Sometimes it’s hard to justify buying an air fryer. The first thing you might think of is counter space. The second thing you may think about is whether you will use it enough to justify the purchase. In this article, we’ll take a look at the Cosori Air Fryer 3.7 quart. This is a medium-sized air fryer that can prepare snacks as well as whole meals. Some people may find that the power cord is a bit short. But I suspect that this is a standard-length power cord. Features include optional accessories and more presets than other air fryers. This air fryer is so useful that many owners use it more than their oven. Because of its versatility and features, we give this product a 9.5/10.
You’ll be impressed with the number of pre-settings for your food so read on.

Optional Accessory Bundle
When you purchase the Cosori 3.7-Quart Air Fryer through Amazon, you can purchase a bundle that includes accessories. The accessories include (1) cake pan, (1) pizza pan, (1) multi-purpose rack with 5 skewers, (1) metal holder, (1) silicone mat, and (1) egg bite mold with a lid.

The accessory pack can also be purchased separately from Cosori or Amazon, just in case you need it later.
When preparing foods such as French fries, the Cosori 3.7 Quart Air Fryer beeps five times halfway through the cooking cycle to remind you to shake or flip your food.

BPA and PFOA Free
Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic compound that has been used in plastic products and plastic coatings. Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) is another compound used in plastics and non-stick cookware. Both of these compounds have been linked to cancer and other health problems. BPA and PFOA are not used in Cosori air fryers.
Here’s What We Don’t Like
The power cord may seem shorter than usual. It is about 40 inches long. This should be long enough to reach an outlet on your countertop. If you want to use this appliance in an apartment, mobile home, RV, or dorm room, this could be a problem.
Food Smells and Tastes Like Plastic
To prevent your food from smelling or tasting like plastic, make sure you remove all of the packaging. This includes lifting the basket and removing the foam layer between the basket and tray. Before using your air fryer for the first time, follow the set-up instructions and give it a test run.
Flimsy Release Button
There have been some complaints that the release button is too flimsy and breaks easily. The release button separates the inner basket from the outer basket and is made of plastic.
NOTE: before pressing the release button, first pull the basket and tray out and place on a flat surface. Only then should you press the release button to lift the basket out of the tray.
I feel like I need to mention something here. When researching this product, some complaints mentioned that the packages came without inner packaging to protect the air fryer. Some customers also mentioned that the air fryer that was delivered appeared to be used.
If you order this product from Amazon, be sure to check if it is new or used and follow the seller’s information.
With a medium-sized air fryer like the Cosori Air Fryer, you have the best of both worlds. You can make small meals for kids or snacks for movie nights. But you can also prepare your main meals in it. And the 40-inch cord shouldn’t be a deterrent. That length should easily reach an electrical outlet.
The best thing about the Cosori 3.7 quart air fryer is its versatility. There are so many dishes you can prepare in it, from french fries to small cakes. You won’t mind making a little space for this appliance. For these reasons, I give this a 9.5/10 rating.
