These air fryer baked potatoes have that crispy skin and tender, fluffy inside, and they are the best baked potatoes!
Place your potatoes in the Air Fryer basket, and spray with cooking spray on both sides.
Sprinkle sea salt and garlic on all sides, rotating the potatoes as you got.
Use your hands to rub the potatoes to make sure everything gets evenly coated.
Cook in the Air Fryer on 400 degrees for about 40 to 50 minutes, until fork tender. (Note: I used tongs to rotate mine after about 25 minutes, as they were getting pretty brown on top.)
Don't overcrowd the Air Fryer basket. 4 medium potatoes would probably be my maximum recommendation. You want to make sure that the skin has enough space to crisp up and that the potatoes all lie flat (not stacked on top of each other).
There is no need to pierce with a fork first.
Different sized potatoes can have different cook times. The good news is that you can always put them back in for a few extra minutes.
If you want to try this method with red potatoes or gold potatoes, it will still taste great! Just check them during cooking. They may have a different cook time.
