  • 3 medium russet potatoes sliced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C), for 5 minutes.
  • Clean and dry the potatoes. Slice them about 1/4" thick. Put the slices into cold water for about 3 minutes to wash off the starch.
  • Drain the water and pat the potatoes dry. Toss them with the olive oil and salt.
  • Add the potatoes in a single layer in the air fryer. Cook for 12 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through.
