4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy purchase, July 23, 2008

This review is from: Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer (Kitchen)
So far, after having the spirooli slicer for 3 weeks, I am quite happy with the product. I have one complaint which would not prevent me from buying it again. Main complaint, the fact that it is made of plastic: I don't fully trust that the plastic crank arm will last forever but it works well and is easy to clean. The plastic arm you must use to apply pressure allowing the vegetable you are slicing to sit tightly against the cutting blades seems like a handle waiting to break. So I don't even use it. I have to place a thumb below the crank and my fingers grip the top of the slicer in order to apply enough even pressure to push the vegetable up against the blade while cranking it. An irritating design flaw. I would prefer that it was made out of stainless steel.

Other than that I am very happy with the product. It does exactly what it says it should do. As a matter of fact, the first time I used it on zucchini, it created an 18 foot long noodle!! Of course, THAT fascinated everyone. I've used it on yams, carrots, onions, zucchini and cucumber....all of which turned out just as I wanted.

Do you get waste, as another reviewer said, from veggies like carrots etc. with small diameters?

Of course there will always be a core left over. It's not waste though. You can just eat it, or use it in something else, like soup.

"I would prefer that it was made out of stainless steel." If this were made out of stainless steel, we would be paying a lot more than $32 for it. :-)

I'm sorry; I never saw your post/question until Amazon notified me that D. Johnson posted. I have not tried small veggies like that because the carrot (as an example) is only slightly larger in diameter than the core that ends up being left over. If they didn't have a substantial stabilizing core, the unit would not work well.
