Now the actual cooking time for these potatoes is about the same as when I bake in them in the oven. The part that makes them fast is that I don’t have to wait 20+ minutes for the oven to reach 400 degrees before I can get going. I can literally just turn it on & the cooking starts.
It took me about 5 minutes to wash & cut my potatoes. Then I just tossed them with some olive oil & seasonings in a large bowl. Transferred them to my air fryer basket & cooked at 400 for 20 minutes.
I did stir them around after the first 10 minutes. Once the timer went off – they were DONE! As in ABSOLUTELY PERFECT & ready to enjoy! This potato-loving girl was VERY HAPPY.
Here are some commonly asked questions
What air fryer do you use?
We actually have 2 air fryers. I have a smaller one from Phillips that we started with. But the more I used the air fryer I realized I really wanted a digital screen. It wasn’t any more expensive, in fact- our XL air fryer from GoWISE was less expensive than the Phillips and I love its ease & extra funtions. Plus it comes with a lot of the extra accessories I like to use when cooking with my fryer.
HOW DO YOU MAKE Air Fryer Steak Fries?

- Drizzle olive oil over potatoes, toss to coat.
- Sprinkle in garlic, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper, toss again.
- Place in the air fryer basket and fry at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
