  • Use new potatoes with young skin so you don't have to peel them
  • If the potatoes are large you may need to microwave them for a few more minutes.
  • Cover with a paper towel that will absorb the steam, a hardcover will condense the water and drop it over the potatoes 
  • To check if they are done, perforate with the pointed knife, it should go through without any problem
  • If you cook them for too long they will crumble when you cut them
  • If you use more than 6 potatoes you need to microwave them for longer, else just do 6 at the time
