Does It Work: The Potato Express

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Chad Gensler is a bachelor who works long hours and hasn't quite mastered the art of cooking.

"I've ruined mac and cheese before," said Gensler.

So we thought he'd be perfect to test the Potato Express, considering most his meals come out of the microwave.

"Fast and easy. I work a lot. I want to get home and eat within 2 to 3 minutes," said Gensler.

This potato pocket only takes about 4 minutes to take your spud from raw to ready.

The prep is easy. You don't have to peel or poke, just place in the pouch and have a little patience.

And the results are "pretty good," according to Gensler. "That's perfect. Four minutes and it tastes like it came out of the oven."

"Potato Express's secret is the unique insulation design that creates a steam pocket with just the right amount of moisture," according to the product's television advertisement.

"Four minutes is way better than 45 minutes. Are you kidding me? Come home from work -- baked potato. I can actually eat a little bit healthy," said Gensler.

The potato express holds up to four potatoes and comes with a recipe book full of ideas. It sells for $9.99.

"I would give it a B+," said Gensler.
