will this machine do potato as shown in the picture and also do the ribbon cut as well? Does it include various blades for different cuts?
The previous picture was the stock photo showing the incorrect model (spiral cuts). This model, however, only does ribbon cuts and only includes the blade assembly for the ribbon cuts. A new image will be uploaded to this page tomorrow to show ribbon fries. You can check the Literature tab for operation manuals to see model numbers for other blades that we can special order for you.

I was wondering if I can buy the blades seperately? I need to find the attachment for the twister potato. Please send a picture of this attachment with your response to ensure we are speaking of the same item. This attachment makes what is also called tornado potato. Also, does the bamboo stick go in the potato before or after the potato has been cut?
Hello, the blade can be bought separately, it is item #874293. We currently do not carry any items called "twister potato", but we do sell other Nemco slicers that cut in different ways - item #315061 for example, which cuts in thin spirals. Thank you!

The company I purchased my potato cutter from advertised it as a "ribbon cutter". What I received was actally a "spiral cutter". Is it possible to get the proper plate to cut ribbon potatoes?
Hello, item 112554 is listed as being a ribbon cutter, the photos attached are a good demonstration of what the finished product looks like. Thank you!

can you make tornado fries with this machine?
Hello, this cutter makes ribbon fries, which can be seen better in the alternative photo. These fries may be a little thinner than traditional tornado fries. We do have a blade for this machine that makes "spiral fries", item 874293, which may be closer to what you are looking for. Items 430014 and 897355 may possibly work too. For further assistance, our customer service department can be reached at 1-866-634-8927. Thank you!

I am interested in this product but wanted to know if this is the same machine that is used at fairs. I have seen some being used with a drill or is that a different slicer? Or do they take the handle off and weld another extension that fits the drill. Any insight would be helpful thank you,
Hello, we are unable to determine whether or not this product is used at fairs. We would recommend contacting the NEMCO manufacturer directly at 1-800-782-6761 - they may be able to give you information on whether or not they supply this potato cutter to people who work the food booths at fairs. Thank you!
