While crinkle cut fries can be something of a love em or hate em affair – we’re firmly in the former camp. And we LOVE these crinkle cut fries from Ore-Ida. They cook up perfectly in the air fryer offering a crisp exterior and pillowy fluffy interior. Full review.

This product from Kroger’s Simple Truth line is a strong one. The fries finish up to a deep golden brown, and in line with the no weird ingredient narrative of the brand – they’re the cleanest tasting fry on this list. Full review.

Alexia House Cut Fries with Sea Salt – maybe buy

This is a solid skinny style fry that’s more about the exterior surface crisp then masses of internal fluffy potato. They have a very clean taste like all of the Alexia range and are certainly worth a look at, if you’re after a thin style French fry.

Slightly pricier and slightly smaller in package size than the Ore-Ida brand. These crinkle cut fries certainly crisp up nicely, but do possess a certain yellow-technicolor quality that might be off-putting. Full review.

O.k. even a less than stellar French fry is one we will probably eat. That said, these aren’t as good as the products mentioned above. Unless you have no other choice, we’d recommend skipping these. Full review.

Fans of the burger chain mind want to check these out. For me, these are a pass. Not particularly poor in any way, but not are they remarkable either. A rather average product that’s bested by items higher up this page. Full review.
