  • Air fryer



  • Gently poke holes into the potatoes all over the skin, using a fork.
  • Rub the outsides of the potatoes with the oil, then sprinkle the salt & pepper over them to season.
  • Place the potatoes into the bottom of your air fryer basket.
  • Cook at 390 F for 35-40 minutes.
  • Enjoy!



Cooking times will vary depending on the size of the potato, you may need to add more time for larger sized potatoes. You can test the doneness of the potato by inserting a knife or fork into the potato.

Tips for cooking baked potatoes in the air fryer:

  • Whether you have 1,2,3 or 4 potatoes, you do not need to adjust the cook time! However, if the potatoes are quite large, you may need to add time to ensure that they cook through completely.
  • Always use a fork to poke a few holes in your potato so that steam can escape while cooking.
  • I try to flip the potatoes 1 time during cooking. You don’t need to flip more than that.
Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
