Cooking Hack: How to Make the Perfect Chicken Roast Using a Hair Dryer

Do you want to make the perfect roast chicken at home? The secret to preparing the meal that your whole family and gang cannot resist has been unraveled. Go, prepare the necessary ingredients. Aside from the chicken that would be roasted, of course. And don’t forget to bring in the most valuable player in the roast chicken preparation: a hair dryer, if it happens to be an expensive $400 brand, the better.

The “secret weapon” idea to the perfect chicken roast was shared by food writer for the New Yorker Helen Rosner who gave a blow-by-blow account online on how she makes her own version of the meal. First off, she said she uses a $400 Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer to blow-dry a whole chicken.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Hello, gorgeous <a href="https://t.co/pIFyganrBM">pic.twitter.com/pIFyganrBM</a></p>&mdash; Woman (@hels) <a href="https://twitter.com/hels/status/976512051198734344?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 21, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Rosner wrote in her post: “Happy snow day, I am using an astonishingly expensive hair dryer to remove all moisture from a chicken to maximize skin crispiness when I roast it. “

Followers have become obsessed with Rosner’s idea of using her costly hair dryer on the chicken before achieving the perfect roast. She explained to Allure further why the hair dryer is the all-important tool in preparing the meal that is a favorite in many homes. Rosner elaborated: “For crisp skin, whether you’re cooking a chicken or a duck or a fish, you want there to be as little water moisture as possible, which is sped up by a fan. And that’s all a hair-dryer really is- a hand-held fan that you can pretty easily bring into the kitchen.”

There are those who followed Rosner’s lead and tried the process themselves and turned to Twitter to proclaim their satisfaction with the blow-dried chicken roast, and to thank the food writer.

There are also those who took to Twitter to make fun of Rosner’s now famous hair dryer for chicken roast post.

Rosner even likens the process of using a hair dryer on chicken to Food Network star Alton Brown using a box fan to make beef jerky.

Rosner claims no credit, however, for the “genius” of a concept of using a hair dryer on chicken. She would be the first to admit that cookbook author Marcella Hazan as the “progenitor of the idea” in the 1970s. Rosner only elevated the concept to new heights with her use of an expensive brand, the very thing that captured the interest and amusement of followers and social media users.

While Rosner swears by her $400 dryer, she shared, however, that for practicality’s sake and for easier access by many, just about any ordinary dryer can also do the job of taking care of the extra moisture of chicken before having it roasted to perfection.

What an expensive impractical choice that overrated New Yorker food writer proposes. Oh well, what to expect? She's a Democrat! Chicken will always be delicious even if you just roast it straight. Too fancy for a common dish. She just wants a piece of the limelight.

Stupid idea by that Rosner woman. What if the hair dryer is dirty from the dust and dirt it may have accumulated from other use such as obviously fir hair drying? Imagine all tgat dirt going to the chicken you'll gonna eat? Oh no thanks!
