If you want awesome baked potatoes you should NOT:
1.) Wrap them in foil.
2.) Boil them in the microwave with shallow water.
3.) Stick them in the toaster. Because that's not logical.
So remember, no foil no boil. Or... toaster.
How to achieve amazing baked potatoes:
1.) Bake them clean and naked (Get your mind out of the gutter. I mean clean the skin well and don't wrap them in anything).
2.) Cook them slower at a lower temp. 90 minutes at 325 degrees is ideal.
3.) Put some olive oil on the potatoes and lightly salt them. It makes the skin so good when they're done. They don't taste like dirt. I'm not a fan of dirt flavored things.
4.) Poke holes throughout the potato with a fork so they cook better.
Trust me on this, they come out so light and fluffy inside and the skin is so tasty.
