  • 1 pound russet or Idaho potatoes, cut in thin 2-inch strips
  • 1/2–3 tablespoons canola oil


  1. Soak cut potatoes in cold water for 30 minutes to remove excess starch. Drain well, then pat with a paper towel until very dry.
  2. Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl; toss to combine. Use at least 1/2 tablespoon oil. For crispier results, use up to 3 tablespoons oil.
  3. Insert crisper plate in basket and basket in unit. Preheat unit by selecting AIR FRY, setting the temperature to 390°F, and setting the time to 3 minutes. Select START/PAUSE to begin.
  4. After 3 minutes, place fries on the crisper plate; reinsert basket. Select AIR FRY, set temperature to 390°F, and set time to 25 minutes. Select START/PAUSE to begin.
  5. After 10 minutes, select START/PAUSE to pause cooking. Remove basket from unit and shake fries or toss them with silicone-tipped tongs. Reinsert basket and select START/PAUSE to resume cooking.
  6. Check fries after 20 minutes. For crispier fries, continue cooking for up to 25 minutes.
  7. When cooking is complete, serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.

A tip from the Ninja® Kitchen Team

Shaking the fries is key for getting them crisp and golden brown, so shake or toss with silicone-tipped tongs frequently.
