Mine didn’t look that pretty coming out. I still need more practice with this awesome spiral slicer. Why, yes, you’re right! I have reviewed a spiral slicer recently. I’m still looking for the perfect one for Dad. This Brieftons Spiral Slicer is pretty darn close to perfect!! I gotta say…
And there is! It comes with the slicer and this handy cleaning brush. Trust me when I say you will need and use the cleaning brush often. I did in the time it took me to slice up this radish and this cucumber.
There’s a reason they say and firm flesh fruit or vegetable. The cucumber was bit cumbersome to try to spiral slice, but I stuck with it and produce some interesting results.
This is what the cucumber looked like I was finished. It was a bit slippery and difficult to slice, but that’s not to the fault of the product. I was just determined to make this amazing daikon radish and cucumber slaw for our Asian crab cakes. I did. And it was tasty!
And this is the radish sliced up and ready to go. Looks much better doesn’t it?
There’s not so much of a learning as there is a learning curve. LOL It’s not difficult to operate, but there’s a pressure and strength element that goes into using these types of slicers.
Now, here’s what I loved:
- The color! It’s BRIGHT yellow. Just looks cool.
- The angle on the brush handle. It can easily prevent injury when cleaning out the center of the slicer.
- The instruction book!
- The fact that Brieftons has lots of recipes on their website!
- There are two sizes for your slicing needs.
What I didn’t like?
- That my arms feel like spaghetti after using this. It takes more upper body strength than I possess. Don’t judge.
- I would like a larger size slice. But that’s the complaint I have with both the Brieftons and that other slicer.
Other than that, they’re perfect for the enthusiast who doesn’t have storage space for a larger spiral slicer. It fits in a drawer and works perfectly!! If you find yourself make more and more veggie based noodles then you might want to consider a more professional one.
I’m not that person. What I DO love about spiral slicers is the simple fact that I can quickly process a zucchini or beet and then coarsely chop those “noodles” and have something larger than a shred with more texture and flavor. Like I did with some zucchini enchiladas I made recently.
Either way you slice it (pun intended) the Brieftons Spiral Slicer is perfect for me! It’s small and fits in our one butt kitchen and it’s a new gadget I don’t have to argue to get to keep! Not that I really DO have to argue, but if I bring one more appliance into the apartment, I’m sure I’d get an eye roll and a head shake for sure! Then I’d have to defend my reasoning behind purchasing it and well, it just wouldn’t be pretty.
So, do yourself and your tiny kitchen cabinets a favor and purchase this handy little spiral slicer. Cause it’s AKHA approved!
