Air Fryer Baked Potato Recipe

There’s nothing like a perfectly baked potato, and with the air fryer, it’s easier than ever! This Air Fryer Baked Potato Recipe is one of my go-to recipes when I need a comforting side dish that doesn’t take much effort. The air fryer gives the potatoes a wonderfully crispy skin with a fluffy inside, all in less time than the oven. Just season, set, and forget—before you know it, you’ve got a versatile side that goes with almost anything.

Baked Potato Ingredients

  • Russet Potatoes: Large, starchy potatoes ideal for baking, yielding a fluffy interior and a crisp exterior when cooked.
  • Olive Oil or Spray Oil: Used to coat the potatoes, enhancing flavor and helping the skin become crispy during cooking.
  • Salt: Adds essential seasoning, bringing out the natural flavors of the potatoes and improving the taste of their crispy skins.

How To Make Air Fryer Baked Potato

Thoroughly wash the potatoes under running water and dry them with a paper towel.

Use a fork to prick each potato multiple times; this allows steam to release while they cook.

Coat each potato with olive oil or a spray oil, then season with salt.Heat the air fryer to 385°F for about 3-5 minutes.

Arrange the potatoes in the air fryer basket, spaced so they do not touch.

Cook the potatoes at 385°F for about 60 minutes, adjusting the time based on their size.

Turn the potatoes over halfway through the cooking time to cook evenly.

Test the potatoes for doneness by piercing them with a fork; they should be soft.

Remove the potatoes from the air fryer and let them sit for a few minutes before cutting them open.

Add butter, herbs and any other garnishings you wish to your air fried baked potato.

Reheating Baked Potatoes In Air Fryer

Wondering how to reheat a baked potato?

To reheat baked potatoes in the air fryer, start by preheating the air fryer to 350°F (175°C) for a few minutes. Place the baked potatoes in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not overcrowded. Reheat them at 350°F (175°C) for 8-10 minutes, flipping them halfway through for even heating. If needed, reheat for an additional 2-3 minutes until they are hot. Enjoy your perfectly reheated baked potatoes!
