Twice fried, air fried potato chips

From Cookipedia

Air fried chips are without doubt, the tastiest and probably the healthiest for of fried potatoes.

We use our air frier about three times a week, mostly for chips. Recently we've been twice-frying them. They are slightly better than single air-fried chips but because they can be ready after the final 15 minutes of air-frying, their cooking can be perfectly timed to match the accompanying meal.

I just thought it might be useful to outline this trick as I've not seen it suggested anywhere else.

Put simply, prepare and cook your air-fried chips as normal, switch the air fryer off after the chips have been cooking for about 18 minutes and leave them to cool in the air fryer for up to an hour or so. 15 minutes before you are ready to serve you meal, switch the frier on again for the final 15 minutes.
