Add frozen fries to air fryer basket. You really don’t need to add extra oil spray. The frozen fries are already pre-cooked in oil that will release when you air fry.

Air fry at 400 for about 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fries. Make sure to gently shake or toss the fries for even cooing. Amazing crispy french fries with less oil!

Air Fryer Frozen French Fries

We cooked the fries in a 4qt air fryer. 1 pound is about the max without overcrowding the air fryer, and the more you fill the basket the more frequently you’ll want to shake the basket to help them cook evenly. If you have  larger size, you can cook more so long as the basket isn’t filled more than 1/2 full. 
Adjust cooking time for thicker or thinner fries. Some brands of Air Fryers will cook slower or faster than others, adjust accordingly. After you make your first batch, you'll know what timing works best for your preferred texture.

  • Air fry potatoes at 400°F for about 15 minutes (about 10 minutes for thin cut fries). About halfway through cooking, shake the basket and gently turn the fries. Try not to break them. For crisper, evenly cooked fries, turn them multiples times while cooking.
  • If needed, cook for additional 1-2 minutes to crisp up.
  • For more fries timing (criss cut, waffle, thick cut fires), check out our sister site for all different types of fries:


  1. No Oil Necessary.
  2. Cook Fries Frozen – Do not thaw first.
  3. Shake several times for even cooking & Don’t overcrowd fryer basket.
  4. If cooking in multiple batches, the first batch will take longer to cook if Air Fryer is not already pre-heated.
  5. Recipes were cooked in 3-4 qt air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time. 
  6. Remember to set a timer to shake/flip/toss the food as directed in recipe.

What are the Best Air Fryers?

There’s so many on the market now. You just need to research and find the ones that fits your needs, capacity and style. We group the basket style air fryers into 2 main size groups: 3-4 qt range & the 5-6 qt. range.  Here’s our favorites:


Cosori 3.7 qt. Digital Air Fryer – “That’s a stylish Air Fryer” was said as we unboxed the Cosori. Beyond being stylish, it has cooked great. The basket is not as tall and wider than most in its size group, which is perfect. You’ll have a lot better results in an air fryer with single layered, spread out foods, then with ones piled high and thick.
The non-stick basket style (non-wire base) & smoothness of the basket tray is also great for clean up.

Ninja 4 qt. Digital Air Fryer – Has a great ceramic coated basket, one of the longest lasting we’ve used. Super powerful fan that will often cook recipes even faster than other air fryers. We initially returned our first one because we thought we wouldn’t like the basket style. After reconsidering, we bought another and are super glad we did. We love it’s basket and just a platform insert. One less bulky thing to wash. This is a great air fryer.

Good Larger Air Fryers

Tiluxury Air Fryer 5.8 qtTiluxury 5.8 qt. Digital Air Fryer – It’s a good larger air fryer capable of cooking for larger families, especially when you need to cook more food. It’s great for cooking bigger batches (ie 4 salmon fillets instead of 2 or 2 lbs of fries instead of 1).
We like that this Tiluxury 5.8 qt has the non-stick basket (non-wire base). Makes for less sticking for delicate meals (ie baked fish fillets).  And we like the digital interface (easier cleaning).
Gourmia 6 qt. Digital Air Fryer – This is quickly becoming one of our favorite larger basket style air fryers. Great basket size, good controls, cooks nice. Clean up is great. It has become one of our kitchen favorites. We’ll often find it as Costco at a great price too!
