Whether you want chunky chips or slender vegetable strips, it’s worth investing in the right kitchen kit...

Here's a little slicer that allows you to cut picture-perfect julienne strips of just about any vegetables you like. It's also easy to clean and durable.

Just push the cheese/vegetable/ fruit down the tube on the top and the spinning mechanised blades will do the rest.
3. Koziol Herby Brothers Herb chopper
There is no quicker or easier way to chop up herbs. Just put the green stuff on the board and seesaw the blade over it.

Few things taste as good as your own homemade chips. This gadget has blades for both chunky chips and French fries. Pull the handle, and hey presto.
5. Rosle Gourmet
A beautiful and handy gadget that allows you to slice everything from big peppers to tinsy chunks of truffles with ease and to any thickness you like.
6. Kitchen Craft Plastic Egg
The moment you've used it, you will never want to chop a boiled egg with a knife again. Why would you, when this gives such beautiful, well-balanced chunks.
7. Stainless Steel onion and vegetable chopper
