And this, people, is how you make the perfect baked potato.
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Scrub your potato with a brush, then pat dry. Using a knife, make several small slices all over the potato, to keep it from exploding while in the oven. Rub with a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.
Place directly on the oven rack (I use the top one) and bake until the inside of the potato reaches 210ºF. I usually set my timer for 45 minutes, and go from there. Depending on the size of the potato, it generally takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour.
