Air fryer potato chips

Making homemade potato chips in an air fryer is a quick and healthier alternative to store-bought chips. Here’s a simple recipe for air fryer potato chips:


  • 2 large potatoes (russet or your choice)
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: paprika, garlic powder, or your favorite seasoning for extra flavor


  1. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare Potatoes:
    • Wash and peel the potatoes. Use a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife to thinly slice the potatoes. The thickness is up to your preference, but aim for consistency to ensure even cooking.
  3. Soak in Water (Optional):
    • For crisper chips, you can soak the sliced potatoes in cold water for about 30 minutes. Pat them dry thoroughly with a paper towel before proceeding.
  4. Season Potatoes:
    • In a large bowl, toss the sliced potatoes with olive oil until they are evenly coated. Season with salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings you prefer.
  5. Arrange in Air Fryer:
    • Arrange the seasoned potato slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket. You may need to cook them in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  6. Air Fry:
    • Air fry the potato slices for 10-15 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time. Keep a close eye on them, as cooking times may vary between air fryers. The chips should be golden brown and crispy.
  7. Cool and Serve:
    • Once the potato chips are done, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil. Allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving.
  8. Repeat for Remaining Batches:
    • If you have more potato slices, repeat the process until all the chips are cooked.
  9. Enjoy:
    • Enjoy your homemade air fryer potato chips as a snack or serve them alongside your favorite dip!

Feel free to get creative with the seasonings and experiment with different flavors. Making potato chips in the air fryer allows you to enjoy a crispy snack with less oil compared to traditional frying methods.
