Kinpira’s Julienne Peeler slices firm vegetables and fruit into matchstick strips, also known as shoestring strips. Kinpira, meaning ‘julienne’ in Japanese, refers to the long, narrow strips this vegetable peeler creates. A favorite among kitchen gadgets and cooking utensils, Kinpira’s Julienne Peeler slices and juliennes in the same action to save valuable time during food preparation. The julienned strips are uniformly sized so they cook evenly. Quickly prepare julienne cut ingredients for stir frys, sushi, casseroles, or vegetarian recipes, like julienne carrots, zucchini spaghetti strands, make julienne vegetables and fruits as healthy snacks, salad toppings and decorative garnish, in just seconds. Its contoured handle and angled blades are specially designed for comfort, reducing strain on the wrist and minimizing hand fatigue. The built-in safety guard protects fingers from sharp blades and keeps slices neat and manageable. Easy to use, simply set the item to be sliced on a skid-free cutting board. Hold the item with one hand, place the Kinpira Julienne Peeler against the produce and pull it toward you in a straight line. Rotate the vegetable after each cut. Kinpira’s Julienne Peeler is made in Japan using the same traditional method as ancient Samurai swords, with the same quality hardened-steel blade used in chef’s knives. Specially designed to make quick, precision cuts without tearing fruits and vegetables. Highly resistant to corrosion and never needs sharpening. Easy to clean, just hand wash in warm, soapy water.

This julienne slicer is by far the most useful and handy tool for making everything from salads to hash browns to green papaya salad. While it may seem easier to use a mandoline for large vegetables or amounts of vegetables, I've found that using this hand slicer saves me a lot of time and cleanup. You just have to be very careful and get used it holding the vegetables carefully so you don't cut your hand on the super-sharp blades. For me, I usually rotate the vegetable while holding it down on a cutting board so I'm pressing towards the board and not my palm.
My first slicer has been in use for 3+ years and it still performs beautifully. Everyone who sees me using mine wants one. No kidding! Some of my favorite uses include:
- cutting large amounts of carrots, cucumbers (around the seed core) and daikon for lettuce wraps and summer rolls.
- prepping carrots and daikon for simple Japanese or Korean pickled veggies.
- cutting root veggies for serving beds for sashimi etc.
- green papaya for green papaya salad (less waste since easier to cut around seed).
- green mango for pickled garnish or salad.
- apples for salad.
- zucchini noodles (especially nice in chicken broth with tender meatballs).
- potatoes for sturdy deep-fried appetizer nests/baskets (bet this would be great for taro as well).
Cleanup consists of a quick rinse and swipe with bristled brush if necessary to remove debris from blades. Try doing that with the best mandoline!
Also, I often cook away from home - at friends' homes, the church kitchen, on vacation, at a campsite and in our RV. Take this tool with you and you're pretty much set.
Not sure about anyone saying this doesn't work well on hard veggies since it's magic on the freshest carrots and green papayas. Works well on softer vegetables, but I have never tried using it on cheese. Might be harder to clean, but it would probably work :-)
For simple slicing I highly recommend a Benriner. The Benriner also juliennes (and has a selection of blades for finer and thicker pieces) but I find I use this tool most often for the task. Just ordered four more to share with my mom and aunties!
