This item made fast work of cutting beans for French style green beans.

Fortunately, have a piece that was cut out from the counter for the sink that works just fine.

I had a major problem of it not attaching well to my table and had to hold it the whole time.

Pros: Easier to use than a knife & faster
Cons: The clamp used to hold it to the counter or table is not wide enough. I had to hand hold it, which made it more difficult to use. (My husband is building me a board unit to mount it to.) You can only feed one or two beans at a time. If the bean gets caught in the turning mechanism it shreds it and makes it look like it was attacked with teeth, rather than french cut.

Overall I like using it because it is faster than using a knife, but it does have some design flaws that I would like to see resolved.

I had been looking for awhile for a cast iron frencher and am really pleased with this purchase. I connect it to a my large cutting board and place the unit over my sink. The beans just drop in the bowl that I've placed there. Works great!. Looking forward to this summer's garden.

I got this with high hopes, as we grow beans in our garden and I love them frenched. My mom had a bean frencher, when I was growing up, that was metal and we attached it to the edge of our butcher block table and it worked great! So I was excited to get this. However, it ended up being pretty frustrating. The attachment part only expands to something like 1.5 inches, so it was very hard to find a way to attach it firmly enough so it worked. I ended up clamping a wooden cutting board to the counter by our sink, then attaching the bean frencher to that. It wasn't the greatest solution though, as the torque of frenching the beans pulled the attachment off pretty regularly, so I'd have to stop and readjust the whole setup. It frenched the beans well, though. It takes probably 3 beans at a time, depending on the age and size of the bean. I like to french beans that are too big for normal snapping, so I only did 2 at a time. Otherwise it got stuck. It does reverse easily. I really didn't like that there isn't much of a safety guide on this - it would be pretty easy, if you weren't paying attention, to get your fingers sliced. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like there's much else out there; certainly nothing like what my mom's frencher is like. Ah well, since this works we'll use it...

I have seen the identical product for years in traditional seed catalogues for nearly $30. At $13.70. this was a real bargain. More importantly - it really works! I have read some concerns about having it jam or not feed properly. It appears to me that is a result of putting to many beans in the feeder at one time. I've used various hand frenchers and find that many bean pods are too limp to feed easily as you push them through. This device pulls the beans through. Problem solved! I do wish the clamp were wider than 1.25 inches, since that requires that I attach it to a cutting board, not our counter top. But the device works so efficiently, that is a minor inconvenience.

I used it once (yesterday), rinsed it off and let it dry on the rack. Now it has rust on some of the 'tinnier' parts. I have several CONS for this item:
- the blades aren't really sharp enough not to just squash the beans
- the blades aren't really close enough to get a fine shred, some beans had to be done twice and some beans just slipped through
- the clamp is horrible, it doesn't fit a countertop and it barely fit my cutting board and I had to keep tightening it because it would just wiggle loose
- if you're a lefty be aware that the handle might unscrew. I set mine up to use it right-handed.

I'd love to find a quality bean frencher and I'm open to suggestions (other than using a knife....lol).

This Bean Frencher did not come with directions but was easy to assemble. It works very well.

Okay, first you have to be able to clamp this on something! Some of my cutting boards were too thin, and others too thick. Fortunately, have a piece that was cut out from the counter for the sink that works just fine. Sit it over the edge of the sink, with a bowl in the sink to catch the beans. This cutts the beans in half mostly. So you get long pieces, not the kind from the frozen food section of your market. I took them out of the bowl and just a couple of quick chops with the knife took care of that. Or leave them long. cook quick and still tender.

This does not grind the beans well. they get stuck in the mechanisms. It can only handle 1-2 beans at time.
