Baked sweet potato pot specificationsFirst, we will explain the specifications of the baked sweet potato pot.
Roughness of the bottom of the pan
The roughness of the bottom of the pan allows heat convection and ensures that the food is evenly heated all the way to the bottom.
The heat from the stove fire goes directly into the pot through the chimney in the center of the pot. This keeps the inside of the pot at a high temperature, which makes the baked sweet potato fluffy.
The steam vent allows moisture in the pot to escape, preventing the food from becoming soggy and making the food fluffier.
How to make baked sweet potatoes
The following are the steps for making baked sweet potatoes using a baked sweet potato pot.
Wash sweet potatoes
To begin, wash the sweet potatoes thoroughly under running water to remove dirt, stains, etc. Do not drain off the water, but leave them moderately moist. This makes it easier for the baked sweet potato to become moist and fluffy.
Cut into appropriate sizes
Cut the sweet potatoes into pieces just large enough to fit in the baked sweet potato pan. Sweet potatoes that are small enough to fit whole in the pot do not need to be cut. Nor do they need to be peeled.
Heat in a baked sweet potato pot
After putting the sweet potatoes in the pot so that the skin touches the roughness of the baked sweet potato pan, cover and cook over low to medium heat.
Cook for 10 minutes, and once the sweet potatoes are fragrant, open the lid and turn each sweet potato over. Cook both sides together for 20 minutes, and the sweet potato is done when a bamboo skewer easily enters the sweet potato.
For dishes other than baked sweet potatoes
In addition to sweet potatoes, the baked sweet potato pot can be used to bake a variety of other vegetables and fruits, including apples, corn, potatoes, onions, and carrots. Enjoy grilled vegetables and grilled fruits using your favorite vegetables and fruits.
