I absolutely love this device. It's great to get the entire family involved in cutting potatoes. It is super durable, made of all metal construction. Combine this with a deep fryer and you are making great fry's.
I bought this as a gift for my husbad, (fish fry master of the universe) and now he has something to compliment his fish! We love the cut of the potatos. You do have to have a little oomph to push the potato through but that is to be expected. Nice quality, this slicer will be at many family gatherings to come!
I was somewhat displeased- the cutter is sharp to the touch however you really have to use a lot of power to push a potato through. I was really interested in making sweet potato fries...forget it. you are unable to push a sweet potato through. You really have to muscle this gadget. I would just as soon use a knife & cutting board.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. not what i had in mind for a commercial style french fryer
It was a lot more heavy duty than the picture looked, so I was very excited. But the first time I used it (and I had read the instructions and was doing everything the way they said) I was very disappointed. I did sweet potato and regular fries. My husband and I could barely push through the sweet potato.(And we're pretty strong) And it wasn't that much easier with the regular. I am guessing the blades are just not that sharp. And then when I cleaned it, it looked like the blades were already bent, and I had only done 2 potatoes. So I would say it is not as heavy duty as it looks.
