Don't Buy It, Until We Try It: Perfect Fries

Frozen fries are greasy and loaded with calories. But, making your own can take a lot of time. Well, there may be an easier way to make restaurant style fries in seconds.

In this week's "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It," I tried out Perfect Fries.

When you cut potatoes to make fries, it can take a lot of time. And, if you're like me, they don't really look like fries. Well, this may work a little better for you. It's called the Natural Cut for Perfect Fries. And, it promises to make perfect fries within seconds. 

But, will it really make life in the kitchen easier? Well, "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It."

For Souris River Brewing Chef Joseph Pease, his day starts early in the morning with lots of peeling, chopping, and cutting. "We do about a case a day," said Pease. "A case roughly runs about 45-50 pounds."

While Pease gets a little help from a professional grade potato cutter, he's always trying to perfect the finished product. So, we decided to put Perfect Fries to the test. 

Pease said, "It looks a little safer. It looks like it might be a little more difficult to use, I mean, especially for the yams. It's a little firmer than, like, your regular Idaho or red-skin potatoes. So, let's open it up and try it out." 

Before we could get started, there was a little assembly required. Once we had the blade tray secured in place, it was ready to use.

Pease said, "Just put the potato in and push down. That was a lot of force you had to use."

There was really no difference in appearance between the fries we made with the professional cutter and the fries we made with Perfect Fries.

"Yeah it's sturdy. You got to put a lot of weight into that to get that potato out. It seems fairly simple," explains Pease.

We just got done trying out Perfect Fries. And, we had good luck. We ended up with restaurant style fries within seconds. So, this week's "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It" earns a thumbs up. Now, I have to put them in the oven.
