Air Fryer Baked Potato

  1. Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly to remove any dirt. You can leave the skin on for added texture and flavor.
  2. Dry the potatoes with a paper towel or clean kitchen towel.
  3. Prick the potatoes with a fork a few times to allow steam to escape during cooking. This helps prevent the potatoes from bursting.
  4. Rub the potatoes with a little olive oil to help them get crispy in the air fryer. You can also sprinkle them with a pinch of salt if desired.
  5. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  6. Place the potatoes in the air fryer basket. Make sure there’s some space between them for even cooking. If your air fryer is small, you may need to cook the potatoes in batches.
  7. Cook the potatoes for about 35-45 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of the potatoes. Flip them over halfway through the cooking time to ensure even cooking.
  8. You can test the doneness by inserting a fork or knife into the potato. If it slides in easily, your potatoes are done. If not, continue cooking for a few more minutes.
  9. Once the potatoes are done, remove them from the air fryer and let them cool for a couple of minutes before handling.
  10. Slice each potato open, fluff the insides with a fork, and add your favorite toppings. Common choices include butter, sour cream, chives, cheese, bacon bits, or any other toppings you prefer.
  11. Serve your air fryer baked potatoes hot and enjoy!….
