There’s no way you can cut vegetable into strips quickly and evenly with a knife. If you searched on Taobao, you will find quite a few variations of tools to help you do that. They don’t look convincing. In the end i settled on the tried and true method – the Japanese method.
I wasn’t quite willing to spend so much on a tool that i only use sparingly, so i went for an alternative – a knockoff. 55 Yuan (S$11) is a more than acceptable price for such a tool. It even comes with 4 different blades so you can shred the vegetable into different widths. The suction pad grips the table top very well. The shredded vegetable are not entirely even, but that doesn’t bother me. The box and instructions enclosed are entirely in English, so it’s an export oriented item. Overall, it works as advertised and i am very pleased with the purchase.
