Are you looking to find the best potato chipper? The best based on my research would be Westmark. Potato chippers are designed to help you get the perfectly chip so they cook evenly. In this guide I am going to go through which ones are the best, as well as what to look for in a potato cutter.
Who doesn’t love homemade chips, they are the perfect side with so many meals. I have a bit of OCD when it comes to chips, I like to make sure they are equally sized. There is a very good reason for that though…
If you have chips that are not cut evenly, then they do cook at different times. So you end up with the smaller ones getting burnt and the larger ones not being properly cooked. This is the case whether you roast or fry them.
So how do you get cut chips so they are perfectly sized?
The answer is using a potato chipper…
These are handy kitchen tools that help you to not get perfect sized chips but also saves time. Simply pop in the potato and you will chop it into chips, perfect if you are not comfortable with using knives and also ideal if you are needing to make chips for the whole family.

A potato chipper is usually made from plastic or stainless steel, and often features a compartment for you to place the potato, a handle and the blades. The idea is that you place your peeled potato into the compartment, pull down the handle and this pushes the potato through the blades which cut it into equally shaped chips. The handle has a plastic section, which pushes the individual fries out from the blades.
A chipper is not going to be an essential piece of kitchen equipment, you can easily make them with just a knife (This is until you actually use one). It is certainly a kitchen gadget that has been designed to make life easier when looking to make homemade chips.
I first thought why would I need one of these, that was however until I started using one. Now I must use it several times a week and it is one of my most used gadgets. It just makes cutting chips incredibly quick and easy. One thing I would recommend is parboiling the potatoes, as this does help make it a bit easier to cut them if you intend to roast them in the oven.
