A classic potato peeler as we all know them can be very boring and time consuming, but the good thing is that you do not need to resort to one – for there is always an alternative! All you have to do for this great and super simple potato peeling hack is to grab a large kitchen knife and to carefully cut the peel of the potato around the middle area – be careful not to cut through the potato, though, as the peel is the only one that matters right now! Check out the video tutorial below:

Once you have done that with all the potatoes you want to peel, put them into a pan, add some boiling water to it and leave the potatoes to cook. After that, make sure to remove the dirty boiling water and replace it with fresh, super cold water – allow the potatoes to sit and cool down for a few minutes, then all you have to do is to use your fingers and gently pull the skin off the potatoes.
