No matter how comfortable you may be in the kitchen, the right tools make all the difference. Whether you're a seasoned chef or a beginner that's eager to learn, multipurpose kitchen appliances can help you create your favourite dishes. Not only do they cut down on meal prep but these handy kitchen gadgets also take up less space and can help cut down on the amount of oil used to get the same great taste, meaning you'll consume less fat.
One of Amazon's bestselling multipurpose cooking tools is the 12-in-1 Cosori Air Fryer Toaster Oven Combo, on sale now for 20 per cent off.
What is it?
The Cosori Air Fryer and Toaster Oven combo unit is a 12-in-1 countertop convection that allows you to prepare foods with up to 85% fat than traditional fried foods.
Cosori’s meal prep presets include: pizza, roast, air fry, toast, bagel, bake, broil, cookies, rotisserie, dehydrate, ferment and warming. The spacious 32 quart oven can fit up to six slices of toast or a 13 inch pizza, making it a great option for families.
In addition to the convection oven, Cosori includes a recipe booklet and six cooking accessories, including a food tray, rotisserie fork and handle, wire rack and fried basket.
What people are saying
Cosori's multipurpose cooker has earned a 4.4-star rating based on more than 200 customer reviews, and has earned the title as an Amazon best-seller in roasters.
The 12-in-1 convection oven has been called "easy to use" by Amazon shoppers who say that it "actually delivers" in terms of cooking power.
One shopper wrote that having the Cosori unit was like having a "second oven" in the home. Although it's not large enough to tackle big cooking jobs, it is large enough to prepare a Christmas ham.
"Much more versatility," they wrote of their oven, adding that cooking their own rotisserie chicken has "made it worth" the purchase.
"Air fry, baking and roasts have all been excellent," another said.
"We use it daily for everything, from toast to dinner," a shopper wrote.
Although there are lots of positives to Cosori's unit, there are some downsides, particularly its size. The 12-in-1 is might not be ideal if you have a small kitchen, since it will take up considerable counter space. However, some shoppers have said that if your space isn't large enough for a large cook-top, it might be worth having the Cosori 12-in-1 if you're looking to prepare larger quantities of food at once.
Other shoppers have said that the air fry function cooks food rather quickly. In order to ensure it doesn't overcook or burn, you'll want to keep an eye on the unit until you're familiar with cooking speeds and temperatures.
If you're someone who is used to cooking for a family and tired of investing in multiple appliances, Cosori's 12-in-1 Air Fryer and Toaster On might be for you. The multipurpose cooking tool can perform almost every cooking function you need to make a meal that your family will love. However, if you're short on space or preparing food for one or two people, this might be too big to suit your needs.
