This method will prevent the potatoes from drying out and from cooking unevenly. They will turn out just as if they were boiled.
When I used to microwave potatoes, even if I turned them over midway through cooking, they'd still have dry areas or watery areas. So I added some water to steam them.
Be careful not to burn yourself!When microwaving, make sure the water doesn't evaporate.
