Product Description

Package Quantity: 1 | Style Name: white

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.

Touted by Grace Young (Stir Frying to the Sky's Edge, p135). The best way to extol its virtues is to compare it against the (albeit stylish) stainless Kuhn Rikon (KR) swivel julienne peeler. The KR has a relatively slim (a bit more than .5") straight handle, which is of smooth stainless steel (slippery when wet). The swivel blades bend a bit when force is exerted. Basically, it peels the food, and the julienne "blades" (flat tines, actually) divide the peel. When inspected head on, the tines do not extend past the plane of the blade. The occasional result is scoring, rather than truly slicing. If you're lucky the result is long strips of peel.

The Kinpira's handle is a full easily held 1.5" across. Rather than a swivel peeler, the fixed configuration is that of a series of flat blades that actually score the food DEEPER than the thickness of the oppositely juxtaposed food shaver (rather than a peeler). The result is long strips of julienne, the cross sections of which are 1/16" squares. Thus if one wanted to, one could actually chop a carrot into 1/16" cubes (one fourth that of brunoise).

In any case, to julienne the carrot, see the G. Young page referenced above: hold one end of the carrot with a fork and draw the Kinpira down the vegetable.

Works for soft vegetables like zucchini but is worthless for something tougher like carrots or beets. I'm still looking ...

Product is great so far. Have made spaghetti out of carrots, cucumbers, and squash so far. Being left handed this is a great product as it is ambidextrous. Looks well made, feels good in your hands, and has a metal piece on top to help keep the peeled strands organized and keep you from cutting your fingers. As always I suggest you stop peeling once you get to the seeds, as at that point it might stop shredding the vegetable. Overall great!

I was skeptical, but I took a chance, and I love it! I have dentures and cannot eat some raw root veggies and now I can! I can Julienne them all! The small core that is left, unable to be peeled, because of the flexibility of most root cores won't let you press hard enough, can be chopped and used for something else, or for sprinkling on top of dishes. I like the comfortable hand-grip and the angle of the blade allows me to drag the peeler down and not have to drag it side-ways, like with regular peelers. Easy to clean. For those that are having trouble cleaning the blade, I found my vegetable brush works just great at getting everything out from behind the blade-guard and off of the blade.

I bought one of these almost 15 years ago in a little kitchen shop. I am a chef, and I generally find a good set of knives is all I need, and avoid all other gadgets. But I love this thing! It is still sharp after all these years, but I wanted to get another one for my knife bag, and was delighted to find it here on Amazon. The thing has no brand name on it, just "made in Japan", and I have searched for it in the past to no avail. If you love crispy, firm vegetables such as kohlrabi, turnips, rutabagas, and of course, carrots, but want delicate think strands for slaws or garnish, this is the trick. Produces vegetables as professionally as a mandolin, with much less fuss and muss and cleanup.

I don't understand how someone can require stitches using this tool. It is so much easier than using the Mandoline and cleaning up after. We use this primarily for creating "spaghetti" strands out of squash as opposed to true pasta (sadly pasta has too many calories, carbs etc for more than the occasional serving). Serving squash this way is a major hit with people who think they don't like zuchini. I have also used it for strands of egg plant. For harder veggies like carrots, a mandoline is the better choice. I have two of these devices for each house. My sister and best friend have them as well.

This got more use in the summer for making zucchini pasta, but it did it very well. It is super sharp, so I keep it covered to avoid slicing my fingers up while rummaging around in the kitchen drawer I keep it in. Happy I purchased it.
