Cosori Air Fryer Review Item: Air Fryer Chicken Drumsticks!
In order to test the air fryer, I decided to air fry some frozen chicken drumsticks. First, I preheat the air fryer to 350°F. Then, I placed the chicken drumsticks into the air fryer basket, making sure that they are spaced out evenly. Let the chicken cook for 30 minutes, then increase the temperature to 400°F for 5 minutes to brown the skin. The result turns out to be quite good, I managed to get a crispy and crunchy skin that I wanted for the chicken drumsticks.

Next, I tested the air fryer by cooking some french fries. I decide to use fresh potatoes instead of frozen ones.
I cut some Russet potatoes with a mandoline for easy, perfect sticks that will crisp up well. After that, I soaked the potatoes in cold water for about 1 hour. Changing the water once at around 20-30 minutes time.
Next, pat dries the potatoes. Make sure they are very dry so that you can get the crispy texture that you want. While waiting for the potatoes to be completely dry, preheat the air fryer to 375°F.
Lay the fries in a single layer to allow the hot air to circulate better. This is to ensure the fries cook evenly.
I cook the french fries for about 13 to 15 minutes. Monitor closely when they are cooking. Adjust the time accordingly as the temperature for different air fryer is slightly different. After 13 minutes, the result of the french fries is satisfying—crispy on the outside and soft inside.
