Buy Little Potatoes.
When you buy your potatoes, look for a similar variety in size and color. You want to make sure you have little potatoes that are similar in shape so that they will cook evenly — this means no wobbly, misshapen spuds that might burn on the bottom while remaining raw inside!
Now that you've picked your potatoes, it's time to get cooking!
Wash Little Potatoes.
Wash potatoes in cold water
DO NOT use soap.
DO NOT scrub the potatoes. Scrubbing will cause them to fall apart, which you don't want.
Please DO NOT soak the potatoes, as this can cause them to rot and mold.
DO NOT peel the potato skins, as peeling causes more work for yourself (and leaves behind some pretty gross things if you don't peel properly).
Instead, wash off any dirt that may still be on your spuds when you're done scrubbing them clean with a vegetable brush or other preferred cleaning tool of choice!
Cut Little Potatoes.
To make air fryer potato recipes, you'll need potatoes that are a bit smaller than the typical russet. Look for little potatoes in your grocery store and choose any variety that looks tasty.
If you're cutting up your little potatoes into diced potatoes:
First, cut off both ends of the potato with a sharp knife (or use your air fryer's vegetable slicer).
Cut the potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half in half again lengthwise. Next, cut each quarter piece of potato into two equal-sized pieces lengthwise to have four wedges from each large potato.
If you end up with leftover pieces after missing all of your wedges, save them for other uses or discard them altogether.
If you're cutting up your little potatoes into cubes:
Place one large or several small potatoes in your air fryer basket(s) with some room between them, so they don't touch while they cook.
Season Little Potatoes.
Season your little potatoes with Salt, pepper, and other spices. Most of the time, I just season them with Salt and pepper. But sometimes, I like to mix in some herbs or spices for flavor. This also helps enhance their flavor.
Herbs are great because they add an earthy taste that complements the small potato well. Some good herbs include rosemary, thyme, sage, and parsley if you have them handy (but don't worry if you don't).
You can also add other fats like butter or olive oil which will make your potatoes taste better than usual! And if you want a nice acidic bite, then try lemon juice or vinegar on top of it all instead!
Cook Little Potatoes in Air Fryer.
To cook little potatoes in your air fryer, preheat it to 400 degrees.
Place the potatoes in the basket of your air fryer and set it on top of a sheet pan for easy cleanup.
Cook for 10-15 minutes, occasionally checking for doneness by piercing with a fork or knife. When they're done, remove them from the basket and serve immediately.
Serve Little Potatoes
You can serve Little Potatoes as a side dish or as a main course.
They're great when served with any sauce or gravy you like.

Recipe 3( Potato Chips)
Prep: 20 min. + soaking Cook: 15 min./batch
- Two large potatoes
- Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- Minced fresh parsley, optional
Turn the air fryer up to 360°. Cut the potatoes into skinny slices with a peeler. Please move to a big bowl and cover it with enough ice water. Soak for 15 minutes, then pour out. Just add more ice water and let it soak for 15 more minutes.
Drain the potatoes and pat them dry with a towel. Salt the potatoes after spraying them with cooking spray. Put the potato slices on a greased tray in the air-fryer basket one layer at a time. 15–17 minutes, you are stirring and turning every 5–7 minutes until crisp and golden brown. If you want, you can sprinkle parsley on top.
How Do I Reheat Baby Potatoes in the Air Fryer?
Air-frying food is becoming increasingly popular because it cooks food evenly and quickly. However, you don't always want to eat the same thing repeatedly.
Luckily, plenty of recipes show how to make delicious dishes like pizza steak, chicken nuggets, and even wings. But what about those leftovers you don't want to throw away? Well, here's a great way to reheat them in the air fryer.
Why make foods with an Air fryer?
Air fryer recipes are fast and delicious ways to eat nutritious food. Air frying is a method of cooking that uses hot air circulators to circulate food so the outside gets crispy and the inside stays tender.
You can use any air fryer, but small ones are great for 1-2 people or if you're making single servings of something like kimchi fries or fried pickles.
You might think that because your recipe only takes 10 minutes in the air fryer, it won't be as good as when you'd cook it in an oven or on the stovetop - but I promise this isn't true! Air fryers get up to 400ºF (204ºC), which means they'll cook food as quickly as any other method.
Plus, since there's no oil involved - just some spices for flavor - most dishes will have fewer calories than if you used oil.
