              Y'all actually gave me a new look on things n school they made me feel bad about no being the best at cutting vegetables in little squares or being able to care a potato in a football shape. But like Priya said it doesn't matter the shapes what matters is the taste.

                Should have provided peeled items of even size. Some people thought they needed to process the whole item, some people just did a small amount.

                  Brad's knife though, If I had $600 laying around to buy a knife, that'd be one that's definitely tempting to me.
