I found this worked and I got a crispy skin on my potato (which I wanted) by baking it in the oven for about 20 minutes instead of 15 and turning the temp up to 375 after 10 minutes. I also rinsed them with water as suggested both before microwaving and before putting them in the oven, and I think that helped, but they need a slightly higher temp than the recipe says if you like the skin crispy.

  3. Rinse it again so it's wet. Sprinkle on salt and pepper if desired.
  4. Finish baking in oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
