    Paul, I think your best bet will be an imdustrial/commercial unit. I have bought a few domestic type chip cutters and they jave been dissapointing to say the least.

    Try goggling used catering equipment first, often industrial strength stuff available at very reasonable prices.

    If I might ask, do you do a lot of chips? I just found that for the quantity I do (4 to 5 people), its quicker and easier with a knife overall, and the right technique. Setting up, dismantling and cleaning a chipper takes longer than just using a knife.

    I get between 12 and 20 chips per spud, depending on the size and its, pardon the pun, chop chop.

    I have this one and it works a charm. It is a bit bulky when it comes to storage.

    EDIT: Ignore. I missed you R600 limit. As Estee said the cheaper ones are frustrating. Had 2 others before I bought this one...

    Gelmar used to sell a cheap one. I threw it in the bin halfway through my first potato. Cheap ones are crap. As Estee said, cleaning also a mission for a few potatoes.

    I want one of those potato on a stick squirly cutter thingies. Although it wont do my midsection any favours.

    Do not waste your money on a cheap one like in the pic.

    It will frustrate you.

    Agreed, on these types you have to cut the potatoes in half.

    The flexing of the frame and the excess potato gets jammed in there otherwise.
    Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.

    For "family" use, a good peeler and knife.
    Cleaning the chipper for only a few spuds is a schlepp.
    (this holds for most vegetable preparation).

    For large quantities, go catering grade (as per the example posted earlier).
