    I have been wanting to make the baked potato bags for the microwave. Does anyone know an easy way to explain how to make them to me?

    http://tipnut.com/make-your-own-potato-baker-bags/

    Go down to where it says:

    "Free pattern/tutorial to make your own potato bags found on the web archive here: Potato Baker Bags"

    click on the Potato baker bags

    that worked for me

    Just pulled it up. If you click on the freebies there is a disclaimer to not use the bags as they might be a fire hazard.

    Maybe this is a silly question - why do you need a bag? I just put the potatoes in there on a paper towel.

    The only time I put material items in the microwave is to warm my corn bag for aches & pains. That is not over 3 minutes.

    I usually put them in the oven but wanted to try the microwave bag, but am to cheap to buy one when I can make one.

    If you make one, make sure you don't use fabric with the shiny gold or silver on it. They will catch fire for sure. But I have two that I made -- one for baked potatoes and one for warming tortillas. They work great as long as you are very careful that they do not touch the sides of the microwave or that you don't cook in them for longer than 4 1/2 minutes at a time. If baking potatoes, you can stop after 4 1/2 minutes, let it rest for 30 seconds or so and then start the microwave again. It only takes about 30-45 seconds to warm tortillas -- no more frying them ever.
