The Best Air Fryer for the Job
When it comes to frozen foods, air fryers are simply the best. Whether you have a Ninja Foodi, Power XL, Gourmia, or Emeril Lagasse, any air fryer will deliver crispy and delicious frozen curly fries without the need for extra oil. In this recipe, we tested the fries in both the Cosori air fryer 5.8qt and the Instant Pot Vortex Pro air fryer oven, so we’ll share instructions for both.
Quick and Easy Cooking Times
So, how long should you air fry frozen Arby’s curly fries? In our tests, it took 10 minutes in the non-preheated Cosori air fryer and just 7 minutes in the preheated Instant Pot Vortex Pro oven air fryer. These times may vary slightly depending on your air fryer model, so make sure to check your fries a couple of minutes before the stated time and adjust accordingly.
Cooking Instructions for the Instant Pot Vortex Pro Oven
If you’re using the Instant Pot Vortex Pro oven, here’s how to make your frozen curly fries. Simply select the air fry button, set the temperature to 400°F / 200°C, and the timer for 8 minutes. The oven usually takes around 3 to 4 minutes to preheat, so the total cooking time will be 11 to 12 minutes. While it’s preheating, arrange the fries on the air fryer rack or tray. Once the air has reached the desired temperature, slide the tray into the middle rack and air fry for 7 to 8 minutes.
Enjoy Fresh Curly Fries
Air fryer curly fries are best enjoyed fresh. Since they are already precooked and frozen, you’re essentially just reheating them. To avoid having leftovers, it’s best to air fry the quantity you need at a time. This way, you can savor the full experience of crispy, flavorful curly fries every time.
Tips and Tricks for Perfect Results
Air fryer temperatures may vary depending on the size, make, and model. When trying a recipe for the first time, it’s always a good idea to start with less time, check for doneness, and then add more time if needed. This way, you’ll find the perfect cooking time for your particular air fryer.
