      I saw this recipe on their TV show and had to try them. I was surprised at how terrific they turned out!
      I also read somewhere that these fries were tested after cooking and they were lower in oil content than the "hot oil" method of cooking fries.

      My family loves these and they are so easy to make. They really do turn out crispy.

      Be warned that some Yukon gold potatoes are sweeter than others so you may get a slightly sweet fry. Some people prefer these with regular old russets.

      These were awesome! I saw the episode also. It very much intriqued me! Was happy to find it here. I read a review on another site that said theirs burned. I made sure when mine got to a heavy rolling boil, I turned it back to about medium high and it was Still at a good rolling boil. They turned out perfect and I don't usually make fried foods. My picky son was even asking when I was going to make these again. So much easier not having to worry about the temperature of the oil. Thanks for posting this!

      Really easy to make! I use a 7qt enameled cast iron pot and add just enough oil to cover however many potatoes I use.

      100% effective. This recipe makes great french fries super easy and quick. The only problem is that I will probably eat more french fries now.

      I used an electric skillet at 375 and 10 cent a pound russet potatoes that I rinsed and dried. I used enough oil to just cover the fries and made sure it was one layer of potatoes, no overlapping. There was no sticking at all. These fries were amazing. They remained crispy even after they cooled off and weren't tough at all.
