    This is a cool little gadget, french fry curly cutter makes incredible spiral french fries. It's a lot more fun, easier than trying to do it by hand. Nice price on this tool.

    This fry cutter does what it is supposed to do -- it cuts a potato into long curly strings! We have ours mounted on a wall in the kitchen, and we sell a LOT of curly fries. You can cut a whole potato in about 3 seconds or so (get ready to crank it a lot -- we do ours to order). In 3 years we are on our third model -- the torque from constantly cranking and spinning this is hard on the welds. Our first 2 broke at the bottom of the posts that hold the cutting plate on after about 4 months of daily use in each circumstance.

    WoW!! I have yearned for another Tater Twister for years, but they were discontinued. Now I'm glad they were. This unit is amazingly easy to use, cleans up in a snap. I struggled for a few days to decide whether to get this spiral cutter, or the Nemco straight french fry cutter. I'm certainly happy with my decision to get the Nemco Spiral Cutter. As an added Bonus, it's really fun to use too...

    Really Easy to use. I find it easier with smaller potatoes. For anybody that has trouble getting the technique down. Do not crank so hard. The blade is sharp enough to go easy and get nice cuts

    Nemco N55050AN Spiral Fry Curly Fry Cutter, This cutter is the best and very easy to use. the price is great. we uesd this cutter every day.....
    This has been a work horse for us for a year and a half. we finally had to replace the plastic threaded piece it uses to push the potatoes into the blade. parts are cheap and available. except for the main aluminum housing where one the the arms broke off at the threads inside of when we went to replace the plastic part. now we are buying a whole new unit, because all in all it was reliable, and with proper technique i think the arm would have come free easier. however the threaded part wouldn't even come with a reverse threaded tap screw remover. frustrated but satisfied at the same time. dang it!
