I am making sweet potato fries in the oven for my grandson. I would like to know if a good reliable cutter is available for cutting them.

I purchased a Zyliss french fry cutter, and it is not able to cut sweet potatoes in any effective way.

Sweet potatoes are so hard that you'll have a hard time finding a consumer cutter that will slice them into fried. I'd recommend cutting them by hand or trying a heavier commercial cutter.

MANDOLIN! MANDOLIN! MANDOLIN! Barring that your food processor should have a blade that works. Lastly, buy sweet potato fries in the frozen food section at your grocer. If your grandson can tell the difference; then it's time to teach him some knife skills
