I drove to a restaurant supply to get the crinkle cutter for $4.00. After reading the reviews, I followed recipe exactly with one variation. I cut my fries thin and thick to see the difference. I cooked them at 420 degrees for 20 minutes, flipped them and lowered the temp to 400 to keep from burning the thinner ones. I found that the thinner ones cooked and browned better, but neither crisped up very well. The flavor is sweet, similar to sweet potato fries. They are good, but a little sweet for ketchup for me. Considering the benefit of less carbs, I give them a thumbs up!
