Hi,

I love all vegetables and vegetable dishes, I'm literally a vegetable maniac :) So I'm constantly looking for a new recipes of the dishes and has recently been very inspired by the idea of spaghetti from different vegetables. For this purpose it is necessary to julienne vegetables. It's uncomfortable to make it with a knife, so I'm looking for a good julienne peeler. I was advised to choose from these models on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Kuhn-Rikon-Julienne-Protector-Stainless/dp/B0000CEWJD/

Maybe some of you already use something similar? What are the benefits, what are the disadvantages? I would be grateful for your help!

I have the precision branded one. It's the number 1 seller on amazon. I don't use it much as I find using a knife more satisfying.

A mandoline is just slightly more and comes with julienne attachments. $23 and it's what you'll see in most restaurant kitchens.

More versatile, durable and faster IMO

Super weird, but I just got this for my birthday this past week, it's both hilarious, and super effective... I made a killer arugula, zucchini, and yellow squash salad with it. You get some really cool long "noodles"

MY GF uses the Kuhn-Rikon and it works well enough. We've been getting some monster zucchinis out of the garden the past 2 summers and have been making a lot of zucchini pasta with a marinara sauce to hide the zucchini since squash is not my favorite vegetable.

What we can't eat or give away has been going to the chickens.

Theres a vietnamese tool for that purpose called a cai bao. nice since you can actually remove the guard to sharpen the blade. I know one of the asian markets near me carries them, but I'm sure you can find one online if not in a store. I cant speak for their quality from experience but I've seen a few videos and read enough that as a $5 alternativ I feel its worth recommending.
