My Favorite Features of the Dual Blaze Air Fryer
There are so many things to love about the Dual Blaze air fryer! This air fryer is high tech, so you can do a lot of different things with it. For example, cooking chicken wings, veggies, desserts, and simple snacks have never been easier. Here’s why!
Presets and Customizable Functions
The air fryer has different presets, so that you can easily cook foods without any guesswork for the time and temp. The presets included in the Dual Blaze air fryer are:
Because not every air fryer is the same, and because preferences are different, you can easily change the preset that Cosori picked out by pressing and holding down the preset you want to change.
For example, when I made frozen fries in the Dual Blaze, I pressed on the “fries” button on the air fryer interface. The preset for fries was 385F/196C for 20 minutes. That seemed way too long to cook frozen French fries (I assumed this preset is for homemade fries). So I changed the time to 15 minutes, left the temperature at 385F/196C, and held down the “fries” preset button. The preset was changed to a time that works for me!
What does Cosori mean by “Dual Blaze”? Well, that actually means that there is a top and bottom burner in the air fryer.
This is brilliant technology because it means you no longer need to flip your food when you are cooking in the Dual Blaze air fryer! Traditional air fryers have just a top burner or heating element.
A lot of people have also wondered two things about the dual burner air fryers, does this make the cooking time faster and will my food start to burn?
Is the cooking time faster with the Dual Blaze air fryer?
I’ve been using the Dual Blaze air fryer and my Cosori Pro II air fryer for several months together, and I’ve noticed that the cooking time is actually the same or very similar between the two.
Have you tried single and double burner air fryers? I’d love to know if you’ve experienced something different!
Does food burn in the Dual Blaze air fryer?
Because the food is so much closer to two heating elements, a lot of people have heard that the food will start to burn or cause smoking from the bottom heating element.
In my experience, I have not had this issue. The bottom burner is completely covered by the air fryer basket, so neither food nor crumbs have escaped to the bottom element to start or cause burning or smoking.
Not only does the Cosori Blaze have double the amount of burners, it also has what we call “dual sensors” or automatic temperature control. This means that there are sensors in the air fryer that are gauging the internal temperature of the air fryer. It is monitoring it all times and adjusts the heat coming from the burners so that the temperature does not go above or below 3 degrees.
So what? This means that the cooking temperature will stay consistent throughout the entire cooking process. This ensures accurate and consistent cooking times and temperatures, which means more confidence in the food you are making and the product you are using.
Removable Crisper Tray
Unlike the Cosori Pro II, in which you have to have the basket and the pan in the body of the air fryer to operate, you can use the air fryer even if you remove the crisper plate.
I like to remove the crisper plate anytime I want my food most roasted or when I want it to cook in the juices.
The crisper plate is good to have inserted in the air fryer pan when you need things (like grease) to fall to the bottom of the basket and not mess with how your food is cooking.
The Dual Blaze air fryer is a smart air fryer which means it comes with a free app called VeSync. The free VeSync app allows you to operate your air fryer from a distance. Additionally, you can set up your air fryer with Alexa or other smart devices to control your air fryer from anywhere in your house with voice control.
Plus, you can name your air fryer through the app. I, of course, named our Dual Blaze air fryer “Thor”.
Cosori Dual Blaze Air Fryer Pros
In case you couldn’t tell from my extensive list of the COOL features of the Dual Blaze air fryer, let me layout some of my favorite things about the Dual Blaze, especially since I’ve been using it for several months now!
1. Plenty of Space
The Dual Blaze air fryer is bigger and better than its previous models. The Dual Blaze has a deeper basket which means there is more space you can cook with.
You can certainly get a larger whole chicken in the Dual Blaze air fryer compared to other single burner air fryers. And, because of the smart technology and real-time temperature adjustments, you can bet that the chicken will cook thoroughly and completely.
2. No flipping or shaking required
Because there is a lower heating element, that means you don’t need to flip or shake the food. This is so important, especially if you are looking to save time in the kitchen. The second burner allows food to more even and is what makes this air fryer stand out among its competitors.
Cooking is just easier with the Cosori Dual Blaze.
3. It’s Quiet!
One complaint that many people have had with the Pro II air fryer model is that it is so loud, buttons included! I absolutely love how much quieter the Dual Blaze model is. It’s not silent, but considering how much is going on inside the air fryer, it is amazing how quiet it actually is!
4. Dishwasher Safe
I normally like to wash my air fryer pan with hot, soapy water once I’ve finished cooking food in it. However, I also love having the assurance that I can throw it into the dishwasher at anytime!
5. Fantastic Customer Service
I love Cosori products mainly because of their fantastic customer service. Many people have shared with me how impressed they are by . They reply quickly and are ready to help you with any need.
Cosori stands by their products and are a brand that I can trust. For this reason alone, I love to recommend Cosori products to you, family, and friends.
A few additional things that I love about the Dual Blaze Air Fryer
There are so many things to love about the Dual Blaze air fryer, here are a few more honorable mentions:
- BPA and PFOA free
- Nonstick basket
- Smooth and easy to operate
- Different setting to choose from (I talk more about this in the FAQ section)
- 2 year warranty
- It’s just easier to use!
Cosori Dual Blaze Air Fryer Cons
Is the Dual Blaze air fryer perfect? No, but its close. There aren’t a lot of things I don’t like about the Dual Blaze. And as I have kept using it, I’ve loved it more and more. But, here is one thing that I am not a fan of:
1. The Crisper Plate is clunky
Maybe it is because the Cosori 5.8 quart air fryer with the removable basket tray was one of my first air fryers and has been a longstanding favorite, but I’ve had a hard time adjusting to using the crisper tray instead of the air fryer basket.
As I mentioned, I like that I take out the crisper plate and still be able to cook food in the air fryer. But it is so hard to remove! Especially when the air fryer is hot. There are two holes in the middle of the air fryer tray that I can grab to remove the tray, but it often gets stuck on the sides of the air fryer basket and feels almost impossible to remove.
I think I prefer the removable basket style like in the 5.8 quart air fryer. But I wonder if my preference will change over time and use.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does Dual Blaze mean?
The Dual Blaze in the name of this product, Cosori Dual Blaze 6.8 Quart Smart Air Fryer with 360 ThermoIQ tech, refers to the top and bottom heating elements inside the air fryer. Because there are two elements, you don’t need to flip your food to make sure that it is evenly cooked, fried, or roasted on both sides.
Are the cooking times different in the Dual Blaze than single burner air fryers?
I’ve been using the Dual Blaze air fryer and my Cosori Pro II (a single burner air fryer) for several months together, and I’ve noticed that the cooking time is actually the same or very similar between the two.
The Cosori Pro II is 1700 watts and the Dual Blaze is 1750 watts. The Dual Blaze is slightly more powerful, which means that cooking times may be a little quicker, but I haven’t seen a noticeable difference between the two.
See what I am talking about in this comparison video between the Dual Blaze and Pro II Cosori air fryers!
How do I adapt my recipes for the Dual Blaze?
The main adaptation that you need to make for the Dual Blaze air fryer is remembering to not flip or shake your food halfway through cooking.
The Dual Blaze has two burners and precise temperature control which allows for the food to cook evenly on both sides, no flipping required. Additionally, the Dual Blaze is 1750 watts, only slightly more powerful than its previous model the Cosori Pro II (1700 watts).
I’ve noticed that cooking times in the Dual Blaze are very similar (1-2 minute difference) or the same as single burner air fryers.
With that being said, you can start by decreasing the time by 1-2 minutes, then add more time as needed if you are worried about burning your food in the Dual Blaze. Use an instant read food thermometer and my internal temperature guide to know when your food is done cooking!
Will my food burn in the Dual Blaze air fryer?
In using the Dual Blaze air fryer for almost 6 months now, I have not experienced burnt food due to the lower heating elements . The bottom burner is completely covered by the air fryer basket, so you don’t need to worry about food burning on the element.
Additionally, the smart dual sensor technology of the air fryer enables the air fryer to keep a consistent temperature throughout the entire cooking process. It won’t get too hot to burn your food.
Note: of course, if you cook your food for too long or at a high temperature the natural result may be that the food starts burning.
Does the Dual Blaze cause smoking?
In using the Dual Blaze air fryer for almost 6 months now, I have not experienced smoking due to the dual heating elements . The bottom burner is completely covered by the air fryer basket, so neither food nor crumbs have escaped to the bottom element to start or cause smoking.
If you are experience smoking with your air fryer, it could be due to the oil you are using. Oils have smoke points which means that they start smoking or burning at a certain temperature. Be sure to check what the smoke point is of the oil you are using and make sure the temperature you are cooking your food at does not exceed the smoke point of the oil.
What do the different settings mean on the Cosori Dual Blaze air fryer?
The Dual Blaze air fryer has different settings, such as “air fry”, “bake”, “broil”, “roast”. What do each of these different settings mean for the Cosori Dual Blaze air fryer? Here’s your answer:
- AIR FRY: top heating element is on HIGH heat & the lower heating element is on HIGH heat
- BAKE: top heating element is on LOW heat & the lower heating element is on HIGH heat
- BROIL: top heating element is on HIGH heat & the lower heating element has NO heat
- ROAST: top heating element is on MEDIUM heat & the lower heating element is on HIGH heat
You can change the setting on your air fryer depending on how you want your food cooked. Just select the setting you want to use, then adjust the time and temperature as needed for the recipe you are making.
Note: I typically use “air fry” when I making food in the air fryer, unless otherwise stated on the recipe I make.
There are so many things to love about the Cosori Dual Blaze air fryer! I love that cooking has become even easier, that I control the air fryer from my phone or other smart device like Alexa, and that it is so simple to use.
Who knew that food could be better tasting and healthier and that cooking has become easier and simpler with the Dual Blaze?! You can get dinner, or any recipe for that matter, on the table in less time and confident with accurate results!
