🥘 Recommended equipment
Here are the main kitchen equipment tools I have used to create this recipe.
My air fryer has been one of the best kitchen gadgets I ever invested in. And I’m absolutely obsessed with it. With 2 fussy kids who don’t eat the same food as me or each other, my air fryer gets used every single day to make them fast, nutrient-packed food that they will eat.
I love cooking with an air fryer because food cooks much more quickly, is more crispy and tastier, and saves a fortune when it comes to my fuel bill.

👩🏫 Frequently asked questions
Cutting and soaking the potatoes for 30 minutes, or more, in cold water helps reduce some of the starchiness of the potatoes. And this will make them crispier after frying. But make sure to dry the soaked potatoes before frying.

Air Fryer Greek Potatoes
- 450g white potatoes
- 4 sprays olive oil spray
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or Greek seasoning blend
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 fresh minced garlic clove
- 1 pinch of pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
- Peel the potatoes and dice into ½ inch cubes.
- Add the potatoes to a large mixing bowl along with the seasoning, sea salt, lemon juice, garlic, and pepper. Give it a good stir.
- Transfer the potatoes to your air fryer basket and spread them out. A single layer of potatoes will result in a crispier potato but they will still cook if there are several layers of potatoes stacked on top of each other.
- Cook at 400F/200C for 15-25 minutes shaking the basket every 5 minutes so the potatoes all cook evenly. The time it takes to cook the potatoes will depend on the size of your air fryer basket and how many layers of potatoes you have.
Now it’s your turn to make magic with food.
