View Full Version : Benriner slicers--Opinions???
06-21-2009, 06:08 PM
I'm looking at both the Benriner Professional and the smaller Cook Help slicers. From the information available, both are similar to the Spirooli but look a lot sturdier.
Any opinions on these?

I have one - got for Xmas from hubby. I love it. It works great. I doubt its the professional - it only cost under a hundred including shipping (I'm in Canada where EVERYTHING is more $$) IT does the job wonderfully.

Thanks, Snoops. I appreciate your input.
After cruising the eBay, I've got my eye on a couple of the Benriners plus a mis-listed Spirooli. Wish me luck!

I have a couple of ones, that are more like mandolines. One has a clear, oblong clear recepticle underneath the flat unit that takes 4 small flat attachments that slide out so you can easily switch - ginger/zext grater, fine shredder, regular shredded and thin slicer, that all fit into the receptacle when not in use - very clever and well-designed like many Japanese gizmos are. Very handy for small amounts of food when you don't want to use the food processor - I've had this one for years. Got it at Soko Hardware in Japantown here in SF. My other one has no receptacle, but has adjustable slicing blades and shredders that work differently from the other one. I tend to use the first one more though, and it's great to take camping. For years I referred to it as my "low-tech food processor" - LOL! I don't have the Cook Help one that is supposed to be great for noodles and curly things though.
