How to Cook Potato Chips Cuisinart Air Fryer

Cooking potato chips in a Cuisinart Air Fryer is a straightforward process. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you make crispy homemade potato chips:


To make potato chips in a Cuisinart Air Fryer with these ingredients and achieve the desired flavor:

  1. Potatoes (russet or your preferred variety)
  2. Cooking oil (preferably vegetable or canola oil)
  3. Salt (to taste)
  4. Optional seasonings: pepper, paprika, garlic powder, etc.


Follow the simple directions below to make Potato Chips in a Cuisinart Air Fryer:

Step 1: Preheat the Cuisinart Air Fryer:

Turn on your Cuisinart Air Fryer and preheat it to 375°F (190°C) for about 3-5 minutes.

Step 2: Prepare the Potatoes:

Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly. Thinly slice the potatoes using a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife. Aim for uniform slices to ensure even cooking.

Step 3: Rinse and Dry:

Rinse the sliced potatoes under cold water to remove excess starch. Pat them dry thoroughly with a paper towel to ensure crispiness.

Step 4: Season the Potato Chips:

In a large bowl, toss the dry potato slices with a little cooking oil. Add salt and any optional seasonings you desire, and toss to coat the chips evenly.

Step 5: Load the Air Fryer Basket:

Place the seasoned potato slices in the Cuisinart Air Fryer basket in a single layer, ensuring they are not overcrowded. If necessary, cook the potato chips in batches.

Step 6: Air Fry:

Slide the loaded basket into the Air Fryer. Set the timer for approximately 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on the chips as they cook since cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the slices.

Step 7: Check for Doneness:

After the timer is up, open the Cuisinart Air Fryer and check the potato chips. They should be golden brown and crispy.

Step 8: Let Them Cool:

Once the potato chips are cooked to your desired crispiness, remove them from the Air Fryer and let them cool on a wire rack. As they cool, they will become even crispier.

Step 9: Store and Serve:

Store any leftover chips in an airtight container to maintain their freshness. Serve your homemade potato chips as a delightful and healthier snack option!


  1. Cooking times may vary based on the thickness of the potato slices and the specific model of your Cuisinart Air Fryer. Adjust the cooking time as needed to achieve your desired level of crispiness.
  2. Be cautious while using the air frying function, as the Air Fryer basket and the chips inside will be hot during operation.
  3. Enjoy your delicious homemade potato chips, and feel free to experiment with different seasonings to create various flavors!
