Quick Tips for Cooking Potatoes in an Air Fryer

Before we get to the 12 recipes, here are a few things:

  • In my experience, you don’t need to soak your potatoes before air frying. Straight in the air fryer gets the job done just fine. Any added benefits from soaking are 98% unnoticeable.
  • Most of the recipes use a “twice air fried” method which will basically be air frying in a small amount of oil before tossing in more oil to finish. This creates extra crispy air fryer potatoes and minimizes the amount of oil runoff during air frying.
  • The nutrition facts differences between white potatoes, sweet potatoes, and gold potatoes are very minimal. Choose the type of potato you use based on texture and flavor over any myth that certain types of potatoes are healthier than another.
  • I love this potatoes 101 guide from Serious Eats if you’d like to learn more about different types of potatoes.

And as one last tip/note, all the air fried potatoes recipes in this guide were prepared using a 6.5-quart Ninja Foodi. A larger air fryer with more surface area will cook slightly faster, and a smaller air fryer will likely cook slower or require air frying in batches.

Now, to the recipes!
