How long do you cook French fries in Air Fryer (Time and Temperature)
This will depend on the size and thickness of the fries. Frozen fries cook any where between 10 and 15 mins for 400°F / 204°C
Thin cut fries like shoe strings cooks for 10 - 12 mins while thick cut fries like waffle fries, regular cut French fries, and crinkle cut fries cook for up to 15 mins.
The quantity of fries in the air fryer basket will also determine the length of time it takes to cook for instance, ½ pound of frozen fries will cook faster than 1 pound because the smaller quantity will allow for more air and heat circulation.
Air fryers differ in level of heat, so it would be a good idea to keep an eye on the first batch if this is your first time using your brand of air fryer.
- No need for oil. The frozen fries are precooked and already pre fried. Just air fry them as is and watch then come out slightly oiled and crispy.
- DO NOT Overcrowd the basket: this is crucial to getting crispy fries.
- Shake the basket often at 5 minutes intervals to help the frozen fries cook evenly.
- My Air fryer doesn’t require preheating however be aware that second batches tend to cook faster because the Air fryer is already hot.
