How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Place Potatoes On Base

    To begin using this cooking aid, place two baked potatoes that aren't peeled, and haven't been cut, on the textured bed of the device's base. Make sure there's a bit of space between the potatoes so steam can circulate as effectively as possible once the device is in the microwave.

  2. Add Lid

    Next, add the device's lid. This lid will be transparent, aside from the top, which will be light brown like the base. Its transparent center will give you a view of your potatoes from all sides.

  3. Place In Microwave

    Once you've added the lid to your cooking device, use the device's two handles to place it in your microwave. With the microwave's door shut, set the timer for at least a few minutes. If your microwave doesn't have a built-in baked potato cooking function, start with eight minutes and see how the potatoes look and feel after that.

  4. Remove And Serve

    When you've cut open a potato and verified that it's been cooked well enough (it should be fluffy, as opposed to hard), remove both your baked potatoes from your device. Prepare them for serving and eating in whatever way you choose, such as stuffing them to make potato skins or cutting them up to use in a potato salad. As for your Yummy Can Potatoes device, you can cook more potatoes inside it (two by two), scrub both pieces by hand, or load the pieces into your dishwasher.

How It Works

If you were to cook a potato on an ordinary plate in your microwave, you'd probably end up with a dry, mushy, and unappetizing potato. However, you should be able to avoid this problem by using your Yummy Can Potatoes device to microwave-bake your potatoes. Each device has a valve on its top that will literally make a steam pocket inside the device, blanketing the potatoes inside in steam and promoting rapid, moist cooking. Meanwhile, the device's textured base will promote even heat circulation, which means you won't end up with potatoes that have undercooked or burned spots.


  • Compact Size

    Each Yummy Can Potatoes device is small enough to fit in the vast majority of microwaves. When you're not using yours, you'll be able to place the lid on top of the base and store it in virtually any kitchen cabinet or leave it sitting on your counter near your microwave. If you'd like to bring it to your cottage, to work, or to any other location outside your home, it shouldn't take up more than a foot of space in any direction inside your vehicle.

  • For All Potatoes

    You'll be able to use this device to cook baked potatoes of a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and types. It doesn't matter if the potatoes you want to cook inside your device are large or small, as long as they'll fit inside. Likewise, it'll cook inexpensive, misshapen potatoes in the same way it would cook more high-quality, aesthetically pleasing ones. Keep in mind, though, that only two potatoes should be placed inside each device at once, even if it looks like you'll be able to fit more in there.

  • Dishwasher Safe

    If you have a dishwasher, you can simply load each of the two pieces that make up your potato-cooking device into the larger appliance after you're done cooking potatoes. For those users who don't have a dishwasher, you'll likely be able to get away with just rinsing the pieces off sometimes, without scrubbing them super-thoroughly, as long as they've been used only for potatoes. If they have meat or dairy residue on them or look visibly dirty, they'll need to be scrubbed by hand or cleaned in your dishwasher.

  • Multi-Device Sets Available

    One Yummy Can Potatoes cooking aid may be enough for you, but if you think it's not, you'll be able to obtain sets of two, three, or four identical devices. Having more than one device might come in handy if you have more than one microwave, as you'll be able to cook four or more potatoes at once instead of just two.

Positive Points

  • Good For Students

    Yummy Can Potatoes devices are ideal for students who are living in a dorm room and are either too busy for oven-style cooking or have to share one oven with a bunch of other students. Students who have a microwave in their room and want to enjoy the taste of baked potatoes can pop a couple of potatoes onto their cooking aid and be eating them in about 10 minutes. Young professionals who find adjusting to the work world stressful might also prefer to use this device to home-cook potatoes in the microwave, instead of turning their oven on.

  • Encourages Potato Consumption

    Having a device like the Yummy Can Potatoes one that you can use to prepare baked potatoes quickly will likely encourage you to eat more baked potatoes than you otherwise would. If you often grab some French fries on the way home from work because you can get them so quickly, you may realize you can make delicious microwaved potatoes just as quickly with this device. Logically speaking, since baked potatoes aren't cooked in a deep-fryer, and you don't have to add oil, salt, or any other fatty seasonings to them at home, they're typically a healthier choice.

Critical Advice

People who want to add toppings like cheese, tomato sauce, or veggies to their whole baked potatoes will be better served by adding them after the potatoes come out of the microwave instead of before. If you were to cut a hard potato open before it's cooked to try and add toppings, you might not be able to make a hole of an appropriate shape and size to accommodate them. Therefore, it's a good idea to microwave-cook your baked potatoes first, add your chosen toppings, and then pop the potatoes back in the microwave for one to several minutes.

Negative Points

  • Only For Potatoes

    The Yummy Can Potatoes piece of kitchenware has been specifically designed to cook potatoes (including yams) quickly and efficiently. You could try to put other food items like pieces of meat or vegetables inside one of these, but it may not cook them as effectively. That means you may not be satisfied with the resulting taste.
