Quickly stirring the shredded potatoes in
salted water and then squeezing out all liquid
prevents them from oxidizing.

1. Put the water and 2 teaspoons of salt into a
medium mixing bowl. Whisk until salt is fully
dissolved; reserve.
2. Shred the potatoes to a medium thickness,
using either a medium shredding disc of a
Cuisinart® Food Processor or a box grater.
Immediately transfer to the salted water
and stir a few times. Drain and then put into a tea towel or dish towel and squeeze out
all water.
3. Put the squeezed potatoes into a mixing
bowl and toss with the remaining pinch of
salt, pepper and 3 tablespoons of the oil.
4. Turn on the Cuisinart® Smoke-less Contact
Griddler®. Select Grill/Griddle and set to
5 Once preheated, brush the plates with
additional oil and then, using a ¼-cup scoop
or measuring cup, dollop the seasoned
potatoes onto the hot, oiled griddle, 4
scoops per side, and select the countup timer. Flatten slightly with a heatproof
spatula. Brush the tops with additional oil
and allow to cook until bottoms are browned
and crispy, about 6 to 8 minutes. Carefully
flip each hash brown and cook on the
opposite side until very crispy, an additional
8 minutes.
6. Remove and transfer to a wire rack to
maintain crispiness while cooking next batch
of potatoes.
