You might think that baking a potato in an air fryer doesn’t make sense, but it’s actually a great way to enjoy all the goodness of a crispy-skinned baked potato without the excess grease and oil from deep frying. It’s not only convenient, but it also results in one of the tastiest baked potatoes I’ve ever had!

I used to make baked potatoes in the instant pot, but I always missed the satisfying crunch of the potato skin. However, once I tried making them in the air fryer, I never went back.

What You’ll Need
