How to Cook Air Fryer Roast Potatoes

How to Cook Air Fryer Roast Potatoes

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into 4cm chunks. Rinse the potatoes in cold water, then dry them with a clean tea towel.
  2. Place the cut potatoes in the basket of your air fryer and spray them with oil. Toss them to coat them all over, then spray again. Cook at 180°C for 15 minutes and shake the basket halfway through.
  3. Increase the temperature to 200°C and cook for a further 10 minutes or until golden and crisp.
  4. Season with salt before serving and enjoy!

Extra Tips

Follow these tips for maximum results:

  • Soak the potatoes in water for at least half an hour before you want to cook them. This will help draw out some of the starch so that they crisp up better.
  • Pat the potatoes completely dry after soaking. You don’t want any moisture getting into the air fryer to ruin your crispy roast potatoes.
  • Preheat the air fryer so that the potatoes are added when the temperature is hot.
  • Garnish with fresh rosemary or chopped parsley just before serving!


These crispy air fryer roast potatoes are quick to make, they’re fluffy on the inside and crispy crunchy on the outside, but best of all they’re much healthier than ordinary roast potatoes. They make a great side dish for any meal and are an especially good accompaniment to a Sunday roast!
