I had some zucchini angel hair with pesto at a potluck and was so amazed by it, I have been seeking the right tool for the job ever since. The little Joyce Chen gadget many seem to rave about gets such mixed reviews, I was afraid to try it. When I came upon the Benriner, I was sure I knew which brand I wanted - but was not sure whether I should go with the cook help (upright) model or the horizontal model.

I couldn't really find anything comparing the two. Best I could tell, they were the same, but one you pushed down on, and the other you pushed sideways one. The most compelling reasons to go with the upright model seemed to be cost and it seems like it should be easier to push down, than sideways. The most compelling reason to go with the horizontal model were the pile could grow bigger as you worked and you wouldn't have to move the unit, you could use bigger chunks of vegetables, and it seemed you could do a cabbage. I could not find a picture of cabbage being done on the upright one. For some reason I really want to do a cabbage on this thing so I got very hung up on that idea.

I'll spare you the details of HOW I ended up with 2 of them... but I did. The Cook Help we were going to return but ended up giving it to my mother in law and in the interest of science we tested both units. So now I can write what may be the lone review comparing the two units. (She was here while we did this, it wasn't a case of we used it and then said "Hey, here's a present for ya!" - just so I don't sound rude or anything here, LOL)

I did some zucchini on mine, with the medium blade. It worked GREAT. Yes, it does feel like the Play Doh Fun Factory for adults. Yes, the blades are very sharp.

This is a very innovative gadget. It will turn any firm vegetable (eggplant, e.g.) into spaghetti-like strands that can be deep-fried and plated for a stunning effect. It has several different serrated blades, so the dimension of the strands can be changed. The base and most of the components for this device are light-weight plastic. Although the Kanekichi is cleverly engineered, placing a vegetable in the 'sled' and turning the handle, I found I had to apply some pressure to get it to move through the blades - a little awkward since the device is light enough to slide around on the table top. Also, anything moderatly 'squishy' isn't going to work well. This does seem sturdier than the Joyce Chen model, based on reviews of the latter. However at $75, the Kanekichi is seriously over-priced, unless you're truly desparate for a device that will turn vegetables into attractive ribbons.

Just got done with my first try with the BN5. It couldn't have been easier. I don't know how anyone is having trouble keeping the slicer from moving around: Just use both hands. One hand to turn the crank and the other to hold the blade mast and push the crank carriage, with an easy pinch movement. Perhaps if you had very small hands, or were trying to slice an extremely dense and woody vegetable it would be a problem. However, I put a zucchini through with a feather touch, no problems. The noodles turned out better than expected and actually tasted almost like pasta once sauced up right. I cooked for two minutes this time, but may try a bit less to see if I can get the zucchini to stay a little more firm, if that's possible.

Construction of the device is substantial. It's "plastic", which I'm thinking is ABS by the looks of it, and does not feel cheap at all. In any case, it seems like it would be near impossible to break this slicer. Changing or cleaning blades is a snap and replacement would be just as easy. Just turn the thumb screw and slide the blade out.

Highly recommended for Paleo eating!

First and foremost I must thank ALL of the AMAZON reviewers on all of the recent products that I have had to research to supplement my kitchen gadgets and tools. Negative and positive reviews have been so useful in helping me make very important decisions that save me TIME and MONEY. I live in a location that does not many specialty stores and so AMAZON has been invaluable over the years, and especially now more than ever.

Now to the review of the Benriner. I had a very difficult time in this particular purchase even upon reading reviews. I could not decide if I should just get a mandoline slicer or get the cheaper spiulizer. It was quite agonizing.

In the end I decided to get thie Benriner Turner Slicer and a Matfer 2000s Mandoline (this was even a more difficult purchasing decisions). There do not seem to be "perfect" overal products in this genre of gadgets no matter what your price range. The cheaper you go it appears that the gadgetry will be more of a fad and will most likely not be useful in the long run.

I needed a sprializer for raw pasta (zucchini, cabbage, jicama) and for garnishing (carrots, purple cabbage, etc...). I have used this gadget in a restaurant setting previously. I was familiar with this product but had not used it for the raw pasta, only for the garnishing aspect. The carrot I used today was larger in diameter and please not that the size of a pen will be the inner core that remains after you spiralize the entire carrot. I will use them for juicing.

The directions were VERY helpful.
The blades were VERY easy to use.
The pushing part is EXCELLENT. Some reviewers may be using different parts of the hand.
