Description:
I have a 900 watt microwave, and when i put a baked potato in for 5 minutes, one side is hard, while the other is fine. I flip it over, and put it in for another minute,and the same happens to both sides. Im getting a hard area that i have to cut off. Can i have some tips someone?

    Wash it well, poke holes in it with a fork, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, microwave it for three minutes, turn the potato over, microwave it three more minutes or until a tooth pick can be easily inserted.Wash the potato and pierce it several times with a knife or fork. Microwave it on high for about 7 minutes. (It depends on the size of the potato) Take it out and immediately wrap it in foil and leave it for at least 20 minutes or until it's cool enough to handle. It always works for me!

    Just cut one long slice on the top and then 2 diagonal ones over it and put it in the microwave for 3-5 minutes depending on the size. Just make sure you watch it so you dont burn it. I make mine in there all the timepoke holes into it, put it on a plate, and micro it for a few minutes.

    Well there is something that i do sometimes when i don't feel like boiling a potato. Put the potato in a regular plastic grocery bag and tie the knot. Now microwave it for 5-6 minutes and you will have a potato cooked through. It sounds crazy but it works.Yes, poke it with holes then cook it on HIGH for about 5-7 minutes. Remove carefully with oven mitts or a kitchen towel. Wrap in aluminum foil for another 5 min. It should be done by then because it steams in the foil. One of the other posters stated that they put their potato in a regular supermarket plastic bag. I personally wouldn't recommend this as toxins are released from most plastics when exposed to extreme heat. Toxins + Food = Bad Idea (just my two cents). If you want to steam something in the microwave, you could always buy glass or plastic cooking equipment designed specifically for steaming foods in the microwave.

    I actually don't like potatoes baked in the microwave. The ends can easily get overcooked, resulting in a kind of cardboard texture that's lava hot. I use just the conventional oven. But, in the past I have done a kind of hybrid, where I cook the potato on high (as everyone else has suggested with the fork holes, etc.) for a few minutes and then finish it up in a conventional oven at about 400 for a half hour (wrapped in foil). This prevents the overcooked ends and it cooks a lot more evenly.if it is a big potato & your microwave is low powered....wash it....jab it all over with a fork...put it into the microwave for about 5 mins....take it out...turn it over....and do another 5 mins...then it should be done. if not...put it back & do a couple of minutes at a time until the centre is soft. i then brush it wil olive oil & put it into a hot oven to brown it off & make it crispy skinned.

    stick them in the microwave for a couple of minutesthrow them in the microwave, they get done in less than 10 minutes. BTW...did you prick them numerous times with a fork and then wrap them in foil? OR...did you forget to turn the oven on?!?!? Just asking....people do do that!!! LOL

    When I make baked potatoes I put them in aluminumn foil and poke holes through the foil and potatoes and it helps cook the inside faster.Depends on the size of the potato. Skewer them with a metal skewer (all the way through) and it will help them to cook faster. Maybe you have a slow oven?

    I make them regularly, they're as good as campfire potatoes and quick and easy while cooking dinner. For me the perfect time is 8 minutes depending on your microwave. Make sure you prick them with a fork. Cheers.Well you should never microwave a potatoes because you just don't. It's cruel and unjust. Secondly to make baked potatoes you need to actually bake. What your going to make is called microwave potatoes. PS. it is not the same thing.

    Microwaved potato is a poor excuse for a crispy baked , however for a 10 ounce potato, about 9 minutes on high then wrap tightly with foil and let sit for 10 min. (Russet)about 10 mins or so but its not the same as an oven

    5-10 min depending on the size of your potato and the wattage of your microwave.. Scrub it well and pierce it well along the top of the potate so it will not blow up in your microwave. smoosh it open and put butter, salt, pepper and I know it sounds weird but Bacon Ranch salad dressing numm numm

    Yes, you can. Start with 5 minutes.take em out, punch a whole in them with a knife, put them in the microwave for 4 mins. pull em out check em and if still not done put them back in for another 4 min. don't cover them with anything, just poke a hole in them.

    You can do whatever you want, Miss Kitty! Forget the saran wrap, just pierce with a fork and place in microwave for a couple of minutes at full power. Squeeze to see when done.You bet. I don't recommend cooking anything in plastics /saran wrap in the microwave.. there's research that this may cause considerable carcinogens. Just put the potatoes on a plate or in a bowl and make sure that there are some perforations/slicemark(s) (top one will be enough) on the potatoes to let out excess pressure. I cook mine completely in the microwave.. much quicker that the oven.. In my small micro, a small potato cooks at 6-8 min high I think.

    This link says 3 minutes, which sounds about right to me.If you do choose to cook a potato in the microwave, be sure to poke holes in it because it will explode if you don't. I like to place them in a bowl covered with saran wrap and cook 3-5 minutes depending on size. I like the steam approach compared to other methods.

    1 minutewash, dry and stick a knife through potato so it doesn't explode. my microwave and i believe all microwaves have a setting that says baked potato. always comes out perfect.

    You first have to use a fork and poke holes in the potatoes, so that when they microwave it brings moisture to them,and then microwave 5-15 minutes or when they look dry. Then take them out cut a slit down the middle then use a spoon to dig it out. If the potatoe comes out then of course its done. If not then you have to microwave them somemore.
