Crafted in durable stainless steel, the SwiftStrip is a uniquely curved tool that combines holes to easily strip off the leaves of herbs and leafy greens with a razor-sharp, beveled edge blade at the end for trimming stems. The SwiftStrip offers a mixture of different size holes to make it a cinch prepping all types of herbs and “super food” leafy greens. The tool’s largest hole is specifically sized to accommodate trendy and delicious Tuscan kale (also known as lacinato, dinosaur and palm tree kale).  A mixture of different size holes makes it easy to use the SwiftStrip to prep a wide range of herbs and other types of leafy greens. The clever tool’s stainless steel body is sturdy enough to provide leverage when pulling stems from tough greens without having to worry about breakage.

FAQs

What herbs does this strip?

In testing, we found it strips, thyme, rosemary, cilantro, basil, and other small stemmed herbs. 

Why should I de-stem herbs or kale?

  • Some herbs, like thyme, rosemary, oregano, tarragon, and marjoram have tough woody stems.  These stems change the texture of the dish, and if used in soups should be strained out.
  • For garnishing, using the leaves without stems guarantees the best presentation.
  • When making Kale chips, or sautéing Kale, the stems take longer to cook leaving tough or chewy bites in the dish. 
Are stems edible? 
  • Yes, most stems are edible and can add flavor, so you don't have to throw them away, instead, put them into a plastic bag and freeze with other vegetable left-overs to make a vegetable stock.
  • Use the stems of herbs inside of a chicken when roasting.
  • Stems can be used when making herb salts.
