Why French Fries in Air Fryer

  • It’s simple to prepare and takes only minutes to go from frozen to fresh.
  • There is little to no cleanup after the recipe is finished.
  • Without oil, you will obtain fewer calories while maintaining the deep-fried texture.
  • It’s simple to add flavor to.

Tips on Cooking French Fries in Air Fryer

  • You don’t need to preheat your air fryer, but be aware that cooking will take longer.
  • If you’re using a non-rotating air fryer, toss your fries very well halfway through. Make sure all of the fries in the bottom of the bowl are scooped to the top, though. While if your air fryer rotates, make sure to check on the fries halfway through to see if they’re fully cooked.
  • If you use too much oil, your fries will get mushy. So be really careful.
  • Depending on how crispy or thick your fries are, you can modify the cooking time. Reduce the time for softer or thinner fries while you increase it for crispier or thicker fries.
  • Keep the fries warm. As you work through each batch, remove the fries from the air fryer basket and set them aside if you’re doing them in batches. They can be kept warm on a baking sheet in a low oven (250°F) until they’re all done.
  • You may think that thawing the fries will speed up the cooking process. However, this permits the fries to absorb more oil and become mushy. Frozen fries absorb less oil, so keep them frozen until you’re ready to serve them.

How to Cook Frozen French Fries in Air Fryer

Prepare The Air Fryer

Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit before adding the fries. Then spray the air fryer basket with the cooking oil of your preference – make sure you’re using a non-aerosol spray; avocado oil works nicely.

Add The Fries

Fill the basket with frozen fries – being careful not to overcrowd it. Season the fries with seasoning salt and pepper and a little extra oil.

Air Fry

Though there are some differences in cooking times. You can cook the fries for 12 minutes. After the time has passed, toss the basket and cook the fries for another 10 minutes, or until golden and crispy.

Cooking Time Variations

Regular Fries: 400°F. 12 to 14 minutes.

Shoestring Fries: 400°F. 7 to 9 minutes.

Waffle Fries: 400°F. 10 to 12 minutes.

Sweet Potato Fries: 400°F. 13 to 15 minutes.
