Airfryer Owners – Can You Tell Me About Cubed Potatoes Please!
I am considering the Airfryer. One of my favorite dishes to make are cubed “breakfast potatoes.” I cube the potatoes, rinse out the starch, toss them in oil and seasonings and then cook them on a baking sheet. I am wondering a few things about how these would work in the Airfyer.
About how many cubed potatoes do you think the regular unit could hold? I am fine with purchasing the shelf to do an additional layer.
Any ideas on how to get the seasonings to stick to the potatoes with less oil?
Thanks to anyone who may be able to answer these for me. I just love shopping with HSN and getting fun new goodies, but I still need to be selective. I know this unit and accsessories will put a real dent in my shopping for other goodies and of course will take up some real space. I figure I should know how it would work for one of my fave things to make before purchasing it.
Hello , I have owned the Phillips AirFryer for about 7 months and have tried many recipes and off the cuff seasonings. My successes have been to coat the food with dry spices of your choice, place them in the fryer and spray with cooking oil. I do have the shelf and recommend it to double the cooking portion and also (sometimes) allow meat drippings to season vegetables or potatoes on the lower shelf. I have loaded up both layers with chicken wings, stuffed mushrooms or jalapeno poppers for example and they cook crisply and evenly. Back to your question, season the potatoes and then spray each layer with cooking spray, olive oil, coconut oil etc. The oil will crisp the surface and seal in the seasonings. I love this appliance and can share one tip for cleaning. Over time some splatter may get stuck up in the heating coil and fan which can smoke. I wish I knew earlier to clean it after every couple of uses by adding 1 cup white vinegar and some water to the basin and cook on high for 15 minutes. Then wipe what you can reach with a wet paper towel. This will avoid the splatter build up. I hope this is helpful.
