the perfect cooking

How to cook potatoes perfectly, both in the fryer and in the oven, following some simple steps.

Cooking in a fryer

French Fries are one of the most beloved side-dish and it is important to prepare them following some simple instructions. The result will be crispy and light golden tasty potatoes! 


  • Choose the right container and use one fryer or pan for each different ingredient (potatoes, fish or sweets).
  • Choose good quality oil or fat in order to get a nice and tasty frying.
  • Heat the oil at a temperature always between 160 °C and 175 °C.
  • The relationship between food and oil (or fat) shouldn't be more than 1:10. If you use the fryer, for example, do not overfill the frying basket: only fill it halfway.
  • For an optimal cooking, fry the product from frozen.
  • Do not add salt or spices before or when frying.

When Frying

  • Keep the oil temperature between 160 °C and 175 °C.
  • Always follow the cooking instructions written on the package.
  • When deep-frying smaller quantities, reduce the cooking time.


  • After frying, let the oil drip off and shake the frying basket. Use a skimmer if frying in a pan.
  • Put the fries on an absorbent paper before serving.
  • Season to taste and serve.
  • Filter the oil and clean the fryer after using it.
  • Dispose of the oil correctly: one it has cooled, pour the oil in a suitable container and bring it to the recycling stations.
