How To Make Air Fryer Potato Chips

To begin, preheat your air fryer to 360°F (182°C). Grab two large potatoes and either a mandoline or vegetable peeler to create thin slices. Transfer the potato slices to a spacious bowl and add enough ice water to cover them. Let the potatoes soak for 15 minutes, allowing the water to draw out the natural starch and help achieve that desirable crunch. After the initial soak, drain the potatoes and repeat the process with fresh ice water for another 15 minutes.

Once the soaking is complete, drain the potatoes and place them on towels, gently patting them dry. Now, it’s time to add flavor and ensure a crispy outcome. Give the potato slices a light spritz of olive oil-flavored cooking spray, ensuring an even coating. Sprinkle them with half a teaspoon of sea salt for that classic potato chip taste.

Now, it’s time to cook the chips. Place the potato slices in a single layer on the greased tray inside the air fryer basket. It’s important to cook them in batches to maintain the crispness and ensure even cooking. Set the air fryer to cook at 360°F (182°C) for 15 to 17 minutes, stirring and turning the slices every 5 to 7 minutes. Keep an eye on the chips to prevent them from overcooking or burning.

Once the air-fryer potato chips turn a beautiful golden brown and become crisp, they are ready to be enjoyed. For an added touch, you can sprinkle minced fresh parsley on top to enhance the flavor and presentation. Serve these homemade potato chips as a satisfying snack or as a delightful accompaniment to your favorite dips.
