A medium-sized potato baked with its skin intact is a versatile, low-fat source of dietary fiber and essential nutrients like potassium, copper, iron, manganese, vitamin B-6, vitamin C and niacin. If you're traveling or have limited kitchen space, you can prepare baked potatoes without the use of a conventional oven by using a roaster oven. Roaster ovens are available in a number of sizes, ranging from 5-quart to 18-quart options. The exact procedure and cooking times may vary depending on your brand of roaster oven: Check the manufacturer's instructions before using the appliance to bake potatoes.
