Good point, I have updated the listing to appeal to other people, I don't want to be accused of being veggist! X)

I thought that was the point of HUKD.

Not good if your making chips and trying to cut your fat intake down - crinkle chips have more surface area so absorb even more fat.

But there is something about crinkle cut chips that I like ;-)

I'm not a scientist, but surely that's bull!

It's not bull, but it is ridiculous to make such a point.

A crinkle cut chip will absorb a small amount more fat because of the surface area, but it will be insignificant.

By the same logic you could say don't use big potatoes, because your chips will be longer and absorb more fat.

I agree, I'm sure I've heard that the more substantial the potato, the better they are for you fried, as the less the oil they absorb, that's why everyone loves skinny chips (french fries), as they're full of crappy, unhealthy oil!

The pertinent facts from the above website article are below:

Thick chips absorb less oil than thin ones making chunkier chips healthier.
Chips are also a very good source of vitamin C.
A portion of chip shop chips contains less fat than a prawn mayonnaise sandwich
A portion of oven chips will provide a third of your Recommend Daily Amount of vitamin C
A serving of oven chips with 3 fish fingers contains one third of the saturated fat found in a serving of lasagne

Probaby the fat!

Cool

Hot price. That said, to risk being boring, I'd strongly recommend a decent mandoline if you're actually going to use it (rather just buying it because it's cheap and throwing it in a cupboard)... they're quicker, easier, clear and safer to use.

Will it work with left hand people too?

Mandolin type cutters are the cause of SO many kitchen accidents requiring hospital treatment, try cutting yourself with a crinkle cutter first (we use it one for veg cutting with nippers) ..whereas a mandolin very easily slices fingertips off (mine included) with the merest distraction.
(wasn't a fun few hours in casualty, or afterwards) oO

I'm sure all that peeling and cutting would burn off all the guilty calories that are about to be consumed. (Not a scientifically based opinion).

I certainly wouldn't dismiss the dangers of using something as sharp as a mandolin. That said if you buy one that comes with a guard to hold the food your cutting and exercise caution it's perfectly safe. The risk of cutting myself with our kitchen knives (which could easily take the tip of a finger off) is probably a lot higher.

Actually, not so long ago, kitchen related Mandolin injuries featured pretty highly in reported figures for casualty attendance when broken down, You may have one with a guard but the nature of the mandolin often means you don't pay attention to where your fingers are & stop in good time, as happened with me, was operating with caution, wife comes in talking, concentration lost in a moment the tip of my finger is off & in need of stitching, safety equipment may only forestall an accidents eventuality.

I "hate" that mandolin, but will happily jump off a cliff with a chute or swim with sharks.

(it was a swiss "zyliss", actually pricey brand but not as safe as a cheaper unit we bought & tried)
