  • Cut your potatoes into similar sized wedges. I like to cut them in half lengthways, then cut each half into 3 or 4 wedges.
  • Add the potato wedges to a bowl, along with the oil and seasoning, and stir to coat each wedge evenly.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 355 °F / 180 °C. Add the potato wedges to the air fryer basket, but be careful to leave some space between each wedge. You might have to cook the potatoes in batches, depending on the size of your air fryer.
  • Air fry for 5 minutes, then shake the basket and turn the potato wedges, and air fry for 5 more minutes.
  • Test to ensure that the potatoes are soft through the middle by piercing them with a fork. They are done if the fork can be inserted with little resistance.


  • Season generously. Let’s be honest; salty, seasoned potatoes are the best.
  • Try to cut the wedges into similar sizes. This will help them cook more evenly.
  • To allow the air to flow through the air fryer, you should avoid overcrowding the basket. Keep the wedges slightly separated.
  • Craving cheesy potatoes? Add some shredded cheese or parmesan on top after air frying them.
  • Add a pinch of chili powder for a kick of spice.
  • Greek style potatoes with rosemary and lemon juice are always popular.
  • Salt and pepper potatoes goes with literally anything, and is a great option if you’re cooking a traditional meat and potatoes dinner.
