Try these quick and easy french fries recipe you can do with your Instant Pot: it takes only 25 minutes to taste these crispy but tender fries with your family and friends on every occasion!

These pressure cooker french fries are perfect for parties, weeknight dinners, appetizers and every time you feel like having a flavorful snack. They are also much healthier than the fried ones.

You can change the suggesting spices and use whatever spices and seasoning you like the most!

Please note – In this recipe, I’m using CrispLid. It’s an accessory that fits on top of your pressure cooker and turn it into an air-fryer. Click here for my Instant Pot CrispLid review.

I don’t have CrispLid and I still want to make healthy french fries. What can I do?
Well, you have 4 options:

1. Use this recipe – Instant Pot French Fries Without CrispLid
2. Make this crispy french fries recipe using the oven:
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and put it all in the oven in a single layer. Set to 375°F and bake for 25 minutes.
3. Get a CrispLid
4. Get the new Instant Pot Duo Crisp (I don’t have it yet to be honest..)
