How do you make your "baked" potatoes?

Do you always make yours in the oven? Ever do it in a microwave? Campfire? Grill?

Rub with oil, wrap in foil, bake at whatever temp for at least an hour (or more). Hard to mess them up. Same way over a campfire. I'll do them in a microwave, naked and forked, for about six minutes if I'm I a hurry but I don't think they're as good.

Do you have to pierce them with a fork/knife?

I admit that I've never baked them in the oven. ***hangs my head in shame***

I've always put a few "pierce" marks in them with a knife and throw them in the microwave for about 7 minutes, turn them over and put on for another 7-8 minutes (depending on the size).

I don't fork them in the oven, but I bake them a loooooong time. I like them really "creamy."

We were given a bake potato microwave bag a few years ago and making it in that bag I think they taste just as good as in the oven and it comes out quicker... so now we usually "bake" in the microwave.

I rub them in butter and then coat them in coarse salt and bake them in the oven, directly on the oven rack (with a pan set lower to catch the drips). I don;t poke them first--they are less fluffy if you do.

Forked and in the oven; forked, wrapped in foil and on the grill or campfire. Both take about an hour. Wouldn't ever consider a microwave.

Rub with butter, wrap in foil, and bake in the oven. On rareoccasion I put them in the microwave, I poke holes in it with a fork, put on a small plate, put a tbsp or two of water on the plate, cover the plate with saran wrap.

I put them in the microwave for 3-4 minutes.

Then remove from microwave and put in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour

Good stuff

Almost the same for me too. Pierce with a fork, 4 mins. in the microwave remove and wrap in foil. Then pop them in the oven for about 45 mins. more or less depending on the size.

I bake in the oven then slice a thin strip off the side. Scoop out the potato meat into a bowl, mix with butter, sour cream, cheddar cheese and green onions. Refill the shells with this blend then back in the oven to warm it all up again. Delicious!

I poke them then microwave them until about half-done, then into the toaster oven to crisp up the skins. Hate soggy skins!

I wash and pierce them all over and put 10 in a microwave for about 10 minutes.
Done!

I set my oven to about 450 degrees. I wash the potatoes, wrap in foil, pierce with fork, and bake for about an hour, sometimes longer. Like another poster, I like them really creamy.

I should try oiling or buttering the skins but I don't eat the skins so, I figure, why bother. I used to love the skins but I've heard that if you don't buy organic potatoes, the skins hold a lot of pesticides.
