My Philips Airfryer homemade fries are not as expected

Updated on 2022-03-09
If your Philips Airfryer homemade fries are not as expected, there might be a simple solution. Read the steps below to learn how to solve this issue yourself.


Things to consider when making home-made fries

  • Choose a type of potato that is suitable for making fries
  • It is best to bake fries in portions of up to 500 grams for an even result
  • It is best to fill the basket of your Philips Airfryer to only half of the total capacity for an even result
  • Larger fries may be less crispy than smaller fries
  • Shake the basket of your appliance 2–3 times during the air-frying process

Preparing homemade fries with your Philips Airfryer

Your Philips Airfryer uses Rapid Air technology, which makes the frying process different from deep-fat frying. Follow the steps below to prepare homemade fries with your Philips Airfryer:

1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into sticks.

2. Soak the potato sticks in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes, then take them out and dry them with kitchen paper.

3. Pour half a tablespoon of olive oil into a bowl, put the sticks in the bowl and mix until the sticks are coated with oil.

4. Remove the sticks from the bowl with your fingers or a kitchen utensil so that excess oil stays behind in the bowl. Put the sticks in the basket of your Philips Airfryer.

5. Fry 300-800 g of the potato sticks at 180°C for 18-25 minutes and shake the basket 2-3 times during the hot air frying process.
