How to Peel a Potato With Your Bare Hands

Peeling potatoes takes a lot of time. Special tools can make the task easier, but there are even simpler ways to save time and effort.

5-Minute Crafts is going to tell you how to peel potatoes quickly with your bare hands.

Step № 1

Boil potatoes with the skin still on.


  • If you’re using unwashed potatoes, wash them in advance.
  • If you’re going to fry the potatoes, stop boiling them earlier, so that just the skin layer is boiled.
  • If the skin is too thick, make a not-too-deep cut in the middle and cut the skin around the potato.

Step № 2

Put the boiled potatoes in a bowl of ice water for 5-10 seconds, or until they are cool enough to touch.

Step № 3

Take a potato with both hands and rotate your hands in opposite directions around the potato to remove the skin. The potatoes are peeled!

Note: If the potato is still too hot to touch, use gloves or a cloth.
