I hate cutting potatoes, washing them and cutting them into pieces. It is a burden to me. It annoys me. It takes me forever. It puts me off from cooking altogether.
One day, I had it. I had been cutting potatoes for a long time because we had guests. And I told myself that that was the last time I would be cutting potatoes.
I decided that I would be looking for a solution where I would just put in the potato and, in one go, I would be able to slice it without using a kitchen knife.
So I went on the hunt for a potato slicer where I would be able to put the potato in and slice it with a simple move. The difficult thing about doing something like that is that that piece of equipment could be quite difficult to work with because the potato is hard to get through. Unless you have boiled it first. So where could I find something like this?
Every time I am looking for something that is unusual or not the typical kitchen utensil, I go to Amazon. I tend to buy things that I think off or imagine but don’t even know if they exist or not yet. Usually when I go to Amazon I am lucky enough to be able to find it, exactly what I want.
So, to my surprise, I found this potato slicer much quicker than I thought.
It is great because you put the potato inside of it and with enough strength you pass it through, you push it with a mechanism through a mini wall shaped with little squares. You can actually change this wall with wider squares or smaller squares depending on how you want your fries to be like.
Once you have put all the potatoes you want to cook through the slicer, you can go ahead and fry the potatoes for any time of the day that you want to cook.
My husband, who is as much if a lazy cook as I am, loves this kitchen gadget.
