    I see your point. A "trainee" spud cutter may not have the same diligence as an experienced chef.with the portion continuity..

    Buy a small kitchen scale. They are really inexpensive.

    No. I think it's pretty obvious you were rumbled a long time ago, and the posts on this thread testify to that.

    Before I complete choking on my breakfast coffee I have to say that, with respect @mahola, you're quite wrong - I have been known on occasion to eat a single (potato) chip... My husband will sometimes include an odd one on my plate along with my low carb celeriac chips as a special "treat". Next time I get one I'll try to remember to remove and weigh it before attempting to eat it. Perhaps if his generosity happens frequently enough over the next few years or so I'll eventually have enough single chip weights recorded be able to publish an accurate average weight and carb content for one??

    Hopefully, Robbity

    That would be brilliant if you could build up a glossary cataloging every possible size, weight, potato used & dimension of chip taking into account calorie & carb count.

    With the right software developed of every possible chip template, Greener could invest in a "3D printer" and cut his own...

    Hopefully with the knowledgable collective advice given to Greener on his query. He will be "Lord of the fries" in no time... :D
