Nothing wrong with this method if you want to make American fries for breakfast. You can use a greater to slice the potatoes and all you have to do is brown them. Saves a lot of cooking time. You can also package then for later on.

This is more time consuming than using a knife, but it is a fantastic alternative for those of us who have arthritis! Very helpful!

There are some nasty comments on here. It's just a video!

Like Thumper said in the movie, "BAMBI," If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

Just move on to the next thing or website.

I tried this method once, and l did not care for it. It was too messy, and took too long for my liking. I prefer to use my vegetable peeler. I used to use a paring knife, but even my peeler is faster than that, for me anyway.

Potato skins do have nutrition in them, but not all or more than the potatoes.

Seems like it would take longer, more energy (stovetop to boil water & potatoes), and more mess. I could have had these peeled in 1/4th the time or less with a veggie peeler!

i haven't tried this method it looks to messy but if needed could be an option,my other thought would be a video on how not to waste food in the kitchen if you don't have a peeler use a knife and don't waste scraps save them in a bag for later use or leave them on and eat them

The point is a different way to peel a potato. I cannot believe that people are so petty. Don't like it don't do it.

Too bad there's no option to "thumb down" some of these ridiculous comments.

Elaine Cobb~they are put back in the water to reheat them. The potatoes had to cool in order to peel them. Unless it is a russet, I don't peel mine.

The peel is NOT where "all the nutrition and vitamins are, but it does have nutritious value. The whole potato has minerals, and vitamins.

I tried this method and this, in my opinion, is the greatest way to peel a potato. BTW, what do you people mean by "wasting water"? You save the water to reheat the potatoes.

I do not believing in wasting anything. With this technique, 1. Water, 2. Paper, 3. Potatoe skins, 4. Time. And very messy. I will either stick to the old fashion way, or the healthier way and keep the skins on. Umh, it tastes so good...
