Expert Tips

  • If you’re using more than one can of potatoes, don’t overcrowd your air fryer basket as they won’t cook evenly. To prevent this without having to cook them in batches, shake your air fryer during baking to toss the potatoes so they cook evenly.

Troubleshooting

Your air fryer needs more air circulation. Make sure the basket potatoes is not overcrowded with potatoes and give them a shake throughout the cooking process to ensure even cooking.

A spritz of cooking spray over the basket before adding your potatoes will solve this problem.

Keep an eye on the cooking time and maybe dial back the temperature if you’re nearing charcoal territory.

When reheating, keep it short and sweet. Check at intervals to prevent over-crisping.
