This lightweight cutter divides a potato into its french-fry essence in a jiffy. One blade creates up to 49 3/8-inch fries with a single lever-push. The other creates up to 25 half-inch fries. You'll get those numbers, however, only if you precisely shape a large potato to fit the bed. The bed's size is the cutter's only drawback. Even if you cut a large potato to fit the head, the fry length is at most 3-1/2 inches. That length, however, is ideal for carrot, cucumber, and zucchini batons to assemble a vegetable tray around a bagna cauda, an Italian dipping sauce of olive oil, butter, garlic, and anchovies. And such batons get you halfway to a pretty dice for a vegetable soup. Hand wash. --Fred Brack

Very easy to clean up after use as well.
C. Amstutz
I was pushing so hard, with the potato still not being cut by the blades, that I could actually see the outer portion of the handle bending.

This little gadget works great for cutting potatoes for french fries.

The product itself get 5 stars for ease and functionality and 4 stars for a cleaning problem and lack of accessories.
In the package are 2 different sized blade grates and push blocks that are easily assembled and removed from the main body by depressing a small lever and turning a latch, respectively. Cutting capacity is less than 4 inches in length. You'll have to "cut" large Russets before "cutting!"
Clean-up is mostly easy, if you have a baby bottle nipple brush to poke through the grate holes and cross brush the push blocks (a toothbrush for the latter works also). However, the main body has slots where the push block slides. This area collects and traps small potato fragments and is difficult to clean.
I would like to see different shaped blade grates, just for the heck of it. You never know what strange moods you will be in!? I would enjoy a larger capacity in the main body, but this would cause more strength to cut the potatoes. Right now, there's a good compromise between capacity and cutting effort.
Don't forget to double fry your potatoes: about 2-3 minutes at 325F, pat dry, then about 5 minutes or golden brown at 375F.
You can check the cooking sites for variations.

I bought this product a while ago, and it is fine, except you have to cut up the potato, etc.
I just received today, a Progressive JUMBO Potato Cutter that I saw in a catalog. Progressive now makes a cutter that is larger, and can cut the whole potato. Perfect.

This is an excellent cutter, that comes with several different size blade fittings (for thinner or thicker fries). It sets up very easily, and can be easily disassembled and popped into the dishwasher.
The one complaint I have is that the blade base should be a bit bigger so that large spuds can be passed through without having to cut the spud into smaller bits first.
The lever arm is a bit short, so that my wife has asked me to cut the potatos - since some weight has to be put into operating the lever.
It makes uniformly cut fries, that cook evenly. It makes the joy of fresh cut fries accessible to more people - so please skip the frozen fries and give yourself a real treat!

i had previously broken a good cooks french fry cutter and was desperate for a new more sturdier and better cutter. i was a little skeptical about buying this one. i make a lot of fries and i dislike cutting them by hand. when i received this cutter i noticed it was a little smaller than my last model but thats where my skepticism ended.
this slicer has such a smooth glide. it actually pushes the potato through the blade so you get an even thorough cut. if you have a large potato you may have to cut it in half but who cares. this is a wonderful cutter i recommend it to everyone.

One of the best little gadgets I have ever used, and use it I do! I am still finding new uses for it. Some examples: apples-for pies,frying,fruit salads, onions,etc. The thing to remember is to make sure that whatever you put in to slice, needs to fit. If for example the potato is larger than the square blade grid it will be very difficult to push it through. So take a bit off the top when the veggie is too large. (I had to learn this through trial, error and aggravation.)I wanted to write this to hopefully save someone else from the same.

I just used this for the first time tonight and was quite disappointed. I have not yet tried the large size cutter but the regular-sized cutting blade simply did not work. It was a struggle between me and the potato-cutter. I was pushing so hard, with the potato still not being cut by the blades, that I could actually see the outer portion of the handle bending. I doubt it will be long before it breaks completely. When I finally managed to force (not "push" but "force") the potato through the blade, it would jump the cutter across the counter due to the pressure I had to use, then, of course, it was only halfway through the potato. I'll go back to my 20-year-old cutter that pushes evenly through the top rather than fight with a vertical handle that seems to work against the laws of physics.

In my quest to cut potatoes into french fries without removing any of my fingers, I picked up this international and progressive French fry cutter. Now I am not sure what makes this cutter international or progressive, but it does cut. The size of the unit is somewhat smaller than I would have preferred which results in somewhat smaller fries. However, the cutter performs the task fairly well. Although the grip is made for one hand, be prepared to have your other hand close to give it a err...hand. Quite a bit of force is required to complete the cutting task. Not so much that you need heavy machinery, but enough that I was surprised.

For an intermittent tool in your kitchen arsenal that costs under $10, I say this cutter is a good buy. Happy cutting!

I had my doubts whether or not this was worth the money, but it works like a dream. It cuts preparation time to next to nothing and the resulting fries were perfect. In fact, I usually end up fixing more fries than I need because it really is fun to use! Two comments for prospective buyers: first, the fries come shooting out fairly quickly, and I've found it helpful to put a bowl in the kitchen sink, and then set the cutter on the counter above. Otherwise, you might end up with some on the kitchen floor as I did the first time I used it. Second, if you have larger potatoes it seems to work better if you cut them in half first.
