The good: Great price, powerful suction stays in place on any counter top, the blades are sharp and the pushing motion is easy.
The Bad: Doesn't have an interchangeable blade so it only cuts thick fries - I do not understand this. It seems such an inexpensive and logical inclusion. The opening for the potatoes is laughably small. Every potato had to be cut to fit the opening. No french fry will be longer than 2.5-3inches.
Conclusion: If you like short and thick fries, and don't mind first cutting the potatoes to fit the opening in the cutter, this is a great value at $25 versus $70+ for higher end and easier to use models
This has to be by far the worse product I have ever bought in recent years. The blades broke, twisted the first time I used it to produce sweet potato fries. I bought it because the description SPECIFICALLY stated it cut sweet potato fries. the unit was thrown out after its first use!!!
The operation is a cinch once you learn a simple lesson. You have to hold down the top of the insert that holds the blades at the same time that you press the arm down. If you don't the potato (sweet or white) can shift and bend the blade rather than passing easily through the blades. I bent one of the cross-blades and haven't been able to straighten. I have found I can continue to use it though I would love to get a new blade insert to clear the slate. I don't know if it is possible to get this replacement part. Two product suggestions: 1. Add a message on the box or embossed in the top of the blade insert that says "Press the blade insert as you press the level down." 2. Include a second blade insert, perhaps with a different cutting size to provide a backup and size choice as requested by another customer's comment.
