Cooking a Large Number of Potatoes at Once

Q: I need to bake 60 potatoes and I have two kitchen wall ovens. The larger oven has two racks and the smaller has one rack. I will split them by putting 40 in the bigger oven and 20 in the smaller one. What's the best way to bake them (temperature and for how long)?
A: Wash the potatoes and place them on a single level (for better air circulation) in the oven.  Bake at 400°F for about one hour or until the internal temperature of the potato is 200-210°F.
