Hand-Cut Fries


1 pound russet or Idaho potatoes, cut in thin 2-inch strips

1/2  – 3 tablespoons canola oil


1   Soak cut potatoes in cold water for 30 minutes to remove excess starch. Drain well, then pat with a paper towel until very dry.

2   Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl; toss to combine. Use at least 1/2 tablespoon oil. For crispier results, use up to 3 tablespoons oil.

3   Insert crisper plate in basket and basket in unit. Preheat unit by selecting AIR FRY, setting the temperature to 390°F, and setting the time to 3 minutes. Select START/PAUSE to begin.

4   After 3 minutes, place fries on the crisper plate; reinsert basket. Select AIR FRY, set temperature to 390°F, and set time to 25 minutes. Select START/PAUSE to begin.

5   After 10 minutes, simply remove the basket from the unit and shake fries or toss them with silicone-tipped tongs. Reinsert the basket to resume cooking.

6   Check fries after 20 minutes. For crispier fries, continue cooking for up to 25 minutes.

7   When cooking is complete, serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.


TIP: Shaking the fries is key for getting them crisp and golden brown, so shake or toss with silicone-tipped tongs frequently.
