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.
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.
- If you are right-handed you will push away and (I suppose) you want to push in towards you if you are left-handed.
- It would be good to wear a anti-cut glove on the hand holding the fruit or vegetable you are cutting.
- Start with something easy like zucchini.
You do not have to go straight through unless you want regular matchsticks, you can roll as you push to get curlier julienne. It feels safer that way too.

Works well but the slices are a bit too thin. Maybe there is a larger sliver available. Only one direction so you are pushing away from yourself if it is in your right hand. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Shawn Pauliszyn
