Can you reheat potatoes in the air fryer?

These air fryer potatoes are a great option if you are planning them as part of a big feast, as they taste just as good when they are reheated!

Simply pop cold, cooked potatoes in the air fryer at 350F and heat them for about 4 to 5 minutes until they are crispy again. They taste like you’ve just made them!

What are the best potatoes to use?

I like to use yellow skinned potatoes that are starchy, like Yukon Gold. You can also use Russet potatoes. It’s best to avoid waxy potatoes like reds or fingerlings as they won’t get as fluffy on the inside.

What do you serve them with?

These air fried potatoes are great with so many main dishes. They are great with large celebration dinners as well as easy weeknight meals. Try them with:

  • These potatoes are savory and delicious! They have a beautiful golden crisp to the outside and a perfectly cooked inside. The fresh parsley and parmesan cheese is optional, but adds a great balance and freshness to the dish.
  • I prefer not to peel the potatoes, especially if they have thin skins, as they get nice and crispy. If you prefer, you can peel them.
  • Cut the potatoes into similar sized pieces so that they cook evenly.
  • Shake the basket halfway through cooking so that the potatoes crisp up all over.
