When I make again I may change the time or remove the basket part way through to check the fries to be the way I prefer. Read More

Recipes worked well. I made them plain this time for the kids. Next time I'll try the spices. I cooked all the potatoes at once and shook every 5 or 6 minutes until they were done to my liking. Read More

Pretty straight-forward. I cooked it closer to 25 minutes and all were done well enough (fries started out maybe 1/2" x 1/4"). Read More

Cooked my fries at 400 as instructed for 15 minutes. Threw some cheese, chives and bacon bits on it and put it in for another 30 seconds. They turned out perfect! Instead of cutting up fries, I purchased some frozen ones. I had no idea how to cook them in a air fryer but this recipe worked perfectly. Thanks! Read More

I used three medium Russet potatoes sliced into thin, 5 mm shoestrings with a mandoline. As the recipe suggested, I soaked the fries and dried them off before tossing them with 1 tbsp of canola oil, also sprinkling them with seasoning salt. I set the air fryer at 375 and used two tiers in my Instant Pot, also crisscrossing two layers of fries in each tier. After cooking for 16 min this first batch was perfect. I didn't need the second tier for the remaining fries so I removed it. Unfortunately with the same settings, this time the fries were overdone. I will reduce the time if I don't use two tiers in the future. Overall, very satisfied with my first attempt. Read More
