          The only use for sour cream is to bake a cake. You would think I would like it, being a Mexican who eats a lot of home cooked Mexican food, but sour cream ruins everything you put it on.

            Theory about the “food scientist.” #1. The other woman’s name was shown when she started her explanations. It said she is a professor of food science at Drexel University. Therefore, she probably didn’t have anymore time due to either a teaching or research schedule. #2. The current “food scientist” is more than likely an actor. She’s clearly reading from a teleprompter, and there is no introduction graphic with her name and official title. Plus, she’s younger, maybe to make the show appealing to a younger demographic.

                          I just throw my fries in a potato slicer and then into the air fryer with salt it has a fry setting which takes 20 muinites but because it's big enough I can also throw a chicken breast in there and it takes the same amount of time so boom dinner in 20 with little to no effort

                                          Does not understand the definition of osmosis. Osmosis is about movement of water through a semi-permeable membrane from a high to low water potential area (i.e. from less salt to more salty). Why people throw scientific terms and not understand them.

                                                    This level 3 was eh. First she doesn't know what diffusion is and calls it osmosis, which is amazingly funny by the way. Then she makes an apple sauce for fries. And her fries take 5 days to ferment, which for a quick snack is ridiculous. Idk who wants tangy fries, but most people eat fries because they are sweet and salty. Not fermented and tangy. Plus the ketchup queen Emily wasn't in this one? At least the level 1 and 2 chiefs this time seemed solid, but boy was level 3 a mess, sounds like 10 years isn't enough.

                                                            Quick note, osmosis is molecules of a solvent (water in this case), not of a solute (salt in this case), passing through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one. So, in this example, it would be water going from more salty to less salty solution, not salt going from more salty to less salty solution. The latter is diffusion, not osmosis. It's a common misunderstanding of the phenomenon.

Fries should never be thicker than McD's size and only chef 3 got that right. And fries shouldn't be covered with anything, especially nasty nacho cheese. Serve them with a good quality ketchup or aioli and that's it.
