Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to bake a potato?

The time it takes to bake a potato depends on a few factors, primarily the type of cooking method and the size of the potato.  Therefore, it’s better to gauge doneness by the internal temperature of 205 F. A meat thermometer or probe thermometer works great for this.  On average in an oven a 5-7-ounce potato will take about 30-40 minutes.
