Chips potatoes OK if they are not too big.
Chips potatoes OK if they are not too big. I chip without peeling and it works. Best if you cut spuds lengthwise as if they are close to the grid size it is REALLY REALLY hard to close the handle.
As I have read elsewhere (but not before I did it) DO NOT try to do sweet potato! I did and one of the blades came out. I put it back in, CAREFULLY. Used it again but now the blade is a tiny bit uneven and even if you use it on potatoes and they are medium to large the blade pops out again. I can't seem to find a replacement set of blades. :(
Not strong enough
Will cut potato if you cut them small enough. Sweet potato isn't going to happen. By the time I mess around with this I may as well use a knife. Pretty disappointed
Purchased in August 2020 for $80.00.
Weak and Cheap!
Got this as a gift, used it one time and it cut one potato using all my strength. Broke on the next one. It was a gift, not what I was envisioning but I gave it a try. I’ll go buy a good one.
Does the job for me.
Much quicker than using a knife to make chips. You have to be careful to get the blades in facing the right way round - cutting edge to the potato though. When we used it for the first time we didn't realise that the blades have a cutting edge and a blunt edge and managed to get it in the wrong way around. This broke the cutters and we had to get a new set. In putting them in the second time I realised that only one face is the cutting face. Since then we have been happily slicing potatoes into chips with minimal effort. Haven't tried sweet potato yet though.
Blades fell apart
Worked great first time, second time one blade fell out then the 3rd time all the blades fell out and got stuck in the potato. Extremely dissapointed.
I do not recommend this chip cutter
Can't cut sweet potato
Paid around $60 or this device only to find it can't cut sweet potato at all. I only wanted to make sweet potato chips not normal ones. Will be seeking a refund too.
Not strong enough for sweet potato fries
I bought this because it was recommended for sweet potatoes. After using it twice the cutter blades disintegrated. Will be fine for normal potatoes but this chipper can't handle the tougher sweet potatoes.
LOVE... THIS... PRODUCT!
I love this product more than I ever thought I would. I bought it online from Peter's of Kensington and it comes with two drop in blades to make chunky or thinner chips. I've found if you use smaller potatoes you'll fly through your prep time and have them basted and in the oven before its even warmed up. Simply cut, throw in a bowl with some olive oil and a little garlic salt. Mix then scatter on a tray and you'll have nom nom chippies in no time. I've done kumera too (sweet potato) but you need to cut it up smaller as the vegie is more dense ...than a regular spud and it might not go through if its big pieces. This is a very cost effective and preservative free way to make chips that taste great. And for clean up this unit has two of my favourite words stamped on it - DISHWASHER SAFE. TIP: If you haven't peeled your potatoes, do yourself a favour and immerse the blade (metal cutting square) in a bowl of water to soak immediately after use. This will soften and 90% of the time remove all the skin from the surrounding edges of the blade.
Best little Chipper around
We own and operate a University Cafeteria, we chip approx 50kg of Potatoes daily, we had many brands of chipper commercial and domestic, and for us the Savannah wins hands down.
