Recipe Tips

Frozen french fries in air fryer- Tips

Here you have some of the very useful and essential tips to make perfect fries!

  • The cooking time will vary depending on the size of the fries and how crispy you want them to be. For crispier or thicker fries, increase it and for thinner or softer fries, decrease it.
  • Make sure to toss or shake your air fryer basket very well midway through to ensure they don’t stick, and for an even finish.
  • Don’t spray too much oil on your fries since they’re already coated in oil in the factory.
  • If your air fryer doesn’t need to preheat, your cooking time might be longer.
  • Season your fries for a tastier finish. You’ll find some seasoning ideas at the end of the article.
  • Don’t fill the air fryer basket more than ½ to ¾ for best results (you don’t have to put them in a single layer).
  • If your basket is full, make sure you toss it more often.
