This Air Fryer Baked Potatoes recipe is a delicious and simple way to make perfect fluffy soft baked potatoes with crispy skins every time.


  • 4 medium russet potatoes
  • Vegetable oil
  • Coarse sea salt


  1. Wash the potatoes and dry real well.  Prick the skin with a fork. Rub vegetable oil over the potatoes.  Generously sprinkle with sea salt.
  2. Preheat air fryer for 10 minutes.  Place the prepared potatoes in the basket. Cook at 390 degrees for 30-45 minutes.


  • Russet potatoes work best for this recipe.  Choose medium to small potatoes so that you have enough room for several potatoes.
  • For best results use vegetable or canola oil.  Olive oil has too low of a smoking point to use for this recipe.
  • Use kosher or sea salt and sprinkle generously.
  • Air fryers cook at varying levels of heat and intensity hence the wide variation on cooking time.  They are done when they are fork tender.
