This is the BEST way to make Jacket Potato (aka Baked Potato). I like to air fry baked potato after microwaving it first for a couple of minutes for the crispiest skin and fluffiest potato inside. This easy air fryer recipe has a cooking time of just 15 minutes in total!


3 large potatoes baking

Pinch sea salt

1 teaspoon oil


Wash and scrub 3 large potatoes well under running water.
