Two million Cosori air fryers are being recalled due to safety concerns in the US, Canada and Mexico. The firm is voluntarily recalling and replacing certain models of air fryer after an investigation identified that the closed-end crimp connectors within the recalled air fryers – responsible for establishing electrical connections between certain wires – can pose an increased risk of fire and burn hazards.
Cosori makes some of the best air fryers, and is one of the leading air fryer brands in the US as a result, so there are lots of these models out there. In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada, and Mexico Procuraduría Federal del Consumidor (Profeco), Cosori has announced a consumer notice. Here are the affected air fryers, and what to do if you have one.
Which Cosori air fryers are affected?
The affected models were sold between June 2018 through December 2022 for between $70 and $130. They were sold at Best Buy, Target and The Home Depot stores nationwide, along with popular online resellers such as Amazon, Lowe's and Walmart.
The units are 3.7qt and 5.8qt and were sold in black, gray, white, blue and red colors.

Cosori is offering a replacement air fryer to all affected customers free of charge. Even if the air fryer isn't in a working condition or you don't have the original receipt you still claim for a replacement. And if you don't want a replacement air fryer then you can chose from a selection of other Cosori products including a kettle, toaster or pressure cooker, depending on the model of your air fryer.
To check the status of your replacement you can login with your registered email and registration number. If you have any further questions, there's the toll-free recall support hotline at 888-216-5974 Monday - Friday, 8 am - 5 pm EST that you can reach out on.
Does this mean that all Cosori air fryers are not safe?
Rest assured; you can still cook french fries in an air fryer, french toast in an air fryer and even fudgy brownies in an air fryer in a Cosori air fryer as long as it's not affected. Here's what Cosori has to say about offering this recall:
