  • Optimum Healthy Fry Air Fryer
  • Measuring spoons
  • Pastry brush


  • 600 grams Baking Potato I used 2 x 300 g Maris Piper Potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt

To Serve

  • 100 g cheddar cheese grated
  • 20 g butter
  • 12 cherry tomatoes


  • Preheat the Optimum HealthyFry Airfryer at 60C for 3 minutes
  • Pierce the potatoes with a knife, then using a pastry brush, brush the potatoes with oil and sprinkle with salt.
  • Set the heat to 195C
  • Set the time for 50 minutes, then close the HealthyFry and leave to bake
  • Check with a sharp knife to make sure the potatoes are baked all the way through, if not set for another 10 minutes and bake again.
  • Once ready, place each potato on a plate, cut it open and squeeze the fluffy potato to the top.
  • Top each potato with a pat of butter and heap the grated cheese on top.
  • Serve each potato with 6 cherry tomatoes.


Smaller potatoes will take less time to bake, you can easily open the drawer of the HealthyFry to check how they are doing.
Larger potatoes will take longer to bake. 
Baking fewer or more potatoes will not make any difference to the baking time. I could easily fit three 300g potatoes in the HealthyFry. 
You can, of course, eat the baked potato as a side dish or use other toppings of your choice.
