Crinkle-cutting

Crinkle-cutting is slicing that leaves a corrugated surface. This is done with corrugated knives or mandoline blades.

Crinkle-cut potato chips are sometimes called ruffled, by analogy with a ruffle in sewing. French fries or sweet potato fries may also be crinkle-cut, and may be called "wavy fries".

If the potato is turned 90° between cuts, the result is waffle fries. Potato chips with a waffle fry cut, however, are more properly characterized as "lattice cut" chips.

Waffle fries

Pommes gaufrettes, waffle fries, or criss-cross fries are fries obtained by quarter-turning the potato before each pass over the corrugated blade of a mandoline and deep-frying.[1]
