What Is The Difference Between No.1 And No. 2 Idaho® Potatoes?

Q: What is the difference between No. 1 and No. 2 Potatoes? A: No. 1 potatoes are typically better shaped with less defects than No. 2's. No. 2 potatoes bake and taste the same but may have pointed ends, more bruising, etc. Restaurant operators use No. 2 potatoes when the final appearance does not have to be as attractive a potato shape, for example for mashed, hash browns or French fries
