OK for the price, spend a few more for the World Cuisine ...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: New and Essential Spiralizer Tri-Blade Spiral Vegetable Slicer (Kitchen)
I've only tried this on zucchini and raw beats to make skinny noodles. Zucchini is a breeze. Raw beets are harder. When you use the amount of force required to push as your turning, the feet don't stay put so it's a bit difficult. Clean up is very easy.
It did not come with any instructions. There was no paper insert explaining anything. There are photos on the outside of the box, though, that pretty much makes it obvious so I didn't think that much of it until my sister purchased the World Cuisine tri-blade slicer. It was only a few dollars more yet had so many more favorable reviews. I think if i could do it over again, i would have ordered that one instead.
Here's my list of differences (see photos):
1. the World Cuisine came with instructions.
2. the World Cuisine had the blades covered in plastic
3. the New & Essential had screws that looked stripped
4. the blades on the New & Essential do not look as well mounted
It seems to me that the New & Essential used the same factory molds for the plastics, but somehow is just a tad shoddier. OR...I just got a refurb that was not properly identified as such.
In terms of workmanship, i can't really complain because it works as I had expected. If not the World Cuisine model you should opt for the Benriner Cook Helper Slicer because pushing downward would be easier than counting on suction feet to stay clamped I think.

No prob. I just wish that Amazon would have posted the photos that I had uploaded of the 2 items side-by-side. Happy shopping!

I probably had purchased that around May 2012.

thank you, I'm going to get this one and see how well or long it last and then get the stainless steel one on the home page.

By World Cuisine did you mean Paderno? If it was the case then yes it seems a more decent product. But you may want to update your review as I've come across other products that apparetnly offer more than the Paderno for less. This comparison is really useful: http://www.amazon.com/review/RSE2UG98ACMZD/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00I8N1JK6. If anyone can chime to offer your opinion that'd be great. I'm still on the fence about what to buy.

Thank you for posting those pictures! I already own this and didn't realize it until I saw the box. I never quite figured out how to use it properly. Before buying another slicer I'm going to go dig it out of the closet it and give it another shot.
