We used the spicy option for 4 potatoes and though I followed the times exactly they were not quite cooked at the centre (my potatoes were maybe a little larger than medium but not much) but the taste was fantastic a lovely crisp outer and spicy flavour, will definately try the herb option too but due to allergy issues doubt the onion one will be done.
