French Fry Cutter

Am interested in buying a French fry cutter.

Would like a heavy duty one and would prefer if I could change the blades to make fries 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch thick.

Does anyone have any experience with one?

Thanks so very much.

Years ago I used a Vego-matic. Commerical one might work.

I use a Cuisinart with the french fry or the julienne disk!

Another idea, would be to use a mandoline. I am not sure how this is done, but mandolines often come with instructions on how to cut fries. A good one can be purchased for around $90.00. When making the fries, you also may want to consider a kevlar glove to protect from mishaps.

A real french fry cutter, on the other hand, can get expensive. They are heavy, and are likely to only cut one size. Expect to pay roughly $300.00 for one of those (new).

I picked up one on sale at Northern Tool + . It was like $10 bucks or so. Its okay, Im happy with it. The commercial one that I would love to have, but never will spend that kind of money cost about $300 to $400. Here is a link:
