Fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside, these baked potatoes are the kind you eat whole. This recipe uses the steam function, along with the probe, to quickly cook multiple potatoes to their optimal texture. After the potatoes are tender, the oven switches to dry heat to crisp the skin.
Note: The initial baking time depends on the size of your potatoes. You can expect a medium, 8-ounce potato to take about 45 minutes to cook. A smaller, 5-ounce potato will take around 30 minutes; a larger, 12-ounce potato will take about 1 hour.
This recipe uses a perforated pan, which is now available to order through Anova. If you don't have one, placing a wire rack over a sheet pan works as a substitute.
