How do you preheat an Air Fryer?
It depends on the kind of air fryer you have, but most models take three to five minutes to preheat. Just turn the air fryer on to the temperature you want to cook the food at. Once preheated the preheating light will go off. For this recipe, you definitely need to preheat the air fryer first otherwise the potatoes will take longer to cook.
How do you peel and dice sweet potatoes?
The easiest way to peel them is with a vegetable peeler. Once peeled you can dice them into 1" pieces. First, slice the potatoes in half lengthwise. Place each half with the flat side down and slice it into pieces down the length of the potato. Holding those slices together, cut across the potatoes so you have 1" cubes. 
Are you supposed to eat the skin on sweet potatoes?
Yes, you can eat the skin on them. In fact, the skin has a lot of nutrients so it's good for you! My family prefers peeled potatoes, but if you want to leave the skin on and roast the potatoes that way it will work just fine.
How do I store leftovers?
You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for two to three days. They will lose their crispiness, but still taste delicious! Properly stored in a freezer-safe container, you can also freeze roasted potatoes for up to two to three months. Just make sure they are completely cooled before you wrap and store them in the freezer.
How do I reheat leftovers?
The fastest way to reheat roasted potatoes is in the microwave, but they won't turn crispy. So, if want the leftovers to be crispy you should reheat them in the oven or use your air fryer again. Just spread them out on a baking sheet and roast them again at 400 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until they are crispy or put them in the air fryer basket at 400 degrees F and heat them for 4-5 minutes.
