Frequently Asked Questions

Is it faster to cook a potato in the microwave?

Potatoes can cook in the microwave very fast. In as little as 10 minutes, a potato can go from raw to fully cooked. However, because a microwave traps steam, the result will lack crispiness. Also, the microwave can make a potato’s skin seem leathery and tough. The microwave is a great tool to par-cook potatoes that are finished using another cooking method, such as an air fryer, oven, or stovetop.
