INSTRUCTIONS IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

Follow basic safety precautions when using your air fryer. Read all instructions.

Key Safety Points

  • Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handle.
  • Use caution when turning the basket over after cooking, as the hot crisper plate may fall out and create a safety hazard.
  • Do not block any ventilation openings. Hot steam is released through openings. Keep your hands and face clear of openings.

General Safety

  • Do not immerse the air fryer housing, or cord, or plug in water or liquid.
  • Closely supervise children near your air fryer.
  • Unplug when not in use, and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts.
  • Do not use your air fryer if it is damaged, not working, or if the cord or plug is damaged. Contact Customer Support (see page 17).
  • Do not use third-party replacement parts or accessories, as this may cause injuries.
  • Do not use outdoors.
  • Do not place the air fryer or any of its parts on a stove, near gas or electric burners, or in a heated oven.
  • Be extremely cautious when moving your air fryer (or removing the basket) if it contains hot oil or other hot liquids.
  • Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Metal fragments can break off the pad and touch electrical parts, creating a risk of electric shock.
  • Do not place anything on top of your air fryer. Do not store anything inside your air fryer.
  • Do not strike or hit the top of the air fryer with hard objects, as this may cause the tempered glass to crack. Tempered glass is stronger and fractures more safely than ordinary glass, but it may shatter unexpectedly after being cracked. If you see a crack, contact Customer Support (see page 17).
  • The appliance is not to be used by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
  • Children should not play with the air fryer.
  • Cleaning and user maintenance should not be done by children without supervision.
  • This air fryer is not intended to be operated using an external timer or a separate remote-control system.
  • Only use your air fryer as directed in this manual.
  • Not for commercial use. Household use only.

While Air Frying

  • An air fryer works with hot air only. Never fill the basket with oil or fat.
  • Never use your air fryer without the basket in place.
  • Do not place oversized foods or metal utensils into your air fryer.
  • Do not overfill the air fryer basket. Heaping amounts of food may touch the heating coils and cause a fire hazard.
  • Do not touch accessories during or immediately after air frying.
  • Do not place paper, cardboard, non-heat-resistant plastic, or similar materials, into your air fryer. You may use parchment paper or foil.
  • Never put baking or parchment paper into the air fryer without food on top. Air circulation can cause paper to lift and touch heating coils.
  • Always use heat-safe containers. Be extremely cautious if using containers that aren’t metal or glass.
  • Keep your air fryer away from flammable materials (curtains, tablecloths, etc). Use on a flat, stable, heat-resistant surface away from heat sources or liquids.
  • Immediately turn off and unplug your air fryer if you see dark smoke coming out. White smoke is normal, caused by heating fat or food splashing, but dark smoke means that food is burning or there is a circuit problem. Wait for the smoke to clear before pulling the basket out. If the cause was not burnt food, contact Customer Support (page 17).
  • Do not leave your air fryer unattended while in use.
  • If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent, or similarly qualified persons to avoid a hazard.

Power & Cord

  • Do not let the power cord (or any extension cord) hang over the edge of a table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
  • Remove and discard the protective cover fitted over the power plug of the air fryer to prevent choking hazards.
  • Never use an outlet below the counter when plugging in your air fryer.
  • Keep the air fryer and its cord out of reach of children less than 8 years old.
  • Your air fryer has a polarized plug (one prong is wider than the other), which fits into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, do not use the plugin that outlet. Do not alter the plug in any way.
  • Do not let the power cord (or any extension cord) hang over the edge of a table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
  • Your air fryer should only be used with 120V, 60Hz electrical systems. Do not plug into another type of outlet.Cosori Pro LE 5.0-Quart Air Fryer User Manual-1
  • A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  • Longer extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
  • If a longer extension cord is used:
    1. The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the air fryer.
    2. The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
  • If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent, or similarly qualified persons to avoid a hazard.

Electromagnetic Fields (EMF)

The Cosori Air Fryer complies with all standards regarding electromagnetic fields (EMF). If handled properly and according to the instructions in this user manual, the appliance is safe to use based on scientific evidence available today.

GETTING TO KNOW YOUR AIR FRYER

  2. Shake the basket.

Note: Do not use this method if there is a risk of hot liquids splashing.

  1. If the basket is too heavy to shake and there are hot liquids present:
  2. Place the basket on a heat-resistant holder or surface.
  3. Use tongs to mix or flip the food.
  • When you take the basket out, the air fryer will pause cooking automatically. As a safety feature, the display will turn off until the basket is replaced.
  • When you replace the basket, cooking will automatically resume.
  • Avoid shaking longer than 30 seconds, as the air fryer may start to cool down.

What to Shake

  • Small foods that are stacked will usually need shaking, such as fries or nuggets.
  • Without shaking, foods may not be crispy or evenly cooked.
  • You can flip other foods, such as steak, to ensure even browning.

When to Shake

  • Shake or flip food once halfway through cooking, or more if desired.
  • The Shake Reminder is designed to remind you to check on your food. Tap SHAKE to turn on the Shake Reminder.

Certain cooking functions use the Shake Reminder automatically (see Cooking Functions, page 11).

  • If you do not remove the basket, the Shake Reminder will beep again after 1 minute and the display will show a solid (SHAKE).
  • The Shake Reminder will go away once you take out the basket.

Cooking Guide

Overfilling

  • If the basket is overfilled, food will cook unevenly.

Using Oil

  • Adding a small amount of oil to your food will make it crispier. Use no more than 2 US tbsp / 30 mL of oil.
  • Oil sprays are excellent for applying small amounts of oil evenly to all food items.

Food Tips

  • You can air fry any frozen foods or goods that can be baked in an oven.
  • To make cakes, hand pies, or any food with filling or batter, place food in a heat-safe container before placing it in the basket.
  • Air frying high-fat foods will cause fat to drip to the bottom of the basket. To avoid excess smoke while cooking, pour out fat drippings after cooking.
  • Liquid-marinated foods create splatter and excess smoke. Pat these foods dry before air frying.

French Fries

  • Add ½–1 US tbsp / 8–15 mL oil for crispiness.
  • When making fries from raw potatoes, soak uncooked fries in water for 15 minutes to remove starch before frying. Pat dry with a towel before adding oil.
  • Cut uncooked fries smaller for crispier results. Try cutting fries into ¼- by 3-inch / 0.6- by 7.6-cm strips.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Problem Possible Solution
The air fryer will not turn on. Make sure the air fryer is plugged in.
Push the basket securely into the air fryer.
Foods are not completely cooked. Place smaller batches of food items into the basket. If the basket is overstuffed, then the food will be undercooked.
Increase cooking temperature or time.
Foods are cooked unevenly. Foods that are stacked on top of each other or close to each other need to be shaken or flipped during cooking (see Shaking Food, page 12).
Foods are not crispy after air frying. Spraying or brushing a small amount of oil on foods can increase crispiness (see Cooking Guide, page 13).
French fries are not cooked correctly. See French Fries, page 13.
The basket will not slide into the air fryer securely. Make sure the basket is not overfilled with food.
White smoke or steam is coming out of the air fryer. The air fryer may produce some white smoke or steam when you use it for the first time or during cooking. This is normal.
Make sure the basket and the inside of the air fryer are cleaned properly and not greasy.
Cooking greasy foods will cause oil to collect beneath the crisper plate. This oil will produce white smoke, and the basket may be hotter than usual. This is normal, and should not affect cooking. Handle the basket with care.
Dark smoke is coming out of the air fryer. Immediately unplug your air fryer. Dark smoke means that food is burning or there is a circuit problem. Wait for the smoke to clear before pulling the basket out. If the cause was not burnt food, contact Customer Support (page 17).
The air fryer has a plastic smell. Any air fryer may have a plastic smell from the manufacturing process. This is normal. Follow the instructions for a Test Run (page 9) to get rid of the plastic smell. If a plastic smell is still present, please contact Customer Support (see page 17).
The display shows Error Code “E1”. There is an open circuit in the temperature monitor. Contact Customer Support (see page 17).
The display shows Error Code “E2”. There is a short circuit in the temperature monitor. Contact Customer Support (see page 17).
The display shows Error Code “E3”. The air fryer’s overheat protection has been activated. Turn off and unplug the air fryer and allow it to cool completely. If the display continues to show “E3”, contact Customer Support (see page 17).
The display shows Error Code “E4”. The air fryer has been plugged into a 220–240V outlet. Turn off and unplug the air fryer. Only use the air fryer with 120V, 60Hz outlets.

If your problem is not listed, please contact Customer Support (see page 17).
