Easy Air Fryer Baked Potatoes

Easy Air Fryer Baked Potatoes The inside of these simple air fryer baked potatoes is soft and fluffy, with a delectably crispy exterior!

I really do enjoy using my air fryer, especially to make these delicious jacket potatoes.

Perfectly cooked, they have the crispiest crispy skin—even crispier than potatoes fried in the oven! You won’t ever want to make baked potatoes in the oven again after using an air fryer!


  • To guarantee the fluffiest middle, it’s crucial to use baking potatoes for this recipe.
  • Avoid packing the air fryer basket too full. To guarantee crispy skin, leave room around each potato. In my air fryer, I can put three medium-sized potatoes (or two giant ones), but you might only be able to cook two medium-sized baking potatoes if your air fryer is smaller.
  • When potatoes are rotated midway during cooking, the skin crisps up uniformly on all sides. They will be quite hot, so use tongs!
  • It’s recommended to let the potatoes cool in the air fryer basket for five minutes before serving.




  • Replace the fry light spray with avocado or olive oil.
  • For extra flavour, before air-frying the skins, sprinkle over some garlic powder, smoked paprika, or even chilli powder.
  • For appetisers or finger buffets, prepare small baked potatoes using an air fryer. Cut the cooking time in half and use tiny potatoes instead of baking potatoes.



Storage Store: Baked potatoes from an air fryer can be refrigerated and reheated for up to three days (recipes follow!).


The baked potatoes can be reheated in the air fryer until they are hot again, or they can be microwaved until they are extremely hot in a dish that can fit in the microwave. I like to eat these straight out of the air fryer because you lose some of the skin’s crispiness when you microwave them.


  1. Two potatoes in the oven I like to use a baking potato that is medium in size.
  2. Use one teaspoon of Fry Light, or One tsp olive oil
  3. One tsp sea salt


  1. Set your air fryer’s temperature to 200°C (400°F).
  2. Wash, wipe, and pat the baking potatoes dry.

  3. Mist 2 or 3 sprays of fry light on the outside of each of the potatoes and rub in with your hands to coat each potato evenly. As an alternative, use olive oil.
    1 teaspoon Fry Light
  4. Place the potatoes in your air fryer basket and sprinkle with sea salt.
    1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  5. Bake potatoes for 40–45 minutes for medium-sized potatoes and 45–50 minutes for large potatoes, or until a sharp knife can easily pierce the middle of the potato. If you can, turn the food with tongs halfway through cooking.
