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 🙂 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’.
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 🙂
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 🙂
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 🙂 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 🙂
