COSORI 5.8-Quart Air Fryer Max XL Review (CP158-AF)

COSORI CP158-AF is one of the best selling air fryers in the world but does it deserve to be #1? Let’s find out!


COSORI CP158-AF can cook in temperatures from 170°F to 400°F and has 5.8 quart capacity. It does cook really well which partially answers why this air fryer is so popular. Food comes out tasting great and crunchy on the outside including the meat which is also tender and juicy inside.

COSORI CP158-AF 5.8 quart air fryer has 13 presets (steak, chicken, seafood, shrimp, bacon, frozen foods, french fries, vegetables, root vegetables, bread, desserts, preheat and keep warm) that make cooking simpler. Presets work well most of the time but sometimes you might need to do some slight temperature or time adjustments.

COSORI CP158-AF also doesn’t warm up your kitchen and housing doesn’t get hot like it does with some air fryers. Still, the housing can get a bit warm, but never so hot you would burn your hand by touching it.


Air fryer itself isn’t loud when cooking. Sure, you can hear the fan running, but it’s rather quiet. What is loud is the beeping. It’s completely understandable when it does so when cooking has finished, but it can be annoying if it beeps loudly every time you press a button.

Control panel

COSORI CP158-AF 5.8 quart air fryer has LCD display and touch-sensitive buttons. Control panel is intuitive and simple to use.


Cooking basket is removable and features PFOA and BPA free nonstick coating.


COSORI CP158-AF 5.8 quart air fryer won 2019 reddot award.


COSORI CP158-AF is not the best air fryer you can buy as there are more advanced models, but those are also more expensive. For the money COSORI CP158-AF is a really good air fryer that cooks well and is simple to use making it a great value for money.
