Air Fryer Frozen Curly Fries

  • Author: chefjar

These air fryer frozen curly fries are absolutely delicious! They’re not only healthier than deep fried fries, but they are more convenient, too!


  • 1 pound (500 grams) frozen curly fries
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat your air fryer.
  • Place the frozen curly fries in the air fryer basket  in a single layer. Don't overcrowd the basket. No cooking oil spray is required.
  • Air fry at 400°F|200°C for 7-10 minutes or until crispy. Shake the basket halfway through cooking.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Enjoy!


  • Avoid overcrowding the air fryer basket. You might be hungry, and tempted to add extra fries, but an overcrowded basket won’t cook evenly. Some of your fries won’t get the same amount of heat as others, and you’ll end up with unevenly cooked fries. Air fryers work by circulating hot air around the food. If you prevent the air from passing over any of the food, it won’t cook properly.
  • Do not defrost your fries before cooking. You can throw them in the air fryer while still frozen - they will thaw and cook very quickly in the air fryer. If you defrost them before cooking, they will turn mushy.
  • We recommend seasoning after cooking. However, depending on how salty you like it, you don’t have to do this. Seasoning is entirely up to you.
