The closest I’ve ever come to making curly fries are the ones you get in the frozen section of the grocery store, where you have to stick them in the oven and wait the 25 minutes or so and hope they turn out ok. Like most things that are prepackaged and frozen, they are usually tasteless and even if you follow the directions on the package, they never cook the way you’d expect. In this first edition of “Gadget of The Week” I’d like to share with you, a device that seemed impressive the very first time I laid eyes on it.
I’m not sure if there are other gadgets designed specifically for making curly fries, but I know if you’re using a basic kitchen knife to try and accomplish this, you’d be out of luck. With the Curly Fry Cutter you simply place your potato or other vegetable inside the Curly Fry Cutter and turn the crank. The threaded rod makes slicing easier, and the Curly Fry Cutter’s closed design keeps fingers safe while minimizing countertop mess and keeping things organized. You can make both slices and continuous spirals with the Progressive International Curly Fry Cutter, perfect for both casual and fancy dining. The Curly Fry Maker has a 3-cup capacity and is top rack dishwasher safe.
Here’s a pic of some sweet potato and regular potato cut using the Progressive International Curly Fry Cutter. All you need now is to add these to your deep fryer and you’ll have fresh cut curly fries which will impress your kids and adults alike. Kids just love these novelty fries and I’m sure you’ll have no problem getting them to eat their lunch or dinner with some juicy strips of steak.
Check out this video on how simple it is to use… but first read this customer review:
It really works! I thought, with it being plastic looking, that it would be cheaper quality but it works great :] Curly fries all the way. And it is soo simple to use, just put your peeled potato in [or whatever you choose to curl] and twist the crank at the top, you got yourself some homemade curly fries :] And to wash you can just throw it in the dishwasher, really simple. Also you don’t have to make curly deliciousness, you can switch it to just cut the item too if you’d like. Great item for the price!
