Baked Potatoes In The Air Fryer
Baked potatoes are great because they go with just about any main dish. They are also easy, nutritious and versatile.
Make a batch of baked potatoes and each family member can have a different version depending on the toppings they choose. I am a bit traditional with shredded cheese, sour cream, bacon and parsley. My daughter loves nacho cheese and sour cream on her baked potatoes.
I have always microwaved my potatoes before owning an air fryer. But now I use my air fryer because it is easy and creates the tastiest potatoes.
Can You Put A Potato In The Air Fryer
Well yes. Be sure to prick the potatoes with a fork just as you would before microwaving or baking in the oven. This is to prevent the potatoes form exploding…at least that is the theory. I personally have never tested this theory because it didn’t seem worth the risk of cleaning up an exploded potato 🤣
How Long Do You Cook A Potato In An Air Fryer
This one takes a bit longer than most air fryer recipes. We are air frying or potatoes at 400ºF for 35-45 minutes.

I own both of these air fryers and both work for baked potatoes. Each air fryer will cook a bit differently. That is why most of my air fryer recipes have a small time range for cooking.
