Crock Pot Baked Potatoes

by Laura

Today I am sharing a secret with all of you that I just recently discovered.  I wish I had learned about this a long time ago, or at least at the beginning of the summer.  So here is the secret – you can make baked potatoes in a crock pot!  I know, isn’t that cool.  It is so simple to do.
The beauty of this is you can have baked potatoes without heating up your oven and your house, this is perfect for summertime.  Think about those times when you just don’t have room in your oven along with everything else.  No problem, just cook the potatoes in the crock pot.  Or you have a busy day and just don’t have the time to do baked potatoes.  No problem because it takes 8 hours in the crock pot.  You can have them cooking while you are at work, running errands, etc.  I know, I just changed all of your lives with this secret.  The only thing I ask is that you share this secret with others.  This is too good of a secret to keep to yourself!


Crock Pot Baked Potatoes
potatoes (I used russets)

  1. Wash your potatoes well and let them dry.  Then wrap each potato in a piece of foil (no need for pricking them).
  2. Place the foil wrapped potatoes in your crock pot.  I put 8 medium sized potatoes in my 4 quart crock pot, but I probably could have fit at least 10.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours.

I use my crock pot for potatoes,but I do not use foil. Remember if they are wrapped in foil,they steam,whether in the oven or crock pot. Just oil and roll in kosher salt,and place in crock pot. If you want baked flavor,no foil. I’ve been doing it for years! Enjoy!

What a great idea. The oven is so full I can’t squeeze in a potato. Oh wait that has never happened. But not having time; so while I can’t plan how to cook a baked potato I will hopefully planned ahead 8 hours so i can toss some in a crock pot. If I want a baked potato I don’t see what the problem is with doing them in the oven. I actually love a baked potato and have them at least twice a week.

I used Russets wrapped in foil and cooked on low for 8 and then kept them warm for about 2 hours. The potatoes were brown and the flavor was wrong. Were they in the pot too long?

Rhonda, I always said I didn’t like the texure of microwaved baked potatoes either. Then I was given a tip that truly works. Please try it at least one time and if you don’t like it, then you haven’t really lost anything except time! LOL Wash, pierce and microwave the baking potatoes until tender. Try not to get them overdone, just until you can feel the tell-tale \give\ when you press on the potato. Take immediately from the microwave and wrap first in a paper towel, then in aluminum foil. Put on your serving plates. They’ll stay hot 10-15 minutes easily while you finish the rest of your meal. Open and serve the potatoes and I think you’ll be so pleasantly surprised at the improved texture/consistency of the potatoes!

I microwave mine *all the time*. I would add though, to either spray butter on the skin first or butter flavored cooking spray. I know that might sound gross, but it helps keep the skin from getting…weird.

I wash, pierce and microwave 2 main dish size, large (unwrapped) potatoes on a large plate with a paper towel on it,cook on high for about 12 minutes. Then I take them out of the microwave and place a bowl large enough to cover up-side-down over them and they are done in about 5 more minutes.

do people really not know what a microwave does? The microwave is not unhealthy. The microwave emits heat and excites the water molecules. The only thing it is not good for is meat because it will cook the meat dry and the grease gets all over in your microwave. They say to not boil your vegetables because it boils out the nutrients, maybe that’s what you were thinking of. Crock pots are really fun to cook with and everything tastes delicious! I am excited to try potato’s in a crock pot! Woot!

Except for the fact that if you have two identical plants and you water one with regular clean water, and water the other plant with microwaved (obviously cooled first) regular clean water from the same source, the plant being fed the microwaved water dies. Try it at home. Hmmmmmm is the microwave really cooking foods that are still good for our bodies? ….

You are sooo wrong – microwaves are so bad they are banned in Europe. I read many articles on this and only use my microwave to heat up my rice bag or bed buddy – that’s all it’s good for. A study was conducted using microwaved water and tap water to germinate seeds. The seeds watered with the micowaved water did NOT germinate, but the ones they used tap water did. Proves that microwaves kill ALL nutrients. Look it up!!!

If you microwave your potatoes for about 5 min and then put them in the oven, it greatly reduces the oven time and you still get the crispy skin and fluffy interior. This tip also works well for roasting cut potatoes….microwave them about halfway, then cut them up, toss w olive oil and season, lay on baking sheet and finish in the oven. Got this tip from America’s test kitchen! I have done this crock pot method before, but don’t care for how dense the potatoes become.

My mom did potatoes in the crock pot all the time growing up. She would quite often make a meatloaf and put it in the bottom of the crock then just lay washed potatoes on top, no need for foil. When your done cooking you have meat and potatoes done at the same time. It does make dents in the top of you meat loaf, but my mom just named that meal craters of the moon and it was family fave.

NO! Keeping the potatoes in foil too long can create samonella. A restaurant left a potato overnight in foil and it got re-heated under a heat lamp and served. it just about killed a man. Of course the restaurant closed down, the man lost everything he was so sick for so long. Be careful! I don’t know what the rule for keeping it is but you should find out before you do this.

Reply
Lea May 21, 2012 - 6:23 pm

You can’t “create” salmonella. It’s either there or it’s not. If the potatoes and/or prep materials and area weren’t contaminated, no amount of heating is going to “create salmonella.

You can get sick from potatoes if they are not heated properly. There have been cases of people getting Botchulism from potatoes and rice not being heated to the right temperature.

Reply
Debbie June 15, 2012 - 4:36 pm

If not taken out of foil and cooled down right it can cause botulism which can kill.

Reply
Kat June 16, 2012 - 4:07 pm

If cooked food is kept at a proper hot temperature it will not develop any kind of bacterial whatever. You are always taking a risk with food that is served buffet-style because there is no way to be sure the temp was hot enough. But if it is, they will be fine. Otherwise food should be refrigerated or thrown away within 1-2 hours of finishing cooking.
This is not rocket science, people. Don’t leave food sitting out overnight then reheat. Duh. And don’t eat food that has gone cold sitting out too long. If the potatoes stay hot enough in a container, then they should be good, but I’d be more worried about what the plastic in the ice chest is adding to my food when heated — they really aren’t meant for hot foods so will leach.
And foil does not cause botulism. Where do you get these crazy ideas?

Reply

You can put your potatoes in the bottom, well wrapped in foil, then just place your seasoned chicken on top of them, not wrapped in foil. The juice just drips to the bottom but won’t get into your potatoes. I’ve done this using seasoned salt & it will taste like a rotisserie chicken.

My crock pot on low (like this recipe calls for) uses 125W/hr. This recipe needs 8 hours to cook, so 8hr * 125W = 1,000W to cook.
My electric oven recipe for baked potatoes takes 5 minutes in the microwave, and 30 minutes in the oven. Let’s forget the microwave completely and factor just the oven usage. My oven uses 3,000W/hr. So 3,000W*1/2hr = 1,500W
Even without factoring in the microwave wattage, the electric oven method still uses 50% more electricity than the crock pot. Just because something runs longer doesn’t mean it uses electricity.

Coat the potatoes with coarse salt, then cover with foil. The salt will retain the extra moisture.

Yes it’ll work in the large roasting pan…I wash, dry then place potatoes in layer cover with coarse salt and repeat…it takes about 6-8 hours depending on how many potatoes and how big each one is. The potatoes end up fluffy and the saly adds to the flavor of the potatoes. A trick I learned from my Grandmother who fed farm hands and hungry 4-H horse club members.

I just learned recently about the crock pot method and the suggestion was to scrunch up several pieces of alum foil and toss into bottom of crock. Wash and dry potatoes and pierce with fork. Lay them on top of the foil. You can cook up to 10 on low for 8-10 hours. I can’t seem to find the site again but I’ll look for it.

I love crockpot potatoes! I usually cook mine without foil. I just prick them and rub them with a bit of olive oil so the skins don’t get weird. I’ve never tried cooking the potatoes on low though. On high it usually takes about 2 hours, but I usually only make 3-4 at a time. I don’t know if more potatoes would take longer.

I’ve never tried baking potatoes in the crock pot, what a great idea. Another great way to have ‘baked’ potatoes is a using a potato bag in the microwave! It actually makes the potatoes come out (almost) as if they were baked in the oven. My MIL gave us one for Christmas a few years ago and we love it!

I use the micro bag as well, I live in FL and don’t like to heat up the house, but be careful and don’t wander off too far. I got one for my daughter and it caught FIRE in her microwave. I will try the crockpot next time and put in on my patio. Everything heats up a FL kitchen.

This is the 2nd time I’ve seen ‘MIL’ written in a Comments section. I searched for it twice (I think Americans say ‘2 times’) on the Internet, without success, but I didn’t have a lot of time to look thoroughly. Could/does it mean ‘Mother-In-Law’?
I’ll check back one day, to see if anyone leaves/left a reply. Thanks, if you do.

Yes, MIL does mean Mother-In-Law. And… Americans say 2 times and also say twice 🙂

Someone ask if you can bake sweet potatoes in the crock pot.
The answer to that is yes.
They are yummy.. I like them even better than white potatoes in the crock pot.
