How long for 26 potatoes?

Making a lot for a team tonight.

What temperature and for how long if I have 26 potatoes in the oven?


Hello Bonnie,

For 26 potatoes you will need to bake them at 375 degrees Fahrenheit (191° C) for about 1 hour or until they are tender.

If you rub the potatoes with just a few drops of olive oil and a pinch of salt they will have a crispy skin.

How much time do I have need to bake 40 potatoes at once?

I have to cook 40 potatoes for an event. I need to know how long I will have to cook the potatoes. In a gas oven, large sized.



Baking 40 potatoes will take about 1 hour. It is very important to preheat the oven.

Bake the potatoes for 30 minutes, then turn the potatoes, and keep baking for another 30 minutes or until they are soft and tender.

Length of time to bake lots of potatoes?

by Donna
(Houston, TX)

I need to bake 13 medium sized Russet potatoes today in one oven. If I bake at 350 degrees F, how long should it take.


Hello Donna,

If you bake 13 Russet potatoes at 350 degrees F (177° C), they will be ready in about 1 hour, 30 minutes.

Another option is to cook them in the microwave for about 3 to 5 minutes, then put the potatoes in your preheated oven and bake for about 1 hour or until potatoes are tender.
