About Jiffy Fries

Jiffy Fries bills itself as the fast, fresh, easy way to make crispy restaurant-quality french fries using the microwave. They claim its crisping technology requires no grease and you can have hot, delicious fries in minutes that are perfect every time.

Jiffy Fries is based in Rock Hill, SC but there is no other information provided on their site or the BBB. Therefore, there is no accreditation or rating available on the company.

How Jiffy Fries Works

Jiffy Fries is a red tube-shaped device (they call it a Hot Pod) with two different round slicers. To use Jiffy Fries, choose your slicer (thin fries or steak) and place on top of the inner (base) tube. Put your potato on top of the slicer and cover with the outer tube, which has handles on either side. Then, push down using the handles and the unit will close together, slicing up the potato into fries.Then, pop into the microwave, laying the Pod on its side, and minutes later, they claim you will have a plate of delicious, crisp fries.

They tout its secret is the design of the patented Hot Pod, which uses “crisping technology” to circulate heat from the microwave above, below, and between the slices to create the perfect temperature and texture for fries. (The Pod appears to have 3 different “shelves” inside to separate the potatoes.)

They claim Jiffy Fries are fun, the perfect snack, and make every dinner a “winner”. They insist you can also make things such as cheddar buffalo fries, or ones sprinkled with bacon (a recipe guide is included.)

They say Jiffy Fries takes the oil and grease out of your diet and you can make healthy sweet potato fries as well. They add that Jiffy Fries is dishwasher safe, making cleanup as quick and easy as cooking (and eating) the fries.

Each Jiffy Fries Order includes:

  • Jiffy Fries Hot Pod
  • 2 slicers (regular or steak fries)
  • Recipe guide
  • Jiffy Secret Seasonings

    I paid $23.96 (total) to Dollar Discount for the Jiffy Fries and waited three months and 16 days for delivery. The order was to have included an instruction sheet, two blades (small and steak fries), a recipe guide, seasoning packet, the tube, and three shelves. What I got was the tube, three shelves, and one blade. Nothing else. Not the second blade, not the seasoning packet, not the recipe guide, and certainly not an instruction sheet. I feel cheated. Do NOT buy this, at least not from Dollar Discount.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I finally received it in the mail, opened it, and no instructions. The only instructions are on the side 1, 2, 3, 4. No mention of how long to put in the microwave. I tried it and put it in for one minute to test with a small baby potato. When I took it out, I could not open it! After five minutes of playing with it, I finally got it open, and it was broken.

    I thought it was a good idea. I will continue making mine the old-fashioned way.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Slicing potatoes is hard, I had to pound it down. Then had to separate potato slices inside. I microwave for 6 minutes, and it came out steam-cooked potatoes and a lot of water.

    This is a piece of junk. It may be ok for just cooking a whole or cut in half potato. About it, I had to crisp them in my air fryer.

    Don't waste your time or money! Makes a good pencil holder!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    The potato was mush; I put it in the microwave for three minutes and the white part started to melt. A piece of crap. Please don’t buy; it doesn't work like it says. I am never going to buy anything like this again. $30.00 put in the trash.

    A HUGE waste of money

    First of all, it is impossible to make fries - you can't push hard enough to make fries. So I cut up a potato myself just to see if it works to make crispy fries. NO it does - I put them in the microwave for a total of 12 minutes. They definitely didn't turn out like advertised. It is a piece of JUNK not worth buying!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
