These quilted bags make potatos cooked in the microwave as fluffy as those baked in a regular oven.

Here are the directions for use:  They are included with each bag.

How to cook the perfect potato in the bag!

The Potato Baking Bag is designed for use in microwaves for preparing any type of baked potato, such as a white, red or sweet potato (yam), and can also be used for Corn on the cob, acorn squash, spaghetti squash, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots & more. Basically, the purpose of this Bag is to provide a more moist and fully cooked potato with a tender outer skin and a fluffy inner flesh.  It holds from two to four potatoes, depending on their size.

Simply wash the potatoes and leave moist. DO NOT PIERCE ANY HOLES IN THE POTATO, and place them in the bag. (To keep the bag clean the potatoes may be wrapped in a paper towel.) cook on high, 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the number & size of the potatoes, and the power of the microwave. Do Not use the “Baked Potato” button. The cooking time for sweet potatoes is about 30 seconds to 1 minute longer than white potatoes. After cooking, simply let the bag air dry. Should the bag need washing, it is MACHINE WASHABLE, no fabric softener or bleach, please.

Corn on the Cob too!

Corn on the cob may also be cooked in the bag. Simply soak the corn (husk on) in cold water for a couple minutes, then trim off the ends and remove some (not all) of the outer husks. Wrap in a paper towel and place in baking bag. For 2 ears, cook 3 to 4 minutes, 4 ears, 4 to 5 minutes, depending on your particular oven. NOTE: The silks come off much easier and cleaner after cooking. Take care to not burn your hands.

Caring for your potato baking bag

Wrapping items in a paper towel prior to cooking will increase the time between washings. But when your bag needs to be washed, here are a few tips to remember:

  • The potato baking bag is machine washable in your home machines, but please do not use fabric softener or bleach as the scent may transfer to your food.
  • After washing the Potato Baking Bag, you may wish to iron it for a neater appearance. You may iron with a dry iron on the Cotton Setting.
