So, I didn't want to spam up the B/S/T forums, therefore I have started a new thread:
whats the appeal of the jumbo benriner? the only decent applications I could think of are fairly impractical like onion rings (to batter, but why not just use a gyuto a good onion ring is 5-7mm width) or like... I dunno. Cabbage can be pretty tricky with a mandoline if you don't want to end up with huge chunks of the core in your coleslaw or whatever but I've never found it to be too tough with the regular benriner. Giant potato souffle (the classical french puffy potato chip thingy)?
