our air fryer recipes to a satisfactory standard, and ease of cleaning with dishwasher-safe elements.
I've tried every COSORI air fryer and they've always impressed me with major value-for-money. It's not a brand you'll find outside of Amazon or company's website, but the range has everything from family-sized fryers to compact (and surprisingly cute) options for apartments or small kitchens. If one of your reasons to buy an air fryer is the money-saving aspect, you may as well start with a budget-friendly option from COSORI. They're easy to clean and use, and just as good as some of the much more expensive brands on the market.
For a start, the COSORI L501 Air Fryer has a removable air frying insert that lifts out from the bottom of the basket. By contrast, the COSORI Air Fryer Max XL has a basket that lifts all the way out by pressing down on the hinge of the handle. Personally, I prefer the L501's style of air fryer basket, because it's a lot easier to put in the dishwasher. However, this style of air fryer does make it hard to tip onto a plate without any oils and juices spilling out from the air fryer base.
In terms of build, the COSORI Air Fryer Max XL has a plastic exterior with a front panel full of touch-sensitive presets, and the COSORI L501 air fryer has a glass top panel that will work better if you're placing the air fryer on a kitchen island as opposed to under a kitchen cabinet, where the touch control screen can be concealed in the dark. Both have a reminder to shake midway through cooking and a square cooking basket that fits large cuts of meat. However, the COSORI Air Fryer Max XL is a little larger.
Can I put tin foil in my COSORI air fryer?
All COSORI air fryers have a non-stick coating, so it's not necessary to line your appliance with aluminum if you fear food will stick to the basket. If you'd like to ensure a mess-free cooking experience, we recommend these silicone air fryer liners that are available as square or circular molds on Amazon. Otherwise, we've got a load of top tips when it comes to cleaning your air fryer.
