Potatoes are delicious, but waiting for them to cook in the oven is the pits. Luckily, we have a solution: PotatOHs!
Nothing says comfort food like a steamy baked potato, but sometimes you don’t have time to bake up fresh spuds in the oven. Whether you’re baking or roasting, it can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to make your potatoes in a conventional oven, and that doesn’t even include the time it takes to preheat!
That’s fine for a special occasion, but on a busy weeknight, chances are you need to get supper on the table a little bit faster than that. Or a lot faster.
Cooking your potatoes in the microwave saves a ton of time, but have you noticed how when you cook regular potatoes in the microwave, the skin gets shriveled, and sometimes you end up with those not-so-appetizing hard spots?
That’s because microwaving food without the right packaging causes it to lose moisture. When you toss a typical naked potato in the microwave, you’re losing all of the natural moisture that keeps it tasting fresh. Also, more delicate potatoes like fingerlings don’t fare well in the microwave at all. They tend to just shrivel up into terrible little rocks. Not exactly the steamy, satisfying dish you were going for!
This is where the PotatOH comes in!
With PotatOHs, you can get a nutrition-packed meal on the table in 4-7 minutes instead of almost an hour, and that means less time in the kitchen and more time with your family. But what makes PotatOHs any different from other spuds? The secret is in the packaging.
We wrap every PotatOH in our special, BPA-free and recyclable SavorSeal™ wrap, designed to work with your microwave to lock in moisture and steam up every PotatOH so it’s just right.
That SavorSeal™ means no more hard spots or unappetizing, wrinkled skins! Whether you choose a tray of Fingerlings, our miniature Ruby or Gold Jubileez, or a good ‘ol russet or sweet potato, we tell you right on the package how to cook ’em up so they’re just right, and the SavorSeal™ makes sure that they come out as perfectly as any oven-baked potato. No waiting, no guesswork. Just perfect, delicious potatoes.
Once they’re steamed, your PotatOH is ready to serve! You can load ’em up with your favorite toppings – like cheese, salsa, or sour cream – and mash ’em, or get a little fancy. One of our favorite weeknight PotatOH dishes is this simple salad starring our Fingerling Jubileez. You can serve it up as a side dish, or make it a meal all on its own!
