First saw this bean slicer on a Jamie Oliver show and knew I had to have it! It hasn't disappointed!! I've taken it with me when visiting family, and most of them have expressed an interest in owning one as well. Thank you, Sur la Table!!
I've owned this product for 30+ years but haven't used it in over 20 however after seeing it still available on the SLT website a thought came to mind.
Yesterday I was attempting to cut asparagus lengthwise in even slices and wasn't too successful. I had also used a parer in the past but the resulting ribbons were not uniform. After seeing this tool this morning, I quickly searched for it, found it and tried slicing aspargus with it and was sooooo pleased to learn that it WORKED!
This tool is perfect for easily slicing asparagus lengthwise. I did cut the head of the asparagus first and the stock was in perfect slices. Excellent for stir fry
