Cosori Air Fryers Recalled Due To Fire, Burn Risk


Air fryers have been all the rage in the past few years. An air fryer is a countertop cooking appliance that works like a convection oven. Despite the name, it does not actually fry food. Instead, it uses a fan and heating elements to produce foods that are crispy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. Air fryers are great for fish, chicken, fries, and even vegetables.

Despite its many benefits, air fryers come with risks, just like all household appliances. They can cause injuries due to defects. In fact, 2 million air fryers have recently been recalled due to a faulty wire connection. There have been reports of fires, burns, and even property damage.

So far, there have been more than 200 reports of Cosori air fryers catching fire, overheating, smoking, melting, and burning. There have been 23 reports of minor property damage as well as 10 reports of superficial burn injuries.

Cosori performed a thorough investigation of the situation and determined that the closed-end crimp connectors within the recalled air fryers pose fire and burn hazards in rare cases. The connectors are responsible for establishing electrical connections between certain wires and can overheat sometimes. The company admits to the defect, stating that it is committed to consumer safety and apologizes for any inconvenience.

The following Cosori air fryer model numbers are affected in the recall:

  • CP158-AF
  • CP158-AF-R19
  • CP158-AF-RXW

  • CAF-P581S-AUSR
  • CO137-AF
  • CO158-AF
  • CO158-AF-RXB

You can find the model numbers on the bottom label of each unit as well as the user manual that comes with the unit. The recalled units are in two sizes: 3.7 quarts and 5.8 quarts. They are sold in five colors: black, white, gray, red, and blue. All models have the Cosori logo on the front.

The recalled air fryers were sold at Best Buy, Target, and Home Depot stores across the United States. They were also sold online through various retailers, including Cosori, Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl’s, Lowes, Macy’s, QVC, Staples, Home Goods, Wayfair, Woot, and Adorama between June 2018 and December 2022. The prices ranged from $70 to $130.
