Ah, the Japanese. Some are stupid and peel potatoes with their fingernails (WTF?) and some are wise and peel them with...boiling water and cold water. And to think we Americans use peelers.

I hate people that can`t REFRAIN from RACIAL slurs, too.
By the way, what were the Japs doing with the potatoes, anyway. Leave the potatoes to the stinkin` drunk Irish.

Also, burnteffigy, I think the point is that they wanted cooked potatoes (for potato salad) so they weren`t boiling up the water just to skin them. I totally think it would be easier to do it this way than peel them raw. And yes, it did remind me of the famous shirt-folding video!

"chinks"? "Chinks?" Thanks for throwing in that ignorant racist slur when saying "I challenge them to a duel!" would have been just as effective, SammyFrank, you moron.

i think they put it in hot water first then ice water. coz then it will expand (as shown in their little diagram) and then contract in the cold.

That looked like the same people that showed how to fold your shirts like they do in hotels.

i`ve been doing that for years. it`s not that amazing.
and you can`t peel a boiled potato w/ a peeler. it`s to soft and it will just make a mess.

I like how it`s just like an infomercial (with the whole I`m-dumb-and-trying-to-peel-with-my-fingers lady), but they`re not trying to SELL you anything...just teach you a technique - that anyone who`s ever done any canning before already knows!

well, if your going to peel multuple potatoes, this is probly good. and burnteffigy, not everybofy has the potatoe peeling skills you do.its really quite hard to do when you dont ever do it. plus i think it is ice water, because the skin shrunk which would need ice.

Didn`t look like boiling water, looked like ice water. Either way I think a peeler would be quicker.

Isn`t it actually quicker to just peel the potato with a peeler...? I mean it only takes about 30 seconds, maybe a minute, to peel a normal-sized potato...but for this you have to get the water boiling, etc. I suppose it would save time if you had a lot of potatoes to peel. Otherwise it just seems silly.

I loved the clip at the begining of the woman trying to peel a potato with her fingernails. Don`t they have potato peelers in Japan? (Or whatever country that is, I`m not sure since I don`t speak the language...)
