I’m not sure if this falls under real baking or not…but I’m having real trouble getting the perfect baked potato. Embarrassing I know!

To me, a baked potato should be crispy (but not burnt) on the outside and soft in the middle. My microwave doesn’t seem to let me do this, as the outside always ends up soggy.

What’s your secrets for getting the perfect baked potato? Should I just give up on the microwave and stick to the oven? The problem with that is that my oven takes so long to cook anything.

Thanks!

Edit: Forgot to say which microwave I’m using! It’s a panasonic but doesn’t have a grill or anything, just a basic microwave:
