Can I bake potatoes in a roaster? If so, can you give me directions or direct me to a recipe?
I’ve never found the roaster to be very quick for this kind of a task. Hamilton Beach, a roaster manufacturer, recommends 400°F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Leaf TV claims 1 ½ to 2 hours at 400°F. Here’s a link to that article: https://www.leaf.tv/articles/how-do-i-bake-potatoes-in-electric-roasters/
In a convection oven it takes about 45-50 minutes, in a conventional oven about 1 hour to 1 hour and ten minutes at 400°F.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
