  • 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.

    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.

    When you put the potatoes in the mixer for mashed potatoes my brain went totally "nooo" cause well that´s what wer in Germany call "Tapetenkleister" (glue for tapestries) as it is just that on stzickiness, consistency and taste. that´s one way to NOT make mashed potatoes^^ food processor same but our "Kartoffelpürre" is kinda like the pommes pure´ just with hand mashed potatoes not riced (well depends on preferances i like them more chunky) and not THAT much fat. my mum used to mash the potatoes put them back into the pot they were cooked in and add milk, butter and depending on the dish muscat for seasoning.
    And Microwave really? it´s this stupid it just might work (although i literally expected the potato to go boom) and haven´t you learned yet, that the dehydrator is satan´s offspring^^ i´m shocked the rotisserie didn´t butcher it this time^^ and foiled potato on a grill. Just some salt and thyme in there and god they are delicious.however they go with the coal usually. at least that´s how we used to do them in summer. (works brilliantly with big mushrooms too. obviously thyme isn´t the way to go there)

    these vids are pretty entertaining but i can never shake the feeling that BA is in bed with some of these products (or maybe even getting paid to make competitor’s products look bad......like why give so much hate to the instant pot or the stand mixer?)
    he also gives more attention (read: seasonings) to the potato in some methods compared to others, and obviously the bland potato is gonna taste worst

    I found most of these helpful as I am not a potato fanatic, my only criticism would be if you are going to use a stand mixer the setting and potato mater a lot more. for example, red potatoes work much better (in my opinion) as mashed potatoes having a very smooth texture and they are also more comparable in size to a reset potato, also consider adding milk. however, these are only recommendations based on my opinion.

    The pickled electrocuted potato didn’t cook at all because the acid ions in the vinegar conduct electricity better.
    Heat and burning from electricity is caused by resistance (like friction in mechanical physics), so poorer conductors will burn and cook more than good conductors.
