The Absolute Best Ways To Reheat Baked Potatoes
By LAUREN ROTHMAN
In The Oven
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, take the potato out of the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature. Pop the potato onto a baking sheet or directly onto the oven rack, taking it out of any foil wrapping, and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the potato is hot.
In Toaster Oven
The reheating process in the toaster oven is the same as in a full-size oven. A melty pat of butter, a cool peak of sour cream, or some crispy crumbled bacon bits are recommended for potato toppings.
In The Air Fryer
Heat the air fryer at 350 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, put the potato inside, and cook until it's heated through, about three to four minutes. The only downside to this method is that an air fryer can only hold so many potatoes, so they have to be reheated in batches.
On The Stovetop
Bring the potatoes to room temperature, cut in half, add oil to a skillet over medium-low, then add the potatoes cut side down. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to low, steam the potatoes for three to four minutes, turn the heat back to medium-low, and turn and shake the potatoes until well-heated and crispy.
In The Microwave
Microwaving is a pretty aggressive form of reheating and can lead to dried-out potatoes. Southern Living suggests cutting the potato in half and covering each side with a damp paper towel before heating for two to three minutes in a microwave-safe dish.
