    Hi, what type of potatoes do u get the best results with? I’ve tried making similar potato fries in the past and not had the best results but would love to try again:)

      Hi, Yelena. Any potatoes will work, really. The key is making sure you rinse the potatoes, which removed all that starch and patting the potatoes completely dry so they become crispy as they are cooked. I’d love to hear feedback if you try the fries. 🙂
