    These look great, and that knife trick is genius! – the number of times i’ve sliced straight through the potatoes is frustrating so I will definitely be stealing that hack, thank you.

      It made a huge difference! Unfortunately, I still managed to cut myself pretty badly. Not completely idiot-proof! >:D
