  • Do not keep heating them till they become brown, as this means they are getting burnt slowly.
  • Do not add salt while you are reheating the fries, as they shall soften these fried pieces.


Once you successfully reheat French fries serve them immediately, by placing them on paper napkins on a plate and serve immediately.
