Anything that helps in the kitchen is always a plus in my book. Recently, I had a chance to try out the Spiral Slicer by Kitchen Supreme to see if I can find an easier way of preparing fresh veggies.
The Spiral Slicer came in a nice storage bag, along with a flexible cleaning brush. I was also emailed The Spiral Slicer Recipes Cookbook, 101 Power Tips for a Fitter, Healthier You and the Complete Vegan Cooking Guide. All three of the e-books were very informative and full of great sounding recipes. I learned quite a few helpful tips and advice from reading them.
The Spiral Slicer is black plastic and silver stainless steel with two Julienne size options of 2 x 3 mm and 3.5 x 5 mm. The two rows of blades are made out of stainless steel that are located inside each end of the spiral. A black safety cap is also included to help hold food as you near the end to make it easy to continue to use while protecting your fingers.
To use the Spiral Slicer, place the food item inside the appropriate end (depending on the desired Julienne size), turn the food and then spiral slices would exit from the slit. As you near the end, place the safety cap onto the food and continue to turn inside the Spiral Slicer.
Cleaning was very simple since it is dishwasher safe. I also used the small brush to remove leftover pieces and seeds prior to placing in the dishwasher. It did come out clean and looking good as new.
Overall, I felt that it worked okay. There were a few issues I had while using the Spiral Slicer on cucumbers and also carrots. For the cucumber, it seemed to mush up a bit and clump up inside the tool on both size options. I would have to stop and clean it out in order for it to keep working. The carrot was a normal sized whole carrot, but it was awkward to use in the Spiral Slicer since it did not fill up the entire chamber or most of it, and since the carrots was already peeled, I was not able to have a firm enough grip to have the carrot turn effectively in order to slice into nice spiral pieces.
I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion based upon my personal experiences.
