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.
I press down the suction cups beside a cutting board to catch the zucchini "pasta". If the slicer moves around while I'm spinning the handle, I use my free hand to hold the base steady, while moving the tray handle along with the thumb of that same hand. Very simple. The core that is left over isn't necessarily waste, I either snack on what's left, or add it to the freezer baggie of veggie scraps I keep to use for chicken stock.
I can't imagine being any level of handy in the kitchen, and having a difficult time operating the slicer. Just make flat ends on whatever you're cutting, center one end onto the little tube/protrusion that holds the veggie above the blade, slide the rotating handle til the little spikes make contact with the other end, and spin. Not so complicated. Even if it were complicated, the awesome results would make the effort worthwhile.
If you let it sit after you use it, it will obviously be difficult to clean once everything dries on. I rinse everything off right away, and that makes clean-up nice and easy.
PROS: Suction cups on bottom 4 corners keeps unit in place on counter while slicing, blades store inside the slicer, intuitive use, works as it is supposed to, cleans up easily.
CONS: Lever under the rotary wheel is used to push the vegetable into the blade while you are turning the wheel at the same time. This lever is made of a low quality plastic and I wonder how long it will last until it breaks, no directions provided with unit. Instead, directions are on the back of the box which you will likely throw away.
The good news in this story is that as an Amazon Prime customer, I can return it for free, and with a full refund. All it wasted was my time, which is bad enough!
It goes back to its sender, and I'll start a new search for something better.
There is another seller, whose slicer looks the same, but is sold under the name of "World Cuisine". It's a few bucks more, but maybe that's the one to pick!
I am sorry that I can't tell you how it performs, since I won't try it out, for above reasons. But I thought it is important to give everybody a heads-up for this seller's products here. Most of us don't go and check out the seller's page.
