  • 8 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon salt - for water
  • 4 cups russet potatoes - 2 large russet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt - to taste


  • Pour water into large bowl, add salt and stir until salt is dissolved
  • Thinly slice the potatoes to ⅛ inch thick. Using a mandoline is highly recommended.
  • Soak the potatoes in the saltwater for 30 minutes.
  • Drain the potatoes and pat dry with paper towel. ** see notes
  • Preheat the Air Fryer to 330°F. It takes about 5 minutes.
  • Add potato slices to large bowl.
  • Drizzle potatoes with olive oil and stir to coat.
  • Layer the potatoes in the preheated air fryer. ** see notes
  • Cook the potatoes at 330°F for 20-25 minutes or until desired browning. Make sure to shake the basket halfway through cooking.
  • Season the potatoes with salt when done cooking.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.



* Drying - it’s easiest to line a large cookie sheet with paper towel and layer the potatoes between sheet of paper towels
** Cooking potatoes that are close to the same size is best, if possible. And layering in a single layer takes a little longer, but they cook more evenly.
