There’s no more straightforward or faster way to cook this staple than in the microwave. Steam them as a shortcut before air frying or broiling, or eat them directly with toppings, “baked” potato-style.
All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

- Rinse and cut in half. Place in an Anyday dish and cover with the lid (knob lifted).
- Cook in the microwave for the time listed in the table, or until potatoes are fork-tender. Flip halfway through the cook time for even cooking.
- The leftover moisture after rinsing helps the potatoes steam.
- Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper for a quick side dish.
