A baked potato is a vegetable prepared for eating, usually at the dinner meal. When well cooked, a baked potato has a fluffy interior and a crisp skin. Baked potatoes can be served with toppings such as butter, cheese, sour cream, and chives. Potatoes can be cooked many ways including in a conventional oven, a convection oven, or a microwave oven. Many restaurants use special ovens designed specifically to cook scores of potatoes. And can also have them ready for service by keeping them warm.
Before cooking the potato, it should be cleaned thoroughly, scrubbed and dried. Remove the eyes and any blemishes. The potato can be basted with oil, butter and salt. Piercing the potato with a fork or knife allows the steam to escape during the heating process. Potatoes cooked without pricking the skin can cause the potato to split open. Internal pressure causes the potatoes to built up internal pressure from steam. Unvented potatoes may break or crack. It takes about one hour to bake a large potato in an oven. Microwaving takes from six to twelve minutes, depending on oven power and potato size. Microwaving does not produce a crisp skin.
