baked russet potatoes: what is the function of oil and foil?

Citizen_Snips | Nov 28, 2013 11:47 PM

I see some baked russet potato recipies that call for coating the potato in oil before baking, while others say to coat the potato in foil. Some recipies call for both.

What effect do each of these components, oil and foil, have on the potato?
