As at home chefs, busy parents and certified foodies well know, there’s nothing better than a good time-saving hack — especially in the kitchen. Luckily, an air fryer is one underrated kitchen appliance that not only creates delicious meals in minutes, it also significantly cuts down on the need for oil and fat while you’re cooking.

Air fryers typically cook food faster than a conventional oven and use 85 per cent less fat than a regular deep fryer, making them the perfect choice for health-conscious chefs. Right now, shoppers can score one of Amazon Canada’s top rated air fryers for less, saving 28 per cent on the COSORI Smart WiFi Air Fryer.

For multitasking cooks, this air fryer also features a helpful shake reminder for an even fry and a keep warm function if you need your food well kept for a while. As an added bonus, its nonstick basket is removable and dishwasher safe, made with PFOA-free and BPA-free materials.

What people are saying

Beloved for its ease of use and value for money, Amazon Canada shoppers can’t get enough of this Cosori air fryer. It’s already earned an impressive 4.7-star rating from nearly 1,000 customer reviews, so it’s easy to see why chefs everywhere are loving this little device.

"Why did we wait so long?" reads one five-star review. They went on to call this air fryer an "exceptional unit" that tackled a wide range of dishes, from banana bread and Brussels sprouts to salmon and french fries. 

Another reviewer noted that at first the wifi feature seemed "gimmicky," but they were surprised to find it "so dang convenient." They explained that having the ability to preheat the air fryer from your phone and receive a notification when it's time to shake or remove your food make this a worthwhile purchase.

Reviewers have cautioned that since this machine is large and requires a fair bit of air flow, you'll want to ensure that you have enough counter space so that the machine doesn't overheat when in use.
