Microwave Baked Potato Cooker Pouches

While the idea seems a bit silly on its surface, these microwave potato pouches really do make it easy to “bake” potatoes quickly. Four minutes in the microwave, turn the potatoes over, another four minutes, and you’ve got a nicely cooked potato ready to eat. You won’t have the crispy potato skin like you’d get from an oven-baked potato, but you sure can’t beat the convenience.

A two-pack is $10 on Amazon. Amazon is also full of similar products, all of which are essentially copycats of the original Potato Express (which I would’ve linked for this post, except I keep reading that they’re using thinner, cheaper materials than they used to).
