  • ISO baked potato "sleeve" for microwave

    Years ago on this site someone posted instructions for making a "baked potato sleeve" to bake potatoes in the microwave.  Does this ring a bell with anyone?  I've done a search but to no avail.....couldn't find the post.  Any ideas????????????

    The 1 I made was a flannel lined cotton bag.  I don't like it for baking potatoes but I do like it for 'freshening' bread or heating pocket bread, etc.  I'm sure if you go to google, bing or ask.com   you'll probably find a pattern & suggestions for the correct fabric to use.  Maybe that's why mine doesn't work so well.  I can't see much of a difference between a potato cooked in the microwave or 1 cooked in the bag.

    My sister gave me one for christmas as a stocking stuffer. When I first saw it, I thought it was a pot holder.  There is a tag on it  calling it a Baked Potato Bag.  It says to wash and dry 1-4 medium sized potatoes.  Do not prick.  Microwave for 4-8 minutes in bag.  Use a fork to open potato so it will be fluffy.  Let the bag air dry.  Also great for corn on the cob with the husks off and also tortillas.  The web address is wakedistributors@shaw.ca

    The bag is 100% cotton and made by Loraine Wake in Brentwood Bay, B.C. Canada.

    My mom gave me a Baked Potato Bag for the microwave that she got a one of those trade shows with many products. The lady demonstrating it said it did more than just bake potatoes- but I never found out more. It has a cloth outside with a silver colored cloth inside. I'll check out that website.

    I saw potato bags for sale at a craft fair before Christmas. I hadn't seen one before that. The friend who went to the fair with me said she wraps a wet paper towel around the baked potato and it does the same job. I didn't try it, but wonder if anyone else has?

    I don't even do that!

     I prick em' a little bit, throw em' in the microwave, cover, and press baked potatoes.   They're delicious.  I've heard people say baking them in the oven makes them taste better.  They taste exactly the same to me. The only difference is waiting an hour or waiting a few minutes for dinner.    Smile

    The oven gives them a nice crispy skin - my favorite part!!!
