The perfect companion for healthful eating, this spiral slicer easily creates fruit and vegetable spirals that add interesting textures and flavors to any meal. Make tasty zucchini noodles as a gluten-free alternative to traditional pasta, French-fried potato bird’s nests, beautiful garnishes and more. Three interchangeable blades deliver uniform spirals in coarse, medium and fine widths. The easy-to-use rotating arm features a toothed disk at the base that holds foods securely against the blades and keeps hands safely away from the cutting surface.
To use, slice off either end of the fruit or vegetable to provide a stable, uniform surface. Center and press the handle down until food is secured between the disk and the cutting surface. Using slight downward pressure, turn handle—cut spirals will drop from the bottom of the unit. Blades are easy to swap out—simply loosen the bolt until the blade drops from its housing, then insert the blade that matches your desired texture and retighten.

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
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
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
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
What I did not like about his was the tiny pieces that you have to first cut the vegetables into.... it took me FOREVER to slice a zucchini..... i could have just chopped it by hand. I tried it a few times and decided for the money it just wasn't worth it. Took it back and got a different model for about half as much (which I still dont love but like more than this one.)
I also did not like how the blades were changed... and so small! i probably would have lost the blades or cut myself on them by now.
I also felt like i had to put ALL of my body weight into it to make it work with any sort of efficiency. maybe it doubles as a work out machine?
What are the dimensions of the cutter?How large of a potato can you use?Can you put potato on skewer before cutting?What parts are plastic?Thank

Best Answer:Create decorative ribbons of zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, potatoes, and daikon radish. Slicer grips the top of any firm vegetable and rotates it against the changeable stainless-steel blade.Dimensions:9 3/4"" Tall from the top of the handle to the bottom5"" Long and 3 3/4"" WideYou really want to make sure you are not using a potatoe that is any bigger than 3"" tall and about 3"" in diameter to ensure that it is able to be secured into the devise. If you are working with larger potatoes you will have to cut them into smaller pieces prior to loading them into the cooks help. This product is primarily plastic with stainless steel screws, blades, spike and the long portion of the handle is stainless steel to make it stronger
Barely 4 inches from top to bottom of the cutting area.But given the flimsy construction of this product, I have not dared to put a potato on it yet.It handles zucchini and wet vegetables fairly well.The problem is the thinness of the plastic frame and platform.Good luck
Some spiralizers on the market have gotten bad reviews because there is a sort of ""core"" left on the attachment prongs after the whole length of vegetable has gone through the spiralizing blades. Will this version do that, or will it use the entire vegetable

Best Answer:Below is a link to a 5 minute video that I think will answer your question very well. This slicer does not leave a core. It utilizes most of the vegetable , but it does leave behind a small one or two inch disc from the end of the vegetable.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FPah4YzQ7
Ditto with this product. About a half inch of food.But I doubt you will find a product that can cut all of the vegetable with no waste. Think about it, there will be always be some waste at the point that the food holder prongs reach the cutting blade
Best Answer:Most of this item is plastic, including the four legs. The plastic is a medium grade and thinly used.Key parts, such as the legs and cutting platform and the frame, needed to be much more durable.If you accidentally sat on this it would flatten instantly.thinBlades and the center stem only are steel
It is easy to change blades or is there a lot of unscrewing and little pieces to keep track of?

Best Answer:Create decorative ribbons of zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, potatoes, and daikon radish. Slicer grips the top of any firm vegetable and rotates it against the changeable stainless-steel blade. These blades are pretty simple to change. They do have to be unscrewed and screwed back in, however there are not a lot of little pieces that you would need to keep track of
