What Are Potato Wedges?

Potato Wedges are irregular wedge-shaped slices of potato, often large and unpeeled, that are typically baked or deep fried.

The crispy wedges are typically sold at diners and fast food restaurants. Potato Wedges are usually seasoned with a variety of spices, including paprika, onion powder, garlic salt and black pepper.

In some regions of the United States, particularly Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northern Utah, Northeast Ohio, Wisconsin and Upstate New York, a popular variation of potato wedges are known as jojos.

Jojos are potato wedges that are battered, seasoned, and either deep-fried in the same vat as fried chicken, or pressure-fried.

In Australia, potato wedges are a common bar food enjoyed with craft beer, that are almost always served with some kind of sauce for dipping such as sour cream, sweet chilli, ketchup, ranch, and honey mustard.

In Germany, they are known as Kartoffelspalten (‘potato clefts’), Sweden calls them klyftpotatis, Czech chef’s make Americké brambory (‘American potatoes’) and Finland enjoys lohkoperunat.

Once my family purchased a trendy new air fryer we were excited to test out some of our favourite tried and true recipes. These Air Fried Potato Wedges are so easy to make and are addictively crunchy and crispy. We know everyone in your family will love them!

Best Air Fryers

An air fryer is a small countertop convection oven designed to simulate deep frying without submerging the food in oil. A fan circulates hot air at high speed, producing a crisp layer via browning reactions.

In 2010, Philips introduced the Airfryer brand of convection oven at a consumer electronics fair in Berlin. It used the patented Rapid Air technology, though the term air fryer is now used generically.

Early air fryers were barrel-shaped, though more recently, many have come to resemble toaster ovens and pressure cookers, offering additional functions like toasting, baking, dehydrating and rotisserie.

A decade after their launch, Air Fryers are now one of the trendiest kitchen appliance. They are particularly popular with gourmands living in condos or apartments in big cities like Toronto as they reduce the number of appliances taking up space in your kitchen.

  • Hamilton Beach: I tested this recipe with a Hamilton Beach toaster oven-style air fryer. They are an excellent option for those looking for an affordable air fryer and I particularly like mine as it allowed me to replace my toaster, dehydrator and rotisserie. It’s also easier to spread food out and make it crispy by using a baking tray rather than a basket.
  • Instant Vortex: This popular air fryer is brought to you by the inventors of the popular Instant Pot. It’s 6 quart capacity features an easy to clean tray that air frys, roasts and bakes.
  • COSORI: This 5.8 quart air fryer is an 11-in-1 cooker featuring a nonstick basket and helpful shake reminder setting.
  • Ninja: This premium brand is the perfect option for those looking to invest in a heavy duty stainless steel air fryer. The product has been designed to look similar to an Instant Pot, with the top of the air fryer flipping backwards so you can easily lower a basket filled with food.
  • NuWave: This sleek digital air fryer features a traditional removable basket and reaches temperatures up to 390 F.
