The Accessible Air Frier: Cosori Pro II – Second Generation Smart Device
Yo, Amazon device, set air fryer to 400 degrees.
I can’t start the air fryer when the door is open.
Aha. I have the basket out, so I’ll put the basket into place and try it again. Safety first. So on some recipes, you may have to preheat your air fryer, and this feature works just as easy as starting it up. You just say, Yo, Amazon device, preheat air fryer to 400 degrees.
Preheating air fryer to 400 degrees .
Yo, Amazon device. Stop air fryer.
Yo, Amazon device, set air fryer to 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
Air frying for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
And another little feature from the app. It sends me a text message when the food is done cooking.
V-E-S-Y-N-C, now, air fryer, your food is ready. Enjoy.
Welcome to Blind Abilities. I’m Jeff Thompson. Air Fryer, just got one and it’s accessible. Yeah, it’s always been a thing to try and label it and market and figure out what’s going on all the time and to get it just right so you can use bumps and stuff like that. But, mmm, so I got the Cosori Pro II, and that’s C-O-S-O-R-I Pro II, it’s a Roman numeral two. It’s a second generation smart device from Cosori, and it works great. It’s a 5.8 quart basket, so it’s great for two to four people. Dishwasher safe, and the basket is a two-piece unit. One is a box where everything that falls through the basket gets contained in the box. Now both of these do get hot, so you wanna be cautious where you’re setting it down. I like to set it onto the stove or onto a hot pad of sorts. I highly suggest that you have this area open, ready to receive your air fryer basket in advance, because once you pull it out, you wanna know exactly where you’re gonna go with it. At this point, you have an option. You can keep them all contained, the box and the basket, or you can press with your thumb, on the safety device you press with your thumb and boom, you can separate the basket and lift it up. It’s a lot lighter, easier to maneuver and you can either dump it into a bowl, onto a plate, or set it aside. Now the box part of it will have any shrapnel that fell down to the bottom and you wanna set that over into the sink area, but you wanna be cautious because if any grease from the food has fallen into it, it could be still plenty hot, so be aware of that. And here’s the neatest thing about the Cosori Pro II Smart Air Fryer. I can just ask my smart device, set air fryer to 400 degrees for 10 minutes, and boom.
Air frying for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
I’m off and cooking, or if you want to preheat your air fryer as some recipes may call for, you can just say preheat air fryer to 350 degrees.
Preheating air fryer.
There you go. You can actually ask it to stop cooking, stop air fryer, and the list goes on. And when you get the skill from your smart device, it’ll have a list of commands that you can use. And setting all this up was pretty easy. I went in through the app store and downloaded the VSync app, navigated around, found out where I could then connect up to my WiFi. Once I connected up to my wifi, I then went into my Amazon device and enabled the skill from VSync. Once the skill was loaded, I was off and cooking. It’s highly suggested that you clean the basket before you start using it, so I washed it all up, cleaned it up, and it has a preheat cycle that they want you to do to burn out some of the metal oils or whatever they do from the factory. But yeah, you wanna preheat it to 400 degrees for five minutes, let it cool down for 10 minutes and then preheat it to 400 degrees once again, and you should be ready to go. Some foods that have been cooked in there are pork chops, just spritz on a little bit of olive oil and put some almond flour on it, little seasoning and boom, there you go. Tater tots, onion rings, pizzas, sausages. A nice thing about this is you’re not doing it in grease, so you’re saving yourself a lot of calories from grease, and it’s probably better for you. And if you need to find recipes, just ask your smart device how to cook something on an air fryer, and they’ll come up with a lot of suggestions, a lot of recipes that you’ll find. The resources are endless. It’s just a handy device to use whether you’re off to college, in an apartment or at home. An air fryer is a nice, convenient and fast way to cook the foods that you like. So check it out, it’s a Cosori Pro II on Amazon. I got mine for $139. I don’t know if the prices change or if they go on sale, but that was a reasonable price for me with the accessibility built in that I needed. Overall, the Cosori Pro II Smart Air Fryer with the accessible app that you can download from the App Store or Google Play Store, and the smart device skill, which you can enable from either your Amazon or Google device. And yeah, it just works great. So there you go. Happy cooking.
