First, it does work. It makes nice moist potatoes. They are cooked in this bag, in a microwave, much faster than any other home method.
Instructions for the bag
The instructions state to wash the bag before first use. The instructions did not state if you could put in the clothes drier. I could feel insulation between the two layers, so to be on the safe side I let it air dry.
Instructions for the potato
Wash the potatoes, do NOT PIERCE.
You put the bag in the microwave flap side down.
When you cook (they state NOT at the highest setting) your potatoes, it is 4 minutes for the first, then add one minute per potato. So you can put UP TO FOUR POTATOES and seven minutes. Then add 1 minute at a time until done.
How you can find four potatoes to simultaneously fit this little insulated bag of nine and-a-half inches by 8 inches is beyond me.
They do not tell you the power settings. They implicitly state, do NOT cook on the highest setting. The correct setting is not in the enclosed booklet nor on their internet site; I know, I spent an hour looking for how to calculate the power setting based on oven wattage, I did not find any such chart.
They also do not tell you how to tell the potato is done without cutting it open.
Exaggerated advertising claim:
No way can you get four average potatoes in this bag, maybe the fingerling potatoes or the smallish red potatoes.
HOWEVER.... This afternoon I followed all the directions (as usual) and placed one potato in the express bag in the microwave for 3 minutes. Not two minutes later, I smelled something burning, opened the microwave and saw the bag completely melted in the corner! Serious fire hazard!! (And very upsetting since I was so happy when I first bought it.) The bag was clean as per directions prior to use. No reason whatsoever for this to have happened. When searching for the company's phone number, I discovered that the website is "404 NOT FOUND"
They tasted great and were cooked perfectly!

I like to keep baked potatoes on hand and this comes in really handyPublished 12 days ago by barbara76028
Needs about 30seconds more. Works great! Even better if the potatoes are peeled!Published 12 days ago by Dawn Martinez
Good for baked potatoes. Bakes in half the time than just wrapping in a paper towel and keeps it from drying out, more like an oven baked potato.Published 22 days ago by Paula
Excellent Product. Once you use it, you never go back cooking potatoes old-way. I bought 10 to give away to my relatives here and in India.Published 1 month ago by CB
