Fresh French fries are a pretty tasty meal. They are a great compliment to burgers, fried chicken and good enough to eat by themselves. If you love French fries, you will already know that there is nothing worse than eating cold fries. They taste awful and many times will have you wondering why you even think about putting it in your mouth. So is there a method that can be used to reheat cold French fries? Yes there is! Check out the reheating options below.

On the Stovetop

Get a non-stick frying pan and make sure it is really hot. Toss the French fries in there and move them around so that they are all heated properly. There should be enough oil in the fries to make them sizzle. If there isn’t much oil, you can add a little bit of olive oil or whatever you use and sauté them.  Move them around until everything is heated and then WHA-LAAAAA you got perfect reheated French fries that also tastes just like you bought them from the store.


Another good option is reheating the fries in the oven. This is also pretty quick and will have you eating steaming hot French fries in no time.

The key is to pre-heat the oven until it is extremely hot. Turn the temperature in the oven to about 450-475 degrees F. Once you have done that, place the fries on a baking sheet  and place it in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Once it is finished, you will have fries that are not only heated all the way through, but also fries that taste as if they just came out of the fryer.


If you want soggy, disgusting looking and tasting French fries, then definitely stay away from the microwave. This device will do nothing but ruin it……You have been warned!

  1. Thanks for the tip. Now here’s one for you…it’s spelled Voilà (French for look here/there, kinda like the Spanish “¡Mira!”.) In the South we say “lookee here y’all!”
