These delightfully crispy Air Fryer Potato Chips are quite simply the best homemade potato chips that you will ever make! Now you can enjoy potato chips anytime you like, and they're not only healthier, but also way better than a freshly opened bag of chips from the store!
Wash and slice your potatoes so that they are all thin and evenly cut. The easiest way to do this is with a mandolin slicer (be sure to use the safety guide or a cut-resistant glove!). However, the slicing side of a 4-sided cheese grater also works, as does slicing the potatoes by hand.
2 large russet potatoes
Transfer your sliced potatoes into a medium-size bowl and cover them completely with cold water. Allow the potatoes to soak for at least 30 minutes, up to a couple of hours, to remove excess starch for best results.
Preheat the air fryer to 360°F (182°C).
Drain and rinse the potatoes, then pat dry using paper towels. Return them to a bowl then toss with the olive oil and season with salt.
1 tablespoon olive oil, salt
Arrange your potato slices in an even layer (a little overlap is OK) in your air fryer basket or air fryer trays.
Cook in the air fryer at 360°F (182°C) for 10 to 15 minutes. Be sure to check and flip them about 5 to 7 minutes.
When chips are done they should be crisp and not soggy, set them out on a wire rack till they have cooled completely.
When cooled, enjoy them now or put them into an air tight container for later, enjoy!
