Super Swizz Spiral Slicer Contents
The super Swizz Stainless Steel Spiral Slicer allows me to make impressive julienne strands of vegetables in my own kitchen.  The long and uniform garlands make attractive salads, impressive decorative beds for a main course, delicious stir fry, and when I steam the strands they are a delicious veggie 'pasta".

The slicer works on many different textures.  Here I show two opposite ends of the spectrum.  A firm potato that works great for hash browns and a fresh cucumber which would work well in a salad with some sliced tomato and a vinaigrette dressing.

You can see that both textures created neat, uniform slices.  The middle photo on the bottom is included to show that the strands will continue as long as the chef desires.  (I'm actually holding that strand up with my arm fully extended!)

The top piece is meant as a safety feature.  The spikes are to hold the veggie in place, so cut the end so it will fit flush with the holder.  This should keep fingers away from the blade.  I had a hard time keeping some of the food on it since the stainless spike is a bit on the short side.  I did forgo using it with softer and more slippery vegetables.  This is NOT recommended - so keep in mind that fingers should always be kept well away from the sharp blades on the inside.

Once you are ready to use the slicer, place the vegetable inside and simply turn as you would if you were sharpening a pencil manually.  Keep twisting until you have the desired amount of the holder becomes flush with the slicer.  The remains look like a pencil tip and can be sliced up or discarded.

Clean up is easy.  Use the brush that is provided  to clear the blades - never use your fingers to remove debris. The slicer is dishwasher safe so once the blades are unclogged just run it through a normal wash.

Pick one up and dress up your summer cuisine.
