Top Customer Reviews
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!
There were several other similar slicer/peeler combination tools by other manufacturers I had never heard of, and all had the same obscure ratings.
All these tools shared two problems: none came with a blade guard for safe storage. And none had any good REAL ratings.
Enter the Kuhn Ricon, a German high quality company I trust. They manufacture this little gem, and I jumped on it. I already own their peeler which, after years of fairly heavy use, is still as sharp as the day I bought it. So this was a perfect complement.
And it works. Beautiful strips of dainty julienne, it makes quick work of carrots and potatoes without struggling. No clogging, super easy cleanup.
Bottom line: look at the ratings and ignore those that are not verified. Then do your homework and buy a quality tool.
Shame on all who artificially inflate junk items because they got it free or at a bargain price. It is not fair to the public to give false testimony. As a Vine Voice, I owe it to others to be honest and unbiased. It doesn't matter how I came upon an item, honesty needs to prevail.
Recently I was offered a review copy of the Pridebit julienne peeler. There are a number of peelers like the Pridebit that all look the same (just search for julienne peeler and look at all the clones). Having used them both now it seems like there is no major difference, and hence no real reason to pay more for the Kuhn Rikon peeler. The nice thing actually about the other 'generic' peelers is that the blade is mounted closer to the top, so it's easier to peel large vegetables. The Kuhn Rikon peeler blade sits inset from the top about 3mm or so. The attached photo shows the difference.
That all said, my Kuhn Rikon blade is still pretty sharp after a year of use. It's hard to say if the other peeler will hold up as well. I'll update my review on both these products if I notice a difference, but for now I don't think it's necessary to pay more for this unit.
