These air fryer baked potatoes will change your life with their crispy skins and hands-off cooking. In summer, they save you from the heat of the oven. In winter, they free up your oven for a tasty main dish while your potatoes cook. Top them with anything you like - but we’re partial to a spud loaded up with sour cream, cheese, scallions, and bacon!

Once you’ve washed the Potatoes (4), make sure they are totally dry. This will give you crispy skin.
Prep the potatoes by piercing the outside with a knife or fork. Drizzle with Olive Oil (1 Tbsp), rub it in, then sprinkle with Sea Salt Flakes (1 Tbsp). Even coverage is key here.
Place the potatoes in the air fryer basket with space in between each one. Set the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and cook for 30-40 minutes. Potatoes are done when the largest one can be easily pierced with a fork.
Cut open and serve with Sour Cream (to taste), Shredded Cheddar Cheese (to taste), Scallions (to taste), Bacon (to taste), and Ground Black Pepper (to taste).
You can use larger potatoes but they will take longer to cook (40-45 minutes), check every 5 minutes until you can pierce the largest one easily with a fork.
