[Amazon.ca] COSORI Smart WiFi Air Fryer 5.8QT- 147.36$ - All time low per 3Camel

Been looking for a decent Air Fryer for a while now, skipped on the foodi Air Fyer due to some users mentionning difficulties with cleaning.

This version is highly reviewed and at all all-time low (34 cents off all time at time of posting) per 3camel. https://imgur.com/a/FUjY4QP

Some users have mentioned that Wifi can be glitchy, however, at this price point, I believe it is a worthwhile extra.

Non-wifi version available @ 157.99 after 10$ coupon (more expensive than wifi version) : https://www.amazon.ca/COSORI-Electric-P ... B07N3SHJRM

Other than price is this as good as the highly coveted Philips?

I've been using my Phillips air fryer 4-6x per week since 2017. It has a single mechanical knob, no screen, no touch buttons and no Wi-Fi. With the amount of heat and grease that these machines get exposed to, I can't imagine all those electronics surviving long term. Just my 2 cents.

This is a bad deal. WIFI model SUCKS, the buttons are unresponsive. Do not purchase this at all costs you will definitely regret it.

The normal version is 100x better, and is a better purchase than the Philips air fryer (unless you have zero budget issues, then Philips is hands down the best choice).

While I tend to agree, the Philips is more than double the price ... Perhaps the analog model @139.99 would be a viable alternative for those looking for simplicity : https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07T5JTWP5

Agreed, it is hard to recommend Phillips because its overpriced in today's market. In 2017 there weren't many options. I was mostly suggesting to buy a more analog model and skip the gimmicks.

Cosori is a great air fryer, I have the model with no Wifi and we use it few times a week. I imagine Philips is good but at double the price, it's not that good :)

I highly suggest getting this airfryer. It is hands down the best airfryer i have ever owned. currently out of stock but i would wait!

Note that the basket is ceramic coated vs teflon (nonstick coating)

Bear in mind that the US website has some well known issues when ordering in Canadian dollar which results in a major discount for us. Try searching threads about Shark or Ninja.

Been using the normal version for over a year now. Very satisfied.

p.s. we don't really take good care of it but it's still running smooth.

What other air fryers have you owned that this could compare to?

I can't think of literally any time where I've ever said that I wanted WIfi in my convection oven.
In fact, I can't think of a time where I want Wifi in most of my appliances.

What in tarnation are people using Wifi for on this?

Philips is highly coveted? It's the stupidest one I've ever owned.
I HATED it with a passion.

Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

Personally, my wi-fi Anova is used around 5 times a week, all of it via wi-fi.

I set up an icebath in the morning, head out, can start it remotely and when I come home, quick sear and its ready.

I feel it depends on how you use it/your preferred way of using your appliances.

I have the original (no wireless) and the BT model myself and there's still not one time where I can think of where I've ever said "this would be awesome if I could remotely connect to it"
But then again I don't really do anything quick cooking via sous vide since I think it's a poor method.

That's why I'm trying to figure out a use case for Wifi in an oven.
Preheat? Maybe. But unless you have zero prep time, even this is unnecessary. Even then I don't preheat mine and I just adjust the cooking time.
It's not like a sous vide where it has to heat a mass of water first. Air is easy to heat.

I agree with your mention that Wi-Fi is not needed on this. But Wi-Fi was cheaper than non-wifi.

As for the anova, I’ll e.g. place my marinated steak in an ice bath in the morning - go to work - start it remotely (from work) late afternoon - arrive home, food is ready, quick sear + steamed veggies and good to go. But everybody is different, and I’m glad your method works well for you !

Cuisinart TOA-65C - digital oven
Cuisinart TOA-60C - manual knobs oven
Chefman Air Fryer Convection - manual knobs oven
Nutrichef AFAIK 42 - basket - digital

Never buying a oven style again - nice idea but a real pain in the arse for upkeep especially if your family uses the airfryer 1-3 times daily for frying and not only for reheating baked goods. For the sake of easy maintenance, basket airfryers are the way to go.

I've been wanting an air fryer big enough to do a whole roast chicken. This might be worth trying for the price and warranty. Wanted the Philips but it's $300 when on sale.

Really? I have a TOA-60C and prefer it over a basket (Philips) any day of the week. I HATED the philips with a passion.
The oven style is SO much easier to clean too.
