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.
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.

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.
