Ninja Foodi Baked Potato. Today, we are going to show you how to cook the best ever baked potato in the ninja foodi. From perfectly tender potatoes to a crispy skin to comforting fillings, we have it covered!
Baked Potato In Ninja Foodi
I have had the Ninja Foodi as my newest kitchen gadget in the Milner kitchen since last summer.
Many people ask me why I want the Ninja Foodi when I already have lots of air fryers and instant pots.
I always respond by telling them that I love the fact that the Ninja Foodi can do both.
You have the ninja foodi air fryer, and you have the ninja foodi pressure cooker.
At first it was a backup so that I could have another air fryer or pressure cooker running in my kitchen. That way I could cook meat in my air fryer and vegetables in another.
But what I soon realised was that the Ninja Foodi was AMAZING for pressure cooking and then air frying. You could take recipes where you would use a bit of both and then do the whole thing in the Ninja Foodi.
Such as baked potatoes.
You want pressure cooker baked potatoes because of how fluffy the potatoes are, but you want a crispy skin too that the air fryer brings you.
And that is why I am now obsessed with the Ninja Foodi and love mix and matching its uses over mealtimes.
Can You Make Baked Potatoes In The Ninja Foodi?
Yes you can. The Ninja Foodi is ideal for baked potatoes because (like I have mentioned above) you can use the pressure cooker first, then finish with the air fryer lid.
Or you can just use the ninja foodi air fryer, or just use the ninja foodi pressure cooker.
The choice is yours.
Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Baked Potatoes
Previously, we showed you how to cook instant pot baked potatoes. The idea is that you pressure cook your potatoes for 30 minutes and you have perfect potatoes, that are begging to be loaded with your favourite toppings and served straight away.
This is my lazy, quick family dinner, go to recipe.
Just grab some potatoes from your pantry, throw a topping together and you are done.
If you want Ninja Foodi pressure cooker baked potatoes, you do the exact same thing.
Ninja Foodi Air Fryer Baked Potatoes
When we make Ninja Foodi Air Fryer baked potatoes I follow the exact same system as our air fryer baked potatoes, just add 5 more minutes as the air fryer crisp lid is a little slower.
If you just want a quick air fryer option for baked potatoes, then I recommend you do the same.
But what if you want to combine the two? What if you would like the best of both worlds?
Well, you would:
- Cook Ninja Pressure Cooker Potatoes (for 20 minutes)
- Cook Ninja Air Fryer Potatoes (for 10 minutes)
It’s the same total cook time as just pressure cooking and thanks to the Ninja you have crispy skin too!

Ninja Foodi Baked Potato Toppings
What are your favourite baked potato toppings? I have so many that as long as butter and cheese are available then I am happy.
I will usually look in the pantry and the fridge and see what ingredients we have that need using up and use those first.
Last time I made baked potatoes I found some leftover casserole in the fridge, heated it up with cheese and served it on top of the potatoes.
Another time I spotted some eggs and added some mayonnaise and cheese and I had egg mayo.
Ninja Foodi Baked Potato
- Place a cup and a half of water (360ml) into the Ninja Foodi cooking pot and add the trivet. Fork the potatoes, season with salt and pepper and load onto the trivet. Place the lid on the Ninja Foodi, set the valve to sealing and cook for 20 minutes on pressure cook.
- Release the pressure, drain the water, and slice your potatoes lengthways. Spray your potatoes with extra virgin olive oil.
- Place down the air fryer lid and air fry for 10 minutes at 200c/400f.
- Serve with your favourite baked potato toppings.
