cut cabbage into "angle hair" like the kind that is sold in bags at the grocery store? The grater attachment on my food processor does not grate the cabbage as fine as I would like. (I have a Cuisinart.) Thanks!

Try a mandoline.

Try a mandoline.
This is exactly what I use. My husband bought is for me from an Asian food store.....I thought it was a little pricey but I've had it for years and love it....I would definately buy one again. It also does more cuts than what your wanting.

What brands do you recommend? I need one but the ones I see on Amazon have really low ratings. Thx!

Revvell, a mandoline sounds like a good idea. Thanks. I must tell you that I've never used one before because I'm afraid of them. I fear that parts of my fingers may end up in my vegetarian vegetables. This probably sounds silly to most RAWbies. (Have I made a complete fool of myself yet?)
Actually, I saw two or three brands of mandollines not long ago in Bed, Bath, & Beyond. But I got chills thinking of using them.
Any non-mandoline ideas--until I buck up and find some bravery?

When I bought my mandoline, I also bought a special glove that does not get cut and protects my hand and fingers.

The Japanese have some awesome mandoline-type of shredder/grater/slicer gadgets. Benriner is the brand, if I'm allowed to mention this here. I got my two at Soko Hardware here in San Francisco years ago and they are still good. You can get replacement blades, etc. for them as well, which I've done exactly once in the time I've had them, which is saying something! Another great thing about these is that you can stick them in your bag of food if you're going camping or something too as they're not really bulky at all. I love 'em. Just last night in fact I thinly shredded both purple and green cabbages, putting the green in one half of the bowl, and the purple in the other half, added salt and lime juice to both and let marinate for 10 minutes or so. With mint leaves, this was a fab light salad and looked so pretty too!
