I have one of those stripper gadgets and it does work great, but you can't do it gently--you really have to just whip the greens or herbs thru!

If you're a gadget lover and/or need easy tools to use, this greens stripper from Chef'n might be right up your alley. It won't take up a lot of room in your gadget drawer and it doesn't cost much. It makes short work of the task of stripping the stems from greens. I haven't had mine very long, so I can't vouch for any greens but leafy kale and Swiss chard. It worked quite well with both of them. It will be useful for parsley when I only want leaves and no portion of the stem. I haven't tried it on fresh thyme or rosemary yet.

Since I am still recovering from what turned out to be major hand surgery, I appreciate being able to strip kale with little effort. I don't think it would be useful at all for collard greens. Since I don't like mustard or turnip greens, I am not familiar enough with their stem sizes to comment on them. Here's a review from The Kitchn www.thekitchn.com/the-chefn-looselea

If you want to skip the gadget but don't want to use a knife to strip the stems from greens, here's a tried and true method. It's the one I used before I developed problems with my hand.

Happy stripping!
