Do you have to have a separate bag for each potato? Yours look very nice.
No, this bag will take 3 large or 4 medium potatoes.
I've made many of these with embroidered potato on them and also embroidered "tater baker on it " they turned out so cute! oh and now as seen on tv selling for 9.99 lololol
Yes they are getting more popular.
they are nice I made a hundred and 5 of these for Christmas every one loved them. I used printed fabric and quilted them..
now I still have to make me one.
You made 105? OMG Lenamea.
These are very nice!!!
Super. Looks great. You wrote that the potato don't cook faster in it. But I look so much better with these.
That's all I use to cook my potato in the microwave now, but before the bag came along, I would wrap my potato in paper towel. One thing though, the potato stays hot for at least 1/2 hour in the bag.
was this an ITH project? I would love to try making one of these. How do I find the pattern?
Check the link under my pictures. That is where I learned how do do them.
they taste so much fluffier this way, well done, husg Loralye
Yes they do.
Guess if a potato was in a bag, if the potato exploded it wouldn't make such a mess! Cute bags!
Funny you say that, I've heard people say a potato could explode but it never happened to me.
I've had a potato explode if I didn't prick them first, so I always prick mine. Not always, though, could have been my oven temperature.
I love mine. They aren't faster, however I think the potatoes taste better in them. I did read somewhere (here?) to wash them! The starch from the potatoes can cause them to scorch inside.
Actually, yes I was my potatoes first, then dry it, but no pricking.
wrap your potato in a paper towel while the potato is wet and it is much better.
Nice Potato cookers. I think they do cook faster. I made a few a couple of years ago and they serve as a potholer in a pinch. !00 % cotton is a must
I still need to make mine. We have some designs, someone will post from where.
My mom bought me one years ago, Carole, and I use it weekly....it is about 10 years old now....these are lovely.....
Thanks basketkase. They were so much fun to make. Now I am making potholders for soup bowls for microwave. Carole NB Canada
When you take the time to go through projects you'll find lots of soup bowl holders (as well as potatobags) by different cuties, noah a.o.
