Using the 3-Blade Vegetable Spiralizer
Easy to Use
Spiralizing is fun for both adults and supervised children! Simply mount your fruit or vegetable, then turn the handle to create ribbons, strands, and shreds.
Our chipper blade produces strands that are thicker than the shredder blade, and are great for roasting or baked curly fries. These thicker strands are perfect for pairing with a thick meaty sauce, like Bolognese.
This blade can be used to produce long ribbons, shreds, or c-cuts and half slices! Spiralize an entire head of cabbage for quick and easy coleslaw, create long ribbons for a beautiful salad, or slice into one or both sides of a vegetable to create slices.
This versatile blade produces spiral strands that closely resemble the thickness of spaghetti. Use these strands for soups, salads, wraps, stir-fry, and pasta replacement.
More Than Zoodles...
While zoodles remain a popular go-to in the spiralizing world...be sure to explore your produce department for other options! Create healthy and visually appealing meals or side dishes in minutes! The spiralizer is the perfect addition to anyone's kitchen, including those with special diets like paleo, vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic. Spiralized food items can be eaten raw or cooked.
Create Fresh, Convenient, and Fun Meals!
Add beautiful color and contrast with strands of fruit or vegetables. Whether you need to adjust your diet to alleviate some or all grains, or you just want to add some pizzazz to your dishes...the spiralizer can help!

One thing to keep in mind, THESE BLADES ARE NOT MESSING AROUND. THEY ARE SHARP. I am still not sure how (was washing it...carefully I thought), but I cut my finger very deeply on one.

I had to interrupt my cooking to write this review. Believe me, I am not easily moved to write product reviews. This would be my second here on amazon (since the writing of this review three years ago I have added many more product reviews here on amazon).
But, this little turning slicer is amazing. Simply amazing. It makes quick work of everything I throw at it and to date that would include:
onions (they work a little differently from the other vegetables)
kohlrabi (makes a fabulous, refreshing salad)
zucchini (I can never remember how many "Ns" are in that vegetable)
I may even have done a celeriac but I can't recall for sure.
This device never balks.
And it is a pleasure to clean.
I had to give up pasta a few months back and I found myself missing the act of twirling long strands of food on a fork. It was then that I searched for a spiral slicer, not sure if one existed that could meet my fork twirling needs. I bought this little gem because I figured it was inexpensive enough that if I didn't like it all that much, it wouldn't be too much of a hardship.
Honestly, for what this does I would easily pay twice or three times the price.
As I write this I am in the middle of spiralling cucumbers for the old family cucumber salad recipe. Many of the strands that come out of this thing get close to 2 feet long. Food prep doesn't get much more fun than that. The First four (large) cucumbers took all of 4 minutes to break down into perfect, long, spirally strands. I have four more to go when I finish this review.
Okay, some of the reviewers here have complained that you lose about 3/8ths from the center of anything you are spiraling, and this is indeed true. In the case of cucumbers, that means that the device is essentially getting rid of those pesky seeds for you but in the case of a carrot, you lose a bit of viable vegetable. Do I mind this? NO, who cares. Use that center 3/8ths carrot piece for something else, or snack on it while you shred the rest of your veggies. Its not as if the center 3/8ths isn't usable, it just isn't made into long spirally strands. So, it wouldn't make sense to try to shred baby carrots or asparagus because they aren't much larger than 3/8ths of an inch so there wouldn't be much to spiral.
I can't speak to the durability of this slicer because, alas, I've only owned it for two months as of this writing. So far so good however and it does seem durable. It is well designed. The extra blades snap into a holder in the middle of the slicer so you aren't likely to lose them nor are you likely to cut yourself on them inadvertantly. Though lightweight, the whole unit feels fairly sturdy and I can't imagine needing to replace it for a long long time. The whole thing suctions onto your work surface which makes it very manageable. I've started using it in preparations where hitherto I've used a mandolin slicer. This spiral slicer doesn't make it easy to cut off fingertips the way you can with a mandolin.
On a final note before I get back to the cucumber salad.... I do not like kitchen devices that make a job longer than it needs to be and that includes gadgets that take forever to clean or have sharp edges to wash and be careful of. You could hurt yourself with this thing but honestly you would have to try pretty hard to do that. it doesn't want to hurt you and the company seem to have thought of everything so that it would only really injure someone determined to draw blood. it is not a child's toy however and so it requires the same respect you would give any other item with sharp blades.
There is one minor quibble I have with the device and hope that the company reads this and deals with it in a future incarnation of the product... when the spirals come out it is a little bit difficult to manage where they will end up. It would be nice if they design a catch basin type thing for the strands as they fall from the blades. This is a minor quibble because you really can catch all the strands if you're careful but I just don't want to have to be careful all the time.
Okay, that's it, back to my cucumber salad.
EDITED July 2013 -- THOUGHTS AFTER 3 YEARS OF OWNERSHIP:
I still absolutely love this thing. It continues to work flawlessly and fairly effortlessly, breaking down all kinds of vegetables. Admittedly my favorites are cucumbers and zucchini but I have spiralized many others as noted above. In all this time it hasn't stained (as many of these gadgets do) and the blades don't seem to have lost any of their effectiveness. I admit that cleaning it, while still relatively easy, is not child's play. Still, it doesn't take long.
I used to put my zucchini noodles in a vegetable basket on the grill with some spiralized onions and coated with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic and they were a crowd pleaser every time. But it has been brutally hot and humid here so I thought I would go for something a little more refreshing. I served the noodles raw (using the smallest blade) and coated them with a homemade "guacamole" sauce. This was another crowd pleaser and rivals the cucumber salad.
3 years later and I can't sing the praises of this thing highly enough. I just really don't understand the naysayers.... particularly the folks who complain about the wasted vegetable "core" Get creative and find something to do with it. Challenge yourself!
Most of all I am impressed by how well this thing has held up.
UPDATE AUGUST 2013....
There seems to be much debate about whether this little unit suctions effectively to the work surface. For me, it does. I have a polished granite countertop. I am going to guess that this suctions much less well (if at all) to some lightly textured formicas. That may well be where the debate stems from.
A BLOG AT LAST! I am just starting to blog my recipes. The first four have been posted but am hoping to get many more up and running.....
okay. here's the blog address spelled out.... my website is s n o o t y d o g - dot - c o m. There is a link at the top of the page for my blog. Let me know if you find it useful
Of them all, this type of spiralizer is among the fastest to use (outside of using your food processor blade). I like that this spiralizer has four suction cups on the bottle of the unit so that it sticks to your counter and holds it in place while you crank the handle. It does waste the middle core part of the vegetable, but wastes less than some other tools (like the pencil sharpener style spiral tool). Given the crank and handle placement, this tool seems to be designed for right hand use, because the handle is on the wrong side when you use the crank on the left hand, but it’s not a big deal because the unit holds in place with the 4 suction cups so you can one hand crank. To remove suction, you just pull gentle on the little tabs.
I cleaning to be fairly easy. Vegetables get stuck in the blades but rinse out pretty well. I also like that there is a place to tuck your other blades in when not in use and that there is a cleaning brush. I’ve used my unit for a few months and I haven’t noticed the blade too much, but I’ve been mostly cutting softer vegetables like zucchini and cucumber. On that note, it helps a lot with wastage if you try to find straight vegetables that aren't too crooked and try to centre the vegetable as much as possible before starting to crank the handle
The down side of this unit is that it’s pretty bulky compared to other tools. As a result, I don’t use it as much as I otherwise would because it gets stored on the top shelf of my cabinets.
Comparison against other tools -
The mandoline and benriner seem to be the most dangerous to use. I’ve sliced my finger quite a few times on the benriner due to slippage. I bought metal mesh gloves to use with my benriner and I would definitely recommend doing the same with mandolines. The hand guard is a must-use if you don’t have one, or else I’d grip as high up the vegetable as you can. I like that the units fold flat and also that you can slice up more of your veggies (if you’re careful.) Also you don’t get the same shapes (obviously) with a mandoline / benriner as you do with a spiralizer.
Spiral sharpeners the easiest to use. You stick your vegetables in, twist like you’re sharpening a pencil and out comes noodles. It only has two types of slicers though so it’s not as versatile as the mandolin or this spiralizer and cleanup is a bit of a pain as the food gets caught in the middle.
Julienne peelers are the most labour intensive but handiest for irregular shapes.
Overall I think this is a great tool at a decent price. I waited to buy this on sale which it seems to go on a few times a year.
One of my current favourite zucchini noodle recipes :
3 roasted peppers
2 roasted bulbs of garlic
Salt & pepper
Goat cheese to taste
Half and half to taste
Blend that all and serve on top of your zucchini noodles.

While spiralize get it would stop working mid vegetable and I would have to again twist The cegetar like you Would with The hand held devices to get through the vegetable.
The only vegetable that this product spiralized well was the zucchini. Aside from that it was not up to par. I will be retuning it. The harder vegetables wouldn't even go through the blades without extra assistance.
In addition to the above, both carrots and beets stained the plastic orange and red. Before purchasing the product I called Paderno USA to enquire about that and the man I spoke with said it wouldn't stain with a good washing.
I'm now looking at the Inspiralised spiralizer since it is the only one on the market that clamps down to the counter the best. I have watched tons of videos to look for problems like the one I experienced and that seems to be the best.
Works quickly - can do a large zucchini in about 30 seconds if set up properly
It works with a wide size range of fruits and vegetables
The three blades allow for a wide range of cuts
The blades all fit nicely into the base - no figuring out where to store them
Assembly is extremely easy - simple, intuitive design.
Unfortunately, there are a couple of design issues that prevented me from giving it five stars:
Vegetable/fruit juice drips frequently in the area where the unused blades are stored, requiring them to be rinsed even when not used
The unit is so light it can be difficult to balance when spinning. You can balance it by pressing down with your free hand, but it takes a bit of getting used to
Sometime it can be challenging to get the blades out of the machine after use
All in all, a very good purchase and I would highly recommend it for anyone who is intending to spiralize frequently but doesn't want to break the bank.
