Well I guess I better get my mama this InstantVeg Spiralizer for Christmas if I want her to keep making me curly shoestring french fries and zucchini spaghetti on my low-carb days (i.e., every 17th Sunday). See I got her this spiral vegetable slicer last Christmas, but lately every time she uses it I hear an inordinate amount of profanity and grumblings about arthritis coming from the kitchen. I'm pretty sure she's spiralized part of her finger once or twice too.
Though larger and more complex than a handheld slicer, the InstantVeg Spiralizer razes its fruits and vegetables much faster, and with far less difficulty and blood loss. In addition to thin strands of carrots and yams for alternative pasta dishes, the InstantVeg's 4 blade modes can produce thicker curlicues for quick conversion to treats such as apple chips and onion rings. The enclosed slicing tray and crank handle turn and slic ingredients smoothly, keeping fingers well away from the danger zone even once a spinning item reduces to a thin disc. The thin disc thing also ensures minimal waste.
InstantVeg Spiralizers include a non-slip base attachment use in catching outpouring ribbons, though the device can also be held over skillets and pots of boiling water for direct transfer. The range of potential spiralization victims is vast. Some examples include apples, onions, carrots, zucchinis, cucumbers, cabbages, beetroots, turnips, rutabagas, cucumbers, large radishes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and squashes. In addition to carb substitutes and crispy fried tastiness, the InstantVeg can help turn out potato nests, salad and pizza toppings, and byooteeful garnishes.
