I'm trying really hard to eat healthier. One way that is healthy and also a fun way is the hand held spiral slicer. I don't want to sink all of my money into a table top spiral slicer until I know this health kick is going to stick. It's very costly just to eat healthy let alone put a lot of money down on something that I may or may not use. The hand held spiral slicer is a great tool for the beginner. I liked that I could slice a zucchini into noodles and sort of make a healthy spaghetti.
It is very simple to use the slicer and even the beginner will have no problems doing so. You simply put the vegetable in the top and twist like you are using a pencil sharpener. One thing I didn't like about the slicer is that the slicer left about two inches of the cucumber I was trying to slice in the slicer and no matter what, I couldn't slice it.
That was ok though, because I was using it as a garnish and could simply cut it and add it as more of a garnish. I'm sure that those who are trying to use the slicer as a replacement for spaghetti noodles or as a pasta substitute might not like that.
All in all, I think this is a good product to have in the kitchen when you have children. You can use your creativity to eat in a healthier way. I do want to caution being careful letting children use this product. As always, watch your children closely because this is a slicer, it does have a sharp blade.
I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
