Baked Potato with Sour Cream and Chives taste magnificent

Baked Potato

Baked potatoes are a favourite of mine. Add a dollop of sour cream or butter and a few chives, and you have a yummy accompaniment to your main dish. Great with a steak, and some vegetables. Baked potatoes cooked in an air fryer will have a crisp skin and a nice fluffy potato interior.

    This did not work for me. My potatoes were only just starting to cook but we’re not even squeezable yet. I punctured mine with a knife as I do with the oven – did you?

      Hi Lacey, that’s strange. Do you have a philips air fryer or a different brand? Did you preheat first? Also, did you use small to medium potatoes?.

      I used medium potatoes, preheated the air fryer to 200 degrees Celsius and cooked for 25 minutes. From memory I didn’t prick the potatoes either.

    Are you sure that you did not by accident cook them at 200 degrees Fahrenheit?

      Hi Dana, My airfryer is only in Celcius so no, but when I go shopping next I’ll get some more potatoes and give it another attempt and will update here.

    Gleff…I think Dana was addressing Lacey. Maybe Lacey’s potatoes were way undercooked because she misread your directions and used 200 Fahrenheit rather than 200 Celsius, which is 390 Fahrenheit.

    I cannot find a grill to put in the basket for meat is it okay to just lay them int he basket. I have searced every where for one that is for a power air fryer 3.4.

      Hi Valerie,

      I don’t see why not. I’m not an expert about cross contamination but I would assume the heat would take care of that. I’ve cooked meats in my basket without any grill and they’ve been fine.

    Quartering potatoes will greatly decrease cook time in the air fryer if in a hurry…12 minutes or less.

    I have cooked them in the microwave for a few minutes and then transferred to the air fryer.

    Alaska_Dave here -Just cooked frozen crinkle cut fries turned out great using PHILIPS I would say just watch your cooking times as this cooked very fast

    I found that pre cuting potatoes, and then rinsing well ,2minutes in Micro wave, then into preheated air fryer for about 17 minutes at 400 ` works best, smaller sizes cook faster
