Delicious hash browns are ridiculously easy to make at home. So skip the diner and save your money—use this salad spinner trick instead to make crispy and seasoned hash browns quickly and with ease.
Spinning will only get rid of surface water – it won’t compress the potatoes hard enough to squeeze any out. I usually press between layers of paper towel. I also pre-microwave the potatoes for a minute so that I can crank the heat up higher in the skillet without worrying about undercooked insides. That gives a boost to the crispiness too.
