I learned the hard way why to poke potatoes with a fork before they are baked. I put some potatoes in my regular oven, when I poked one to see if it was done, it exploded. My son thought it was way cool. I was very shocked. Looking back it was pretty funny

My sister-in-law was cooking a family dinner and exploded several of them in the oven. I had never seen it happen before. I always wrap my potatos in foil after I rub them down with olive oil.

I have little metal things that I poke into the potatoes before baking. They bake in about 1/3 the time and I have never had trouble with them exploding. I also wrap in foil. I bought the metal things a long time ago, can't remember where.

There are special potato nails that you can buy and drive through the longest part of the potato. They help the potatoes cook evenly and quicker. Definitely no explosions when using them

funny. My fiance won't poke holes in them. He says they cook better with out the holes. I told him that to poke holes in them kept them from exploding. But of course like a man he dosen't listen. Maybe he will when one explodes and he'll have to clean up the mess. lol

If you poke a few holes in them, coat them with olive oil and roll them sea salt you will have a great baked potato

Even if you prick them with a fork they can still explode--a few years ago I had one blow up when i was poking them witha fork to tremove them for dinner--luckily I only got a small superficial burn on my arm when that happened--the moisture builds up as they bake and they can still explode tho it's rare.
