I find this tool to be great when I'm making sandwiches or a salad and just need a bit of carrot or cucumber or whatever. Also works well for potatoes; put your fine shreds into cold water, then drain well and dry with paper towel or a dishtowel. Toss with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, whatever you like and bake in the oven. Doesn't work well to do sweet potatoes this way though, they just end up mushy.

Makes nifty, attractive shreds of food, but be careful - this is very sharp. I have julienned my finger at least once. Works better for larger foods like potatoes.

The quality of construction seems excellent in this cutter, and it feels good in one's hand. It takes only slightly more pressure than peeling a vegetable, and for softer ones like zucchini, it takes no extra pressure at all. It's very easy and makes nice small julienne strips. They are a healthy addition to salads, soups, and sandwiches, and I now use them much more often and in a greater variety of dishes than I did before I bought this cutter.

My suggestion for easier cutting, since the blade is so sharp, is to stand the vegetable on end and insert a regular thin knife into the center of it. (It works best with softer veggies, but it can be done with hard ones too.) Then, holding the knife vertically, use the other hand to cut with the peeler along the side of the vegetable. You can have as long or as short julienne slices as you wish; just make your vegetable piece longer or shorter according to the length of strip you want. Putting a knife in the center gives you a good hold and keeps your fingers away from the julienne cutter. It also allows you to cut closer to the core of the vegetable, so little is wasted.

The other suggestion I have is that instead of re-using the plastic cover that comes with the gadget, which I think can pose a risk of cutting you as it's removed, just use a small strip of felt or some other fabric to wrap over the blade before storing it.

I love this gadget and would recommend it highly! It's dishwasher-safe too.

Bought this as I regularly seem to need julienne carrots. This product makes this process a breeze. As easy to use as a vegetable peeler, only instead of peels you get nice mini carrot sticks. Works well with carrots & cucumber. Beautiful results.

Handy Peeler. Does julienne carrots and peppers in a fraction of the time it takes on a mandoline. I use it in a professional kitchen for a great labour saver.

Was unsure when I ordered but now that I have it I am very impressed. Was going to order a Benriner slicer to do the same job at 10X the price. It arrived very quickly and performs exactly like the photo show. Very pleased. Thank you

A very helpful tool to have in your kitchen. My daughter made a carrot cake and used the julienne cutter instead of a shredder, and it came out beautiful.
Great for salads, soups anything else you need shredded.

Outstanding product!

I recently paid a fortune for a mandolin (cutting tool) but returned it because it was a pain to use, clean, and store. I bought it to make julienne strips. Then I saw this product and I ordered it. Upon first use, I found it intuitive to use and i was an expert julienne carrot cutter in seconds. This is very easy to use. I am left-handed and I have to use my right hand to cut. I am not ambidextrous and I still found this very simple to cut with my right hand cutting away from the body (much safer!). I showed my friend how much I could cut in under one minute and filled a large bowl. Two carrots makes a nice salad for 3-4 people depending on what you add to the salad. Great product decent price!

Really wish I had seen this little gem before I dropped a bundle on a spiralizer ... This tool worked very well to make long strands of carrot, zucchini, eggplant and broccoli stem ... a huge bowl of "veggie pasta" was ready to stir fry up in just a few minutes.. and clean up could not be much faster! I am ordering 2 more for family! Highly recommend it over the Oxo julienne peeler which I bought a couple weeks before. It is VERY sharp.. I laid the vegetables down on a cutting board and held one end while I ran the tool over the veggies away from me. This leaves a bit of "waste" which I just chopped up with a knife for use in something else.
