  • 5-6 russet potatoes
  • salt & pepper or other seasonings to taste
  • olive oil

  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel potatoes and cut into evenly sized fries. Dry potatoes very well! Coat with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt.
  3. In Batches, place fries in a single layer in the Air Fryer basket. Cook for 8 minutes. Shake basket to redistribute fries then cook another 5 minutes. Shake fries to redistribute again. Check for doneness. Cook another 3-5 minutes if needed.

Key to Success #1 – Cut Your Potatoes Evenly
One of the single most important things you can do to ensure that your homestyle Air Fryer French Fries cook evenly is to cut them evenly.

I used a mandolin slicer to cut my fries into perfectly even widths and this helped so much to ensure that they would cook evenly. I have this exact adjustable mandolin slicer and vegetable julienner and it has been wonderful. I’m able to slice and cut the potatoes at the same time with only one pass over the blades.
The picture above is my raw potatoes that had been cut into French Fries using the mandolin slicer. They are so nice and pretty and even.

I chose to peel my potatoes before cutting them because that’s what my family prefers, but you can leave the skin on if you’d like.

Key to Success #2 – Dry Your Potatoes Well
In order for the French Fry potatoes to crisp up in the Air Fryer, they need to be very dry to start. Very dry. After I peel the potatoes, I wrap them in a clean kitchen towel and towel them dry.

Then after I slice them using the mandolin slicer, I use a couple paper towels to mop up any remaining moisture. This ensures that the potatoes are as dry as possible.

Key to Success #3 – Shake The Basket Often
While cooking your Air Fryer French Fries, be sure to shake the Air Fryer Basket often so that you can make sure all the French Fries are cooked evenly.

If you want to be gentler, you can use a spatula to flip your fries. These fries can handle a little shaking though. You can do whichever way is easier for you.

The cook times listed in this recipe are what worked for my Air Fryer, but yours may be slightly different. I have a Cozyna XL 5.8 QT Air Fryer. Here is the link for a newer version of the Cozyna XL Air Fryer that has some digital features.

These French Fries are great when served with Air Fryer Hamburgers or even Air Fryer Chicken Legs.

The low-price Model S is gone. If it must be a Tesla and you don’t need all-wheel drive or don’t have six figures, consider a Model 3.Though the Model 3 is all the rage, the larger 2019 Tesla Model S remains a stunning achievement and design trendsetter, albeit somewhat dated in the details.
The Tesla Model S wasn’t the first model from the California electric carmaker, but it’s the one that put Tesla on the trajectory as an innovator. It was unprecedented in many ways and has already earned a place in history books—the fastest volume-production plug-in car; the longest-range electric car; and the first production car built on a platform that provides over-the-air updates.
