Making perfectly crunchy french fries usually requires frying them in A LOT of oil. Not really healthy at all! We love French Fries but we don’t have them often and when we do I always feel guilty.

I use our Philips Airfryer (CAN). A new countertop appliance that drastically reduces the amount of fat or oil used by approximately 80% when making meals.

Airfryer Fries

Yield: 4


  • 1.2 kg floury potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt, to taste


*Peel the potatoes and cut them into long, 8mm thick chips. (You can use a chip cutter for this.)

*Soak the fries in water for at least 30 minutes. Drain them thoroughly, then pat them dry with paper towels.

*Preheat the Airfryer to 160 degrees C.

*Put the friers in a large bowl, drizzle with the oil and toss to coat. Transfer them to the Airfryer basket. Slide the basket into the Airfryer and set the timer for 16 minutes.

*When the timer rings, slide out the basket and shake the fries. Adjust the temperature to 180 degrees C and set the timer for another 12 minutes.

*After 6 minutes, slide out the basket and shake the fries again.

*Fry until the timer rings and the fries are golden brown. Sprinkle with salt and serve on a platter.
