Craving for the perfect baked potatoes? Look no further! Our step-by-step guide will walk you through the process of creating fluffy and delicious slow-cooker baked potatoes that will leave you wanting more. Check o


  • 4 to 6 russet baking potatoes
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 to 1½ teaspoons of fine kosher salt
  • Aluminum foil


  1. Begin by washing your russet baking potatoes thoroughly, ensuring all dirt is removed. Dry them off completely with a clean towel.
  2. Rip off a sufficient amount of aluminum foil that will entirely encase each potato.
  3. Take a fork and pierce each potato multiple times to allow steam to escape during the cooking process.
  4. Lay the pierced potato on the aluminum foil, positioning it in the center.
  5. Drizzle roughly 1/2 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil over each potato.
  6. Sprinkle about 1/4 teaspoon of fine kosher salt atop each potato.
  7. Using your hands, massage the olive oil and kosher salt over the entire potato, ensuring it is fully covered.
  8. Wrap the potato tightly in the aluminum foil, ensuring there are no exposed areas.
  9. Gently place the foil-wrapped potatoes in your slow cooker, arranging them in a single layer for even cooking.
  10. Set your slow cooker to high and cook the potatoes for 4 to 5 hours. Alternatively, you may opt to cook them on low for 8 to 10 hours. Do note that cooking times may differ based on the size of the potatoes and the specific slow cooker utilized. You can check for doneness by inserting a fork into the potato – it should pierce through easily.
  11. Once your potatoes are completely cooked, carefully unwrap the foil, being mindful of the hot steam that may escape.
  12. Use a fork to fluff up the insides of each potato.
  13. Serve your delectable slow-cooker baked potatoes hot, garnished with your preferred toppings such as sour cream, butter, cheese, bacon bits, chives, or even a spoonful of chili.
