Selected User Reviews For Chef'n Looseleaf Kale, Chard, Collard Greens and Herb Stripper
You can improve your results by changing your technique
Kale, collard greens, and most chard can be stripped with this stripper (as long as the stems aren't too wide), but there is a technique to using it that will make it work much more efficiently. Pull the stem through in a series of short tugs after placing it into the smallest hole that will fit, rather than by pulling it through all at once. It can jam up if you pull it all at once, which results in too soon breaking off of the stem. It takes a little tugging to fully strip out the stem, and you can do that if you pull it firmly enough Put an end to it! Put an end to it! Put an end to it. The leaves will release from the hole as well as allow more stem to pass through before it breaks off completely. The easiest method for cutting the stems of the leaves that have the same size and shape is to stack them and cut them with a knife. However, for greens that have different sizes or curly portions, this little tool is the best way to do this. The following review is provided in the hope that it will help!.

It didn't save me any time
I grow a lot of greens each year and enjoy eating the fresh salad from them however, stemming and cutting up leaves is a chore. Initially, I had high hopes for this little device, but after using it for just a few days, I am back to doing things the old-fashioned Firstly, I would like to say that it is very well built Simply put, I like it. The unit does not have moving parts There's nothing to break here. In essence, it consists of an almost flat disk with holes of various shapes and While I can see how it could work for any size leaf, I found too many leaves that were too large for one hole but of the next size down did not do a good job of removing the leaf, so there was a lot of stem still attached to the leaf. When I started from the bottom hole that fits the bottom of the stem, I was unable to fit it by the time I reached the leaf, because as the stem size decreases it became larger and larger. After I got the stem through and started to separate it from its leaves, a few of the pieces fit nicely, but once I began to strip the leaves from the stem, either the stem broke off, or it ripped or shredded My biggest problem is that I didn't save any time with this device. I pictured running my leaves through this device and having two piles of leaves in 30 seconds -- but I couldn't do it. Two parts of the plant are leaves and It took me that much longer using this device to remove the leaves from the stems as it does using my knife and cutting board, and since it is easier for me to do it with my knife, it is now just sitting in a drawer unused.

There's no need for a monkey to approve! As I prepare diet for my blue tongued skink, I do not seem to use much greens
Using this tool, she can get the most of her diet, since dandelion greens are a very important part of it! Her eating of the stem is difficult, so this way of cutting down on waste and time is helpful. Instead of pulling straight, you should rather pull in a zigzag manner, I believe. The pull, the tug of war Dandelion leaves came off the stem without a problem and did not bunch up as a result of doing it in this manner. This is very handy!.

Here is how they can be used in the future- The one I bought over three years ago was so busy that I just now have the chance to comment on its capabilities as I discovered today that these also have a hidden additional Due to our dietary habits and environmental concerns, I and my spouse have taken it upon ourselves to grow our own fruits, vegetables, teas and herbs
When I would purchase organic farm produce in boxes from farms before my spouse and I had our own home, I would have to remove the leaves from my kale by hand. Having acquired my own home and land soon after my spouse and I got married, I started growing my own food. It is not of much use to throw away the stems of veggies such as kale, but rather sauté them thoroughly so they are tenderized. After I cut the stems of Savannah mustard greens with herb scissors, I often add them to salads alongside Fresh rosemary can be stripped using these style herb strippers, using the stems to make things such as homemade potpourri and vegetarian pizza or add them to an outdoor grill for grilled vegetables. I have just discovered an additional, as far as I am aware, previously unknown use for these types of herb strippers their ability to double as a cleaning tool and non-toxic as well You can also use non-stick pots and pans or outdoor grills to make pizza. Similar to those plastic grill cleaners, they clean grills by wiping them with water. One of our favorite things to do is to use ours when our plastic grill cleaner is dirty as my spouse and I use ours to clean our nonplastic grill cleaner Quickly and easily stick Aroma Professional to any surface. If you want to strip herbs from soft narrow stems like peppermint, it will probably not work very well unless you dry the peppermint first or dehydrate it in a dehydrator before you use it.

It's a time saver, it's a life saver, and it's a Kale can be cooked for many reasons, including the fact that we don't like it
We had to clean the sand off the leaves, dry them, separate the stems, and of course, there was the frustration of starting with a huge amount and ending up with a tiny portion. Using this gadget, all the stems from the leaves can be pulled from one side by pulling the thin cord. It has cut prep time in half. There are just enough sharp edges around the outside to allow you to cut leaves without cutting your fingers when you remove the stems. This time, my husband actually asked, "Can I separate the stems?" Hell yeah, you can certainly do it. The tiny herbs sound amazing! I can't wait to try this out!.

There is a problem with the site that I wish I could fix
While I know there are lots of positive reviews for this tool, I have tried it a number of times on a number of kinds of greens and I just find it easier The device works great on the bottom of turnip, collard, kale, or mustard green stems, but leaves a lot of green on the tips. I also pinch off strawberry stems rather than slice them off and throw them away. In terms of cilantro and basil, I have them It is a pleasure to use it. That's about all there is to The thing about this gadget is that it does a lot of things. My identity remains the same. Each time I buy 15 or more of them, they go into my top kitchen drawer The pot the greens are cooked in must have been big, but I was still willing to pull it out and see how it turned out.
