 Can anyone let me know what kind of potatoes make nice chips. We bought a Philips air fryer for chips but when I tried to make chips they just would not cook.

Hello Linda, welcome to the forum.

I have a Tefal Actifry and I use any variety of potato, whatever is in the shops (normally Mercadona) at the time. Some take a little longer and some don't colour up or crisp quite as nicely, but they all taste good! I have found I get the best results if I cut the chips or roasties about 30 minutes before I want to cook them and soak them in a bowl of water to remove some of the starch, then dry them well before cooking.

For any future questions you have, look in the Forum Index to see which section would be best for your query, you are likely to get more views and responses! This section you have posted in is normally the preserve of Admin.

Good luck with the chips! (ps. fried eggs don't do well in an air fryer!  ;D)
