How do I find instantaneous rate of change?

In my case, I am heating a potato in the oven and I would like to find the rate of change in The internal temperature of the potato. My goal is to get the internal temperature up to an optimal temperature without having to check on the oven often. How can I use calculus to find the rate of change? How do I get my function?

    If you have a function showing the internal temperature over time, you'd get the first derivative of that function to get a new function of your rates of change in respect to time.
