  • 16 oz French Fries frozen
  • Cooking spray


  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil spray to prevent sticking.
  • Place basket in the Instant Pot inner pot, add fries, then place the air fryer lid in place. Set timer for 15-18 minutes.
  • Air fryer will beep when it is time to turn the food (after 11 minutes for an 18-minute cycle). Remove the lid, shake the basket a few times, then replace the lid and resume the cycle.
  • Air fryer will beep and go into cool down mode when the cycle is complete.



Cooking times may vary by brand and cut of frozen fries. The first time trying this, you might want to start with a 15 minute cycle and add from there. If fries seem under done at the end of the cycle, simply repeat for another 2 to 3 minute cycle.
