Boiled potatoes

1.5 l Water

1 kg Potatoes

1 tbsp. Salt


Prepare the potatoes

Pour a minimum of 1.5 litres of water into the pot. This will prevent the water from boiling over during the programs cooking time. The easiest way to do this is to use the measurement lines on the inside of the pot. Clean your potatoes and add them to the pot. Add salt. If the potatoes are not completely covered, then add more water. Choose the programme that best matches your potatoes. If you are unsure if you should choose one or the other of two programs, then choose the one with the longest cooking time. Undercooked potatoes are no fun.
