Product Description

Amazon.com

Clamp this tool onto any surface up to 1-1/4 inches thick, feed string beans into the hopper, turn the crank, and the Frencher's stainless-steel blades quickly and neatly slice the beans into slender French-cut shapes. The hopper is 1-1/4 inches wide, big enough to handle several beans at once. This is a heavy-duty tool meant to last a lifetime. --Fred Brack

Product Description

Green beans are great, but French cut green beans are even better. Send the fresh green beans through this device and you will be rewarded with slender slivers that seem to have a more delicate taste and a more pleasant, less tough texture.

Very easy to use.
William Palleschi
Wasn't easy for me to find a place to attach it to, doesn't open wide enough to fit on my kitchen counter.
Joanne S Cabral
I'll do a lot more french beans for the freezer.

I was skeptical about how something like this would actually work, especially with the mixed reviews I've read on this site and others. It really isn't as bad as some would lead you to believe. Use some common sense and a bit of ingenuity and it works fine. No, you can't put a giant handfull of beans in it and expect it to not clog up. If you put in 3 or 4 at a time you'll have no problems. No, the jaws of the clamps don't open 4 inches to accomodate a countertop. They open only about 1.5 inches, enough to clamp on the edge of a table. I used a couple thin silicone pads, one on top and one underneath the table under the clamps. There was room for this and it did not damage the surface of the oak dining table at all. I have to admit, it doesn't clamp down super tight with the pads this way. One person CAN turn the crank by themselves and feed beans into the hopper with no problems, but it did work best with my husband's help. He turned the crank as fast as he could while simultaneously feeding beans into the hopper. I helped steady the slicer to the table. We went through a large brown shopping bag of beans in about 10 minutes. We grow our own vegetables every year and this is the best way to get frenched beans. You do have to disassemble the slicer to get all the bean bits out but it isn't difficult to do. If you use this with realistic expectations and realize you're going to have to work with it a bit to make it work, you'll be very happy with the result of the beans and with the time it saves. If you expect it to do all the work and the thinking for you, you'll think it's a piece of junk. It's not 100% perfect but it's as close as we're ever going to get for under $25.

I just recently purchased the Norpro Bean Frencher and it works better than anything else I've tried using. I used to try other methods of preparing beans, but I wasted so much strength cutting beans. The Nopro Bean Frencher will do all your hard work- it'll cut several beans at a time and slice string cheese with an effortless crank turn. The price is certainly right and no one can go wrong on this. I like to try as many kitchen products that cut down on cooking or preparing time as I can, and I'm sure everybody will have fun using this.

I like this tool but my kitchen counters are too deep to clamp it onto the counter itself. Had to clamp it on a cutting board which makes it less sturdy if you're doing multiple beans. I'm left-handed and like most things like this they're made for righties. Cuts can be a bit inconsistant...frankly, I prefer the other single bean frencher for many applications but if you were doing a quantity this would be the way to go.

My sister and her family were at my home for Thanksgiving. I put her daughter-in-law in charge of frenching the green beans. I set up the Norpro and showed her what to do. They were both ecstatic to discover this gadget! I'm ordering one for both of them. I've had mine for at least ten years and haven't had to replace it. It has never failed me. I'm surprised at the number of negative reviews. I have 1.25" granite countertops in my kitchen. I simply put a dishcloth over the edge before I attach the Norpro. I open the dishwasher and pull out the top rack and balance a mixing bowl under the Norpro and away we go! I've used this thing for so long that I guess I've gotten pretty fast at it. I grab a handful of beans and feed them through a couple at a time depending on their thickness. I keep the handle spinning all the time. I can churn out a couple of pounds of beans in nothing flat! I love the consistency of the cut. We haven't had a whole green bean in this house in about a decade. Best $15 gadget I ever bought!

I bought this product last year and it really is much faster than using a knife to make french-style green beans. It has held up really well and to wash it I just swoosh it around in hot soapy water and then let it air dry overnight before putting it away. The only problem I had with it was that I had trouble finding a surface to attach it too because my countertop and tables have a beveled edge. My hubby attached it to a piece of wood with straight edges and then clamped the wood onto the table top. That solved the problem of it sliding around. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a large amount of green beans to slice because it does make the job much easier and if you have a table or countertop with straight edges you'll be all set too.

We have used this for 2 years. The pluses...only one. This is about the only thing out there that french cuts green beans 3-4 at a time. The minuses are numerous. It can't be attached to just any edge and cannot attach to our wooden table or granite counters, which makes it very difficult to use. My husband and I often work it together so there are 4 hands to hold it down, shove beans in, and grind all at the same time. Beans do get caught up inside and need to be re-positioned. Hard to clean. But still we use it because it is easier than slicing one bean at a time with a knife.
