Expert Tips

  • Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings.
  • Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start.
  • If potato sticks are longer than 4 inches, they can be difficult to redistribute in the air fryer basket when shaking. We recommend cutting extra-long potato sticks in half crosswise.
  • Shaking the air fryer basket during the cooking process redistributes potatoes and helps ensure evenly browned French fries.
  • If you like salty French fries, feel free to sprinkle extra salt on fries as soon as they come out of the air fryer.
