Potato baker bags......... Tue, 07/13/10 6:53 AM (permalink)
For those who have never tried this, it is just a cloth bag you put in the microwave. Scrub potatoes, do NOT pierce them, place in  bag and microwave. They come out beautiful...wonderfully fluffly inside, and the skins are perfectly done.(They are not crunchy like when done in an oven, nor soggy when just tossed in the microwave). This is the ONLY way we do baked potatoes anymore. The cheapest ones can be found here....

    I made myself one of these as I have lots of cotton fabric and batting lying around in my sewing room. And they do as you said, fluffy potato and perfect skins. That is a good price, but just wrapping up a baking potato in a folded cotton kitchen towel would probably work just as well.

      My Mom got me one at a craft show. They do work well but I agree that a folded kitchen towel would work just as well albeit not near the conversation piece. I keep mine here at work, at home I'm usually preparing more than one potato.

        First saw these at a Craft Show in Louisiana.... they are awesome and they do come in sizes big enough to do three or four good sized Bakers at one time- also great for corn on the cob......

            You're supposed to wash them, but not dry them, and you need to make sure they don't touch.
