  • Air Fryer


  • 900 g 2.2 lbFrozen roast potatoes
  • salt and pepper to season if desired


  • Preheat the air fryer at 200C/400F for 5 mins. I like to do this as I believe it gives the potatoes a good head start as it would if oven-baked.
  • Transfer the frozen potatoes into the air fryer basket and cook at 200C/400F for 15 to 20 minutes depending on the sizes of the potatoes until fork tender, golden and crispy on the outside. Shake the air fryer basket every 10 minutes to allow even cooking.
    Be careful when removing the air fryer basket from the base tin so that the dripped fat does not spill on the floor or on you. It will be hot so be careful! Remove the potatoes with a tong or a fork to avoid kitchen accidents.
  • Season the potatoes as desired whilst it is still hot, serve as desired, and enjoy!


Do not overfill the basket, depending on the size of your air fryer basket, only fill it halfway through and give it a shake every 5 minutes for air circulation and even cooking.
Can this be made ahead?  Yes, you, however, make sure that it is consumed within 24 hours. Also, thawed frozen food should never be returned to the freezer. Simply cook the amount you want at a time.
Can I cook frozen diced potatoes in the air fryer?  The short answer is yes, diced or cubed potatoes are usually smaller in size than roast potatoes. Adjust cooking time accordingly, alternatively shake the air fryer basket at 5 minutes then check for doneness from 12 to minutes.
Can I reheat roast potatoes in the air fryer?  Yes, you can, and it one of the best ways too. Simply put leftovers or cold spud in the air fryer and cook at 150C/360F for 3 to 5 minutes.
