I have not been disappointed with the slicer. I've cut cucumber, carrots, beets, radishes, jicama, fennel, zucchini, yellow squash and, kohlrabi. Great for making mixed veggie slaws and of course zucchini noodles. My goal was to cut back on pasta noodles and to eat more salads and this gadget is very helpful for improving my diet.
Addressing the haters: yes, at first unpacking it seems flimsy. But it's not. The box says nylon - not plastic. There is "give" in this material. What's going to break first- rigid thin plastic that snaps from stress placed on it, or a material that has a little flexibility? The two curving pieces that go from the handle to the platform are where you hold it with your other hand to support it. Downward pressure as you turn it, stops slipping and helps ensure smooth slicing. The vegetable piece must be trimmed so the cut face is level for best results.
Some have complained they didn't know how to put the blades in - each blade has an arrow on one side. You insert the blade so the arrow is facing you and pointing to the spike where the piece of vegetable is anchored.
Some have complained there's no place to store the blades. Really? I wrapped the blades in a piece of foil and keep that in a small Ziploc bag in the box with the slicer. Due to limited cupboard space, I keep the slicer in it's box horizontally on top of something else. I really like how compact it is.
To be honest, I've not needed the 3rd blade and so this is why I'm giving it 4 stars. I usually use the 1st blade and sometimes the 2nd blade. Oh and the permanent blade for ribbons. The 3rd blade would only cut hard root vegetables. It should be obvious that the blades work best on hard and firm vegetables. Softer ones like cucumber are best with the permanent blade in place to make wide ribbons. I've yet to try something like cabbage.
With any spiraling slicer, there's always going to be a nub of vegetable that's wasted. So, use common sense and minimize this by not cutting the top of the carrot etc. Some have complained the slices were too short... I've had no trouble turning out long noodles. I don't know what they were hoping for - jump rope lengths?
This gadget works well for singles, couples or families who don't mind putting in a little food prep time to shred enough for a larger serving. You can prep ahead and have your zucchini noodles in the fridge ready to make a quick weeknight meal. If you're pressed for time and need to make enough noodles for a large family AND want to do this daily. Or you're doing catering etc. then look for a larger one. Benriner does make a larger slicer that's horizontal. Otherwise it takes no longer to spiral slice a carrot then it does to grate one - and your knuckles will be saved from being cut on the grater.
Set up and clean up are a breeze--not a lot of excess parts. Swish and dry.
The blades seem to be high quality. The plastic housing put me off at first, but it will not rust and it seems adequate for the job.
If you have time, put your spiralized raw pasta in a food dehydrator to warm for 30 minutes, then add your sauce. Makes a warm "comfort food" out of raw ingredients.
There are several you tube videos showing this tool in action. It is easy to use. It does one thing well.
If you are adopting a raw lifestyle and plan to eat veggie pasta, you will need a spiralizer. If you are tentative, buy the cheapest one. This Benriner is neither at the top or bottom of the price range for spiralizers. It is affordable and has great blades.
I am glad I bought this one. It works for me.
Update: I also noticed it seems to do this when the onions are big. Sometimes if you peel a couple of layers off it will then go through the slicer but then you have a bunch of outer peelings of onions you end up either tossing or cutting up. Not the end of the world but a little inconvenient. These outer peelings don't cut up near as well as the inner ones.
