You'll need to clean your potato first, especially if you like to eat your baked potato with the skin on. With a fork, stab your potato all over: this helps the steam escape during the heating process to prevent a potato explosion inside your microwave, and helps the potato take on a fluffier texture when cooked. We like a traditional russet potato for our baked potato, but you can really give any tuber variation this same treatment—depending on the size and density of your potato, cooking times will vary. Of course, if you still want to actually bake your baked potato in an oven, we've got you covered there too. Leave us a rating and maybe a picture of your \"baked\" potato too!
