What's the best spiral slicer to get?

Hi Guys,

This is a great site, i am very please i stumbled upon here.

I have been looking at the Joyce Chen Spiral slicer aka Saldacco

Also the Lurch horizontal spiral slicer called the spirali and the vertical version called the spiralo

and the world cuisine horizontal spiral slicer

Which one is best to go for?

I really like the horizontal ones but i am after making potato spaghetti and super thin zucchini angle hair pasta.

Any recommendations

Many thanks in advance

Hiya ragee! Welcome! *waving*

Glad you stumbled upon our fammunity!

Personally, I wouldn't recommend the saladacco as it has a lot of mixed reviews.

You might want to check out this thread about the SPIRALO.

For some reason, I had totally missed this one. Sure looks like what I've got (and ADORE!!!): the Benriner's Cook Help.

Anyhoo, you can read more about my recommendations here.

Happy shopping and let us know your feedbacks if you do go with the Spiralo.

Hi Carmella,

Many thanks for your reply

I took a look at that most excellent thread and saw that link of the vertical slicer, I am more into the horizontal slicers, do you know anyone good ones? My budget is no more than 50 US dollars.

I really want to have the one slicer that makes angel hair and spaghetti.

I am looking to make my diet into a 70 percent veggie and 30 percent fish. I really enjoy eating sushi and i was hoping if you know, but when i go to a sushi restaurant they serve with sashimi carrot noodles that have been spiral sliced do you know the thickness of these noodles. Is this angel hair?

How many millimeters is angel hair and how many millimeters is potato spaghetti?

Sorry for all the questions but i do hope you or somebody on this forum could answer my questions

Many thanks in advance

I see this post started way back but I just got a new Spiral Vegetable Slicer and I love it....here's a link to show you what it looks like...

http://oneluckyduck.com/index.asp?Pa...ROD&ProdID=325

I used to have one of those spiralinis...something like that, you turn it at the top. It worked okay, my zuchinni seemed real wet ...

This one is awesome...the noodles look exactly like spaghetti noodles, three different blades and a cinch to use and wash.

Thanks guys...that looks really cool on one lucky duck. we are new to this raw diet..not doing it 100% yet but i have multiple food allergies and DS is 'autisticish' and on gluten/casein/egg/soy free.... and have gravitated to eating much fruit and veggies anyway. and i LOVE to cook and create and was getting bored w/ 'just' salads. i need a new kitchen tool..NOT...but it looks so fun that I will probably pick it up.

Following Carmella's advice, I just bought the Benriner's cook helper. I am particularly awkward when it comes to cutting/slicing/making fancy stuff with veggies. Well, that's the way to go. It's wonderful, very easy to use and clean. I made wonderful angel hair zucchini pasta in no time. Thanks Carmella, that was the perfect device for me. A bit pricey (I paid over 80 Canadian $), but worth every penny !

benriner cook help slicer

I just bought the Benriner Cook Help slicer. It seems to make zucchini noodles easily, though to me they seem more like linguini than spaghetti since they are flat.

I have tried using it to do angel hair carrot. It sure seems to take a lot of strength. I have to push down quite hard.

Am I doing something wrong? Are the vertical slicers easier? I'm thinking of exchanging it.

For me the spirooli is much easier to use... I like the two types for different things... but you really do have to work it hard with carrots, especially with the Joyce Chen-type machines!
