Capacity and Size
The Ninja Foodi DZ401 has a 10-quart capacity, making it one of the largest air fryers on the market. However, be aware that this is divided into two baskets, 5-quart each. The COSORI 6.8Qt air fryer is smaller, with a 6.8-quart capacity, but it is a single basket air fryer.
Both units have square baskets, which offer more space than a round basket. The Ninja Foodi has two 5-quart baskets, while the COSORI basket is 6.8 quarts. The difference in size is not that significant, but it may be important if you have a large family or often cook for large crowds.
Speaking of the footprint, the COSORI is a bit taller and deeper than the Ninja Foodi, but it’s also narrower, as Ninja has two baskets to accommodate. Look for exact dimensions in the comparison table below.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we cannot overlook that Cosori was the winner of several design awards last year, including Red Dot, IF Design, and Good Design for the COSORI 5.8Qt Air Fryer. It is easy to see why – the sleek, minimalist design with stainless steel housing is not only beautiful but functional as well. This model might not be as sleek, but it still can be a nice addition to your kitchen.
The Ninja DZ401, on the other hand, is more of a traditional air fryer design. It has a large, square body with a gunmetal grey matte finish and chrome-looking basket handles. We really loved the look of this unit, but it might not be the right fit if you are looking for a more modern design.
