Get ready for a tasty treat with Air Fryer Potato Chips!
If you’ve been following for long, then you know that I LOVE my Air Fryer. I mean, I really love it. I’ve used it so much that I could honestly use a new one. I’ve nearly worn this one out.
Have you picked out an air fryer yet? If not, be sure to check out this post on How to Choose the Right Air Fryer.
After I made these onion rings and zucchini in the air fryer, I decided it was time for some homemade air fryer potato chips.
These are super simple because you really don’t need much, plus it’s very low oil.
I am now using a Ninja Foodi Air Fryer; however, you can check out a variety of different air fryers in my post on, How to Choose the Right Air Fryer.
What do you need for Air Fryer Potato Chips?
- Baking Potatos
- High Heat Oil Spray
That’s it, just 3 ingredients. Now the big thing is what oil should you use? Let’s talk about this!
What is the best oil spray for the Air Fryer?
I’ll be honest, generally, I tend to lean toward Olive Oil Spray; however, it’s actually best to use a high heat oil.
The best thing to do is keep in mind the smoke point of the oil, for instance if you are using an Olive Oil Spray, then smoke point is usually about 330 degrees.
These air fryer potato chips are going to be going at about 400 degrees, so an oil spray such as Grapeseed, Avocado, or Coconut, would actually be a better option.
I’ve linked to all of the information on those, so you can see the smoke point. In full disclosure, I work with Pompeian; however, this isn’t a sponsored post. They have a lot of great information on the smoke point on their website.
I actually love the taste of the Olive Oil Spray, but it won’t be as great when the chips are burnt, that’s why you want to be sure to choose an oil spray with a high smoke point.
That leads me to say that I would go with a spray, that way you get a light spray of oil not a coating. The whole idea with the air fryer is less calories, so keep that in mind.
Can you add different flavors to Air Fryer Potato Chips?
YES! It’s a fine idea to get creative, if you prefer you can do salt and rosemary, ranch seasoning, italian seasoning, barbecue seasoning.
It’s a great way to get creative with these Air Fryer Potato Chips and go with what you prefer.
We like to pair ours with burgers, I love sharing homemade potato chips with family and friends. It just seems like it pulls the whole dinner together.
Of course, they also make for a great snack.

I have the ninja as well. Do you put directly in or on the wire basket or the other plate?
Kristy Still says
I use the basket for these.
You must buy a dehydrator rack that is made to fit your ninja. As a ninja addict, I have two ninja foodis the 9in1 and the 5in1 grill. On Amazon I bought the racks and now can dehydrate or cook four five times more good using the same size foodi.
Do you only spray the oil on one side of the potato slices? Or do you spray the slices again when you turn them over? Also, do you spray the bottom of the air fryer before adding the potato slices? A newcomer to the air fryer here so always have questions! I am enjoying your recipes esp that many are short and simple. This Grand-mommy hates to cook too!

I usually spray both sides as I’m turning them over.
