If you don’t have one of these babies in your kitchen, you really gotta get one.  For 15 bucks you will save oodles of time slicing (julienne-ing) your veggies.  

It has this adjustable blade so you can vary the thickness of your slices with one little click.  Really – even the $15 version does this.  Of course you can spend more and get other fancy options, but all you need is the basic one to change your life.  

Trust me on this one.  You will thank me!  Just don’t misplace the plastic thingie that you use to guide the veggies over the blade or you will lose your finger tips, and then you will be cursing me instead of thanking me 😉
