Here’s What People Said On Amazon about the Spirelli Spiral Cutter
I do not understand these people that say this tool does not work or that it does not come with instructions. There really is no learning curve with this Gefu Spiral Cutter. It has 2 openings, you place the vegetable you want to spiral cut in one of the ends and rotate it. How hard is that? I tried it out on carrots and zucchini. Worked like a charm. I really had no fear of cutting my fingers at all, not an issue. I did have to “lose” about the last inch of the carrot because trying to twist the carrot while it is inside the tube is kind of hard. I don’t consider that a big concern at all though. It easily spiral cut the zucchini. It didn’t feel like the cutter was cheaply made. I didn’t have a hard time cleaning it, had to poke a toothpick in the groove to get out some of the stuck pieces, but cleanup was a minute of my time.
I had considered the Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable, as it has good reviews, and probably would do just as good a job, but I didn’t want the storage problem. The Gefu fits nicely in my cooking utensil drawer and that means it will be more likely to be used. So really, if you have a modicum of intelligence and have handled any type of tool effectively, you can handle this item. I just don’t see how it gets any easier than this.
My husband found this on Amazon and ordered it for me. I have to say I was skeptical at first. I had wanted a spiral vegetable cutter for some time but all the models I had seen were huge counter top contraptions that I had no interest in, nor did I want another thing cluttering my already full cupboards. When it came I gave it a try that night and IT ROCKS. I made delicious squash and zucchini “pasta” with butter, Parmesan, and garlic. Two nights later I made it again with homemade pesto. Again later that same week with fresh red meat sauce. We don’t eat pasta so this has given us a multitude of alternatives! My husband absolutely loves the long strands it creates…. He twirls the veggies “pasta” around his fork just like you would real pasta. It’s quick and easy to make gorgeous veggie pasta and this small device fits neatly in my utensil drawer.
Three tips:1) To clean it well use a toothbrush or a small bottle brush. That will help brush all of the bits out of the blades. 2) Use smaller veggies to get best results. They will have less seeds, yield less waste and give better results. 3) Be cautious when you get to the end of the veggie you are cutting. Those blades are sharp! Other than that this is a great little device. Well worth the price! I’ve used mine at least 10 times in the short time I’ve had it. Enjoy!
