Best Potatoes to Air Fry?

  • Russet potatoes are great because of their high starch content and crispy outside texture.
  • We love yukon gold or any gold variety of potatoes. They are so creamy and tender. Air frying these are awesome.
  • White potatoes are great too.
  • Fingerling potatoes are fantastic! Cut them them in half lengthwise so they can cook quicker and all the way through.
  • Red potatoes are waxy and don’t crisp up that well. They’re lowest on our list.
