I've never thought about using tin potatoes.

I never par boil mine, too much effort lol
I cut them roughly 1cm x 1cm, spray the tray with fry light, throw the chips on, bit more fry light, salt, paprika if I feel like it, and bake for 35 minutes (ish)
I tend to flip them around the 15 minutes mark, and then check them again after another 20 minutes... they're usually cooked through and browned on the edges too

If I cheat and use tinned new potatoes (cheap as you like, no difference) and cut them into wedge style chips, spray with frylight and sprinkle with salt and pepper etc, they come out the most successful of all the combos I've tried in the past.
That's an awesome idea. So gonna try that If they come out anywhere near half decent I think that might be my new regular at dinnertime

We just chop them into chip shapes, and bake in a really hot oven (although its an aga so you never quite know what the temperature is!) for 30 mins. Usually come out fine -the thinner they are, the crispier they are.
What rung do you use for your oven shelf in your aga , I would be interested to know as I have yet to make them in my Aga

I use the microwave steam bags to Parboil mine, after 5 mins in the bag, I shake them in a basket to fluff them up then throw them in the airfryer. The type of potatoes is also important, I use rooster or maris piper but any floury potato should crisp up. If your chips are soggy you are probably using a waxy potato. For a change I also use sweet potatoes and toss them in a natural yoghurt them sprinkle seasoning on, they taste like coated chips, lovely

Hi I chop mine in the morning and pop in salted water all day supposedly removes some starch any ways I then nuke them for five mins and add 2 tsp of carotino oil then air fryer for 20-25 mins. I find red skinned potatoes work best and get crispy

Forgot too add its 4 syns for oil
