  • potatoes that are roughly the same size
  • salt


  1. Wash the potatoes.
  2. Half fill a kettle with water.
  3. Heat the water on maximum heat until it boils a bit.
  4. Add a little bit of salt.
  5. Add potatoes.
  6. Wait it to begin boil a bit again.
  7. Turn the heat down a couple notches, half or 75% of full.
  8. Wait for 20 minutes and then see if the potatoes are ready with a fork or toothpick. If not soft enough, wait in 5 minute increments.

If you want to cook potatoes in a steam kettle, do the same but fill the lower part full with water and add potatoes to the upper part without water.
