Local store asked me to manage an Ore-Ida French Fry Vendor machine. Aparently different french fry machines are different. Ore-Ida's uses a freezer to hold the fries until it cooks them in hot air for 35 seconds (adjustable). It sells the fries by weight. "Tasty Fries" stores the fries dehydrated, and doesn't need refrigeration. It just reconstitutes them (purifies its own water with ultra-violet light) and cooks them in oil. It sells the fries by number.
Anyway, the Ore-Ida machine is there. The question is the product. I kow I could use Ore-Ida's product, which may be best, but I may want other options. I know I can't use "regular" fries, since the manual says they take a couple miutes to cook, which this machine won't give (max of 45 seconds.) I could use "regular" fries, but they'd be vastly inferior.
Anyone use these machines, check out where to buy product, or have comments on the quality of the product?
