Have you eve I am a big fan of spiralized vegetables and have been on the hunt for durable and safe slicer for a while. I've even reviewed a few on this site. Each product has it's pros and cons. Recently, I had the chance to review the Brieftons Spiral Slicer.
This is the first slicer that was not a "peeler design" that I have used. I used it for zucchini and carrots. The hands down - best thing I can say about this slicer versus others is the safety aspect. Most slicers will spiral your vegetables pretty well, but most of them are extremely dangerous. Unless you stick your hand right in this slicer, you are much less likely to get cut. That is my favorite part of this slicer. Now my kids can even help.
Like all other kitchen equipment, there are some cons. Namely, it takes a bit to figure out how to use and vegetables can and do get stuck in the device. Read the directions and then follow them exactly. Once you understand that this is just like using a pencil sharpener, it is the easiest slicer to use.
You can make two different spiral sizes, just flip the slicer over and use the other side. Veggies do get stuck, and the clean up brush that is included is essential for clean up after you've used the product. It gets in all the right places and protects your hands from being used to clean the blades.
Overall, I really like this product and would recommend it for anyone wanting to slice veggies into spirals or julienne pieces. It does a quality job and is the safest for your hands of the slicers available.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
