Method

  1. Heat the air fryer to 200°C. Pierce each potato a few times with the end of a knife, then rub all over with the oil.
  2. Put the potatoes in the air fryer and sprinkle with salt flakes. Cook for 30-35 minutes, turning halfway, until deeply crisp all over and fluffy in the centre. Cut them open, fluff up the flesh a little, then season with more salt and add a knob of butter. Eat as is or top with anything you like.

  1. Make baked potatoes even quicker by giving them a 10-minute blast in the microwave – then just finish them in the air fryer for a final 10-15 minutes to crisp up the skin.
