My New Adventure with My Microwave

For years I have extolled the virtues of using the popcorn setting on a microwave. It is such a convenient and easy way to use the microwave. I just press popcorn and then start and it cooks for 2 1/2 minutes. If more time is needed, I just repeat the process.

Yesterday I noticed another setting on the microwave I bought about 3 years ago. It said- Baked Potato. I thought perhaps that could be a good one to use thinking that it takes longer to cook a baked potato.

But alas when I pressed baked potato, I realized that I would need to somehow enter the time to cook. That severely complicates things.

So I will continue to only use the popcorn setting for my microwave and extoll the virtues of doing so. It really is the easiest way to go.

P.S. the microwave in the picture in this post is not my microwave. Best not to scare my readers with a picture from my kitchen πŸ™‚

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

        I’m just messing with you bro Matt…πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™ˆπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

  1. The title of your post had me intrigued. πŸ˜‚ I too frequently use the microwave or even the toaster oven. I look forward to reading future adventures with your microwave!

  2. This was an entertaining read! What good is a baked potato setting if you need to enter the cook time yourself?! There’s a popcorn setting on my microwave too, but I’m hesitant to use it. It says, β€œWait and listen until the popping slows” right on the bag, so the rule follower in me always does. I plan to be BOLDER in 2021. I shall push the popcorn 🍿 button and walk away.😎

    1. Our microwave that we bought almost three years ago also has a baked potato setting. Here’s how it works: wash potato, poke a couple of holes in it with a fork, put the potato on a microwaveable plate, put it in microwave, close the door, then push the baked potato button.

      Last step: push the number 1 if you are only baking one potato. If you are baking two potatoes, push the number 2. If three potatoes, push number 3. You do NOT have to enter the time it will take to cook, just the number for how many potatoes you have in the microwave. πŸ˜€

  3. Potatoes are very easy to do in the microwave. Here’s how:

    For a medium size potato, wash potato. Place potato on a plate. With a fork, poke a hole in potato.

    Using microwave setting as is, I use 3 to 4 minutes. Depending on the wattage of your microwave, you make have to cook it longer.

    My microwave is 1000 wattage.
    Experiment! Trial and error is a good thing.πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘£

  4. Haha I think on the bake potato settings they just want you to enter how many potatoes you are cooking but not the timeπŸ˜‚you ought to check again!!πŸ˜‚β€οΈ
