Although nothing quite beats the taste of using fresh potatoes to make air fryer roast potatoes, having some cans of potatoes in the cupboard are great to have on standby. And when tinned potatoes are cooked in an air fryer they do come out crispy and golden.

What You Need For Air Fryer Tinned Potatoes

  • Tinned potatoes – use any brand of tinned potatoes. Most of them are stored in water, sometimes with salt, so consider this when seasoning them.
  • Oil – I used 1 tbsp of olive oil, this helps to crisp up the skin and add some extra flavour. You can use a different oil if you prefer.
  • Seasoning – double check the can of potatoes ingredients list to see if they have already been seasoned. I like to add a pinch of salt before air frying them, but this is optional.
  • Air fryer – I have cooked canned potatoes in various different models of air fryers, including Ninja and Cosori.

Preparing and Cooking Canned Potatoes In An Air Fryer

Open the tin of potatoes and drain away the water.
