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.
