Comes in 2 sizes.
Rarely used the bigger one - ideal for dicing.
The smaller one is perfect for french fries. I also use it to make strips of carrots n potatoes n then cut them to abt 1 or 3/4 inch pieces (along with the same length french beans, dishes look lovely). I use this size veggies for pulao, kurmas, veggie stir-fry n so on. Even cucumbers cut this way look grt in salads (with diced red tomatoes or r.peppers)....u could cut partially cooked or partially steamed beetroots for salads, or curries this way too. I luv the uniformness n symmetry in my food :-)
U can make french fries / veggie strips only to abt 2 1/2 inches long. So cut carrots n other veggies to that size before feeding in. You could feed in 2 such pieces in one go if the carrots aren't too hard. Don't use too much force.
Place the cutter on a cutting board, hold the cut veggies as they come out, with your other hand, as you press, it would then b easier to cut them further if desired.
I've been using this for more than 15 yrs n was looking out to get more for a backup...i kept searching, thankfully it's still holding on well. So happy i found the exact one here at amazon!!! Got one for my daughter in Sep 2011
23 Nov 2014 Update:
The blades began dulling gradually and the cutter ultimately broke while using on a carrot. Would have lasted longer if I had stuck to doing only potatoes.
I also like that the handle is sturdy. When you use it it does not flex and feels substantial for a product made of plastic. Another plus is that it's easy to disassemble and clean.
