What to Do If You Have a Recalled Cosori Air Fryer

Cosori has advised consumers with affected air fryers to contact Cosori for a free replacement air fryer or another Cosori product by registering at recall.cosori.com. You don’t need a receipt to get a replacement product, though you must confirm that your air fryer’s model number matches one from the list of recalled model numbers to complete your recall registration. You will also need to confirm manufacturing batch number and upload three images—Cosori has guidance for finding all necessary information on its recall site.

Following 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,” the company’s statement also says.
