Without sounding too cliché, the Japanese have always been highly innovative – and while you may better associate Japan with big names such as Sony, Shiseido, Nintendo and Canon, there are plenty more Japanese brands helping us out on a smaller scale around the home.
Perfect example? Benriner slicers! Founded in 1940, the first of these slicers was made from wood, and popular among hotels and restaurants. Eventually, the general public fell in love with these clever contraptions, made with Japanese stainless steel blades (known to keep their edger for longer), and now just about anyone can benefit from a Benriner invention.
Slicing vegetables just got a lot
easier, thanks to Benriner’s Japanese Turning Horizontal Slicer. Made from durable plastic, this handy slicing tool will soon become a staple in your kitchen. The slicer comes with three interchangeable stainless steel slicing blades for creating fine, medium and coarse slices - so you can select a specific blade to suit your cooking requirements, and to make uniform slices for your culinary creations every time.
Meanwhile, the slicer stands on four feet, with two rubber stoppers on the base to prevent it from slipping and sliding across your benchtop. The rotating lever design also allows for added safety, as all you need to do is turn the crank to start cutting. Onion rings for your burger, shredded radish for your sashimi and even strings of green pepper for your tacos, you can do it all with Benriner!
