Ryan B says:

I'm sure that is very carcinogenic with "acrylamides" and heterocyclic amines due to the extremely high temps. Lower the temp and increase the cooking time or just use a combi oven with both steam and convection.

De Thompson says:

Jaye says:

So much electricity wasted for 4 potato and just half a meal for fat lady. we need to use smaller oven for this so less electricity wasted. I think we need supersteam oven for baked potato.

I put my taytoes in a 400 degree oven for 1 hr tight on the oven rack and they come out just like this without all the nonsense. Crispy skin and fluffy inside. Just scrub with a vegetable brush and poke holes in and shove in. I cut my potato in half and and squeeze out the potato. Then put butter and salt on. Good eats.
