You must try one of these!

Just before Christmas I sent for a set of these microwave bags from one of the leaflets that came through the door. I gave one to a friend. The idea is to cook jacket potatoes. I didn't have great expectations but how wrong was I? Depending on the size and quantity of the potato(es) and a bit of experimenting perfect jacket potatoes are the result every time. At Christmas I experimented with some parsnips - cooking them in the bag for 5 minutes then putting them on a greased oventray(frylight) spraying with frylight and cooking for 20 minutes - they were awesome. Even Jon said they were the best he has ever tasted. Last night I washed and peeled a large potato - cut into chunky chip sizes - popped in bag in  microwave for 5 minutes - then put them on a greased oventray(frylight) spraying with frylight and cooking for 20 minutes- result - best chips I have ever tasted.
Crisp on the outside, fluffy in the middle - just like my mum use to make.
The bag can be washed and is ready to go!
Good news - I have found an online bargain! HERE!


  1. Sounds great, very economical and time saving too.

  2. I think my friend saw one for sale in the Betterware book, but decided to wrap a tea towel round her spud. Interesting to know how you got on with yours.

  3. I saw this before and decided not to get it. I don't like the way the microwave cooks the skin on the potato. I have tried recooking them in the oven and wasn't so pleased. But maybe the pocket makes it better.
    Now I will have to try this.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Slimming world should know about these! (Have ordered some).xxx

  5. Slimming World should know about these! Have ordered some! xxx

  6. You've sold me! I always end up with burned shrivelled parsnips when i roast them!

  7. Hi Denise I tried these and couldn't get them to cook a baked potato at all - sent them this morning for a refund!!


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
