Remember my confession a while back when I shared the Air Fryer Mexican Street Corn Recipe about how I had fallen head over heels in love with my air fryer? My husband’s parents had been telling me for well over two years how much I needed one and about their love for their air fryer, but I took my own sweet time to jump in the air fryer game! 🙂

And now that I have, oh me! I’m find all sorts of things to make in it! And you know I’ll share all about it with you guys! Like this Air Fryer Baked Potato. Talk about perfection! I’ve shared before about how I make baked potatoes in the oven, in the slow cooker and even in the Instant Pot, but oh my goodness, I just had to share this easy peasy way in the air fryer as well!

I have the Phillips XL air fryer (affiliate) and an easily fit three to four large potatoes in my air fryer. You’ll want to see how many fit comfortably in yours without over stuffing.

I scrub my potatoes well, prick them with a fork or sharp knife, and then rub them with just a touch of olive oil, about half of a tablespoon total, and kosher salt.

Then I arrange the potatoes in the air fryer basket to make sure that the air can easily circulate all the way around the potatoes.

I set the heat setting to 390º F and set the timer for 30 minutes. At 30 minutes, I open the air fryer and gently press on the sides of the potatoes. If they give really easily, then they are done. If not, I close the air fryer and cook them for up to 10 minutes more.

  2. I bought your cook book and keep up with you online for the most part. How about a special on air frying recipes? Also electronic pressure cookers recipes would be nice? Maybe something down loadable?

  7. I’ve never tried the air fryer but it looks nice 😊 Actually I don’t have one, I thought it just uses to fry potatoes. Well, anyways, I’m looking forward to buying one in near future!

  9. My air fryer baked potatoes tonight are coated with coconut oil and pink Himalayan salt. Should be awesome 
    Thanks

  10. maybe it’s the wattage or maybe i tried to many. I did 3 potatoes and had ample room i did go up to 400 degrees at 30 min still hard 10 more minutes still not as fluffy as expected had to finish in microwave to get center done?????

  11. Shouldn’t the nutrition portion be 1 potato per serving? Going to try this recipe tonight. Thanks.

  12. It came out perfect! Thanks!

  13. If the recipe is for 4 potatoes and we only cook 2 do we ajust the cook time in 1/2? Thanks

    • I’d like to know the answer about possibly less time too. 😯

      • I would follow the recipe instructions and check the potatoes for doneness at 30 minutes…it’s possible they may need the additional minutes as noted in the recipe or they could be done at that point. Thanks so much! Enjoy! xo
