is there an appliance that can shred spinach?

I'm looking for something to do basically what the title said. I've read that salad-shooters don't do a good job on lettuce or spinach--are there any other kitchen appliances that would work well for this task?

I'm just tired of shredding these leaves by hand, or tediously cutting a bowl of spinach with a knife and fork.

Just chiffonade them if you have to. With ............ *gasp* a knife! Just stack the leaves, roll them up, and thinly slice them.

There is no substitute in your kitchen for a high quality chef's knife or santoku. Knife skills take a while to develop but are certainly worth the effort.

If you prefer a simpler tool, for small batch sizes this will work nicely:

I've even seen people use a french fry cutter like this to shred larger batches:

I've come to the conclusion that you all are either retarded or illiterate, or both! My post was extremely short and to-the-point. You can count the sentences on one hand! Did I not say specifically that I did not want to rip with my fingers nor cut with a knife?? Actually, that's exactly what I said:

I appreciate the thread attention--but definitely not the replies!

we talking about frozen or fresh? You can always get the leaves slightly damp, pack them in a bag and freeze them, then salad shoot them. Might work?

I've come to the conclusion that you are too fucking lazy to deserve the help of anyone here. In the time it took you to post this thread you could've shredded pounds of spinach. If tearing up a few leaves is that big a deal, invent the "spinach shredder" yourself.

Maybe this thread should be your first clue that your fingers or a knife are the best way and a machine to do something this simple hasn't been invented yet.
