Potato Express Reviews & Complaints | Microwave Potato Bag

What is Potato Express Seen On TV – A Microwave bag that claims to cook potatoes in 4 minutes.

 

Potatoes are an integral part of almost everyone’s daily food intake no matter in what form. Now the options of potato delicacies are endless with Potato Express Pouch, the smart pouch that you need to place the potatoes in and toss into the microwave to get perfectly baked potatoes in just a few minutes.

 

How does Potato Express Work

The ultimate source of carbohydrates and fats, potatoes are a standalone source of energy amongst veggies. The only problem one faces while cooking them is the guessing game when it comes to the amount of time the potato will take to cook perfectly without being undercooked or overcooked. Also, they take so long to cook that though delectable they are among the most time consuming food options in veggies. But now you can quickly bake them in express speed with Potato Express.

Baking potatoes the right way, both inside and outside in minimum amount of time is the inspiration behind Potato Express, which has the ability to bake potatoes within a record time of only 4 minutes whereas conventional methods can take up to 30 minutes. This magical functioning of Potato Express is due to its innovative technology that uses an insulation design to hold the potatoes inside the pouch.

When heat is distributed via the microwave, the insulation design of Potato Express Bag creates a steamy pocket to provide optimum level of moisture that is required to bake a potato. In this way Potato Express is successful in baking a perfect potato with a tender skin and fluffy inside within no time at all.

Potato Express is large enough to hold up 4 full size potatoes to save more time while cooking for the entire family. It also works even with sweet potatoes and yams delivering a wide variety of choices to eat. Potatoes baked with Potato Express can be topped with sour cream, bacon and cheese, chili, broccoli or marshmallows can be topped over sweet potatoes and yams for a quick scrumptious bite. Potato Express with its cost effective price tag is re-usable for endless amounts of time and is completely machine washable to provide comfortable mess free cleaning.

    Used Potato Express once with medium potato. Potato not done, and corner of bag melted away exposing plastic foam. Would like to have my $10 back. This is a piece of crap, and I am glad I did not order any for my children. Think our state attorney general may be interested.

  2. Arden katz says:

    Bought the product recently. Used to 2 times and the third time I had a kitchen fire! Fire department came and my attached microwave/oven is not useable! Smoke damage and ruined a 3,000.00 dollar unit! House stinks of burnt potato express bag! Warning: DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT! It will catch on fire!

  3. dan says:

    Fortunately, I only paid $1.00 for mine at the thrift store! If it doesn’t work? Oh well, maybe I can fill it with something and make a small pillow!

  4. dick duran says:

    Total disappointment…. how they are allowed to make this claim and sell their crap, is beyond me. Hope people read the reviews… I haven’t seen one that’s says anything but that’s it CRAP

  5. dick duran says:

    It is crap have no idea what it’s suppose to do… but it does nothing. Total waste of money. They should be banned from selling this piece of crap.

  6. Donald Cormier says:

    Very disappointed with Potato Express. Does not live up to what you say it will do.

  7. Ruth Porter says:

    I have ordered several items seen on TV and must admit the Potato Express is the worst. The box did not include a return label and not sure how to send items back.

  8. Fearby Ethridge says:

    I was very disappointed with the Potato Express. The potatoes seemed to take even longer to cook than usual. I ordered it through PCH and had to pay for shipping and handling as well. I would not recommend this product.

  9. Marianne Bykowski says:

    Ok. I’ve read ALL the Potato Express instructions and recipes. You say not to cook on HIGH. But nowhere does it tell you what other setting to use. Come on now. This is a really serious thing to omit. I think you’ll agree that Someone is not taking their job seriously. So what the heck is that person being paid for? I think you could use a new proof reader.

  10. Gwen Link says:

    Would NOT recommend Potato Express. One of the instructions says not to cook on high. I cooked on level 8 and after 6 minutes the potatoes still aren’t cooked. This is one of the two worst products I have purchased due to TV ads. Think twice before you purchase this one

  11. Marcia Jackson says:

    I received the two potato express without the cutter and book. The thing I am most anxious about it that I have been charged $43.98 for the 16.98 item.

    I expect to have my money return immediately.

  12. Janet says:

    After two months, I received not two as advertised, but six potato bags with three slicers. I did reach a young girl that gave me, what seemed to be a rehearsed answer. She said that anyone ordering in November, as I had, may have wanted gifts to give. I complained that I did not want to be responsible for shipping charges, as it was not what I ordered. Of course, she answered they do not have shipping labels. I then asked, if they receive the items and issue me a credit, will shipping credit be applied? Of course not. I don’t know if I am more upset with this “company” or myself. I should have known better.

  13. Patricia Halverson says:

    I ordered 3 sets of Potato Express Dec.2nd it was taken out of our checking account for $71.94 and it is Jan 7th and still have not received it. I have called 4 times now and now they tell me FedEx lost it. Said they are sending me the order again and I should receive it by Jan. 14th 2014 if not I told them I would take this to my attorney.

  14. Ivan Stephens says:

    I submitted an order for a potato express about December 16th, 2013. I received a confirmation # of 7332494, and that it had been shipped via Fec Express on 12-20-2013. I received a Fed Ex Smart Post tracking Number of 92612999989444413065095.

    Fed Ex. states that it has no information on this tracking #, and so far I have not been able to contact anyione from Patoto Express. I have read several comments about this company, including some that say they will contasct the Attorney General, and I do think that might be the way to go to get results from this order.

  15. ken brown says:

    Placed 2 average size potatoes in Potato Express bag/set for 4 minutes on an 1100 watt microwave/was not cooked thru–did 2 large one later/only about 50% cooked after 4 minutes. My bag was bought from Walmart.

    Can the chopper be bought from any site?

    Thank you

  16. Bella Joe McKenzie says:

    What is meant by “HIGH” in the cooking directions where it states “DO NOT HEAT ON HIGH?”

    There is no “high” setting on my microwave oven. Please explain what you mean.

    Saturday, 13 December 2013

    • Katt says:

      Have not used mine yet, the high not high confuses me too. Most microwaves have power settings from 1-10, with 10 being 100% aka high! power level 5 is aka 50%. Hope that helps some on setting temps.

  17. Jan says:

    I purchased my Potato Express at Bed Bath and Beyond for $9.99. I purchase all of the products I see on TV there and use the 20% of coupons. Their coupons never expire, BTW (at least not in CA) I will definately be returning it.

    First, I noticed a strange “Warning” in the recipe book and on the product itself. “DO NOT heat on HIGH.” OK, but the instructions do not say to use any other power setting. Second, as someone else said, there is no way you can get four average potatoes in the bag. I tried. Then I tried 2, for 4 min. They got hot but they were still hard. Gave it another 4 min. Still not cooked. I gave up and cooked all 4 in the microwave.

    It sounded too good to true, and it was.

  18. Sharon says:

    This Potato Express Bag does not work. For one thing, there is no way you can get 4 potatoes into the bag unless they are very small new potatoes. We barely got 2 sweet potatoes in the bag and then they did not cook after 4 minutes. We cooked them an additional 4 minutes and they still were not done. We are sending them back. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT. My husband ordered one in August, 2013 and never received it and never received anything saying it was on back order. We finally received a card in the mail saying that the order was cancelled, but they sent it anyway and charged our account. I ordered one in September, 2013 and finally received it the last of November and we are sending both of them back.

  19. luella taylor says:

    I recently bought a potato express from a catalog supplier. Have not used it yet. Did not receive the recipe book or the free cutter. Guess someone forgot to put them as the package was intact. Please send me another cutter and rest.

    • jean stigers says:

      I just checked my Potato Express status today, they tell me to call another #, 1-877-833-9082, it’s a foreign country. I ask about my order & the people ask me if I want to buy Walmart gift cards & I said no I want to check on my status & they hang up. I did this 3X. Potato Express is a scam, please help.

      • Kathy Shilling says:

        The right Potato Express customer phone number is 877-883-9082. The reason I know this is because I called back the number 800-439-1157 that I placed the order when I called to order. I told them their phone number of 877-833-9082 was not the correct number, they said they would fix that, but the recording still gives the wrong phone number. I just called them today, because my Dad had me order this for him & I was checking the status of my order. I ordered this potato express on 11/06/2013. I was told the order was on back order & will receive it on 12/28/2013. So I guess I will have to wait & see of indeed it does get here or not. If not I will be calling back again. When I placed order on 11/06/2013, I was told 3-6 weeks. Just letting you know about my experience so far & to let you know the right number for customer service again it’s 877-883-9082.

    • dick duran says:

      Hopefully when you get the cutter it works, cause the bag itself sucks, big time

  20. donetta says:

    Does it work or am I just wasting my money???

  21. donetta says:

    So its a scam? ain’t got mine yet they got my money but no Potato Express bag yet.

  22. Pablo Sust says:

    The place is a scam. They enroll in a $24.95/ month program even though you say no. The number given for customer service is in India and they claim the line to be busy then they tell you to call 1 800 555 1212 which is information. I will be referring this company to my State Attorney General. Be aware of this outfit, they don’t seem to have good intentions.

  23. Ezell says:

    Wanted to order but will NOT BECAUSE of the unacceptable and unreal shipping and handling charges.

  24. frankiez says:

    Bought the,” Deluxe”‘ model of Potato Express:two for $30.00,1.00 web processing charge,2.48 tax,13.98 P&H total $47.46.
    Received promptly.

    Attempted to cook two baking potatoes, after 13 minutes removed one potato and cooked the remaining one (in the bag)for another four minutes.

    The one in the bag was cooked except the skin started to look like the one in the video that didn’t look appealing.The one taken out of the bag was cut up and nuked by itself for another minute or so.

    Critique:Good thing I ordered the Deluxe model otherwise two french fries would have been cramped for space.

    Was skeptical about the four minutes to begin with but figured if could cut the time in the oven significantly it would be worth it.For me it is.Live at a high altitude and every thing must cook longer and at a higher temperature e.g. baked pots are 1.5 hours @ 450 degrees.

    Disappointed with Potato Express? Yes.

    Oh,they didn’t send the freebie cutter either.

  25. Customer Service for this product is awful! says:

    Customer Service is a joke for the Potato express product. Absolutely awful!

  26. terry says:

    Doesn’t any one read the small print before ordering… and if any one knows already whether u order online or from a TV ad the shipping is always the SCAM its always no refundable and expensive. That’s why I ALWAYS buy it on eBay.

  27. Michal says:

    I was interested in getting one Potato Express also, but not getting one due to such high S&P seems to be the theme of the reviews. So I went to ebay. There are some other brands of potato bags for as little of $5.99 with free shipping.

  28. Patrick says:

    The question was “Do they think people are crazy”? The answer is they think we are all naive and gullible. You end up paying (on all things like this) for example $23.98 which means you still pay $10 each for them, as their shipping probably is no more than $4 for both, as light as they are. If I can’t order one of something at the regular price with reasonable shipping, I don’t order it. BTW, the baked potatoes wrapped in special plastic as the grocery store for $.98 bake easily in 7 mins. and are great! Some are huge!

    • anita s baker says:

      Please tell those of us who live in Podunk about the potatoes wrapped in the special plastic, They sound like a solution to the potato issue.

  29. Gary Knight says:

    This Potato Express is advertised on TV without important details! The bonus cutting tool is not included without ordering double product. This is not specified in the ad. Double shipping is required $13.98 .. for the bonus and they force you to order a double order! I am disgusted with this double order .. double shipping. It surely can’t cost that much to ship! I will wait until a TV ad is honest! (May never happen)!!!

    • Patrick says:

      I never order anything that says “but wait, we will send you two for this price, just pay separate S&H”. Even if I wanted it, that cancels it right there. That’s a ripoff and a scam. It costs them no more to ship two than one. In other words if it’s $10, and S&H is $6.98, you are paying $8.50 for each one instead of $10. Of course they sell twice as many that way at just a $1.50 discount. Shipping(P&H) is the key here. Don’t fall for it.

    • dick duran says:

      never happen

  30. Mary says:

    I was ready to order one until I saw the shipping charges. I’ll wait until it’s in the stores and not pay shipping and be able to return it if I dont like it!!!

    • sandy says:

      I agree completely with you. If I can’t buy in store & have the option to return if I don’t like without all the shipping charges….then I don’t want it.

  31. SPENCER6 says:

    Someone asked why there are no Potato Express reviews? That is because no one has purchased this item. I was eager to get it until… like the others… I saw the s&h. I would bet this product works but I’ve seen it for sale at most craft fairs. It’s just a cloth sack after all. I’ll pick one up at a fair – or maybe make my own as there are many sites which give step by step instructions!

  32. Kat says:

    I know most infomercial products are scam. I wouldn’t spend $24 on this crap Potato Express.

    Its so easy to cook potatoes in the microwave.

    To begin with you can wash the potato under running water with a vegetable brush. You can also use your hands for washing. You can then pat the potato dry with a paper towel. Once that’s done, you can use a sharp knife to puncture four holes into the potato. This has to be done to stop the potato from exploding when you are cooking it. The holes ensure that steam can escape while cooking.

    After the potato has been prepped for cooking, you can place it on a microwave-safe dish before putting it in the microwave. As a reference point, it’s important to know that a seven to eight ounce potato can take about 7 minutes to cook. Two similar size potatoes can take around 11 minutes. For microwaves with a potato button, it gets as easy as press of the button. It enables the moisture sensors in the microwave to determine the cooking time.

    To finish cooking you can let the potato rest for a few minutes. To know whether the potato is cooked slide a knife into it. If it slides easily then you know the potato is cooked. The potato should be squeezed easily without too much resistance. You can then slice the top with a knife and place a folded paper towel over the potato. Now you can use your fist to give it a bash as that will break apart the fibres. If you squeeze it, you will see that it is nice and fluffy. You can now devour it on its own or after adding your favourite toppings.

    • Martin says:

      Hi Kat,
      I saw the Potato Express today in the As Seen on TV section at my pharmacy, so I thought I’d check the reviews before dropping ten bucks.

      The reviews convinced me not to bother. But I got a very special bonus coming across your instructions. Your procedure is nicely explained and sounds like a winner; looking forward to doing it myself. Thanks kindly for taking the time to share it!

  33. Anonymous says:

    I also would not pay that much for s&h that is way out of line

  34. Terry says:

    I would not spend $24 for this Potato Express Bag. There is no way you can cook potatoes in 4 minutes.

    • janet s says:

      I also refuse to pay the s&h on this potato express bag of that much.

      I am trying to find reviews on the Potato Express microwave bag. Also hoping to find it soon at Walmart, Walgreens, or Shopko.

      I have cooked 1 small potato in 4 minutes in the microwave but you need to poke it and turn it over after 2 minutes. A larger potato which I like takes about 5-6 minutes and two large potatoes up to 10 minutes.

      However if I leave them in too long without turning over the skin on the bottom of the potato gets rock hard.

      This is what I am hoping to avoid. I am sure that the instructions will tell you if you bake 4 potatoes you need to add more time.

      Also, I bake the potatoes in the microwave when I am in a hurry as I like to take a baked potato for my lunch. They DO NOT have the same flavor of those that the skin is rubbed with soft margarine, wrapped in foil and baked in the oven.

    • dick duran says:

      Put it in their bag… 4 minutes, Nothing. 4 minutes more… nothing. 4 minutes more. Forget it… it’s CRAP

  35. Diane says:

    I completely agree with Brenda. S & H should not be more than the product.

  36. brenda eppinette says:

    I think the Potato Express is a wonderful thing. I was so ready to order one, until I found out the S&H was $13.98. That’s totally unacceptable!! NO THANKS

  37. Potato Express Questions says:

    Have you tried this Potato Express, is it any good?

    Does it really cook potatoes in 4 minutes?

    Does it cook potatoes evenly?

    • ZZ says:

      Why aren’t there any reviews about the Potato Express Bag?

      • larry says:

        Advertised 2-3 weeks delivery. The customer service rep now says 2-3 months and I am still waiting. What a RIP OFF. Especially with the outrageous ship cost. Why does it cost twice as much to ship an extra one? Save your money.

        • Pablo Sust says:

          Customer service is in India, they hang up if you try to cancel the order and when pressed for a real phone number they give you 800 555- 1212 which is information. This Potato Express is a total rip off, I’m going to contact my State’s Attorney General

    • Rachael says:

      Caution: Potatoes may explode in the microwave if no poked, the steam will build up inside the potato and make it go boom.

    • richard jones says:

      Please save your money. The bag does not work. Takes just as long to cook one potato in the bag as it does without the bag. A total waste of money. Also after you get it and read the warnings on the bag you will see that it is a fire hazard.
