Craving a crispy, potatoey snack? Look no further than air fryer frozen potato wedges. With just an air fryer, you can transform your favorite frozen wedges into a hot and satisfying treat. Don’t forget to pair them with your favorite dip for the ultimate snacking experience. And if you’re feeling adventurous, we’ve got an easy recipe for homemade potato wedges in the air fryer too!
Making frozen wedges in the air fryer is a breeze. Here are some tips and considerations to keep in mind:
Most pre-packaged frozen wedges have enough oil in the outer coating to achieve crispiness. But if you’re craving extra crunch, add a little bit more oil to the frozen wedges before tossing them in the air fryer.
While pre-packed frozen wedges come seasoned, you can always add more flavor like seasoning salt after they’re done cooking.
To ensure crispy perfection, avoid overcrowding the air fryer tray. Give the wedges enough room to cook evenly and get that irresistible crispiness. Our 6-quart capacity air fryer cooks one pound of frozen wedges beautifully.
After enjoying your delicious wedges, clean the air fryer tray once it cools down. This simple step will help keep your air fryer in top condition for future cooking adventures.

Turn on your air fryer and preheat it to 385 degrees Fahrenheit.
For an extra crisp, place your frozen potato wedges in a mixing bowl and add one teaspoon of oil. Coat the wedges evenly (optional step).
Once the air fryer is heated up, arrange the frozen potato wedges on the tray, ensuring they don’t overlap too much. This allows for even cooking and a crispier outcome.
Cook the wedges for 8-9 minutes or until they reach your preferred level of crispiness. Remember to shake or flip them halfway through for even cooking. Cooking times may vary depending on your air fryer model.
When the wedges are hot and crispy, transfer them to a bowl.
If you’re using unflavored wedges, add your favorite seasoning salt or regular table salt to enhance the taste.
Serve your potato wedges with a dipping sauce such as ketchup or chipotle mayo. Indulge and enjoy!
Unlike many other frozen foods, air-fried potato wedges can be enjoyed cold or the next day without compromising flavor. Store any leftover cooked wedges in a sealed container in the fridge. You can reheat them in the microwave or air fryer, or enjoy them cold (we do that often!).
