Tips for the Air Fryer Baked Potatoes

There are numerous perks to making baked potatoes in the air fryer as opposed to the oven. This method saves time without sacrificing flavor or texture. Not only that, but you may actually end up with crispier skins while using less oil.

The steps for air frying baked potatoes are almost identical to baking them in the oven — except you don't need to pierce holes into them before cooking, and they'll be done in about half the time.

Choosing uniform-sized potatoes and leaving plenty of room in between them for optimal airflow will ensure that they cook through evenly.

Tips for the Air Fryer Baked Potatoes

Heed these tips and tricks for the best air fryer baked potatoes.

  • Use russet, Idaho, or sweet potatoes. These have a thicker skin and a light, mealy texture thanks to their high-starch content.
  • Use similarly sized potatoes to ensure they're done at the same time.
  • Rely on the fork test to determine whether they're done. Cook times can vary significantly based on the air fryer model, as well as the size and number of potatoes.
  • Use a cooking oil with a high smoke point, like olive oil, avocado oil, or canola oil. Low-smoke-point oils like coconut oil may burn.
    Tips for the Air Fryer Baked Potatoes
  • Don't overcrowd the basket. Leaving some room between the potatoes allows the hot air to cook them evenly on all sides. A standard 7-quart capacity air fryer will fit a maximum of four potatoes.
  • If you're using especially big potatoes (larger than 8 ounces), or air frying more than four potatoes in a larger capacity air fryer, you may need to add up to 10-15 minutes to the cooking time.
  • Always use tongs or an oven mitt to remove the potatoes from the air fryer basket as they will be very hot.
  • If you don't like crispy skin, skip the oil and wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil before placing them in the air fryer. (Yes, you can put foil in an air fryer.)
