Ninja Foodi Baked Potato

I have had the Ninja Foodi for a few years now. In fact, we bought our first Ninja Foodi when we lived in The Algarve, and that feels like a lifetime ago now.

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.

Today I will be sharing with you how to cook the ninja foodi baked potato, getting that amazing crispy skin, why I recommend the ninja foodi for baked potatoes, how to cook potatoes in the ninja foodi and so much more.

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!

Jacket Potato In Ninja Foodi

Now this is something that confuses people that live on the other side of the Atlantic to us.

Here in the UK, we would say jacket potato in ninja foodi, or ninja foodi jacket potatoes.

Verses in the USA where it is a baked potato in ninja foodi.

So, if I mention jacket potato ninja, you know what I am talking about.

Jacket Potato In Ninja Foodi 15 In 1

I admit I often have to Google what a Ninja Foodi 15 in 1 is or check it out on Amazon. That is because I would just say jacket potato in Ninja Foodi not 15 in 1.

That is because now Ninja has so many models and they are bringing out newer and newer ones each year. I now know that ours is the 9 in 1, and that the 15 in 1 does a lot more stuff.

But for making a ninja foodi jacket potato any of these different ninja foodi models will do a great job.

Baked Potato Ninja Foodi Ingredients

Potatoes – Lets start with the potatoes as these are the star ingredient for our delicious baked potato ninja foodi recipe.

Butter – I don’t know how anyone can have a ninja jacket potato without butter. Though margarine or a similar delicious alternative will also work well.

Oil – Adding oil to the skin of the ninja jacket potatoes is what you need to make them crispy before air frying. I have a bottle of extra virgin olive oil in my kitchen as well as an extra virgin olive oil spray for easy use.

Toppings – Then of course its personal choice with what toppings you would like on your ninja baked potato. I love cheese, coleslaw, Bolognese, baked beans or a mix of leftovers.

Can You Recommend A Ninja Foodi?

I often get asked which kitchen gadgets I recommend and which one I use. For the Ninja Foodi we have this one. It doesn’t have as many bells and whistles compared to some of the newer models, but it does a great job.

We can dehydrate, air fry, pressure cook, sauté, slow cook, make yoghurt and so much more.

Plus, we recommend you head over to our ninja foodi recipes category as we have been using the Ninja Foodi since 2020 and just love it for simplicity, how delicious the recipes are when cooked in it and how much time it saves us in the kitchen. We even take the Ninja Foodi on holiday with us.

How To Cook Jacket Potatoes In Ninja Foodi?

ninja-foodi-baked-potatoes-step-by-step
  • Prepare. Pour a cup and a half of water (360ml) into the bottom of your Ninja Foodi. Then fork the potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Then add a trivet followed by adding the potatoes to the trivet. Place the lid on the ninja foodi, set the valve to sealing and pressure cook for 20 minutes on pressure cooker function.
  • Release. When the pressure cooker beeps, do a quick pressure release, then remove the lid and move the potatoes using the handles of the trivet and then remove the water from the bottom of the cooking pot. 
  • Crisp.  Next place the potatoes (still on their trivet) back into the cooking pot and then slice the potatoes lengthways to open them up and then give them a good spray with olive oil as you want that crispy skin. Then air fry for 10 minutes at 200c/400f on the air fryer function.
  • Serve. Transfer your ninja baked potatoes to plates and add your favourite toppings.

You now have baked potatoes in ninja foodi ready to serve for dinner.

How Long To Cook Baked Potatoes In Ninja Foodi?

For baked potatoes in the ninja foodi I love to pressure cook for 20 minutes to soften the potatoes. This is then followed up with 10 minutes air frying at 200c/400f for crisping the skin.

Though, when you think about it baked potatoes ninja foodi are still somewhat quicker than the oven.

Variations. You can use any baked potato toppings. I go with something I can use to clear out the fridge or pantry, or something that is easy to add.
Oil. The oil is important as it makes your baked potato skin wonderfully crispy.

    You cannot beat baked potatoes and i could fit enough in to feed the whole family 5 of us over here and they were all cooked and crispy good stuff.

  3. Hate this device. Forever messing about swapping lids, building up pressure, reducing pressure, putting water in, taking it out, swap the lid again. Just put a spud in the oven with oil on and hey presto. Cooked. No messing about with this ninja rubbish.

    • I got the 15-in-1 which is fantastic, with everything built-in. There’s no swapping lids, just sliding the lever to the left for pressure cooking, then right for air frying, or the middle position for combination steam-airfry etc.

      If I had the same model as yours I know I would also rather just put the spuds in the oven like I used to BN (Before Ninja).

    • Hi Ian,

      This will depend on the size of your potatoes. We do not give an exact weight as potatoes are generally different in size and shape and sometimes you can fit more in than we did and sometimes you can fit less in. The recipe is how our potatoes turned out and no ours were not hard in the middle, so just an extra minute or 2 and yours would have been fine 🙂

  6. Can you do the potatoes first in a crockpot pressure cooker and then use bog standard air fryer? I do not have a ninja. Thanks in advance

    Reply
    • Hi Marlene,

      You could check 10 minutes from the end to try and see but generally the potato should take the same time to cook as 4 potatoes 🙂

      Reply
  7. are you cutting all the way through the potato when you cut it after pressure cooking or are you just putting a slice along the top to be able to cut through it later?

  8. Good morning to you
    Please can you tell me which one of your books is best suited for my
    Ninja foodie max 9in1 please
    Many thanks ray

    • Hi Ray,

      We have found the Ninja air fryer function works just as well as a normal air fryer with a basket, so the cooking times will not need to be adjusted too much, just make sure the food is properly cooked and too your liking. If you want a book now then book 1 but if you want to wait then book2 but both books would work with your Ninja Foodi Max 9 in 1, we have that gadget as well and love what it can do 🙂
