Under normal circumstances I wouldn't eat a zucchini under any circumstances. But a zucchini that's been shaved? Hmmm, I don't know. See, when it comes to girls I...well, anyway, I guess it's safe to say that if an ugly, stumpy zucchini pays a visit to the vegetable slicer and walks away looking like a beautiful pile of perfectly spiraled ribbons, there is an OK chance I will dump some bolognese sauce on it and dig in.
In addition to upcycling vegetables into a low-carb pasta alternative, this spiral slicer can also add some nice presentation effects to veggies used as salads and garnishes during your next dinner party or kegger. Imagine 3 dozen Jell-O shots sitting atop an accentuating bed of radish curls. Now that's classy.
The spiral slicer works best with firm vegetables, such as zucchini, carrots, tubers, and gelatin's new favorite wingman. It juliennes its targets in 2 sizes: a 2 x 3 mm medium cut or a 3-1/2 x 5 mm large cut. A built-in finger guard protects digits from becoming one with their carrot curls.
