Hello dear cook,
When was the last time your nine-year-old sat down to have a big salad during snacktime? If it was yesterday then stop reading and go enjoy your perfect life.
The rest of you, stick with me.
I’m always looking for more ways to get vegetables into my family so I’ve been thinking about buying a spiral slicer. Transforming a kid-maligned vegetable like zucchini into a different shape, like spaghetti strands, can make it more fun to eat. Right?
That said, I’ve been dragging my heels on buying a motorized spiral slicer for expense and space issues. I have big kitchen cabinets but a tiny house. I have to be careful about adding more stuff.
So, I was excited when Bluelife contacted me about reviewing their Spiral Vegetable Slicer. And I was surprised at how easy it is to use. In fact, I bought several zucchini because I was expecting to use the spiral slicer at least a few times before I got used to it and before I got a pile of beautiful zucchini strands.
But, I stuck a zucchini in one end and started turning. Before I knew it, I had my pile.
I really like the design of the Spiral Vegetable Slicer. The spiral slicer has two stainless steel Japanese blades: 2mm x 3mm and 3.5mm x 5mm, neither of which get near your fingers. This means, the slicer is husband-approved, at least in my household. You stick a vegetable in one end and turn, turn, turn. Your fingers never get near a blade.
Because of a bloody, bloody Sunday cooking session 9 years ago, I’m forbidden from purchasing or ever using a mandoline. I sliced a bit of my thumb off using a mandoline that day so my husband, wisely, threw it away. I’ll never forget that pain or all the blood.
This means if I want a fancy vegetable cut, I have to try to use an attachment on my food processor, which I haven’t completely figured out. Or do it myself with my mad (more like mad woman) knife skills.
So, in my opinion, a Bluelife Spiral Vegetable Slicer is a useful kitchen tool.
Do you have any vegetable spiralizers? What do you think of them? Have you tried a Bluelife Spiral Vegetable Slicer? What was your experience?
