View Full Version : Slice and Dice.....spiral slicing???
03-18-2007, 08:05 AM
A question on the spiral slicing type thingdos. I need to get one cause my food processor accessory thing is lost and I'm down to just a blade on the bottom (i'm dealing with it just fine, and the house has been fine combed).
I live overseas and replacement parts ain't that easy to get all the way here.
I was thinking of getting one of these slice them and dice them things from China.
What should I be looking for?
Didn't someone on her blog go take someone shopping for one in china town and say a brand was good?? Anyone know where that is?

You can get one from Alissa. I just got mine and haven't tried it yet. It is made in China, and it's the Joyce Chen brand. I has two blades, a single straight blade for big spiral slices and a series of 1.5 mm tiny blades for strings.
I ordered my off of ebay and it was reasonable.
The joyce chen one (brand is Benriner) is supposed to be very good. It got GREAT reviews. Just BE CAREFUL with your fingers. I read somewhere that it was recommended to get kevlar coated gloves and just forget the food holder. I haven't done that myself but probably will one of these days. I *touched* the blade one day and got a nice cut. They are very very sharp!

And just what I wanted to hear, well kinda lol.
I am always cutting myself on my knife, or food processor.
Anyway, it's better sharp, cause the dull ones don't cut it (pun intended).

I don't see how it would be possible to use gloves instead of the vegetable holder. It's all part of the top that turns the knob to slice or make noodles.
I love mine. I got it from alissa. It works great.

I found the perfect vegetable to spiralize: turnips. Turn one way, spin the other! I also tried an onion, but got only a dangling mess.
