Durable design. Produces delicious thin fries!
I love oven fries... so chopping potatoes is a common task for me. This item a big upgrade over my previous french fry cutter, which I had given up on long ago.
My previous French fry cutter was a source of endless frustration. The potato would get stuck in the dull blades. I'd bash the tiny handle trying to get it through, only to throw the cutting head out of alignment and jam it further. On top of that, that plastic piston head cracked, and the fries were always too thick. Faster and easier to use a knife.
This Winco French fry cutter has no such issues. The long handle gives you the leverage to run potatoes through with ease, and it produces these perfectly thin delicious fries. I haven't had any jams when using regular potatoes, but I did run into trouble when trying to push a large yam through it. Even so, the unit was not damaged after I forced it through (and I was not gentle with it).
This unit can be used un-mounted (placing a heavy towel under it), but it is a little wobbly. It performs better when bolted to a stable surface.
Overall length, includes handle: 15 1/2"
Overall length, no handle: 12 3/4"
Blade width (fry size): 1/4"
+No jamming when used with potatoes. I've also used it with carrots and zucchini with no issues.
+Consistent, thin fries.
+Sturdy metal construction. No plastic parts that are prone to break.
+Piston and cutting head are properly alligned.
+Can be disassembled for maintenance.
-Cleaning. Residue sometimes sticks in the grooves of the piston head, and a nylon brush is not enough to get them out.
-Can jam when used with tougher produce. If you have to use this for sweet potatoes, I recommend chopping them in smaller pieces first (length-wise).
Fit and Finish: 5/5
+Came mostly assembled out of box, just needed to attach handle.
+No sharp edges, dents, or scratches.
+Replacement blades are available.
+Lower cost than comparable designs (metal construction).
+Cheaper plastic units are available in the $20 range, but as I described above my experience with those has been very poor.
