Every Way to Cook a Potato (63 Methods) | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Jun 24, 2019
  • Join editor at large Amiel Stanek as he attempts to cook a potato in almost every way possible. Which method is the best? Is it juiced potatoes? No, it's definitely not juiced potatoes. But maybe it's worth trying because life is for living and it's good for you. Or maybe not, because it is absolutely disgusting.

    How did cold to hot oil work that way? Arent potatoes more prone to absorbing the oil if it's cold? Arent u supposed to use hot oil at all times so that they dont become soggy?

    waist of salt ?
    Salt a mineral... it can be used after you baked it in the over no problem..
    it doesn't really get effected by the heat that a normal oven can produce.
    you need allot more than that weak heat to make salt unusable

    If you’re going to cook something in that cast iron contraption and then cool it off, you need to lessen the time you cook it. Cast iron holds heat really well, and as long as the food is in it, it will continue to cook. I would have cooked the potato for 3 hours instead of 4

    Slow cookers are for when you have a long day ahead of you, you KNOW you have a long day ahead of you, and when you get home you just want to grab dinner and fall asleep halfway through eating it, not spend forty minutes prepping and twenty minutes cooking it... So you set it to cook overtime all day and be piping hot when you get in the door. It was a godsend for my mom before she became unable to work for medical reasons.

    Are all of these potatoes shown in the video cooked (excluding the ones and the very beginning)
    Bone appletea: Well yes, but actually no.
