I loved the idea of this product as soon as I set eyes on it, loved the fact it is compact in size and so will fit in my kitchen drawer. The idea of having lengths of vegetables in long shreds appeals to my nature as a Chef/ Caterer. I am always seeking new ideas.
Now that I have it here there are a few pointers, the gripper to attach your vegetables too is hopeless, it just does not hold them in place which therefore risks the ends of your fingers. Someone elses comment about using a fork is very sensible!
There is alot of wastage, I used the bits of carrot up the next night in a casserole as I hate waste! I was under the impression bfore I bought it that I would be able to put radishes through and smaller vegetables but I really don't see how this could be the case at all.
I do however love the finished product of the long strands, the courgette seemed to come out best for me and to use that in a stir fry or raw in salads still appeals so I will use it again for sure. But someone please invent a machine that does this well......please?
