With 3 sizes to choose from, it's hard to know which cabbage shredder will work best for you. Since I know these products well (we've been selling them for almost 5 years now!), I'm happy to offer our customers my take on the advantages of each size!
Our most popular size by sales is the Medium Cabbage Shredder.
This size of shredder seems to offer the best balance of features and price. It has the cabbage holder box which makes shredding much easier and safer. While it's not a small shredder at 2 feet long, it doesn't take up as much space as the large size. For most customers, the Medium size will work great. When a customer asks which size to buy, I most often recommend the Medium Cabbage Shredder.
If you make a lot of sauerkraut and have the space for it, the Large Cabbage Shredder is the way to go!
The Large Cabbage shredder is just that, large! It's wider and longer than the Medium size shredder, which makes it harder to find a place to store. The extra width means it has a larger cabbage holder box, which in turn means a bigger chunk of cabbage can be shredded at once. The extra length makes the shredding process much smoother as you can build more momentum in each slide across the blades. If you have the space for the Large Cabbage Shredder, it really does make quick work of shredding your cabbage.
If you are tight on space, or like a finely shredded cabbage, I recommend the Small Cabbage Shredder.
The biggest disadvantage of the Small shredder is that it doesn't have a cabbage holder box. But, it is also much more compact and therefore easier to store, especially if you live in a small house or apartment. Another unique feature of the Small Cabbage Shredder is that the blades are set closer together, giving you a shred of about 1/16" versus the Medium and Large shredders which have about 1/8" shred.
Hopefully this "insider" information will help you make an informed decision about which size will work best for you! Which one will you choose?
