Easy air fryer french Fries

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 4

Difficulty Level: Easy


  • 4 large potatoes, washed and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce (for serving)


  1. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Cut Potatoes:
    • Cut the peeled potatoes into evenly sized matchstick or wedge shapes. The uniform size ensures even cooking.
  3. Soak Potatoes (Optional):
    • For crispier fries, you can soak the cut potatoes in cold water for about 15-30 minutes to remove excess starch. Pat them dry thoroughly before proceeding.
  4. Season Potatoes:
    • In a large bowl, toss the cut potatoes with olive oil until well-coated. Add garlic powder and paprika for extra flavor if desired. Sprinkle salt to taste.
  5. Air Fry:
    • Place the seasoned potatoes in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they are not crowded. You may need to cook in batches.
  6. Air Fry First Round:
    • Air fry at 400°F (200°C) for 10 minutes. Shake the basket or toss the fries halfway through the cooking time for even crispiness.
  7. Air Fry Second Round:
    • After the initial 10 minutes, increase the temperature to 425°F (220°C) and air fry for an additional 8-10 minutes or until the fries are golden brown and crispy.
  8. Check for Doneness:
    • Check a fry to ensure it’s cooked to your desired crispiness.
  9. Serve:
    • Remove the fries from the air fryer and serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup.
  10. Enjoy!
    • Enjoy these Easy Air Fryer French Fries as a delicious and healthier alternative to traditional deep-fried fries.


  • Experiment with different seasonings such as cajun, seasoned salt, or your favorite spice blend.
  • Adjust cooking times based on your air fryer model and the thickness of your fries.
  • Ensure the fries are spread out in a single layer for the best results.
