I read about this peeler on a blog that was telling you how to make zucchini pasta without having to go out and buy one of those vegetable spiralizer contraptions. The zyliss julienne peeler did as she said. It slices up a zucchini into nice sized noodles. I've yet to try it on other vegetables but it worked perfectly for zucchini.

No more slimy julienned carrots. I bought this julienne peeler after seeing one for the first time in a Pampered Chef book and since I love gadgets I was thrilled but a sample was not available to play with. It is the only one I have ever tired so I can't compare it to any others but it does a great job on carrots: After removing the outer peel,(Someone needs to makes a utensil that both peels and juliennes) I place a medium sized carrot on a flat surface, while holding one end and starting in the middle of the carrot I pull the peeler toward me turning the carrot until the carrot is too thin to make contact with the peeler, leaving a pencil sized end. Then I turn the carrot around and holding on to this end, I julienne the other half. My fingers are never in danger of being cut but it seems pretty sharp so I replace it's guard when it is not in use. I plan to julienne zuchinni to use instead of pasta when I'm watching my carbs and potatoes for hash browns when I'm not.

I wanted to try making "Pasta" from Zuchini and summer squash. I had one of these from Oxo and it was useless and the little blades bent and broke.
This works like a dream and we can carry on with our low carb/Caveman diet while still enjoying our favorite pasta sauces.

After searching fruitlessly for a spiralizer (so I can see how solid they feel), I picked up this little gadget from the Giant Eagle for $8.99. The first time I used it, I was not impressed - the zucchini got too thin and started to break in half, and I ended up nicking the hand holding the vegetable in the air. Then I read in an Amazon review to hold the vegetable down flat on the cutting board, and that worked a lot better. For the firmer carrot, I found it a bit tiring to pull while pushing down, so I spread open the prongs a little to slip the blade out and turned it around. Now I hold the carrot or yellow squash or zucchini down with my left hand, pointing away from my body on a cutting board, and I push the blade along the vegetable away from me. It allows me to use almost the whole length of the vegetable for longer strips. Safe fingers and beautiful thin julianne strips. The top of the blade has the serrations and while you peel with the bottom blade, the vegetable hits the top blade first to get the grooves cut. Can't beat the clean up - just rinse off or pop in the dishwasher,then store in a drawer, and a whole lot less fussy and cheaper than those spiralizer machines.

This peeler came apart the first time I used it. The blade section popped out. I found the small plastic sleeve on the floor, put it back together and it broke again on the next try. Shipped it back.

I am being completely honest in this review, when using this peeler on a normal everyday zucchini squash, upon the second swipe it fell apart, the blade came completely out of the handle, I put it back together only to have it do the same exact thing on the next swipe! Poorly designed. Price was low enough to not make me want to waste my time trying to return it for a refund! I bought one for my Daughter and the same thing happened!

It broke the 2nd time I used it. It's just not sturdy enough. The blade seperated from the plastic. I stuck it back on, but it just slides back out with a little pressure. Would never buy again.

I have used Zyliss products before and thought they were quality. This came completely apart on the third zucchini. So Sad.

I've had julienne peelers that last me for years, but not the case for this particular model. The blade snapped off and broke on the first use. Poor quality and potentially dangerous.
