Getting The Best Air Fryer Jacket Potato

There are a few things I’d do if you’re looking to have the best result with your potatoes. Also, it’s super weird talking about an air fryer baked potato recipe when I’d normally put them in the oven for an hour, comparing that to the time it takes in the Ninja is unreal and I’m saving a fortune!

Make sure you poke your jacket potatoes with a fork so that they can cook all the way through. I also always spray mine with some oil, normally frylight to give them a crisp jacket. You can also put some herbs, salt or pepper on them with the oil so that it sticks.

I wouldn’t put too many in the air fryer either. If you’re looking for the yummiest air fryer baked potatoes then you’ll want to give them space to cook evenly and if you overcrowd them they’ll take longer and might not be done in areas.
