Selecting the Right Potato
Russets are ideal for baked potatoes. They have a relatively low water content compared to other potatoes, which allow them to remain fluffy and airy on the inside. Their thicker skins lend to a crispy exterior as well as providing protection for the inside of the potato as it cooks.
Potatoes should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from UV and bright lights. A pantry with a door is usually the best bet. While they store longer than other produce, buy potatoes more often and as you need them.
A microwave might seem like a fast way to “bake” a potato, but there are two reasons why it’s not a great idea. First, microwaves heat foods very unevenly, so some parts of the potato might rapidly reach 205 degrees while others get to only 180 degrees. Microwave Baked Potato
