learning my way around a kitchenaid .... with several accessories.

I am having fun making some delicious messes!!

Lori always says that my appetite for whatever is put upon the table is one of my few remaining attributes......LOL.
We just talked about this tonight.
I just so hate making decisions, and was taught at an early age that 'you will eat what is on the table or you don't eat'.....

Send me your experiments, dear.

LOL.

No. I just google-imaged "raccoon tomatoes" and this came up. The chutney just came up to a boil. Now it has to cook for 2 or 3 hours. The smell is making Eric gag. He just refused to come into the kitchen and empty the dishwasher for me. Guess I'd better go open up a window...

Dem boys. What motivates Gabe is driving to CV to share a Mountain Dew with Eric.
Believe me, their dens have a lot in common.

well.. *sigh* I am struggling to understand why I am unable to find a simple tool for the job I have in mind.

Okay okay I was in the kitchen.. and I had been deep frying a few things.

At the end of the day there was still oil left, and I was in the mood for potato chips. Yes american style ultra thin chips. So I heated up the oil,
got out the potato peeler and peeled a potato, and set to work slicing the potato with the peeler. The thickness was perfect, I dropped them into the oil
one by one and started frying them. I fished them out of the oil and salted them while still hot. Delicious. But I noticed a problem.

The peeler was not long enough, and after a few chips it started to gouge into the potato. This left me slicing the potato in two, and the shapes were just slightly unprofessional it STILL was not long enough. This caused me to start to search... and sure enough I still have not found one with the blade long enough!

I am thinking a cutting area of the blade at least 5" (maybe 6" blade length?)
would handle the job perfectly. But to date I have not found anything that will fit my needs.

Am I the only one to think of this? Am I the only one with enough time to try this? Kitchen aid slicer is too thick, I am doubtful of the results that would be obtained from a mandolin or electric slicer.. and the costs seem very unreasonable for what a simple tool should do!

by the way, the chips were delicious.

Maybe something like this might do?


Presto 02970 Professional SaladShooter Electric Slicer/Shredder, White

Or maybe this one?

the first one is a cheap imitation hand held kitchenaid.. or small portions of one. So without testing I can say no it would not work.

The other electric slicer MIGHT work. For a lot of money when a small hand tool does the job perfectly, and is the perfect thickness for potato chips.

A Mandolin also MIGHT work. It just seems to me ridiculous to have to go to such extremes for something so simple.

Thank you for the offer Uli. I am trying to avoid having to go to such extremes when such a simple tool should work perfect( a peeler). Can you tell me if a slicer would even slice thin enough for (commercial thickness) potato chips?
