Can you put a potato in an air fryer?

Of course! We love air fry baked potatoes and make this air fryer recipe often! Place potatoes in air fryer and cook at 400 degrees for 40-50 minutes (depending on the size of potatoes). Slice potatoes lengthwise; using both hands, pinch each side of the potatoes, forcing them to open up, forcing the inside of the potato up.

What can you air fry?

You can cook all sorts of things in an air fryer. Using less than a tablespoon of oil or a couple of sprays of canola cooking spray, you can fry beef, chicken, fish, frozen food, and vegetables. Cooking frozen food in the air fryer is very efficient and they are super crispy and taste delicious.
