Air fryers are becoming more and more popular overtime. There are hundreds of types, versions, and features out there, so it can be hard to decide which air fryer is the best for your needs. In this article we will go over Cosori, one of the best air fryer brands, and compare the Pro II 5.8 Quart Air Fryer vs the brand new Dual Blaze 6.8 Quart Air Fryer.
If you have been keeping your eye on the Dual Blaze and aren’t sure if it’s worth the money, or just want to find out more information about either of these air fryers, you’ve come to the right place.
First, let’s start with comparing the price. The Dual Blaze 6.8 Qt is $180, whereas the Pro II 5.8 Qt is $140. You might be thinking, what makes the Dual Blaze different and why is it more expensive?
Well, for starters, the Dual Blaze has two burners: the standard bottom and another one on top. This new feature was made to ensure the food gets cooked evenly without needing to shake the basket during the cooking process. The temperature of both burners change depending on the setting you set the air fryer to. For example, the “Air Fry” setting will set both burners to high heat, the “Bake” setting will set the upper burner to low heat and the bottom burner on high heat, the “Broil” setting will set the upper burner to high heat but no heat for the bottom burner, and the “Roast” setting will set the upper burner to a medium heat on the upper with a high heat on the bottom burner.
Another key difference is the capacity. The Blaze II wins by far, as the 6.8 qt basket serves 4-6 people, being Cosori’s largest basket size, whereas the 5.8 qt in the Pro II serves 3-5 people.
Both versions come with a 2 year warranty and access to hundreds of recipes on the Cosori app, as well as smart control features.
The Dual Blaze also comes with another advantage: no more preheating. Because of the double burners, the air fryer heats up almost instantly to the temperature you set it to.
Both Cosori air fryers are top notch quality, but if you are looking to save time flipping and shaking food, have a larger basket size, and have an upgraded air fryer, we recommend the Dual Blaze 6.8 Qt Air Fryer.
