Perfectly crispy fries in under 30 minutes is quickly becoming a crowd-pleaser in our household. Ketchup and harissa mixed together is the dipping sauce of choice in my family.

Love my Mealthy pot, added the CrispLid. Tried the fries and they turned out great. Don’t understand people not happy with the amount of time, maybe incorrect temp.

My husband is the French fry expert and he gave this a 2 thumbs up! I had to double the cooking time and plan to decrease the recommended amount of oil. Otherwise, easy peasy!

I am a french fry junkie, seriously. I really like this recipe because I can make fresh fries at home. These are way better than frozen fries or fast food fries. Solid recipe all the way around, and the CrispLid does a great job of cooking them.

For some reason mine came out rather chewy

Excellent recipe and so easy! So much better than frozen fries. I cooked them a couple extra minutes to get them really crisp.

The first recipe tried with our new CrispLid. Very impressed. My husband, who wasn’t sure about buying the lid for our Instant Pot (he did not know what an Airfryer was), loved them and proceeded to make a second batch after devouring the first. Will probably be able to convince him that we will need the CrispLid for our Instant Pot in our other home lol.

1/4 inch fries are way too thin for this manner pf cooking. Next time I'll cut some "normal size" ones and rate them. I'll revise my rating if they're as good as others say. 1/4" don't make the grade.

They take way longer than the recipe says and still turn out soggy if you do a whole potato at once. I recommend doing it in two batches to prevent overcrowding in the basket. Also, if you soak the potatoes in water for 10 minutes after you cut them, it will remove excess starch. Pat them dry after, then add your oil and seasoning. They'll be much crispier!

Was so excited to try my new lid to make fries, but it took waaaaay too long. Basket only holds 1 potato at a time, and took more than the suggested 18 mins EACH potato. Oven would have had dinner on the table way sooner. Family says thumbs down for fries.

Took more then 18 minutes bit the taste is good! Not realy crispy, mayber too much oil.

Disappointing first attempt. I used one russet potato, which when sliced into strips, mostly covered the basket in one layer. After cycling it 5 times, (45 minutes) the fries were done, but not crisp. The reason it got this lid was in hopes of cooking things quickly. This time that didn't prove true. I could have achieved the same or better results using my oven.

First batch as per recipe, were more like roasted potatoes. 2nd batch, I turned up the heat to 400 and cooked for 10 minutes on each side. They were crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside. I also soaked them in water first to remove starch.

Perfect fries every time! 400 degrees for a total of 20 minutes (10 minutes, give a quick stir, then 10 minutes more). Season them with salt and garlic seasoning — yum! I LOVE my CrispLid! (And my nephew loves me because I gave him my air fryer. He doesn’t know it just didn’t compare to the ease of cooking and cleanup, as well as the superb crisping of the CrispLid. Shhhhh...)

Frozen shoestring french fries - put in air fryer basket, bake 400 degrees for 10 minutes, flip fries over and cook 3 minutes more. Love the fries.
