Easy Air Fryer Baked Potatoes

There are so many ways to make potatoes and a nice baked potato is one of my favorites. Now, there are several ways to bake potatoes. In the oven or microwave, some people use their instant pot to make baked potatoes, although I've never tried the instant pot.

Easy air fryer baked potatoes

Well, I've found another method to make baked potatoes, and it is now my go-to favorite. Try baked potatoes in your air fryer.

These air fryer baked potatoes are soft and tender on the inside with a wonderful crispy skin on the outside. The crispy outside is what sold me on using the air fryer. Baking them in the oven or microwave just doesn't turn the skin crispy.

Benefits of using the Air Fryer:

  • Air fryers use less energy than your oven does.
  • Your oven can heat up the whole house. If you live in a warmer climate then using the air fryer is a plus.
  • The oven will not give you that crispy skin.
I recently made some delicious pork chops and severed them with these air fryer baked potatoes. You can find the recipe for the pork chops here: Cast Iron Skillet Garlic Butter Pork Chops.


How to make Air Fryer Baked Potatoes:

  • Wash the potatoes and pat them dry.
  • Brush them with olive oil and add salt all around.
  • Poke holes around the potatoes with a fork
  • Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • Air Fry for 40 to 50 minutes until the inside is tender.
  • Turn the potatoes over halfway through.
It may take a little longer depending on the air fryer and the size of the potatoes. I only did two potatoes but my air fryer basket would have fit four nice size potatoes easily.

Cut them open and add your favorite toppings such as butter, sour cream, chives, or whatever you like on your baked potato. The air fryer that we have is the Ninja Foodi Grill and Air Fryer. We use it often to grill and air fry, it's perfect for the two of us.

  1. Wow! What a great discovery!!! I have never heard of anyone cooking baked potatoes in an air fryer. My husband would love those crispy skins. You really have developed some wonderful skills and recipes with that air fryer. Simply Fabulous, Sam!

  2. How interesting. Just last night my daughter and I had a long phone conversation and I learned she is now the happy owner of an air fryer. She is very excited and happy with the results of the foods she's fixed in hers and we were actually talking about various ways to fix potatoes in the air fryer. I will most definitely send her this recipe for easy air fryer baked potatoes, along with the one for homemade French fries. Your name was part of our conversation several times, Sam, all about the foods you've fixed in your air fryer. :) I used you for my expert resource about air fryers! LOL.

  3. Sam, these baked potatoes sound wonderful. I love using my air fryer and find myself always looking for new recipes to use in it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  4. What a delicious, easy and innovative way to prepare potatoes, Sam! I love a good, crisp crust. I have been substituting other, lower carb vegetables (rutabaga, jicama or radishes) for potatoes in recent years and bet they could be cooked in the air fryer rather than roasting them, as I have been doing.

  5. Sam, with all the articles I've read on air-fryer recipes, this one included, I'm beginning to see one in our future!

  6. I love baked potatoes but I have never tried making them in the air fryer. Thanks, Sam for showing the way!

  7. Sounds really good!

  8. We love baked potatoes. I have not heard of baking them in an air fryer before and it looks and sounds like they they turn out delicious! Thank you for your recipe and recommendation.

  9. The oven on our new stove is also an air fryer. I guess I should figure out how to use it, LOL.
