I am going to go with a sliced potato. The surface area of the sliced potato is larger, letting more heat enter the slice at a greater speed.

Putting a whole potato in boiling oil will give you something inedible, and it may explode and splash boiling oil all over the place. Please take Home Ec. You need it for your own personal safety.
