Perfectly baked potatoes in your air fryer. Crispy, delicious skin on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, it’s the best way to bake a potato.


  • 4 Russet potatoes – medium sized (10-12oz)
  • 1.5 tbs Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Seasoned salt (such as Lawry’s)


  1. Scrub potatoes clean with a brush under running cold water. Dry and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl or zip-top bag, add olive oil and seasoned salt. Add potatoes and coat well with the oil and seasoned salt.
  3. Preheat air fryer for 5 minutes at 400°(F).
  4. Place potatoes in air fryer basket or tray, set to Air Fry at 400°(F) for 35-45 minutes, turning potatoes halfway through cooking time.
  5. Carefully remove from air fryer, split open and fluff inside with a fork.
  6. Add favorite toppings.


Cook times will vary depending on potato size and air fryer. For smaller potatoes (8oz – 10oz) 35-40 minutes should suffice. Potatoes larger than 12oz may take an additional 5-10 minutes.

Test for doneness by piercing the center with a sharp knife. It should easily penetrate the center of the potato and easily be removed.
