Perfect. Absolutely delicious!

I so agree that this is the BEST EVER way to get the perfect baked potato. X-virgin olive oil and sea salt to bake. And when I wrapped it in foil I also added butter to the outside like my dad always does. For my toppings I had just about everything. Butter, and shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese to melt inside, then chopped turkey bacon, sour cream, and Tajin classico seasoning with lime. WONDERFUL! BEAUTIFUL! LOVE IT! Thank-you.

So simple yet so good! I took a reviewer's tip and used salt on the skin in addition to the oil rub.
