Air Fryer Baked Potatoes are crisp on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside, making it the best cooking method for a baked potato. Try this recipe and you will always make it this way!

What is an air fryer?
An air fryer is a miniature convection oven. It is a countertop cooking appliance that combines a heating element and a powerful fan to circulate hot air around your food so that it cooks more evenly and efficiently than in a normal oven. Air fryers produce foods that are crispy outside and moist and tender inside.
