Air Fryer Home Made French Fries

How many of you have ever wondered if the Air Fryer really works or not? I know we did. I got so tired of hearing my husband comment on the Air Fryers that I finally said “If you don’t order one I will”. He ended up asking for one for his birthday. Since it was his birthday gift, it just wouldn’t be right for me to use his gift….right? So this is another one of those “his” appliances so it is only right that I let “him” do all the cooking in it. I guess I am just an old fashion type of cook. With that said, the food always looks so good on the infomercials. I never liked frying anything in grease. I even bake my French Fries in the oven and have for years. Now don’t get me wrong, I am by no means a healthy cook, I cook for taste! Although I love kitchen gadgets, the Air Fryer just wasn’t sparking my interest. My husband has only made French Fries and Chips in our Air Fryer so far. I am in food groups on Facebook and they all swear by the Air Fryer. Their food looks amazing too. I’m sure I will break down and try making something in the Air Fryer myself soon. Below is what our Air Fryer looks like.


It cost us around $150.00 if my memory serves me right. It uses 1 tsp of vegetable oil per potato when making French Fries.


It is very simple to use. Wash your potato and slice into the size of French Fries you would like. This was two medium potatoes that he cut thin. Add 1 tsp vegetable oil per potato.


Put your French Fries into the basket of the Air Fryer, place basket into the Air Fryer unit, turn on your Air Fryer, set the timer and you are done! Let me tell you……delicious! I also like that you can keep them warm by leaving them inside the fryer while you finish the rest of your meal.


So, for me, I give this appliance a thumbs up.

Wash and cut your potatoes. You can peel the skin off or leave it on like we do. Bake at 370 degrees, preheating not necessary, for 20 minutes for thin cut fries. Season with salt or your favorite seasonings and serve.
