Want crispy potatoes but you don’t want to deal with lots of oil and a messy stovetop? Making these Crispy Air Fryer Potatoes in the air fryer leaves little mess but that doesn’t mean they aren’t big on flavor.
Is there anything that the air fryer can’t do? I use it to make everything from sandwiches to snacks, so this appliance gets a workout here in my kitchen. So for this Mitten Movie
What beer pairs well with fried potatoes?
The beer: Twilight Summer Ale from Deschutes Brewery.
These potatoes pair perfectly with the citrus notes in this summer ale. This is such an easy-drinking beer so it’s perfect for long summer afternoons.
What should I read while eating air fryer potatoes and drinking a summer ale?
I have been reading like crazy this summer. On Twitter, Stephen King recommended this book and said he could not put it down. Guess what? Neither could I! I read Necessary People by Anna Pitoniak in ONE DAY.

Look how crispy these are! So why wouldn’t I call these Crispy Air Fryer Potato Chips? They sure look like chips. I didn’t call them ‘potato chips’ because I want to keep this recipe open for interpretation.
Can you snack on them like chips? Yes. But they can be so much more. Make these potatoes and add them to make a Cajun Steak & Potato Salad. Skip the tortilla chips for Smoke Sausage Nachos and make a ‘tachos’ meal with them. Use the sauce on these Pesto Fries for a salty and cheesy side dish.
Now that we have down a few ideas of how to use these fried potaotes, let’s make them!
How to make Crispy Air Fryer Potatoes:
First, clean the potatoes. Slice them thinly using a knife or vegetable slicer.
The next step is very important. In a bowl add cool water and place the sliced potatoes into it. Let them sit in the water for 30 minutes.
Why do you want to soak potato slices in
water before frying them?
This gets the potato starch from the potatoes and keeps them from getting soggy and sticking together. You want maximum crispiness so make sure to do this step.
After the potatoes have been soaked drain the water then using a paper towel dry off the potatoes.
To the uncooked potatoes add the olive oil and seasonings. Stir to coat the potaotes evenly.
Place the potatoes into the basket of the air fryer. Set the air fryer to 380 degrees and set for 25 minutes. Push ‘start.
Check the potatoes after 10 minutes and using a small spatula, flip the potatoes around. Slide the basket back in then perform the same action every 5 minutes for another 15 minutes.
Remove from the air fryer and serve as desired. And here you are……
