1 butter knife
Wash your potato and scrub off all the dirt. Put potato onto a clean plate. Prick all sides of the potato with your fork. Don't do this too deep. Then put the potato in the microwave for 3 minutes. Then stab with fork. If the fork goes in really easily all the way through, the potato is done. But if it still is pretty hard, put it back in the microwave. When soft and cooked, cut in half with butter knife. Then with the knife, cut out a little piece of butter and spread it on both of the halves.
