Pros & Cons
The GEFU Spirelli Spiral Cutter is a combination of high-quality plastic and special, sturdy Japanese blades made of stainless steel. The slicer helps in conjuring endless julienne strips of carrot, radish, cucumber and all other kinds of firm/hard vegetables, for healthy pasta or stir-fry meals. It also helps to decorate or garnish while plating and serving dishes. The spiral requires no assembly and is ready to use at a moment's notice. Handy and compact, it includes a turning cap with prongs to hold, that helps in turning the veggies through the spiral slicer. It comes with 2 blades: Medium - cuts 2mm x 3mm thick julienne shreds and Large - cuts 3.5mm x 5mm thick julienne shreds. This cutter is easy to clean by simply rinsing with warm water and mild detergent and is also dishwasher safe.
However, this tool is limited for longer shaped vegetables. It does not turn the entire veggie into noodles or strips, around 2 inches of veggie is wasted as it cannot be rotated anymore. Also, it does not work on soft or squishy centered veggies.
Overall, the GEFU Spirelli Spiral Cutter is a fun gadget for making raw vegetable noodles/pasta to maintain a healthier diet. It is recommended for its nice sharp edges, affordable price and smooth functioning quality features.
