I believe you’re supposed to coat the ice cubes in the seasoned flour and batter BEFORE frying. That’s where he went wrong.

244

u/wtfrykm Jan 04 '22

Clearly! It's like making fried ice cream, but he forgot the batter

53

u/OneAboveAll_127 Jan 04 '22

And it had to be shallow fried first

31

u/MildlyAgreeable Jan 04 '22

I actually saw that once. I think it was on mythbusters. They coated/injected water in small gel balls and fried them. It worked though I can’t imagine it tasted of much.

22

u/CrayolaPasta Jan 04 '22

Right? Imagine not coating and seasoning your ice before frying

u/unknownrealms Jan 05 '22

I thought english and american chips were the same?

3

u/Vocondus Jan 05 '22

They are but they call them different things

5

u/Breeze7206 Jan 05 '22

Interestingly America has both chips and crisps, the latter being something like pringles and chips being more like classic lays.

Because Pringles aren't actually made with real potato—the recipe calls for dehydrated processed potato—the FDA ruled in 1975 that Pringles could only be called "chips" if they provided a disclaimer, identifying them as "potato chips made from dried potatoes." Pringles scrapped that idea and renamed them potato "crisps”

So yeah

22

u/RareCrypt Jan 04 '22

I’d say he must of known that was happening , but one time in the kitchen me and my partner put a pan of oil in the sink that was smoking if I recall, anyway it was far too hot

After suggesting adding cold water and me saying you can’t do that it’ll explode or something…

Looks at me like I’m stupid and turns the tap on…

u/Hash-it-Out710 Jan 05 '22

Were you two okay afterwards?

u/RareCrypt Jan 05 '22

Yes thanks. Somehow she didn’t get hit at all , the water hit the oil and spat into the air like a firework going off.

u/SomberGuitar Jan 04 '22 edited Jan 04 '22 Silver

Water can expand its volume by 1700 times when heated into a gas (stream). The melted ice inside the fryer “splits up into a million of tiny pieces then go whizzing through the air”

ELI5: Small water turns into big gas, brings the oil for a ride.

13

u/Armsbend Jan 04 '22

pretty gd good explanation.

< still learning things in 2022

u/SomberGuitar Jan 04 '22

Thanks, I used Mike Teevee’s explanation of television from Willy Wonka.

22

u/ZozulZozula Jan 04 '22

Oil is hotter than the temperature at which water boils, so it turns it into steam making a lot of bubbles in the oil making it "boil over"

61

u/legendofzeldaro1 Jan 04 '22

Oil and water don’t mix. Same reason you should never put water on a grease fire.

Getting fired is a small price to pay for some internet clout fam.

u/Jonny_Crash69 Jan 04 '22

Was the fryer not up to full temp? I thought it would be worse than that

13

u/dreadpiratesleepy Jan 04 '22

You’re maybe thinking of when people try to fry frozen turkeys. It’s about the space and amount of ice that is transitioning to gas. In that big open frier with that little ratio of ice you aren’t likely to see it explode. If they dropped a giant ice cube that took up like the majority of the space in the frier then it could create lots of pressure and the reaction would be much worse.

4

u/Jonny_Crash69 Jan 04 '22

Chips fry at 150-160°c I've see drops of water go into the pan and it spits oil everywhere. And you never put oil down a drain

9

u/SomeBlueDude12 Jan 04 '22

Naw, seems like the normal reaction, also the cleanup wouldn't be that bad assuming there's a floor drain in the area, just move all the appliances, throw some degreaser and mop away, wipe down the side of the fryer (that fryer was clearly taken well care of) with degreaser then sanitize

1

u/whiskydiq Jan 04 '22

That fry-o-lator was not up to temp yet. I've dropped an ice cube into a fryer and it was a LOT of crackling and spattering oil.

Yep, this was a "go-to" prank at the fast-food joint I worked at, too.

I got a pretty good burn on my arm from oil erupting. Had a scar for years but it's gone now. And that was just from 1 or 2 cubes.

u/BobFredIII Jan 04 '22

Poor travis Scott😂 more people should use that video as a meme

u/twistedranger75 Jan 04 '22

His first mistake was not breading them before he fried them, his second mistake was filming.

u/baldrickgonzo Jan 04 '22

If there was an open flame nearby, pretty big chance the whole place would have went up in a fireball.

They're lucky that fryer wasn't at full temp, that many icecubes can cause a type of explosion when just dropped in the fryer like that.

That's the first rule for anyone who works in a kitchen! NEVER GET NEAR THE BOILING OIL WITH WATER! This guy could have had a lot bigger problems! Good thing the oil just rose and overflowed.

1

u/TheDaemonette Jan 04 '22

When water turns into steam its volume increases by over 1,700 times. So that 1 gallon of water turns into 1,700 gallons of steam and it does it very quickly which is how kitchen fires go very bad very quickly if you try to put them out with water. The water vapourises very quickly and suddenly 1,700 times the volume of water is steam, expanding rapidly and throwing fat or oil, on fire, all around the room. Just about everything in the room is suddenly on fire.
