The Teflon-coated basket on the Cosori Air Fryer is non-stick and free of BPA and PFOA. The Teflon (PTFE) nonstick coating is applied to the metal that makes up the toaster oven’s interior.
Nevertheless, the manufacturer asserts that “our device does not achieve the temperature that is necessary for Teflon to be toxic to birds.” However, WITH BIRDS, I WOULD NOT USE THIS! Before learning that this product has a nonstick coating, I was intrigued by it. This will also kill my birds, which I have! BEWARE!

Aerosol spray cans are known to cause the coating on your air fryer to chip, thus we do not advise using them. It’s advisable to spend money on an oil mister or bottle of high quality.
This air fryer’s baskets have a PFOA- and PFOS-free PTFE non-stick coating. Each and every Cosori product has received FDA certification and has passed the EU Food Contact Tests, making it totally safe!
