Ex-McDonald’s employee reveals ultimate ‘life hack’ to stop crispy fries going soggy
THERE'S nothing worse than digging into your McDonald's meal only to discover your fries have gone soggy.
But an ex employee of the fast-food chain has revealed his ultimate "life hack" which will keep them crispy – and it works every time.
Bruno Bouchet, from Sydney, worked at a store in Brisbane, Australia when he was a teenager – and some 15 years later he still uses the hack.
Dubbing it a "common problem" he said: "When you're in drive-thru, you get given your chips, they end up getting soggy. So I'm going to tell you… the error everyone makes is closing the top of the bag that contains the chips."
Bruno, 35, a Sydney radio host, told KIISFM hosts Kyle and Jackie O: "You'd think if I make it nice and airtight, the heat will keep the chips warm – wrong, what it actually does is it steams the potatoes so you're left with sloppy chips. So you're actually steaming them when you close the bag."
Instead, Bruno said "you need the heat to escape".
He explained: "First things first, bag open. Secondly, you know how the chips are placed upwards in the bag? Put the chips horizontally because that would slow the rate of the heat escaping – it would go out one side rather than straight from the top.
"Finally stack the bags so they're horizontally at the bottom – and you put the burgers on top of the chips to keep them warm.
"Let me recap, chips at the bottom, tip them horizontally, burgers on top, let the bag breathe – you'll never have soggy chips ever again in your life, I guarantee it."
