Hi,

I was wondering if there is anything such as an
automatic potatoe peeler? Basically, I would like to
put a potatoe on a peeler machine and have the skin
peeled automatically.

Also, I am wondering if there is a machine for slicing
potatoes length-wise (as in French fries) or
breadth-wise (as in Pringles potatoe chips)?

Thanks for helping out.

If you are really into potatoes try

They have peelers and slicers. For Pringles style you need to start by
grinding potatoes into mush then reforming them into uniform chips.

I think she was looking for something like a mandoline
to slice potatoes thinly rather than a method of
reproducing Pringles....

Yes there is. I own a couple gadgets that do that. One I got at a
church rummage sale and it holds an apple, potato, etc while a cutting
arm removes the skin. I also bought another gadget at a garage sale
that is supposed to pell potato skins off. I skim read the directions
and it said to add water to this chamber and it looked like a grater
on the bottom. We have never tried it yet, so I can't vouch for how it
functions. Iirc it was better suited for smaller potatos like the
redskins rather than baking potatoes, but I may be wrong. My wife does
most of the cooking and she still uses a regular peeler.

Basically you can get the same effect by laying the potatoe on a piece of wood
and smacking it repeatedly about the face with your large penis. Just slam your
penis against the potatoe and it will peel. Best luck to you!
