- 1/2 Teaspoon of Paprika
- Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit using an electric model, and set the timer for 15 minutes.

- One large potato
- One teaspoon of Olive oil
- One teaspoon of Salt
- One teaspoon of Chilli powder
- Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees.

- Give oil on each piece lightly and sprinkle with salt or seasoning of your choice (I used chili powder).

- One lb. (454 g) potato, cleaned
- 1 cup (240 ml) Oil spray to coat the potatoes
- Salt & pepper
- Cube the potatoes to a thickness of about half an inch. They’ll cook more uniformly if they’re all about the same thickness.
- Arrange the seasoned coating in a low dish with a lip. Spray the potato wedges with oil and then press them gently but firmly into the seasoned layer.
- Spread the potatoes out in a single layer in the air fryer’s basket or tray (cook in batches if needed). Then, apply another thin layer of oil by spraying.
- For 10 minutes, air fry the potatoes at 380 degrees Fahrenheit (195 degrees Celsius). The potatoes need a gentle rotation. If there are any dry areas, treat them with oil spray.
- Keep Air Frying at 380 degrees Fahrenheit (195 degrees Celsius) for 8-12 minutes or until crispy. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Relish while hot and garnish with your selections (ketchup, mustard, ranch, bbq sauce, etc.)
