218 - Kiwi Brand Pro Slicer.

The Kiwi Brand Pro Slicer is used in a similar way to a traditional vegetable peeler but as it has a zig-zag cutting edge, instead of just peeling, it creates long julienne strips and so is more like a mandolin slicer than a peeler.  It can also be used to create decorative patterns in vegetables for displays.  When used in opposing directions in can be used to make a lattice pattern which works particularly well with courgette and cucumber.

This tool is great for preparing salads that require shredded vegetables like carrot, beetroot, celeriac etc.  In Thailand the Pro Slicer is used for preparing green papaya salad however can also be used for making more western dishes like coleslaw or rosti potato etc.

We like to use ours for making a delicious celeriac remoulade or potato rosti (see photo).

The blade is made from specially treated Japanese high carbon content stainless steel (SUS420J2) which is razor sharp. The handle is made from lightweight high grade polypropylene plastic which is durable and ergonomic.

Alternative: see the Multipurpose Zigzag slicer, this is also able to slice veg in the same way but it also has more features.

Keep the blade away from strong acids or alkalis such as fish sauce or vinegar.
Do not use wire wool to clean as it may damage the blade. Wash with a soft sponge and dry immediately.

Avoid putting wooden handled knives in a dishwasher as the high temperature and extended period in water will shrink and dry the wood and will ultimately ruin the knife.

This knife is made with a Japanese high carbon martensitic stainless steel alloy(SUS420J2) which has the benefit of being harder and therefore sharper than many other stainless steels but the trade-off is that they are more prone to staining.

If your knife has a wooden handle, it is recommended to oil the handle occasionally with a food grade oil. The choice of oil is a personal preference however groundnut and rapeseed oil appear to be popular but avoid olive oil as this can go rancid quite quickly. This will help maintain the wood and keep your knife looking like new. Be very careful while doing this to avoid cutting yourself.

Store knives in a dedicated storage solution such as a wooden box or wall hanger, see our knife storage options .

Keep in a safe location away from children.
