As a Family and Consumer Sciences teacher, I teach Chemistry of Foods at a large suburban high school west of Chicago. Spud Spikes are one of the three styles of potato nails I own—and they are the best. One set is fairly lightweight flat aluminum and the nails sometimes bend when inserting. The second style has a fairly large head. However, I like Spud Spikes because of their shiny surface and their length. They go in fairly easily, and as long as the potatoes are truly done, they are not difficult to remove. Spud Spikes are the only ones I use now.

Wow, I have been looking in every store for months. I've had a set for many years and depend on them for perfect baked potatoes at home and on the road in our 5th wheel trailer.
