Frequently asked questions
The oil is very dark after frying. How can I solve that?
There are several ways to address this problem:
- Salt the products after frying in a separate tray, not above the fryer.
- Filter your frying oil daily and replace the oil every three to five days.
- Clean the fryer thoroughly at least once a week.
- Check the thermostat, your oil temperature might be too high.
The fries have a lot of ice crystals among them. What can I do?
Ice crystals are formed when the fries have been defrosted and then re-frozen. Make sure the fries are always kept frozen in your store and that they aren't (partly) defrosted during transport or storing.
Once fried the Lamb Weston Fries are greasy and not crunchy. How is that possible?
This can be due to a number of things: You haven't fried them long enough, the frying basket is too full, the frying basket is hanging above the fryer, your oil is old or dirty, the oil isn't hot enough or the fryer has a poor heat recovery system. If you adapt one or more of these factors, we guarantee you'll fry your Lamb Weston fries crunchy and tasty.

One kilo of Lamb Weston fries gives more portions than other brands of fries. How is that possible?
That's possible because we use only the best quality potatoes. Our fries are longer and have a higher percentage of dry matter, and so our fries, such as our Private Reserve for example, have a proven higher portion yield per kilo.
