Jacket Potato/Baked Potatoes 5 0 5 1
  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs 15 mins
  • 5 mins

    4 hrs 15 mins

    4 hrs 20 mins

  • Yields: 3 servings (or as many as you need)


As many potatos as you need (I only do 1 layer)

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Filling of your choice (cheese/sourcream/garlic butter/bolognaise sauce)


1Wash the potato, but leave the skin on

2Lightly rub with olive oil

3Prick the potatoes with about 4 -5 knife pricks

4Lightly spray aluminum foil with spray

5Wrap each potato in the foil

6I place a small rack inside my slow cooker and then place the potatoes on top of the rack

7I then put about an inch of water in the bottom, I do check the water level while it's cooking

8I cook them for 4:15 on high


1Fill them with your own choice of fillings

2I used a 5.5 Litre Contempo Slow Cooker which cooks fast

3All slow cookers cook at different temps, and potatoes may take longer in some

4Check with your manual if you can 'dry-cook' your slow cooker. I prefer to place the water in the bottom, and elevate the potatoes

5You can top your potatoes with whatever you choose.

6I used leftover bolognaise sauce using this recipe Quick Easy Spaghetti Bolognaise

They are the best potatoes! So creamy. Once cooked I sprinkled some garlic powder on them, added some bacon, capsicum, shallots and tasty cheese then popped them back in the slow cooker to melt the cheese. A dollop of sour cream topped off my very tasty dinner 👍

I cooked mine 9 hours on low, wrapped in foil, no water, no tea towel under lid and they were perfect.
My potatoes were quite large but varying in sizes but they were all cooked perfectly. I used Kennebecs.

Best jacket potatos ever! I don’t have a wire rack so instead put about an inch of water on the bottom of bowl and some foil balls then put the potatos on top

I would go around 8hrs on low and I believe the keep warm function should still be OK to use at the end.

Could you put them on low for longer? If so how long would you suggest- plus I’d need to use my keep warm function, would it still work ok

You need the rack to elevate them above the water so try an upturned bowl or dish instead 🙂

I don’t have a small rack, would it still works without it or what else can I use?

Brenda, My potatos were slightly larger than tennis balls, so if you use larger potatoes, then you will need to add more cooking time.
