I used to bake my frozen french fries to avoid the extra oil, but they never quite hit the mark in terms of taste and texture. Switching to an air fryer changed everything. Now, my fries are perfectly crispy and delicious every time, and I feel better about serving them to my family.

Air frying has changed the way I cook so many things. From steak to chicken, and even pizza, the air fryer makes them faster, healthier, and so much better.

Craving those delicious, salty, and crispy french fries but want a healthier option? Look no further! Air frying is the perfect solution for guilt-free indulgence. These air-fried frozen french fries taste just like your favorite fast food fries but with much less oil. They’re a healthier alternative without compromising on taste.

What Size Air Fryer is Best for French Fries?

The size of the air fryer can significantly impact the cooking results. If you want to achieve crispy, golden french fries, it’s essential to find an air fryer with a large capacity that allows you to cook in a single layer.

Cooking fries in a single layer ensures even heat distribution and prevents overcrowding, which is crucial for getting that perfect crispiness.

Initially, finding an air fryer with a large capacity in one layer was challenging because many models on the market focused on increasing height to expand cooking space. However, this approach is flawed. Single-layer cooking is key to achieving the best results, as it allows for even air circulation around each fry, ensuring they cook uniformly and become perfectly crispy.

But now, we have the Typhur Dome air fryer, which features a dome-shaped design inspired by professional pizza ovens. This breakthrough innovation has made it possible to cook large quantities of food faster and more evenly, surpassing all other traditional air fryers on the market and setting a new technical standard in the category. It can even cook a 12-inch pizza in one batch.

How to Cook Frozen French Fries in Air Fryer

  1. Preheat Your Air Fryer

    Set your air fryer to 345°F/175°C and let it preheat for about 3-5 minutes. Preheating ensures the fries cook evenly and get crispy results.

  2. Prepare the Fries

    Spread the frozen fries in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Avoid overcrowding to ensure even cooking. If desired, lightly spray the fries with cooking oil for extra crispiness.

  3. Cook

    Air fry the fries for 10-20 minutes (shoestring fries: 12 minutes; crinkle cut/waffle fries: 15 minutes). Shake the basket halfway through cooking to ensure all the fries cook evenly. Depending on the thickness and type of fries, you may need to adjust the cooking time slightly.

  4. Season

    Once the fries are done, immediately season them with salt or your favorite seasoning while they’re still hot. This helps the seasoning adhere to the fries better.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to thaw the fries before air frying?

No, there’s no need to thaw. Just take them straight from the freezer to the air fryer.

Can I use fresh potatoes instead of frozen fries?

Absolutely! Just cut them into fries, soak them in water for 30 minutes, pat dry, and follow the same steps.

How can I make my fries even crispier?

Spraying a little bit of olive oil and ensuring you don’t overcrowd the basket will help achieve maximum crispiness.
