Air-Fryer Sweet Potato Chips Tips

Do I need to soak and peel the sweet potatoes before air frying?

Yes! Soaking and peeling give your potatoes their crispy, crunchy texture. It also prevents them from sticking to each other. (If you don't have sweet potatoes on hand, make this air-fryer potato chips recipe with regular potatoes.)

Why aren't my air-fryer sweet potato chips crispy?

Closely following our recipe's steps will provide you with crispy results. One of the major ways that will make your potato chips come out crispy is to cook them in a single layer. That way, there will be plenty of air circulation to get that crunch you desire while helping each chip cook evenly. Here are some other air-fryer cooking tips you should know.
