  • 1 air fryer


  • 6 whole Idaho potatoes I like Russets best
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • baked potato toppings: sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon, butter, chives, green onions, etc..


  • Scrub and rinse whole potatoes well with cold water. Dry with clean kitchen towel.
  • Stab each potato 4-5 times with a fork and rub with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and place into air fryer.
  • Cook potatoes in the air fryer at 375 degrees F for 30-45 minutes or until potatoes are completely soft. **Cooking time is dependent on how large or small your potatoes are! Make sure you are using potatoes that are all the same size so they have the same cooking time.
  • Remove from air fryer and cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Enjoy with any desired toppings.
