To start, wash the potatoes, and peel them if you want. I like to leave the skin on mine, but it’s totally a personal preference. Next, cut the potatoes in half and then slice the halves into wedges. Then put the wedges into a large bowl.

Next, drizzle the potatoes with olive oil. You can also use any type of vegetable oil. Then sprinkle the wedges with salt and pepper. Now, toss everything together to coat the wedges with the oil and seasonings.

Finally, it’s time to cook the wedges! Put the seasoned potatoes into the basket of the air fryer and cook at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.

But halfway through cooking, you need to remove the air fryer basket and shake it so that all the wedges toss around. This helps the air fryer potato wedges cook more evenly. Then place the basket back into the air fryer to finish cooking.
