"I went to put the potato in the air fryer and it doesn't come with instructions"Now, they probably just reheated frozen fries, but for the audience at home, here's all the effort required to make french fries in an air fryer:
1) Cut potato(es) up.
2) Toss with ~1 tbsp of oil and season with whatever seasoning you like.
3) Cook at 400 F for about 8-10 minutes.
4) Toss around in fryer basket.
5) Cook again for about 8-10 minutes (depending on fry size and desired crispness.
For a Gordon Ramsey-esque improvement, parboil the cut potatoes for a few minutes before air frying. This makes the fries tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.
Imagine fucking this up.
