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.

    1. 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

  1. I made these last night and not only were they absolutely beautiful to look at they were the best baked potatoes ever. Never again will I do the microwave when in a hurry or have to heat up the kitchen with the big oven for two potatoes. Thank you so much for sharing. One of these potatoes, loaded…its a meal!!!!

    1. I’m so glad this worked so well for you, too, Jeannine. I love baking my potatoes in the air fryer. Thanks!

  2. The airfryer is currently in the dishwasher! I will be giving these a go in about 45 minutes! I can’t wait will let you know how they turn out! Thanks for the recipe.

  3. In case anyone wants to know, potatoes are perfectly done when they are at 210 degrees. I hate burning my fingers so I just poke them with my thermometer. Easy peasy

    1. Deb, I’m sorry you missed it but the instructions for temperature and time are in Instruction 2 of the recipe. The temperature is 390º F.
