What we liked:

Super easy and delicious. The potatoes come out perfectly cooked and moist. 

What we didn't like:

The potatoes do tend to be a little off-colored when they are done cooking, but they make the best baked potato ever. 

What Kaspian thought about it:

He just wanted a basic potato, cheese, sour cream and butter on his potato and he said it was "so pretty like daddy's". He is a potato lover. 

Next time:

No change. Good as it is.
