Basic Cooking Instructions

For conventional or toaster oven: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Scrub potato carefully and remove any eyes from one medium or two small potatoes. Center over Bakato cooking spikes and press down firmly with heel of hand, until potato rests on bottom of dish. (Though not absolutely necessary, you may find it convenient to start holes with a sharp knife or aluminum nail.) Place Bakato in preheated oven and set timer for 50 minutes. Remove carefully from oven and slice potato in half lengthwise with a sharp knife. Fluff potato with a fork and apply spoonfuls of desired topping. Return to 400 degrees oven for another 5-10 minutes. Garnish and serve!

NOTE: When serving, it's a good idea to place the hot Bakato dish on a place mat or small plate, to protect tabletop surfaces.

Microwave Instructions: 
The Bakato is perfect for microwave use. You can cook a medium-sized potato in just 6 minutes. Add toppings from the stove or fridge during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Remove carefully, as the potato will heat the dish itself.
