Ah, the humble potato. A delicious and versatile root vegetable that’s a staple in many kitchens. It can be cooked in a variety of ways, from baking to frying to roasting. And, of course, air frying!

Air fryers are a great way to get crispy potatoes without all the oil. Cooking with hot air is great for getting that delicious potato crunch that everyone loves!

However, there are two other tricks to getting air-fried potatoes as crispy as possible.

  1. After cutting potatoes, soak them for at least 5 minutes (ideally 20) to remove any potato starch residue on the surface (which can prevent the potatoes from really crisping up), and
  2. After soaking, pat them dry with paper towels. You want to get them as dry as possible before you add any oil or place them in the air fryer, so they will start crisping up as soon as they start cooking.

Here are some of our favorite air fryer potato recipes. There’s something for everyone, from crispy roasted potatoes to air-fried french fries. So fire up your air fryer, and let’s get cooking!
