With the Spiral Slicer you can create julienne strips of carrot, radish, cucumber and all kinds of other firm vegetables. The 2 x 3mm or 3.5 x 5mm spirals are perfect to create vegetable stir fry or pasta dishes. Also great for garnishes and plating.

The Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Vegetable Slicer Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable failed and was returned immediately. It mangled the zucchini, didn't make noodles but clunky, misshapen strings, and wobbled all over the place. The suction cup feet were a joke. The carrot I tried never did get sliced into julienne strips but stayed in thick bands. (Yes, I had the julienne blade in!) And after slicing, the teeth were bent in all directions!
I can only figure that the one a reviewer bought & raved over 3 years ago was made by a different supplier. This sort of thing happens all the time... companies change suppliers for one reason or another and the quality goes down. Possibly the "good" recent reviews are for machines which were made 3 years ago and just now found in an attic???
I also tested the Gefu Spirelli Spiral Cutter GEFU Spirelli Spiral Cutter. It was about as disapointing as the Paderno and was returned right away. Read some of the 1 or 2 star reviews to understand why it was bad. Really never worked at all! Very gimmick-y. Makes me wonder if anyone actually tests these things before manufacturing them!
A few months ago, I purchased an OXO julienne peeler OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler and enjoyed using it for about 4 meals when I noticed the blades (teeth) which score the food before being sliced were all bent at different angles! The blade didn't seem all that sharp and dragging it over a carrot or parsnip was sort of difficult. However it had the widest teeth at 3.7mm making nice fat zoodles.
Next I compared the Kuhn Rikon Kuhn Rikon Julienne Peeler with Blade Protector, Stainless Steel Handle and the MIU France MIU France Stainless Steel Swiss Peeler, Julienne Blade peelers. They both worked very well for hand-held tools. (Remember to anchor the base of the veggie, as one other reviewer noted, with a carving or large fork so you don't nick the fingers holding the veggie.)
The MIU worked great, easy to use, but a relatively short handle which I found harder to hold on to. Comes with no protective cover for the blade, but I made one out of 3" of clear plastic 1/2" diameter tubing slit all along the long side. The teeth are 3.3mm apart which makes a thin spaghetti-type noodle, but thicker than angel-hair.
The Kuhn Rikon has a nice long handle which I liked, and a cover for the VERY sharp blade. The teeth were only 2.2mm apart which makes a sort of angel-hair noodles rather than a spaghetti-type. Nice for root veggies like carrots and parsnips, and sweet potatoes; they cook quicker.
I hope this helps anyone wading through the julienne peeler swamp!
No issues with clean up.. Ran it under hot water and used my kitchen toothbrush. Ran the brush along the exposed blade, dried and now in the box on my shelf for the next round.
It is VERY easy to use. It doesn't need directions. Insert the carrot or zucchini/courgette into the spiralizer just as you would insert a pencil into a pencil sharpener. Put it straight in and not along the side with cutter. It will get to the cutter after you give it a couple of turns.
I don't find the cap very useful and don't stick your fingers inside of the unit because the blades are REALLY sharp. When it gets down to the end of the vegetable and there's not enough sticking out, I stick a fork into the end and then, grasping the fork tines close to the veggie, I continue turning and end up with just a little nub of the carrot or whatever left. I either pop this leftover into my mouth, cut it up, or set it aside for a different use... No problem.
Besides this little nub, you will also have the core. This is about the size of a pencil. Either take a knife to it lengthwise to cut it into fine strips or use it as is... There's nothing to complain about except some folks think they must...
Something like this Corn On the Cob holder/skewer would work much better than a fork 12pc Large Corn-on-the-Cob Holders Skewers and I will add this to my next Amazon order.
Another plus is that it takes up very little of our limited kitchen space.
We are very happy with our Gefu Spirelli Spiral Cutter.
==> UPDATE: The corn cob skeweres didn't work as well as expected (the 2 prongs were just not strong enough) so I'll just use a small fork in the end of the carrot when it gets down too far for my fingers. Don't use the fork handle to twist the veggie... Grasp the fork as close to the veggie as possible so not to induce "wobble" as Black Adder would say!
