Although it’s in Japanese, if I understand correctly you just make a small cut through the skin around then entire potato, then boil it, drop it in ice water for 10 seconds, pull it out and slip the skin right off. Amazing time saver.
Wonder if it works in the microwave as well?
@Simon It is a time-saver on the peeling part — from 30 to 2 seconds is nice. You can then use those extra 28 seconds to start cleaning the pot you boiled the potato in, rinsing out the pan of ice water you dunked it in, then paying the electric/gas bill used to power the stove and ice-maker.
Is it really a time saver when you consider you have to boil it, then put it in ice water, then actually do the peeling and THEN you can do whatever you intended to do with it?
Yes, you save time on peeling. Congrats. Now go take care of that water bowl…
