I just ran across this on another food blog…oh my goodness, I can’t believe I’ve never heard of these before now! Such a great find and at only $6.50! Ordering one from Etsy right now! My husband and I love baked potatoes and often make them in the microwave but many times they are not done enough, too overdone, or end up looking all shriveled up. This is the perfect solution!
Etsy seller DaSweetZpot explains just what a Potato Pouch is….
Never heard of the POTATO POUCH?!
You take a potato, put it in the pouch, put the pouch in the microwave, and in 3-5 minutes (depending on your microwave) you have a moist, baked potato.
No baking, no boiling, no slicing, no poking..
just place your potato in the pouch, and put the pouch in the microwave, and PRESTO…. Baked Potato!
You can also cook yams, sweet potatoes, carrots, zucchini, corn on the cob, any hardy vegetable that normally takes 40-50 to bake or boil… warm bread rolls, taco shells, tortillas, bagels, muffins, even a sandwich! Anything you toss in the microwave with paper towels, you can put in the pouch. Save time and energy, and cook as many items as they fit in this 8″x11″ pouch, any size, shape or form.
Sure, you can do the same by simply wrapping in paper towel or placing it on a dish.. but by doing this, doesn’t your food end up dry, wrinkled? sometimes it feels like rubber!?
Paper towels are meant to absorb moisture, but our POTATO POUCH is designed to capture that moisture and use it to steam your food and cook them in less time, keeping all the natural flavors. Our Potato Pouch is made of 100% cotton and it has organic cotton padding, so it won’t catch on fire or contaminate your food with polyester filling. Your food comes out moist, tender, as if you had baked it or boiled it.
