Easy hack to peel potato’s skin without a peeler goes viral

This spud’s for you!

A great kitchen hack that shows how to remove the skin of a potato without using a peeler at all has gone viral, with many wondering why it’s not the go-to method for peeling taters already.

“How easy is that?” TikToker @quitmyjob says in a clip viewed 22 million times since it was posted last week.

The trick is to first make a circular slit on the tater’s midsection before boiling and then, by hand, the skin should come right off when pulled from the pot. And good news, because the tactic works with sweet potatoes, too.

“I saw this hack years ago and am baffled how it hasn’t caught on yet. It’s the only useful hack I’ve learned from the internet,” one user commented.

“You mean to tell me I been peeling potatoes for 40 years and I could been doing this,” added another.

However, some were quick to critique that handling scalding hot potatoes that were just boiled is less than pleasant.

Fortunately, another life-easing expert, known on social media as The Gooch, came up with a cool solution for such matters.

In an Instagram video, he first uses kitchen shears to make the circumference cut — known as scoring — before boiling his big potato and then dumps it into a measuring cup filled with ice water before attempting to peel.

“Perfectly peeled potatoes. You’re welcome,” he bragged.

Other recent social media hacks in the kitchen include ways to use kitchen shears to open things like walnuts and water bottles, ways to get the very last drop of your ketchup, and some nifty ways to boost the lifespan of avocados.
