I love these air-fryer potato wedges because the outside gets golden brown and crispy while the interior stays fluffy and tender. Try them with steak, roasts or even burgers. —Linda Rock, Stratford, Wisconsin

Air-Fryer Potato Wedges Tips

Why are my air-fryer potato wedges not crispy?

Every air fryer works a little differently, so if your potato wedges aren’t crispy enough, check your appliance's recommended timing and temperatures. Also, make sure to place wedges in a single row in your air fryer basket. Preheating your air fryer before adding your first batch can also help achieve crispier results.

How do you store air-fryer potato wedges?

It’s best to eat these air-fryer potato wedges fresh and hot, but they should last 3-4 days in a sealed bag or container in the fridge. Simply throw them back into the air fryer for a few minutes to reheat. Here's how long lots of other leftovers will last.
