As a kitchen gadget a potato slicer is a versatile classic that enjoys many uses other than just slicing potatoes, perhaps because the potato slicer remains as one of the safest, easiest and most efficient kitchen items in use.

However, while an excellent potato slicer can be used for all sorts of vegetables like onions, zucchinis, carrots, turnips, cucumbers, radishes, squash etc., the traditional use of a potato slicer is to make every child's favorite, "French fries", just like mom used to make.

The origin of the potato slicer is unclear but it has helped speed the process of food preparation for decades especially in making French fries and potato chips.

As for the history of the potato, Peruvian Indians were the first to cultivate potatoes as far back as 200 B.C. but it was not until 1621 before they were introduced in North America. French Fries were first introduced to the U.S. when Thomas Jefferson served them in the White House during the first decade of the 1800's. Then in 1853, the potato chip was created when chef George Crum sliced some potatoes paper-thin, fried them in hot oil, salted and served them to railroad magnate Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt.
