The new gadget is the Brieftons QuickSlice Spiralizer. This is a pretty nifty gadget. It comes with everything you need to start turning veggies into healthy dishes for you and your family. When you first get it, there is some assembly required, but it is easy to do and they send along very good directions for you to follow. I do want to caution you, the blades are VERY sharp! So be careful with this and who uses it.
Once you have the Spiralizer put together it is really easy and quick to start using it. The base has 4 good sized suction feet to hold it in place on your counter. I was thrilled with how well it does stay in place. It's sturdy and is made from a food-safe plastic that is easy to clean and care for. The blades are stainless steel, which means they won't rust and will hold up to a lot of use.
There are a total of 4 options for cutting food; slicing, and three sizes of 'noodle'. It's really easy to change the blade using the small knob on the side. Once changed, the blade does not move at all until you change it. Again, they include good directions for you so you can get the most out of using this Spiralizer.
The vegetables are easy to place in the Spiralizer and you can put in fairly good sized things to cut without any problem. The turn crank holds the veggies snugly making it easy to turn the crank and slide the tray along. We tried out cucumber and potato to start with it. With cucumber, the slicing spiral action does not work quite as well as the other options, but with the potato, all of the blades work great. I'm looking forward to trying out more veggies, especially onions for our salads.
I'll be honest, I'm not really sure how much we would really use this, but I do know for someone who wants to replace starchy noodles with veggie noodles, this is perfect! After using this and comparing it to one of those funnel shaped spiralizers, I would highly recommend this over the other! So much easier to use and can handle a larger variety or produce with ease. Plus you can get it at a good price.
