Air fryer baby potatoes make a great side or stuffing to your favorite wraps. They cook up crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside.

Baby potatoes have a naturally thin skin and waxy texture. These features make them perfect for the air fryer since they help ensure the outside gets crispy as they cook. And the inside stays creamy and moist, which makes for a great combination.

The outside of our potatoes have a great coating for seasoning, so you really won’t have to do much to enjoy the perfect potato in the air fryer.

Storing, Freezing, and Reheating Air Fryer Potatoes

Once you make the air fryer potatoes, allow them to cool completely. When cooled, place the potatoes in an airtight container.

Small Potatoes in Air Fryer FAQ

The following are a couple of questions and answers about making small potatoes in the air fryer.

Why do you soak potatoes in water before air frying? 

When you make fries or wedges, you will want to soak them beforehand. The reason you soak them is to draw out some of the extra starch and then wash it away. Removing the starch can help to make the fries crispier and less likely to stick together.

For crispier small potatoes, you can soak them for about 20 minutes in slightly salty water and then rinse them before frying them.

Do potatoes need to be boiled before air frying?

You do not necessarily need to, though it can help with larger potatoes. Boiling them ahead of time can give them a softer interior and crispier outside. When using smaller potatoes, like we do, they cook through quickly with no need to boil them first.
