  • Potatoes your choice


  • Scrub potatoes thoroughly. Place in slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours OR cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  • Note: Cooking time may need to be adjusted based on how full your slow cooker is filled. If the crock is more than 2/3 full, plan for a longer cooking time; if less than half full, potatoes may be done sooner.

  1. I’ve done “baked” potatoes in the slow cooker before, but wrapped mine in tin foil. I thought they were horrible – – steamed and gummy. Your directions show to do it without foil. Are they fluffy your way, or still a steamed texture?

      I really didn’t notice any difference between these and the ones baked in the oven. But perhaps I just love potatoes enough that it doesn’t matter–I’m sorry, I’m not much help.
