air fryer potato chips

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes
Total Time: 25-30 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 medium-sized russet potatoes, washed and peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional seasonings: paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, or your favorite spice blend


  1. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Slice Potatoes:
    • Using a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife, thinly slice the potatoes to about 1/16 to 1/8 inch thickness. Ensure that the slices are uniform for even cooking.
  3. Soak in Water (Optional):
    • For extra crispiness, you can soak the potato slices in cold water for 30 minutes. Pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel before proceeding.
  4. Season Potatoes:
    • In a large bowl, toss the potato slices with olive oil, ensuring each slice is well coated. Add salt to taste and any optional seasonings you prefer, such as paprika, garlic powder, or onion powder.
  5. Arrange in Air Fryer Basket:
    • Place the seasoned potato slices in the air fryer basket in a single layer, ensuring they do not overlap. You may need to cook in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  6. Air Fry:
    • Air fry at 375°F (190°C) for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket or flipping the chips halfway through the cooking time for even crispiness.
  7. Check for Doneness:
    • Keep an eye on the chips, as cooking times may vary based on the thickness of the slices. They are done when they are golden brown and crispy.
  8. Cool and Serve:
    • Once done, remove the air-fried potato chips from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.
  9. Enjoy:
    • Serve these homemade air fryer potato chips as a delicious snack or a crunchy side dish. Enjoy them on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce!

Note: Experiment with different potato varieties and seasonings to create a variety of flavors. Adjust the cooking time based on your air fryer model and the thickness of the potato slices.
