Best air fryer chips

Making crispy and delicious chips in the air fryer is easy and healthier than traditional deep frying. Here’s a simple recipe for the best air fryer chips:


  • Potatoes (russet or your preferred variety)
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: your favorite seasonings (paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.)


  1. Prepare Potatoes:
    • Wash and peel the potatoes if desired. You can leave the skin on for a rustic texture. Slice the potatoes into thin, uniform pieces. You can use a mandoline slicer for even thickness.
  2. Soak in Water (Optional):
    • If time allows, soak the potato slices in cold water for about 30 minutes. This helps remove excess starch, resulting in crispier chips. Pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel.
  3. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  4. Season Potatoes:
    • In a bowl, toss the potato slices with olive oil, salt, pepper, and any desired seasonings. Make sure the slices are evenly coated.
  5. Arrange in Air Fryer Basket:
    • Arrange the seasoned potato slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Do not overcrowd to ensure even cooking.
  6. Air Fry:
    • Cook in the preheated air fryer for about 15-20 minutes, flipping the chips halfway through the cooking time. Keep an eye on them, as cooking times may vary based on your air fryer model and the thickness of the chips.
  7. Check for Crispiness:
    • Check the chips for crispiness. If needed, you can continue cooking in 2-3 minute increments until they reach your desired level of crispiness.
  8. Serve Hot:
    • Once the chips are golden brown and crispy, remove them from the air fryer. Let them cool for a minute and serve hot.
  9. Enjoy:
    • Enjoy your homemade, crispy air fryer chips with your favorite dip or on their own!

Experiment with different seasonings to customize the flavor of your chips. This method allows you to enjoy a tasty and healthier version of your favorite snack.
