Is An Air Fryer Better Than An Oven?

Air fryers and ovens both have their own set of pros and cons. However, when it comes to cooking sliced potatoes, an air fryer is definitely the way to go. Air fryers cook food faster and at a higher temperature than ovens, so your potatoes will be nice and crispy on the outside. Plus, you won’t have to worry about flipping them halfway through cooking. Simply place them in the air fryer and let it do its thing!

Can I Use My Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid Instead Of A Regular Air Fryer?

Yes, you can! If you have an Instant Pot with an air fryer lid, then you can use that to make your sliced potatoes. Just follow the same instructions as you would for a regular air fryer. The only difference is that your cooking time may be slightly shorter since the Instant Pot air fryer lid cooks food faster than a regular air fryer.

Tips For Cooking Potato Slices in Air Fryer

  1. Use thin sliced potatoes in the air fryer. Thin slices cook faster and more evenly than thick slices.
  2. If you want extra crispy potatoes, preheat your air fryer for 3-5 minutes before adding the potatoes. This will help them to cook up nice and crispy.
  3. For extra flavor, you can add some seasoning to the potatoes before cooking. Try using garlic powder, onion powder, or even some dried herbs
