Mastering air fryer potato chips takes practice—and you'll want to check on them about halfway through cooking, then more frequently towards the end of their cooking cycle. Use tongs to carefully separate any chips that have stuck to each other to ensure they cook evenly, and remove any chips that are fully crisped.


  • 1 medium Potatoes, russet, flesh and skin, raw

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • Canola oil

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary


  1. In a large bowl of cold water, soak potato slices for 20 minutes. Drain potatoes; pat dry with paper towels.

  2. Wipe bowl dry; then add oil, salt and pepper. Add potatoes; toss gently to coat.

  3. Lightly coat air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place half of the potato slices in the basket and cook in two batches at 375°F until cooked through and crispy, about 25 to 30 minutes.

  4. Using a pair of tongs, carefully remove chips from air fryer to plate. Sprinkle over rosemary; serve immediately or store in an airtight plastic container.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
