Some restaurants use that french fry maker tool. Unfortunately too few. Most just buy frozen pre-cut potatoes. FYI: a french fry is culinarily known as a baton or batonette. Also, when making true f. fries always use a mealy potato and not a waxy potato. Mealy are best for fying, waxy are best for boiling.

Being that I am of Lithuanian and Polish heritage I have spent many years studying such matters and the problem is obvious; debodum, you were using the wrong end of the nail.

Case study:
Two Poles are building a house. One of them is putting on the siding. He picks up a nail, hammers it in. Picks up another nail, throws it away. Picks up a nail, hammers it in. Picks up another, throws it away. This goes on for a while, and finally his friend comes over and asks him why he is throwing half of the nails away. He replies, "Those ones were pointed on the wrong end." His Polish friend gets exasperated and says "You idiot, those are for the other side of the house!"

Years ago my Aunt Helen ran a tavern in Shamokin PA that had an upstairs kitchen,
she had one of those french fry cutters mounted on a wall, I would visit with my parents and ask if I could have some fries, and she said not until you cut me some, those were the days.... She used a dumbwaiter to send the food down.

I use the docking method to do my taters in the microwave, good stuff! Thanks debodum! Your thread brought back many happy memories.

I'm finding this type of text file on my HD each time I use my laptop with Windows 7. Is this a log of some program communicating with its home office? Windows or Firefox or other program? I'm just hoping I haven't picked up some sort of malware spy program. Class addr: a036c0 Seed sent:...
