Triple Cooked Chips


  • ▢4potatoes Maris Piper, Kind Edward, Russet or All rounders
  • ▢1 tbspcooking oil Or other oil such as sunflower or vegetable oil


First, prep your potatoes.

  • Wash well and peel the 4 potatoes
  • Cut into thick cut chips with a sharp knife. Ensure the potatoes are cut evenly. I went for 1cm wide or basically chunky chips size.
  • Keep them in cold water.
  • Next, boil the chips before air frying
  • You can use any large pot here.
  • Place the chips in a saucepan with plenty of cold salted water.
  • Bring the water to a gentle boil and cook until the potatoes are partially cooked but still firm.
  • To check, prick the potatoes with a knife – the knife should meet a little resistance.
  • Drain the potatoes and let them cool completely on a wire rack or place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Air Fry Chips
  • Preheat your air fryer to 140°C (280°F).
  • Once preheated, carefully add the potatoes in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Add a generous coating of cooking oil spray or brush with 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • Air fry for 8-10 minutes OR until a crust forms but there is no colour on the chips.
  • Remove the chips temporarily from the air fryer basket.
  • Now, preheat the air fryer to 170°C (340°F) and carefully add the chips again, cooking them for a further 5-10 minutes OR until they are crispy and golden-brown.
  • Adjust the temperature so that they do not burn too quickly at the edges.
  • Sprinkle the chips with salt or flavoured salt to taste while they are still hot.


Use potatoes that have high starch content for crispier chips

Ensure to cut all the chips approximately the same size

Blanch the potatoes until they are soft but not totally cooked through

You may have to adjust the timings and temperature based on your air fryer model and type of potato

Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket – this leads to steaming rather than air frying

Shake the air fryer half way and add more oil.

Serve the triple cooked chips immediately, with your choice of dipping sauce or as a side dish for your favourite meal.
