Do you parboil air fryer potato wedges before air frying?

As you can see from my recipe I skip this step. I like recipes that are simple and easy. If you want to parboil them then you should find the potato wedges are fluffier and cook quicker in the airfryer. I would suggest you parboil the potato wedges for around 6-8 minutes in boiling, lightly salted water. Once parboiled drain, give them a gentle shake and then get them in to your pre-heated airfryer.
