Product Description

Avoid the restaurant bill and make your own curly fries at home with this easy-to-use Curly Fry Cutter from Progressive International, which quickly slices or spirals potatoes and yams in seconds. The fully enclosed cutting container keeps fingers safely away from sharp blades while slicing, and the threaded arm requires less arm strength for smoother continuous slicing. Just push your potato into the food grip at the end of the threaded rod, put the lid on the base, then turn the handle clockwise while holding the lid firmly.

You can quickly switch the cutter's blades from straight to julienne cuts on the removable blade tray, and the bottom base holds up to 3 cups (about 24 ounces) and includes printed measurements and a non-skid bottom. All pieces nest inside for easy storage, and it's top rack dishwasher safe. The Curly Fry Cutter measures 5-3/4 inches square and 13 inches tall when fully assembled.

I have been looking for an inexpensive Curly Fry Cutter for several years. I bought one of these locally and it works SO FAST and easy with perfect Curly Fries that I ordered three of them on Amazon shipped to family members out of state!
If you wash the potato good, remove eyes, then you can just cut it and fry it with skin on which is healthy for you. It will cut a medium sized potato in seconds!! And it catches it in the bottom hopper. There is a small heal left but I just cut it in strips like regular fries. The machine comes apart easily and is easy to wash.
The Curlies cook faster than regular fries too. If you look online you can find recipes for your favorite restaurant seasonings to put on them also.
If you like FRESH Fries this machine is a must have.

We bought this along with the Presto deep fryer and had the best curly fries ever. The unit made great curly fries and some of them were really long and my kids thought it was just the coolest thing ever. We were able to do two full potatoes in the bottom before emptying. We tried a sweet potato the next night but it didn't seem to cut as nicely. Sweet potatoes are a bit denser. Haven't tried any other veggies yet.

Super easy to clean. NOTE: It is large and it does take up some space so it is not ideal for those with tiny kitchens and not a lot of cabinet or storage space.

I have owned this now for three months and am on my second one. This does a good job of making curly fries, however has a few problems.

1. Instructions say that all parts are upper rack diswasher safe. For the first one I had I always used the upper rack, but over time the plastic base and lid warped to the point that the blade attachment no longer fit in without a lot of pressure and the lid didn't fit, making it a pain to use. I have since purchased my second one and now just handwash the parts.

2. The plastic grip where you attach the potato is inadequate, the grip is maybe 1/4" long and unless you are using a small or medium sized potatoe it easily falls off. I find myself constantly attaching the potato, starting to crank the shaft, then it falls off, I have to reattach, it falls off again, I have to cut the potatoe down some and repeat. The problem is with medium-large potatoes weigh a bit more than the grip can hold.

3. In both units I received I found that out of the box there weren't a lot of curly fries being made, more chunks came out than curly pieces. Solution for this was to press down on the top of the blade with a good deal of pressure to esentially position it lower. I found that after doing this I get better results and more curly fries.

All in all I like the curly fry cutter, just wish it was better quality and could handle larger potatoes better.

This cutter works great. Cleaning is easy, and the fries stay long and curly in a continuous cut. I ordered this with a FryDaddy at the same time, and will be making curly fries at home about once a month from now on! One thing I didn't consider is that it's kind of awkward to store. The only kind of bad part of the design itself is the collection container at the bottom. It works, but if you're planning on cutting more than one potato, expect to empty it repeatedly. A larger collection bin would seem nice at first, but just make it even more awkward to store...but hey, we're talking about curly fries here. CURLY FRIES!!!

We love our curly fries cutter, but the first time I used it I was confused getting started. Instructions could be more detailed and the potato kept falling out. once I cut of the ends and made the potato flat then it would grip it worked great..My 4 year old even loves helping me make the curly fries it easy to use and easy to clean. Better instuctions would made this much better..

This cutter was larger than I expected even though I read the product description carefully. Its large size makes storage a bit difficult but it also allows you to make a potato's worth of fries at once. You are supposed to be able to stick a whole potato on the gripped holder and then turn the handle to cut the fries. Unfortunately a whole potato does not fit and allow you to close the machine so you must cut the potato in half, this is not that bad except the potatoes continually fell off the grip part and I would have to start over. I finally just stuck the potato half on top on the blade and then ground down the handle and this resulted in my curly fries. Not all the parts were curly but that is okay. I also tried apples and carrots and these sliced but did not turn out curly. Since this is the only way to make homemade curly fries then I would buy this product but it isn't a must have and it takes up space.

We found that this product does cut the potato into long curly strips - once you get it going. THe hard part is getting started. The first step in the instructions is to press the potato into spikes extruding from the green head of the crankshaft attached to the lid. You must then invert the lid/crankshaft assembly, attach to the basin, and turn the handle to crank down to the blades. Our potatoes always fell off the top before we could get the top inverted and positioned. After much work, the solution we came up with is as follows: Insert a fork into the side of the potato the bottom. Use this fork as a handle to hold the potato upright resting on the cutting blade of the square base (which is the same shade of green as the crank mechanism in the lid.) Note that this base rests in the clear basin which is the bottom part of the device. There is an opening on one side of this clear basin - the fork holding the potato passes through here so that it won't interfere with the top part being lowered and attached. Next, the crank on the top part has to be adjusted to a level such that the spikes extending from the crank head will press all the way into the potato when the top part is lowered into place. If the crank is too low, the lid will not go into place. If it is too high, the spikes will not bite into the potato enough and the potato will fall. Finally, remove the fork and start cranking. At that point, it works really well. I wish this product had been designed better so that one could hold the potato manually to keep it from falling - but on the plus side, it does make good curly fries
