The Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Vegetable Slicer Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable failed and was returned immediately. It mangled the zucchini, didn't make noodles but clunky, misshapen strings, and wobbled all over the place. The suction cup feet were a joke. The carrot I tried never did get sliced into julienne strips but stayed in thick bands. (Yes, I had the julienne blade in!) And after slicing, the teeth were bent in all directions!
I can only figure that the one a reviewer bought & raved over 3 years ago was made by a different supplier. This sort of thing happens all the time... companies change suppliers for one reason or another and the quality goes down. Possibly the "good" recent reviews are for machines which were made 3 years ago and just now found in an attic???
I also tested the Gefu Spirelli Spiral Cutter GEFU Spirelli Spiral Cutter. It was about as disapointing as the Paderno and was returned right away. Read some of the 1 or 2 star reviews to understand why it was bad. Really never worked at all! Very gimmick-y. Makes me wonder if anyone actually tests these things before manufacturing them!

Recently I was offered a review copy of the Pridebit julienne peeler. There are a number of peelers like the Pridebit that all look the same (just search for julienne peeler and look at all the clones). Having used them both now it seems like there is no major difference, and hence no real reason to pay more for the Kuhn Rikon peeler. The nice thing actually about the other 'generic' peelers is that the blade is mounted closer to the top, so it's easier to peel large vegetables. The Kuhn Rikon peeler blade sits inset from the top about 3mm or so. The attached photo shows the difference.
That all said, my Kuhn Rikon blade is still pretty sharp after a year of use. It's hard to say if the other peeler will hold up as well. I'll update my review on both these products if I notice a difference, but for now I don't think it's necessary to pay more for this unit.
Using this peeler I've managed to cut myself quite a few times. It's not for lack care - it just slips sometimes and the sharp, knife-like tines that make the julienne cuts very easily can slide and julienne your fingers or the area between thumb and forefinger.
Again, it's a good piece to have in the kitchen. It just merits a little care in its use.

Julienne blade fell out after about 3 months of light use. Emailed the company twice and received no reply. Like the idea but not a fan of the product.Published 13 days ago by Kimberly
