2 Million Air Fryers Recalled Due to Fire & Burn Hazards


Here’s what to do if your Cosori air fryer is part of the recall

Roughly two million Cosori air fryers are being recalled because the company says they pose a risk of fires and burns.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, if you have a Cosori air fryer in a size 3.7 or 5.8 quart, you need to stop using it immediately, look for the model number on the bottom of the unit, and head to the company’s website to see if your model is part of the recall. The units included in the recall come in black, gray, white, blue, and red, and were sold at Best Buy, Target, and The Home Depot stores nationwide, as well as online at Amazon.com, Adorama.com, Bedbathandbeyond.com, Cosori.com, eBay.com, Homegoods.com, Kohls.com, Lowes.com, Macys.com, QVC.com, Staples.com, Vesync.com, Walmart.com, Wayfair.com, Wellbots.com, and Woot.com. They were sold through December 2022 and cost between $70 and $130.

If your air fryer is one of the models included in the recall, you can get a free replacement from Cosori. You don’t need a receipt—just head to recall.cosori.com to register. You will need to submit a photo of your recalled air fryer model with its cord cut off to show it can’t be used anymore.

Prior to the recall, Cosori received more than 200 reports of the air fryers catching fire, burning, melting, overheating, and smoking. At least 10 people have sustained minor injuries, and there have been nearly two dozen reports of minor property damage.

As of Friday morning, the recalled air fryers can no longer be found on Amazon, but prior to the recall, Cosori air fryers were some of the site’s best sellers.

“After a thorough investigation, we determined that in extremely rare circumstances, the closed-end crimp connectors within the recalled air fryers, which are responsible for establishing electrical connections between certain wires, can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards,” Cosori said in a statement. “Cosori is committed to the safety of those who use and love our products, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.”
