Easy and delicious. I cooked the potatoes for 8 hours. They were perfect. I used red potatoes.

Great idea! Baking potatoes in the crockpot is easy and no fuss. In the summer, you can still have baked potatoes without heating up the kitchen and in the winter it saves room in the oven for other things! I love recipes I can throw in and walk away from!

This recipe is a great find. Our potatoes were so fluffy and light. I used olive oil and see salt. plus I added about a 1/4 C.of water to the pot. My crockpot instructions state that it should always have some liquid in the pot. I will use this recipe often. Thanks for posting!
