The inside temperature of an Idaho Russet Burbank should be exactly 210 degrees Fahrenheit for it to be considered properly cooked. In foodservice, where the baked potato will be kept warm after it comes out of the oven, we recommend setting the internal temperature at 185 degrees Fahrenheit. This is because the potato will continue to cook after it has been removed from the oven.
How do you know when a baked potato is done?
When potatoes are cooked to the point that they are soft when punctured with an implement such as a fork, they are ready to be served. If you can slide the fork out of the potato with little to no resistance, then the potatoes are ready to eat. The interior temperature of a baked potato should reach 98 degrees Celsius, as this is the value that is generally acknowledged.
How long do you cook a baked potato in the oven?
If you want to do this, protect your hands by using an oven mitt or a potholder at all times to avoid getting burned. It is recommended that the potato be roasted at a temperature of 40 degrees for roughly one hour in order to obtain an interior temperature of 98 degrees.
