IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

Follow basic safety precautions when using your air fryer. Read all instructions.
Key Safety Points

Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handle.
Only press the basket release button with the baskets resting flat on any level, heat-resistant surface.
The handle is attached to the inner basket, not the outer basket. When you press the basket release button, the outer basket will drop.
Do not block any ventilation openings. Hot steam is released through openings. Keep your hands and face clear of openings.

General Safety

  • Do not immerse the air fryer housing or plug in water or liquid.
  • Closely supervise children near your air fryer. · Unplug when not in use, and before cleaning.
    Allow cooling before putting on or taking off parts. · Do not use your air fryer if it is damaged, not working, or if the cord or plug is damaged. Contact Customer Support
  • Do not use third-party replacement parts or accessories, as this may cause injuries.
  • Do not use outdoors.
  • Do not place the air fryer or any of its parts on a stove, near gas or electric burners, or in a heated oven..
  • Be extremely cautious when moving your air fryer (or removing the baskets) if it contains hot oil or other hot liquids.
  • Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Metal fragments can break off the pad and touch electrical parts, creating a risk of electric shock.
  • Do not place anything on top of your air fryer. Do not store anything inside your air fryer.
  • Only use your air fryer as directed in this manual.
  •  Not for commercial use. Household use only.

While Air Frying

  • An air fryer works with hot air only. Never fill the baskets with oil or fat.
  • Never use your air fryer without the baskets in place.
  • Do not place oversized foods or metal utensils into your air fryer.
  • Do not place paper, cardboard, non-heat-resistant plastic, or similar materials into your air fryer. You may use parchment paper or foil.
  • Never put baking or parchment paper into the air fryer without food on top. Air circulation can cause the paper to lift and touch heating coils.
  • Always use heat-safe containers. Be extremely cautious if using containers that aren’t metal or glass.
  • Keep your air fryer away from flammable materials (curtains, tablecloths, etc). Use on a flat, stable, heat-resistant surface away from heat sources or liquids.
  • Immediately turn off and unplug your air fryer if you see dark smoke coming out. White smoke is normal, caused by heating fat or food splashing, but dark smoke means that food is burning or there is a circuit problem. Wait for the smoke to clear before pulling the baskets out. If the cause was not burnt food, contact Customer Support (page 24).
  • Do not leave your air fryer unattended while in use.

Plug & Cord

  • Your fryer has a polarized plug (one prong is wider than the other), which fits into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, do not use the plugin that outlet. Do not alter the plug in any way.
  • Do not let the power cord (or any extension cord) hang over the edge of a table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
  • Your air fryer should only be used with 120V, 60Hz electrical systems. Do not plug into another type of outlet.

Note: This fryer uses a short power-supply cord to reduce the risk of entangling or tripping. Use extension cords with care. The marked electrical rating of the extension cord must be as great as the rating of the fryer (see page 2).
Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) The Cosori Air Fryer complies with all standards regarding electromagnetic fields (EMF). If handled properly and according to the instructions in this user manual, the appliance is safe to use based on scientific evidence available today.

Air Frying

  • Do not place anything on top of your air fryer. This disrupts airflow and causes poor air frying results. [Figure 3.1]

  • When taking the baskets out of the air fryer, be careful of hot steam, and do not press the basket release button.

Preset Settings

  • You can customize time (1­60 minutes) and temperature (170°­400°F / 77°­205°C), unless noted.
  • Results may vary. Check out our Reference Guide and Recipe Book for a guide to customizing presets for perfect results.

* See Shaking Food (page 17).
** See Cooking Guide (page 18) for more tips on air frying french fries.

Shaking Food
How to Shake

  • During cooking, take the baskets out of the air fryer and shake, mix, or flip the food.

A. To shake food:

  1. Hold the baskets just above a heat-resistant surface for safety purposes. Do not press the basket release button.
  2. Shake the baskets.

B. If the baskets are too heavy to shake:

  1. Place the baskets on a heat-resistant holder or surface.
  2. Separate the baskets. Make sure no liquids are dripping from the inner basket.
  3. Carefully shake the inner basket.

Note: Do not use this method if there is a risk of hot liquids splashing.
C. If the baskets are too heavy to shake and there are hot liquids present:

  1. Place the baskets on a heat-resistant holder or surface.
  2. Use tongs to mix or flip the food.
  • When you take the baskets out, the air fryer will pause cooking automatically. As a safety feature, the display will turn off until the baskets are replaced.
  • When you replace the baskets, cooking will automatically resume.
  • void shaking longer than 30 seconds, as the air fryer may start to cool down.

What to Shake

  • Small foods that are stacked will usually need shaking, such as fries or nuggets.
  • Without shaking, foods may not be crispy or evenly cooked.
  • You can flip other foods, such as steak, to ensure even browning.

When to Shake

  • Shake or flip food once halfway through cooking, or more if desired.
  • Certain presets use the Shake Reminder (see Preset Settings, page 14).

Shake Reminder

  • The Shake Reminder will alert you with 5 beeps, and “((SHAKE))” will blink on the display.
  • If you do not remove the baskets, the Shake Reminder will beep again after 1 minute and the display will show a solid “((SHAKE))”.
  • The Shake Reminder will go away once you take out the baskets.

Cooking Guide
Overfilling

  • If the basket is overfilled, food will cook unevenly.
  • Food should not be filled over the “MAX” line of the inner basket. [Figure 5.1] Do not pack in food.

Do not overfill
Using Oil

  • Adding a small amount of oil to your food will make it crispier. Use no more than 2 US tbsp / 30 mL of oil.
  • Oil sprays are excellent for applying small amounts of oil evenly to all food items.

Food Tips

  • You can air fry any frozen foods or goods that can be baked in an oven.
  • To make cakes, hand pies, or any food with filling or batter, place food in a heat-safe container before placing in the baskets.
  • Air frying high-fat foods will cause fat to drip to the bottom of the baskets. To avoid excess smoke while cooking, pour out fat drippings after cooking.
  • Liquid-marinated foods create splatter and excess smoke. Pat these foods dry before air frying.

French Fries

  • Add ½­1 US tbsp / 15 mL oil for crispiness.
  • When making fries from raw potatoes, soak uncooked fries in water for 15 minutes to remove starch prior to frying. Pat dry with a towel before adding oil.
  • Cut uncooked fries smaller for crispier results. Try cutting fries into ¼- by 3-in / 0.6- by 7.6-cm strips.

Note: For more from the Cosori Kitchen, check out our Recipe Book and Tips from the Chef.

ACCESSORIES

You can purchase more accessories for your air fryer from Cosori’s online store. Go to cosori.com for more information.

Note:

  • Always clean the air fryer baskets and interior after every use.
  • Lining the outer basket with foil may make cleanup easier.
  1. Turn off and unplug the air fryer. Allow it to cool completely before cleaning. Pull out the baskets for faster cooling.
  2. Wipe the outside of the air fryer with a moist cloth, if necessary.
  3. The baskets are dishwasher safe. You can also wash the baskets with hot, soapy water and a non-abrasive sponge. Soak if necessary.
    Note: The baskets have a nonstick coating. Avoid metal utensils and abrasive cleaning materials.
  4. For stubborn grease:
    a. In a small bowl, mix 2 US tbsp / 30 mL of baking soda and 1 US tbsp / 15 mL of water to form a spreadable paste.
    b. Use a sponge to spread the paste on the baskets and scrub. Let the baskets sit for 15 minutes before rinsing.
    c. Wash baskets with soap and water before using.
  5. Clean the inside of the air fryer with a slightly moist, non-abrasive sponge or cloth. Do not immerse in water. [Figure 6.1] If needed, clean the heating coil to remove food debris.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Problem Possible Solution
The air fryer will not turn on. Make sure the air fryer is plugged in.
Push the baskets securely into the air fryer.
Foods are not completely cooked. Place smaller batches of ingredients into the inner basket. If the basket is overstuffed, then ingredients will be undercooked.
Increase cooking temperature or time.
Foods are cooked unevenly Ingredients that are stacked on top of each other or close to each other need to be shaken or flipped during cooking (see Shaking Food, page 17).
Foods are not crispy after air frying. Spraying or brushing a small amount of oil on foods can increase crispiness (see  Cooking Guide, page 18).
French fries are not cooked correctly. See French Fries, page 18.
Baskets will not slide into the air fryer securely. Make sure the basket is not overfilled with food.
Make sure the inner basket is securely inside the outer basket.
White smoke is coming out of the air  fryer. The air fryer may produce some white smoke when you use it for the first time.  This is normal.
Make sure the baskets and the inside of the air fryer are cleaned properly and not greasy.
Cooking greasy foods will cause oil to leak into the outer basket. This oil will produce white smoke, and the baskets may be hotter than usual. This is normal, and hould not affect cooking. Handle baskets with care.
Dark smoke is coming out of the air  fryer. Immediately unplug your air fryer. Dark smoke means that food is burning or there is a circuit problem. Wait for the smoke to clear before pulling the baskets out. If the cause was not burnt food, contact Customer Support (page 25).
The air fryer has a plastic smell. Any air fryer may have a plastic smell from the manufacturing process. This is normal. Follow the instructions for a Test Run (page 12) to get rid of the plastic smell. If a plastic smell is still present, please contact Customer Support (see page  24).
Display shows Error Code “E1”. There is an open circuit in the temperature monitor. Contact Customer Support (see page 24).
Display shows Error Code “E2”. There is a short circuit in the temperature monitor. Contact Customer Support  (see page 24).

If your problem is not listed, please contact Customer Support (see page 24).
