One Serious Piece of Kitchen Equipment
We make lots of fries by baking them in the oven to keep them more healthful than the greasy ones you can buy in the store. Cutting them up by hand was time consuming and inconsistent, so we bought one of these to see what it could do.
This thing cuts serious french fries with no problems. We can cut enough fries in 30 seconds to feed four people (about 8 or 9 potatoes). It takes longer to peel the potatoes than it does to cut them. It also takes longer to clean out the cutter than it does to cut the potatoes. But anyway, the cutter does a great job.
Be advised that I had to screw this thing down to an oak board to keep it stabilized for cutting. You don't want to try working this just sitting on the counter top because it takes quite a pull to push the potatoes through. I clamp the board to the kitchen counter with a C clamp and it works great. This is not a flimsy toy but a serious machine. It weighs 15 pounds, probably 20 including the oak plank.
It takes a hefty pull to push the potatoes through the cutters, but it isn't difficult once you get the knack of it. If you make lots of fries, this machine will get the job done.
I bought this Universal French Fry Cutter 0.5" [FFC-050] cutter from Elite Restaurant Equipment. They also have additional cutters available in case you need other sizes. You can get additional cutters for 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch fries as well. The cutters are easily interchangeable using a standard phillps screwdriver.
This is a somewhat expensive kitchen appliance, but you get what you pay for. I read too many reviews telling how the cheaper cutters simply break right away. That won't happen with this one, because it is made of metal not some cheap plastic.Posted on 6/13/13 by Joe Russo
