REVIEW – Several years ago, I tried my first air fryer, and loved the way it cooked and the fact that it did so without oil and other unhealthy additions. Over the years, these devices have improved and are able to cook entire meals still in a healthy and tasty way. For the past few months, my wife has been hinting about needing to replace the Air Fryer we had with something with more capabilities, automation, and capacity. Enter the Cosori Dual Blaze 6.8QT Smart Air Fryer.
What is it?
The Cosori Dual Blaze 6.8QT Smart Air Fryer features powerful 360 ThermoIQ Technology and convenient smart capabilities. It boasts a sleek, compact design with a touchscreen and a companion app.
