This recipe was tested using a 6-quart air fryer. For a smaller air fryer, cook in 2 batches – once both batches are fully cooked return them all at once to the air fryer for 2 minutes to warm before serving.
Pre-blanching the fresh-cut potato sticks makes the finished fries fluffier and adds crunch – check out our Fantastic when air-fried recipe.
