[CnD] fries not cooking properly

These sound wonderful!

As I don't have a steamer, can you tell me a good brand for a small one, big enough to make these in?  Also, I know you can steam veggies.  Do you cook other things in there?

Thanks,

Deb B.

The recipe I'm pasting below is more complicated than making "oven fries," but the results are spectacular!

Serves 4 to 6
2pounds baking potatoes, such as Idaho russets or Bintje, peeled and cut into thick fries, 3/4 inch by 3 inches
2 to 3tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil  Fine sea salt to taste 1.  Preheat the oven to 500٠ F. Bring 1 quart of water to a simmer in the bottom of a steamer. Place the potatoes on the steaming rack, place the rack in the steamer, cover, and steam just until a knife inserted in a potato comes away clean, 10 to
12 minutes. (The potatoes should not be cooked through, or they will tend to fall
apart.)
2.  Transfer the steamed potatoes to a bowl and drizzle with oil.
Carefully toss to
coat evenly with oil. (The potatoes can be prepared to this point several hours in advance. Set aside at room temperature.) 3.  With a large slotted spoon, transfer the potatoes in a single layer to a nonstick baking sheet. Discard any excess oil or liquid. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake, turning so they brown evenly, until the potatoes are crisp and deep golden brown, 10 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, season generously with salt, and serve immediately.
