Someone has to understand: Benriner Turning Slicer

dani_k | Feb 8, 201010:02 PM     9

Ok, so I wanted one of these badly. Then I was reading Happy in the Kitchen (M Richard) which only made it worse! Then, the day after talking about this great desire for such a gadget, I was at Home Hardware with my husband looking for something completely other and I wandered into the the kitchen area (of course) and found a clearance shelf (of course) and there covered in dust admist the discounted crap was a Benriner Turning Slicer. It was marked 60% off the old Canadian price of $139. I was stoked. The cheapest I've found these online was $89 plus shipping and customs to Canada. I asked about the box and other two blades (it just had the fine shred installed) but nothing could be found - no one at the hardware store had a clue what this was. They offered to sell it to me for $25.

I was giddy!!!!

Took it to my chef friend's house and we made the potato baskets from Happy in the Kitchen and sat there and looked at it with smiles on our faces.
