Potato/Vegetable Cooking Pouch for Microwaves

The TATERBAKER is a microwavable cloth pouch for cooking all varieties of potatoes and a large assortment of vegetables such as corn on the cob, cauliflower, artichoke, broccoli, carrots, baked apple, winter squash, yams plus many more. It may also be utilized to warm bread and pastries.

The microwave is made to cook from the inside to the outside of food. This drives the moisture out of food while cooking. Using the TATERBAKER allows moisture to remain in the pouch. This keeps a moisture balance for food to remain moist and also retains the nutrients, natural flavor and texture of food being cooked.

Your competition is both the people who provide similar services as you, and also all the other flat promotions that people are bombarded with day in and day out.
