    I like the cryovac'd packs of sundrieds that when you open them they stay clumped together. That way I can just grab a fist sized clump and julienne the whole thing in a minute. The ones that fall apart in into individual pieces I smack with my fist to help flatten, stack them, then julienne. Never really noticed too much edge degradation just from doing sun drieds. After a 5# pack my edges feel basically the same.

    Find a way to convince yourself that you can pulse them in the Robo.

    I normally just stack them then push them down to flatten out a bit, i will make a bunch of stacks as much as i need line them up and slice them all the way down works very well and is quite fast, i have never noticed my knife getting dull from it though.. maybe its the cutting board?? I use poly boards all the time and still haven't noticed that happening at all. Or are you using too much pressure?

    Pressure and board might be a factor, just as steel and edge. I noticed less dulling with a VG-10, but it has a less acute edge than my carbons, so I find it hard to blame the stuff's acidity. This is why I asked for you guys' experience.

    Meat grinder to robo-coupe to vita-prep then mashed through a chinoise.
    But seriously, I hate dried tomatoes.
