I am a huge fan of air frying, so much so I wrote the Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook AND partnered with Vremi to come out with the Skinnytaste by Vremi Air Fryer.

Since having the Skinnytaste by Vremi Air Fryer (you can pre-order now), I’ve been keeping it on my counter and making EVERYTHING in it! Of course, this is the ONLY way we make French fries now! The key is to turn them half way and don’t overcrowd the basket. A few more dishes you’ll love in the air fryer: Air Fryer Empanadas, Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan and Air Fryer Crispy Breaded Pork Chops.

How To Make Air Fryer French Fries

What is an air fryer?

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks by circulating hot air around food at high speed, which produces crispy food in a fraction of the time it would take in a conventional oven.

Is an Air Fryer better than the oven?

  • In my opinion there are pros and cons to having an air fryer. More pros than cons!
  • The pros: Air fryers are compact enough to fit on your kitchen counter and their small size means the heat inside is more concentrated.
  • They cook food faster than cooking in an oven and the food comes out crisp.
  • It doesn’t heat your whole kitchen!
  • It only takes 3 minutes to preheat.
  • The cons: the basket is smaller than a large oven, so if you’re cooking for a large, you have to cook in batches.

Is using an air fryer healthy?

  • Yes, it’s healthier that deep frying because you use less oil.
  • An air fryer is an excellent way to reduce a massive amount of fat and calories without sacrificing taste.
  • Since air fryers use air to cook food, it doesn’t require the extra calories that submerging food in oil would add.
