I purchased the Benriner Cook Helper for making raw pasta from squash and zucchini. After researching other spiral slicers (including the two more popular brands: Joyce Chen 51-0662 Saladacco Spiral Slicer, White, World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer), I ran across a forum on a cooking website where many people swore by the Benriner and had purchased it to replace the two aforementioned brands. I'm glad I found that forum, because it led me to search for the Benriner on Amazon.

First, the Benriner is sturdy, despite the fact that it's plastic. I've cranked on it pretty ruthlessly, and I'm sure it will hold up to years of use. It does a good job making raw pasta from zucchini and squash. Carrots are tricky because of the size--play around with the way you slice them first, and you'll get it to work. One of my favorite uses for the Benriner is spiralizing beets. It makes quick work of an otherwise messy job, and a spiral-sliced beet salad is one of the sexiest summer meals you'll ever meet.

You'll have to play with the blade attachments to find the one that works for each veggie: sometimes on harder veggies, the smaller size works best. Just be patient, and you'll learn to play well with your new kitchen helper.

The Benriner doesn't speak English too fluently--the box and the directions are unclear, but they're so darn cute that it's ok. You don't need the directions anyway--this tool is easy to use, the blades swap out easily, and it's easy to clean.

The Benriner Cook's Helper originated in Japan and aren't we glad that its made its way to the US! A very reliable spiral slicer offering true versatility and durability. Made of ABS and Nylon reinforced resin, this spiral slicer is here to stay! Just crank and churn with the option of cutting continuous strings, strips or curly strands with four different blades to choose from (1) Flat edged blade, and (3) Tooth edged blades (Coarse, Medium and Fine) This is all you'll need to get you're creative juices flowing. You can create beautiful salads, elegant garnishes and main courses, if you're a Raw Foodist. The famous Spaghetti type strands that all raw food diets long for, using yellow squash and Zucchini turn into beautiful replicas of their wheat counterparts. Want to experiment with super thin slices of cucumbers, potatoes, carrots, bell pepper and onions etc; be my guest because you can't go wrong! Everything turns out beautifully every single time. Cleaning is also a snap, just use soapy water to wash, rinse well and dry...that's it!

WARNING: handle blades with care....they are extremely sharp! You can also expect to replace your blades at some point during the lifetime of your Benriner, because inevitably they will become dull. Replacement blades are available on quite a few websites (do you're homework because I can't list them here) I've seen the complete set listed for approximately fourteen dollars. I agree with those who say this item is pricey and compared to the numerous poorly made spiral slicers on the market today, it certainly is. However, because of the level of reliability that you get with the Benriner its well worth every penny!

Even though this item is more lightweight than I expected it to be, it is made of sturdy extruded plastic and has done a really nice job on cucumbers and zucchini so far. I have made ribbons and also vegetable noodles and they have turned out very well. It is easy to clean as long as you rinse it just after using. I barely even dry mine before I put in back in the pantry. The blades are very sharp so the turning of the handle is pretty effortless. The three detachable blades it comes with fit perfectly into an empty prescription pill bottle, so that is how I am storing them in my kitchen drawer. They are very sharp, so you do need to put them into something rather than having them loose in a drawer. The only thing I don't like about this slicer, and it's something I knew before I bought it, is that the seeds of the vegetable are sliced in with everything. One other spiral slicer I've seen leaves the core of the seeds. It's something I would have preferred, but that model was on backorder. This is a nifty kitchen gadget that adds unique texture to vegetables so they seem different than the same old slice, chop, or dice. Would recommend.
UPDATE AFTER RECEIVING WORLD CUISINE SPIRAL SLICER - I have to say the newer slicer I received kind of puts this model to shame. I will probably wind up giving this one to a friend. The World Cuisine Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer is easier to use and stays in place better on the counter because it has a larger footprint.

My wife wanted to be able to make spaghetti-thin strands of carrot, beet and other vegetables, to add to salads and soups. This thing fits the bill perfectly, and works like a charm. The only caution is that it is difficult to figure out how to use it from the instructions, which are in Japanese with a hit-and-miss (and sometimes humorous) English translation. Once I got it working, though, it was fast and easy to shred and slice vegetables, and fast and easy to clean. Highly recommended.
