Benriner, an Incredibly Convenient Kitchen Tool

Do you know a kitchen tool named "Benriner"?

People engaged in cooking as their profession are likely to know it. It’s so famous in Japan that most chefs know or use it at their restaurants, and it’s highly evaluated as a convenient kitchen tool.

However, it isn’t commonly used at home. This is a hit product used by only people in the know.

We would like to show you the secret of Benriner.

What is Benriner?

Benriner is a replaceable blade slicer for professional use.

Benriner is a replaceable blade slicer for professional use. Besides the flat blade which is initially set on the slicer, three interchangeable blades (fine, medium, coarse) are included in the package. With these blades, you can slice/finely chop/shred vegetables and adjust slice thickness from 0.3 to 4 mm. You can change the blades by hand with adjustment screw on the side without using screw drivers.

The blades are interchangeable by hand with adjustment screw on the side.

Let’s see how it actually slices vegetables.

Flat Blade

We are going to slice a Japanese white radish with Benriner.

We are going to slice a Japanese white radish, which is often used as a garnish for sashimi. We first cut it into appropriate size, peel it and slice it with each of these blades.

It can slice vegetables efficiently into large sheets

The first thing we realize is that the slicer is very easy to handle.

With enough width and length, it slices the radish efficiently into large sheets as if the professional Japanese restaurant chefs do.

It can slice vegetables into thin pieces

We can make slices either thinner or thicker if we adjust thickness.

Coarse Blade

Next, we are going to use the coarse blade. It is easy to replace blades.

Coarse Blade produces thicker slices.

The coarse blade produces thicker slices. If you further cut these slices into 3 cm strips, then they can be good ingredients for Miso soup.

Midium Blade

The middle blade produces thinner slices than the coarse blade.

The middle blade produces thinner slices than the coarse one. These slices are good for "Namasu" (thin vegetable strips seasoned vinegar and sugar, for instance Japanese white radishes, carrots, etc.).

Fine Blade

Safety attachments

While we slice the vegetable, it gets smaller, and we might accidentally cut our hand. To prevent this, the safety attachment is also included in the package.

With the safety attachment, we can keep slicing the vegetable safely until the end.

With this put into the vegetable, we can keep slicing the vegetable safely until the end.

The fine blade produces even thinner slices, and these slices can be good "Tsuma" (a garnish for sashimi).

good

Benriner is a very efficient slicer which is convenient for mass production. Also, it can be disassembled for easy washing.

Comparison of the Strips

Comparison of the Strips

We compare the strips produced by each blade. The first one from the left is the flat blade, and the coarse, medium and fine blade follow in this order.

It is wonderful we can not only make variety of vegetable slices with this one slicer but also prepare a large amount of vegetables quickly and efficiently. We are sure it would save lots of time and energy for cooking.

Why don't you get Benriner, a commercial-grade slicer for time/cost saving?
