Potatoes – I used 6 Yukon gold potatoes. While any potato will work to make wedges, I like Yukon or Russet potatoes best.

Tips & Tricks
- Don’t skip the boiling of the potatoes. This par cooking helps them get nice and crispy in the air fryer while still being soft in the middle.
- Cut your potatoes the same size so they cook at the same pace.
- Drain the potatoes very well after boiling, if they are still wet pat them dry.
How to Store Air Fryer Potato Wedges
These potato wedges will keep for a few days in the fridge. When reheating them you can place them back in the air fryer so they crisp up again.
You can also freeze the potato wedges for a few months in the freezer.
What kind of potato is best for potato wedges?
There really is no right or wrong answer on this one. I prefer Yukon gold potatoes but you may prefer a different kind of potato. You’ll have to make them a few different times with different potatoes to see which ones you like the best.
We have also made wedges using sweet potatoes which is a nice change of pace from white potatoes.
Do I have to peel the potatoes before cooking them?
No, you don’t need to peel the potatoes. This is also a matter of personal preference.
Is boiling the potatoes necessary?
Yes, you should boil the potatoes before placing them in the air fryer. This par cooking cuts down on the time it takes to cook the potatoes through.
I don’t have any ground coriander, what else can I use?
If you don’t have any of the spices on hand, feel free to substitute them for those that you do have on hand.
Are potato wedges and Jojos the same thing?
In some states in the US potato wedges are known as jojos; Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Nebraska to name a few.
