About baked potatoesEdit

A baked potato, or jacket potato, is a potato which has been washed, typically wrapped in foil and baked whole in the oven, just with the skin on. When well cooked, then a baked potato has a fluffy interior and a crispy skin. It may be served with fillings and condiments such as butter, sour cream, yogurt or cheese.

Potatoes can be baked in a convection oven, a microwave oven, on a barbecue grill, or on or in an open fire. Some restaurants use special ovens designed specifically to cook the large numbers of potatoes, then keep them warm and ready for service.
