  • 4 small Russet potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Peel potatoes and slice them thinly using a knife or a mandolin. If your knife skills are good, you can slice them thinly, so each slice is so thin, it’s almost see-through. If you have a mandoline and would prefer to use that, adjust it to about 1/16″ and slice.
  2. Place slices in a large bowl and cover with water. Soak the potato slices for 20 to 30 minutes. See note.
  3. Line a large sheet with paper towels and dry the slices on both sides.
  4. Place potatoes in a clean bowl, drizzle with oil and season with salt. Toss to coat.
  5. Preheat air fryer to 350° F for 4 minutes.

  6. Spread potato slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket or rack.
  7. Cook for 12 minutes. Flip the chips and bake for 3 to 5 minutes more. This will depend on how thick you cut the slices. Some chips will be done after the first 12 minutes. Just remove them into a bowl and cook the rest.
  8. Remove from air fryer and place in a bowl.
  9. Serve.

Recipe Notes

  • Soaking in water helps remove the starch from potato slices. It prevents sticking and helps create perfectly crispy chips.
  • Keep in mind, that thinner slices will cook faster. Try to keep them the same thickness, as much as possible.
