I have tried the sugar water method before, did not notice any difference than just using cold water. I am a fan of Good Eats, and agree with Alton Brown's method of twice frying. I also use his method of starch conversion for hashbrowns. Placing them in a cold environment (in the fridge) over night. I still soak my fries, but i use salt water , then rinse, and a finally use a salad spinner to help dry them.
I then use my fryer at 320F and fry for 5 minutes, drain on paper towels, and cool until close to room temperature. Then i fry again at 350F until golden and crisp.
