How do I microbake potatoes?

Choose uniform sized, regularly shaped potatoes. Wash, dry and pierce skins. Place potato(es) on paper towel or microwave rack in the centre of oven. For 2 or more potatoes, arrange like spokes of a wheel with the small ends towards the centre. Cook on High (100%) for:

4-6 minutes* - 1 potato
6-8 minutes* - 2 potatoes
8-12 minutes* - 3 potatoes

For even cooking, turn potatoes half way through cooking. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Test for doneness.

* Times were tested in a 700 watt microwave oven. Check your manual for suggested cooking times.
