Tips For Crispy Fries





Place the fries in a single layer, with little to no touching.  Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket.

Soak fries in cool water for at least 20-30 minutes to remove the excess starch.

Cut the fries a similar size to ensure even cooking and crispiness.

Toss with just enough oil, and not too much.


Flip the fries halfway through cooking to allow all sides of the fries to crisp up fully.
