What Air Fryers Are Made In America?

Welcome back to Air Fryer Bro. Today we are asking the million dollar question for many Americans….what air fryers are made in America? When you live in a country, you often like the idea of supporting your local workforce. This is where the interest comes from for American-made air fryers. It’s exactly the same in Britain. Anything made there is plastered with a ‘Made in the UK’ sticker πŸ™‚ You will see a line of proud Brits shortly after. Are there any air fryers made in the USA? Let’s find out together!

What Does Google Say?

Google is always right, isn’t it? So let’s ask Google what air fryers are made in America?
Interestingly, two relevant results show up. There is an Amazon page labelled ‘air fryer made in USA’ and a video titled ‘5 Best Air Fryers Made in USA 2020’.
What air fryers are made in America? Lets find out together.
I almost started jumping with joy! Yes, there are actually air fryers manufactured in America. But hang on, this is Google. Can we trust everything Google says blindly? Why don’t I just look into it myself just to make sure? Good idea, right? I mean I am the Air Fryer Bro, I can’t just take everything at face value!!

Let’s Do Some Research!

Looking closer at the Amazon page, the first air fryers on this page were both by GoWise USA. They even have USA in the name, so they must be made there, surely! Let’s find out for ourselves.
My first port of call would be the GoWise USA website, surely this is the best place for reliable information on the brand. After a bit of searching, I came across the ‘FAQ’ or frequently asked questions section of the website. Great!
The third question down hit the nail right on the head….
“Where are your products made? Our products are designed in the US and manufactured in China.”
Dang! made in China. Back to the drawing board then…or more likely that Amazon page πŸ™‚
The second brand on that article was Cosori, one I have covered before in my air fryer brands article. Are Cosori air fryers made in the USA? Let’s do the same research as before. But after extensive searching, I couldn’t find the info I wanted. After searching the questions on a Cosori air fryer’s Amazon product listing, I did find that someone posted that the box says ‘Made in China’ on it! Another air fryer brand struck off the Made in America list!
OK, I am losing faith with this Amazon page, so let’s just look at one more air fryer on this list. It turned out to be the Instant Vortex air fryer oven made by Instant Pot. To the Instant Pot website we go. Maybe I am blind, but I couldn’t see anything on there about where the air fryers are made. Good on GoWise USA to be the only ones so far that are clear about this on their website……..I suppose they do have USA in their name though πŸ™‚
So yet again I had to scour the question section of the Instant Pot Vortex’s Amazon listing. Is the Instant Pot Vortex made in America then? In a word….NO!
OK, Let’s move onto the YouTube video then…..maybe we will have better luck!
After perusing this video, I saw already that their top 5 list has a GoWise USA and a Cosori model in there! I already know that they are made in China! Not a great start!
Moving on, we do have some other brands on there, namely Ninja, Innsky and Yedi.
Starting with Ninja. Again their website didn’t bring up any useful information, so I found myself on the Amazon listings page, and the question and answer section (again!!). And yes, several customers confirmed that their Ninja was made in China.
I am starting to loose all hope….. are you?
On to Innsky, a rather obscure air fryer brand. This will be fun πŸ™‚ Their website was the worst yet, with very little useful information and a guy fixing a washing machine on the warranty page….even though they only sell air fryers….call me confused. You know the drill now though….Amazon….listing…..what do you reckon? Yes, made in China. The nice person from Innsky even gave a province of China, Zhejiang. If you are wondering where that is…..

See, Google does get some things right πŸ™‚

Finally, Yedi….I thought that was a monster with big feet in the snow? Maybe I am wrong πŸ™‚ Well, this time both the official website and the question and answer section of Amazon didn’t have much information, just one guy saying he thought it would be made in China because of the price.
More research is needed then! Actually, all I can find out is that they have their headquarters in Los Angeles and the President is Bobby Djavaheri. Others may assume things here, but not the Air Fryer Bro πŸ™‚

Are Any Air Fryers Made in America?

Out of all the air fryer brands that we could find out about, none of them were made in America. All those on both the Amazon page and the YouTube video were made in China. So, I think it is pretty safe to say that most air fryers are made in China.
Actually, I scoured around a lot of air fryers on Amazon, to find one that might be made somewhere other than China, and I couldn’t find any! 

Why Aren’t Air Fryers Made in America?

It seems that most commonly used domestic appliances aren’t made anywhere other than China these days, especially when it comes to the smaller domestic appliances. You might find some premium coffee makers and the like made in America, but air fryers are not really in the same league. No one is buying a premium air fryer anytime soon, so I don’t see much hope for the American-made air fryer. This is just my humble opinion, though πŸ™‚
The reality is, at the time of writing, making an air fryer in China is a lot cheaper than making one in America. Unless air fryer manufacturers come up with a good reason to take on that extra cost, they are always going to use the cheaper option. Welcome to our modern business culture πŸ™‚

  1. My sister and I have done some scouring as well. Totally disappointed! YES WE WANT AMERICAN MADE! I would rather pay a little more and support our own country than support China!

  2. My thoughts are that it wouldn’t much matter. There are a lot of parts involved and all those parts would more than likely be made in China. Similar to the auto industry, it may be ‘Assembled’ in America, but most all the parts come from some other country. Our country has sold out long ago by demanding higher pay. We are owned by China. We used to be a world class producer of many products. Now we are a world class consumer of most all products. As a senior, I remember that if something broke we fixed it. Now we throw it away and buy a new one. Shame on us.

    • Totally agree. I think a lot of countries have the exact same problem as they develop. They turn from industry to service industry πŸ™‚ And, yes, it is too easy to throw away and buy new these days!

  3. So disappointed. I really want an air fryer and don’t want to buy Chinese made. I would definitely pay a premium for American made.

  4. Any other country but China! Mexico and Canada are closer. I would buy from any other country. The Philips is also made in China.

  5. I do not want a China made air fryer! I would be willing to pay more for a made in the USA product. I really want an air fryer, but I’m going to hold out awhile to see if anyone but China can manufacture one. Thanks for gathering the information in this article. It was very helpful.

  6. I was just about to purchase an air fryer. I was super excited. So I’ve been researching the different brands to see which best fit my needs. Love your site- thank you so much for the information you provide. Long story short. I am not buying an air fryer today. If there comes a day when one is made in the USA, I’ll reconsider.

    • Hopefully a manufacturer will fill the void for a US made air fyer. Clearly, looking at the comments here, there is a market for it!

  7. Like you I search and search for Made in the USA. No such animal. Yes, absolutely I would pay more, in fact, I have made it my mission to buy USA first.

  8. I just received my third attempt to purchase a MADE IN THE USA Air Fryer. Box clearlt and boldly marked Made in China. I want to support the USA and do my best to purchase USA products. I have written to companies and my reason for return is product not made in USA. Ask them to start adfing that information.

  9. Amazing that none of the great appliance companies in the USA do not realize that there
    are thousands of Americans looking for air-fryers and other appliances that are made in the USA and are willing to price few more dollars to have the label say….”MADE IN THE USA”!
    Hey the companies….Americans are a lot smarter than you think….we are not always looking
    for the cheapest crap made in China. We rather pay 10% more from people making them in the good old U.S.A. as money spent here stays here. Wise up G.E. Kitchenaid, and other appliance companies….made them here and the people here will buy them. Thanks Bob in Stuart, Fla.

    • Thanks for your comment, it seems a lot of people share your sentiment. My question would be is 10% more enough to make a product in the USA, I am pretty sure that American wages are more than 10% higher than the equivalent wage in China. Surely it would cost at least 25% more to make an air fryer in America. Would you still be willing to foot the cost? I imagine this is the concern a lot of manufacturers have.

  10. I have noticed recently(last couple of years) that, if a manufactured product does not prominently display where it was made then it was quite likely made in China. One would think manufacturers are trying to hide or downplay the ‘made in China’ aspect. Perhaps they are embarrassed to sell such shoddy products.I would be!However, there seems to be a groundswell of consumers doing their homework on items these days. Manufacturers are putting effort into hiding the ‘made in china’ label(as if it isn’t important).So the game is on,as ‘planned obsolescence’ has been taken to a whole nutha level.
    I cannot think of one Chinese made product I have purchased over the years that I am satisfied with.So much garbage! Waste of money(and time). I’ve asked many people the same question and always the same response…long pause with no answer.
    So now,I do my homework and try my best to spend my money on items made elsewhere that are better quality.Willing to pay more fore a quality made product,as well as support the North American economy.Not an easy task these days. Latest purchase was a German made vacuum. Time will tell if it was the right choice of course,but I felt confident after researching that this was a quality item.Did it cost more than the ‘made in China’ brands(with U.S. names)? Yes,but how many vacuums am I expected to buy in my life?
    Anyway,the Air Fryer concept seems like a good idea,but now ,after knowing where they are made,I am hesitant to purchase one.I don’t really need one anyway. My experience of buying so many poorly made Chinese items has created a built in bias,you know what they say? (74 times burned,75th time shy!) So, I have real doubts that any fryer I purchase will function properly and/or won’t last over time and ultimately end up in the landfill like the rest of the Chinese items I have bought. Gives new meaning to what a Chinese Junk is.

  11. From what i have seen i would pay double the price and maybe more for a usa made air fryer. But i can say that i am done buying China made cr-p.

  12. im not a tree hugger…. well maybe a closet tree hugger lol… I am tired of tossing my money out of the country on disposable chinese garbage. im slowly going all American. Air fryer is next on the list, and having no luck so far… you would think it wouldnt be this hard. I will send a note to amazon to beg for a made in the usa button.. but I doubt ill get very far with that.. maybe if we get enough demand πŸ™‚

    • Hi Doug, thanks for your comment. If you look at the other comments here you will see there are many that feel the same way. Hopefully one day a manufacturer will take on the challenge πŸ™‚

  13. I would and my parents and both of my brothers would. We are still very proud of our people and would even pay more for products made in the United States of America. I can’t even find a vacuum made in the United States. What will our do> Where will they work?

      • I know what you mean, but it is quite common for countries to ditch manufacturing for the service industry when they become developed. Companies deem it too expensive to pay developed country wages to make their appliances etc. Especially as most consumers are often driven by price these days!

  14. It saddens me that we cannot manufacture Air Fryers in the United States . I’m hoping there is someone out there that can design one at reasonable price. As much as I love my air fryer I will not be purchasing another one!!! Thank you for sharing this information.

  15. I was very disappointed a couple years ago, my parents wanted an air fryer for Christmas, I saw the Go Wise USA and thought it was made in USA since it’s in the name, but I was wrong. I wasn’t happy when it arrived and was made in China.
    I’d love to see some more products made in USA

  16. I have been looking for USA made products for a couple of months. It is very difficult to find a lot of items that aren’t made in China. I know I would definitely pay 25% percent or more. Quality would be better and maybe we would be a less wastefull nation. Buying less but taking pride knowing what we did buy was American made.

  17. It’s so true. With almost everything you buy today – “Made in China” and most of the time the quality is not very good. However the price is lower. This is the world we live in where everyone want’s to shop at Big Box stores or Amazon and pay a little as possible. The market listened and sent all manufacturing over to China who said we will make it for ten cents on the dollar. Now we are in the crap trap.

  18. Americans must be willing to pay alot more for any appliance not made by the Chicoms. The Chicoms employ (ha, employ, what a joke) slave labor. We Americans have to be willing to step up and forgo a few fast food meals so we can offset the price of appliances made here ( the few that are). If enough of us do that American genius will figure out a way to provide products that are affordable to the cusomer and profitable for the manufacturer.
