  • that's about right for an average size potato.. or wrapped in a damp paper towel 5-7 mins in a microwave works too. Either way poke some fork holes in them!

  • yes an hour is right. the other night i baked 4 in my toaster oven and it only took 1 hour. i cut some slits on top of them beforehand and they turned out just fine! :)

  • Sounds about right! I depends on the size of the potato! I preheat the oven at 350 and bake for about an hour, then check it. Just poke a fork in it and if it goes in easy its done if not give it another 10 - 15 min and check it again!
