To cook the potatoes in the microwave, let’s do it without peeling them, so that they are whole and perfect for whatever use we want to give them later. Then we can easily peel them if we want, or open them in half, cut them into wedges or present them in the way that we consider most convenient.
The first thing we will do is prick them everywhere, with a toothpick or skewer. I usually use the skewers to eat ears that usually have two brads and they make my work much easier. Take at least a minute to do this to prevent the potatoes from exploding in the microwave.
Then we have to wrap them well with transparent film, giving them at least three turns so that the steam released during cooking does not escape and help a quick and uniform cooking of the product.
To make them look good, it is necessary to cook them in the microwave at 700W power, in two successive 5-minute batches, one minute apart. These times are for medium-sized potatoes. If they are older you can do one last batch of another 3 minutes. If they are smaller, we will cook two batches of 4 minutes each. Experience will help you get the point right.
