These Jacket Potatoes are very good but we had some this week that had nasty black holes in. I am sure it was just an oversight but could not serve them looking so unattractive/
Ideal for a quick fix, satisfying hot meal
I discovered these when I was shopping for yet another lockdown without a working oven. I'd always dismissed them as an expensive short-cut, but by the third lockdown, was badly in need of some variety and of products which would make hot, tempting meals quickly. I've now had two packets each containing 4 potatoes. I have found that they cook through in the microwave in the time given on the pack, and are soft and fluffy inside. The skin is clean and edible, even though as others have said, it lacks the crisp finish of an oven bake. When you realise you've run out of fresh carbohydrates, having these as backup in the freezer is really useful. (I decant them into a clean bag to save freezer space, and keep the instruction part of the box with my recipe books.) They are very versatile in what you can team them with, and for the odd quick fix and satisfying hot meal are worth the extra cost. My equivalent of ordering a take-away :-)
theses were horrid, and one third of it was uncooked after microwaving
Butters best friend
Had quite a few of these and never had any issues about the quality. They smell exactly like very lightly oiled jackets, a perfect aroma and that’s straight from the Mike. Even without crisping the skin in the oven for ten or so minutes they’re really good with just a generous pat of butter or whatever takes your fancy.
Perfect baked potatoes
Absolutely delicious. I’ve never been very successful with raw potatoes whether in oven or microwave, so these made a perfect meal easy.
Super potatoes but not much time saved
Beautiful baked potatoes, white and fluffy inside, but even when cooked in the oven the skins were not crispy. Which brings me to main gripe, from frozen oven cooking takes 40 mins ! not the sort of time saving I expect from a frozen product. True, you can microwave a bit quicker than you can from raw but then you guaranty no crispy skins.
Will/am ordering again today!
These are the best 'ready' baked pots we have ever had. Had to do slightly longer in microwave as not quite hot enough, but think it may be the microwave at fault. Have had them with tuna/mayo and baked beans but would be happy to give them to guests too with an 'upgraded' menue Helen, Haddington

Great product and great test . Will recommend to everyone.
Jacket Potatoes in a few minutes
Quite expensive for what is essentially, 4 medium sized potatoes, however they do taste nice and are very quick and easy to prepare. Great to keep in the freezer for a quick lunch.
Convenient - could buy a potato tho
I like the size, I done them in an Sage electric table-top oven. These would probably be better cooked defrosted, as parts were still after - probably just me checking too much.
