Baked potatoes in crock pot without foil are the best! 

The first time I made crock pot potatoes, I tried them with foil. The second time,  I tried them without the foil. I preferred the potatoes without the foil. There truly wasn’t much of a difference in taste. However, by eliminating the foil it makes it more frugal friendly! 🙂

How long does it take to cook potatoes in a slow cooker?

Typically it takes about 8-10 hours on low to cook the potatoes. This will vary based on the size of the potatoes and how many you put in the slow cooker. If you have large potatoes, it will vary.

You can also cook on high if you have less time.

How to bake potatoes in crock pot:

1. Wash the potatoes and let dry.

2. Poke each potato with a fork a few times. Rub each with oil, then salt. You can wrap in foil, but I actually prefer it when I don’t wrap in foil.

My tip: I just put a little olive oil in my palm and go to town on each potato. It doesn’t take much.

3. Place the oiled potatoes in the crockpot (do not add any liquids) and cook on low for about 8 to 10 hours.

  1. 5 stars
    I have baked potatoes in my crock pot without the oil, and certainly without the aluminum foil touching the food. (one cause of Alzheimer’s) and they are just as great. I have also done sweet potatoes, turnips, baby bok choy, etc I fact I have my crock pot going every day with something in it. Bon appetit !

  2. can you stack multiple layers of potatoes? or do they have to be one layer on the bottom of the crock?

  3. Picture has only 4 potatoes. How many potatoes can be cooked at same time? Can the potatoes be stacked full in pot?

  4. I have tried a similar recipe and used foil, it was horrible. The recipe I used said it would be crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, not so. I will try your recipe without foil and let you know if it turns out better or different from my first experience.. thank you

  5. Yes, I stack the potatoes all the time and don’t have an issue. You can cook them on high for 4-5 hours. Thank you!
