Commonly Asked Questions

Why do you soak potatoes in water before frying?

Since potatoes are starchy vegetables, soaking them in water before cooking removes the excess starch. Doing this prevents the fries from sticking during cooking and helps to achieve that golden brown crispiness you’d look for in every bite.

How do you keep the steak fries hot and crispy?

To keep your freshly cooked steak fries hot and crispy before serving, you can try placing them on a cooling rack set over a baking sheet.
