Air Fryer Fries


  • Peel and slice your potatoes into chips. Load the potatoes into a bowl, cover with cold water and fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Drain the potatoes, add seasoning and extra virgin olive oil and mix with your hands until nicely coated.
  • Load the fries into the air fryer basket and cook for 15 minutes at 160c/320f.
  • When it beeps shake the chips and make sure a fork goes through a chip and they are not underdone.
  • Cook for a further 5 minutes at 200c/400f or until they are perfectly crispy.
  • Serve.


If your air fryer is rather powerful, only cook for 2 minutes instead of 5 and reduce the temperature to 180c/360f.
You can use any of your favourite air fryer oils, or refer to our air fryer oil usage guide.
Reduce the time to 12 minutes and a further 3 minutes if doing a small amount of potatoes.
