  • 4 - 6 russet baking potatoes I have done 8
  • 2 - 3 teaspoons olive oil optional 1/2 teaspoon per potato (I typically omit oil and salt)
  • 1 - 11/2 teaspoons salt about 1/4 teaspoon per potato(optional)
  • Aluminum foil
  • Your choice of toppings: Grated cheese, cooked broccoli, crumbled bacon, chives, chili, sour cream etc.


  1. Scrub the potatoes and dry completely.
  2. Prick each potato several times with a fork.
  3. Rub potatoes with a tiny bit of oil and then rub with salt. This step can be omitted.
  4. Wrap each potato tightly in aluminum foil. Be sure potato is completely covered.
  5. Place potatoes in slow cooker
  6. Cook the potatoes on high for 4 to 5 hours or low for 8 to 10 hours, or until soft. Do not overcook or potatoes will become soggy. I cook mine about 8 hours.
  7. Carefully unwrap the potatoes.
  8. Cut potatoes open and top with desired toppings.
