I guess after you've fried the outside of your hands enough it develops an armor?

He said that he never felt pain in the first place.

 

I wonder if he's frying-oil proof all over. He coulda been a super hero!!

 

Fry Guy!

He needs a costume that conveys his awesome super power!

Although check out his vat.
How much is oil vs all the burned batter floating around.
That will for sure lower the ambient temp, no?

I am not even allowed to hand wash dishes at my house.
Cannot get the water hot enuf to do any good.
Can however dip finger and taste when something is cooking on stovetop.
Not that I would ever stick my fingers into a common vessel just cuz I am too lazy to wash another spoon rolleyes.gif

I think I could make tea with the hot water from my sink, but I'm a wus when it comes to heat and my hands. Ive been cooking for a while now (not 100 dinners a night) and I've never seriously burned myself - knock on wood - but I have chopped off the top of an occasional finger, though. I do in fact stick my finger in carbonara to test the temp. If I can't stand it it's too hot to temper the egg and will scramble, but this guy is just showboating. It's his gimmick to get customers because nobody in their right mind would use a hand when tongs are available.

 

He says he wants his son to carry on the tradition. Can you imagine? "Hey kid, c'mere. Stick your hand in this vat of boiling oil. You'll get used to it!!"

Not thith little black duck . . . :eek: 

 

I remember a newbie dropped his tongs in the fryer once and I caught him before he went in after them.  Gut instinct I suppose, but it could have been ugly.  He learned.

I have heat proof hands. I get splashed with oil I just wipe it off and keep going. When I worked fast food I used my fingers to pull burgers off the flat top at 375 degrees with no issues.

+1 this. Not totally heat proof but I'm getting there. I can dip up to my second knuckle without it feeling to hot. I agree with kuan that it's some kind of nerve damage, although I feel no decreased sensitivity.
I worked with this really old guy at a bar and grill ages ago who would pull plates out of a 500 degree oven and transfer two steps to a cutting board. He'd even stop sometimes and look at something, totally unphased. Chuck. That guy was awesome.
Also that guy in the first video kinda builds up a batter layer on his fingers which I'm sure helps.

On occasion I use my fingers to flip bacon slices. And I am not Edward Scissorhands.

Oh, did Kuan say that? :rolleyes:

I've been able to take hot on my hands for years now, but not like that. (maybe someday)

I can pull stuff of the flattop bare handed all day....the trick is to alternate hands and fingers. 

I get a kick out of a server delivering my plates while I'm dining, with potholders telling me,

"be real careful, plate is very hot" as I take the plate casually with my bare hands and gently set it down. lol

Need a cheater towel and that my friends impresses no one.
Bad form decreases the gratuity lol.
