Love This Little Gadget

DateJune 11, 2014
I bought this last year for when we were making sushi. I love the way it works. (Yes, you do have to hold it with one hand and crank with the other, but that is the way it is designed - so no complaints here!) I use it on carrots, potatoes, everything you could imagine. I can have veggie "pasta" noodles of multiple sizes. Best veggie spiraler I've ever used. Very happy with this item and would recommend it.

Not well built

DateJune 6, 2014
Built with the quality of a child's toy.
You must stabilize the entire apparatus with your left hand, while turning the cutter with your right hand. The upper plastic frame bends immediately.
The thin plastic legs are also not designed for rotational torque. As you turn the rotator handle, the entire apparatus twists on its flimsy thin plastic legs.
I was nervous about this design at the store.
I gave it a try.
But I doubt this cutter will still be working well in a couple years.
It would have been simple to make most of this device out of standard kitchen grade stainless steel. Such a product would likely last for years, and probably longer.
I love the zucchini noodles, and I love the concept of this device so much.
Reluctantly, I will return this and search for a more durable replacement.

Revolutionizes Low Carb Dieting

DateMarch 10, 2014
Love my spiralizer, easy to use, easy to clean, makes great zucchini noodles and also spiralizes any firm vegetable quickly, easily and with good results (beets, sweet potatoes etc). You can use the "noodles" as a satisfying and filling sub for pasta in Italian and Asian "noodle" dishes, or raw in salads as a garnish. Online there are many blogs that use spiralized veg in dishes that are quick prep and delish. I made sweet potato latkes that were healthy and delish.

Great for raw diets

DateJanuary 7, 2013
This spiral slicer is fantastic for raw diets. I've been using it to slice zucchini and carrots into "noodles" for "pasta" dishes. It comes with 3 blades for 3 different widths, and they're really easy to switch in and out for different needs.
I really like how the slicer only leaves about .5" of the vegetable when you're done, so there's not a lot of waste at all.
It also cleans up pretty easily - just run it under hot water and scrub a bit, and pretty much everything just runs off.
My only complaint is that since it's made of plastic, it can be a bit wobbly under pressure. I hold it pretty tightly, but it still wobbles a bit. Not enough to be a deal-breaker, but it is noticeable.
Overall, a fantastic product that can be used for all kinds of things, but is especially good when adhering to a raw diet.

Second to my knife this is it!

DateMay 7, 2012
I use this with celery root. Long look alike noodles in a white cream sauce with shrimp. No one has ever passed this dish up. I use this tool for hash browns, pickle dishes such as beets. Oh the list goes on. I saw one of the top chefs use this tool on the show and I just love it.
