  • 1 large potato choose a nice fluffy variety like Idaho, Russet, King Edward or Maris Piper
  • 1/2 tsp salted butter
  • Lots of toppings


  • Scrub the potato and prick with a fork to pierce the skin. Rub the salted butter over the potato. 
  • Place potato in microwave for 5 minutes. When it is finished, check that the potato feels quite soft now, if it is still hard, turn it over and microwave for another 5 minutes. 
  • Remove potato from microwave (carefully – it will be hot!). 
  • Place potato in air fryer basket, and air fry at 390°F (200°C) for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Enjoy with your favorite toppings. Try butter, shredded cheese (cheddar or jack), chili and sour cream, tuna and mayo, or pulled pork
