I never thought frying French Fries can be this easy. I actually kind of have given up on frying veges, but with this new gadget, cutting is simple, interesting, and fun to eat. This spiral vegetable cutter is constructed with fairly light plastic. But I carefully let the blade do the slicing without much force. It did a great job. You can make all kinds of fresh vege spaghetti salad to eat. Thus far my potato chips tossed in kosher salt, paprika, and cayenne pepper is a hit.
