How Long Does it Take to Cook Baked Potatoes in the Air Fryer?
I like to cook the potatoes for 40 minutes at 390 degrees. Oven baked potatoes usually take about 50-60 minutes. I feel like I am constantly checking in on them and piercing them with a knife or fork to check if they are soft on the inside.
The air fryer cooks at an even pace. It also works well during the summer months because you don’t have to turn on the oven and experience excess heat in your home!
