Ask Dr. Potato

Q: Can potatoes be baked in a roaster? 

A: I’ve never found the roaster to be very quick for this kind of a task. Hamilton Beach, a roaster manufacturer, recommends 400°F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Leaf TV claims 1½ to 2 hours at 400°F. In a conventional oven it takes about 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes at 400°F. But in a convection oven it takes about 45-50 minutes.
