Ive never had success with microwaving my potatoes. They would always come out hard in the middle or over cooked(smoked up). What do you do to cook em well in there??

The best way to cook them more even is to poke a bunch of holes in there with a fork, and coat the skin with a little butter keeps moisture on the skin. Thats my method and works fine to my liking.

The larger the potato the longer you will need. I find 6 min will do the biggest potato. Put some holes in the potato with a nife or fork and toss in the microwave for half the time and then turn it over and finsh for the other half.

i chop the potato up into bite size peices and chuck them into a microwaveable container with a lid, put a tiny bit of water in the bottom, put the lid on and nuke it for 6-8 min or maybe more if u like, this is also a easy way to cook vegys, maybe cook the potato abit more before u chuck the vegys in......... works well

Thanks guys
Your suggestion have made a big difference.
Now when I get home I just toss a steak on the grill, throw the potatoe in the the micro and in 10 minutes im having a feast.
Thanks again, Cardi.

After I nuke mine I like to wrap it in some tinfoil for about 5min.
Not sure what this actually does, but have always done that and figured "If it aint broke, dont fix it"

lol... supposed to wrap it in tinfoil when ya throw it in the oven. 😀 Keeps the moisture in. Don't see what it'll do *after* it's cooked in the micro though.. but hey, as you said.. if it ain't broke, don't fix it. 🙂

Poke the potato several times with a fork, put it in a plastic
grocery bag, fold it over and place the potato on the folded part. Set the timer for 5 minutes per potato. The moisture of the potato will stay in the bag. Be very careful when pulling the potato. You don't want to be burned by the steam escaping the bag.

You may have to zap it for a little longer depending on your microwaves power, size, and age.
