    Usually for me it takes about ten minutes.  I pierce them with a knife before butting them in.  These are for large potatoes.  Medium potatoes about 5 minutes.  Small potatoes three.  This is all for baked potatoes.

    If I want to make mashed, I peel them first then put them in a microwave dish-like a Pyrex pan full of water and cook them for fifteen minutes.

    My microwave actually has a potato button, but I think it's about 3 minutes per small-medium potato and 4.5 minutes for one large or two small potatoes. Depending on how stubborn the potato is, you might have to tack on an additional minute at the end.
