I could get one of those thingies that you can put several taters in at once and cuts them up? Its so agravating to sit there and cut up as many as it takes for our family without looking for somethign to make it a bit easier on my hands. This thingie(do'nt know what its real name is sorry) has like a box that you put taters. Then it is run over a blade of sorts and thus you get cut up taters. I konw someone here must know what I"m talking about. I apologize for not know what to call this contraption:) Anyone ?

Would this thing be a food processer? Wally World has them. The old fashioned slaw cutter, or grater have a potato slicer on one side. Run potatoes through the slaw cutter and fry up the best skillet on hash brown a goin.
The food processer will slice or shred them one at a time.
Boil them with the jackets on and serve them that way. Then everyone gets to peel and cut up his own tater.

Sounds like you want a french fry cutter. Unfortunately, I haven't seen one in years.

Try eBay. Search under potato slicer, french fry (or fries) cutter, potato cutter or whatever else you can think of. One option is to search on potato and then look at the categories to the left. Search those which seem to be equipment related.

Older models tend to produce larger fries. Newer ones are smaller. You may be surprised at the amount of force needed to push a large potato through one of these.

How are you trying to cut them up...for fries or into slices? I really like using a mandolin to slice a variety of thicknesses and potatoes work really well on it. Mine is from Pampered Chef, but there are better, less plastic versions out there.
