I am very pleased with the way it works, made cutting the potatos super easy.

January 10, 2017
Bought this as a Christmas gift for my mom last year. She loves it! Even a year later, the blades are still sharp and slices the vegetables as well as it did the day she pulled it out of the box. The blades are easy to change from blades that slice thicker to blades that slice thinner. It's easy to clean and doesn't take much space. You can slice almost any vegetable and it makes the job so much quicker and easier than slicing by hand with a knife. She has used it so much and it has been very well worth the money. Would definitely recommend for anyone that spends a lot of time preparing food.
Buy it...You won't be disappointed!

This slicer is great! I used it to slice potatoes for a scalloped potato dish and it worked smoothly. It has 5 interchangeable blades and everything fits nicely back in the box for easy storage. I love that it stands up on its own while you are slicing. The hand guard also works nicely with prongs to hold the item in place. I see this becoming a very handy tool for day-to-day prep in my cooking regimen. I've uploaded a copy of the instructions as some people can't seem to find them. The instructions come with the confirmation e-mail, versus printed and in the box.

This is my first mandoline so there was a slight learning curve for me to get the hang of using it successfully. I mangled my first tomato and I sliced off a tiny chip of plastic from the safety grip slicing a potato... user errors all my own fault. But by my third time using it, it was a breeze. I love this thing! The price point is great for a mandoline with this many inserts for slicing varying thicknesses.
One recommendation I'd have for newbies like me: mine came with no instructions in the box, so the only description of which insert to use for different cuts was a picture on the side of the box. You might want to cut that panel off the box and keep it before you throw the box away.

I used the slicer for the first time today. I slice sweet onions to dehydrate. My family and friends love them so I dehydrate a lot. I don't know how long the blades will stay sharp, only time will tell. So far I absolutely love it! Easy to use, easy to change blades, easy to clean. I can slice large size onions. The guard is wonderful. Can't say enough about it, I highly recommend this mandolin slicer.
Great "Vegetti" Maker.
August 29, 2017
I have not used the peeler, and may never do so. Happy with what I have already on that.
However, the spiralizer has been great. I've had "zoodles and meat sauce" twice, and the zucchini noodles created with this worked just find. It's compact, easy to use, and just works.
I have one complaint, but it's so small that, as you can see, I still gave this 5 stars. A small portion of the vegetable winds up tucked into the little "nook" at the very center of the spiralizer. That's a small bit of waste that I wish didn't happen. However, even that winds up spiral-cut, sort of like a rotini noodle. This piece doesn't quite hold the same pasta texture as the "vegetti" that comes out. But I use this piece and don't have a hard complaint on it.
Now It's FUN to eat Veggies
May 31, 2016
I bought my Spiralizer when it was on sale but only got around to using it last night! Tonight, I am using it again. I am a Weight Watcher and loved the idea of turning vegetables, which I haven't been fond of, into noodles. I not only bought the Spiralizer but also the accompanying cook book. Today, I made carrot noodles - so easy AND fun! I'm going to use them with a simple recipe of bacon, parmesan cheese, and garlic (the recipe includes various peppers but I don't like pepper - I found the recipe delicious without the pepper-)
Although I had peeled zucchini noodles last night (and didn't even taste the zucchini!), I am already wondering how my carrot noodles will taste! The bundle also comes with a cookbook one can download and print, a little brush, and a peeler. You also get to see a video on what you are doing, as well as follow up e-mails.
Love this easy to use gadget

Love this easy to use gadget! The sharp blades make spiralizing a breeze and took less time than I expected. Great price point too!
IMAGINATION is the K-e-y! Yummmm
October 22, 2014
This Premium Slicer is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I use it almost every day. There are so many veggies and fruits that work well with this slicer. Watch the video on usage, it's important. Before I watched the video I was limited to using just zucchini but now - the sky is the limit. Use "fat" carrots, I made the mistake of trying baby carrots - not good. I have not branched out to various squashes and have made an amazing soup with all the vegetables and garnished the top with pear spirals.
See 2 pictures below. I made a salad and added baked salmon, quinoa, grapes, bell peppers and more. No pictures of the soup, it was devoured before I could snap a picture :-)
I've spiraled the vegies and put them in a pickling brine and voile! Can't believe how easy and yummy and EASY the results are.
Use your imagination and go c-r-a-z-y with your creations.

I have had my eye on this for a long time. I gave it 5 stars because I couldn't give it a 10. It is made very well & it is easy to use & easy to clean.

February 22, 2016
Nice wide face area to slice on so it works really well with larger veggies. Can't do anything on it with carrots. But foe my slicing needs, this is super quick and easy. Has become a STAPLE item in my kitchen. This product is well-made. PLEASE be careful---there is a learning curve to getting the hang of this and just use caution, the blades are SHARP!!
Slices well but be careful.
February 7, 2016
I like this slicer. You just need to be careful with it. What I found is that the piece that holds your vegetable only takes the vegetable down so far. I didn't want to waste so much food so I tried to continue the slicing by holding the vegetable and I almost sliced my finger doing so. Be careful with this slicer. I recommend getting the mitt you can wear that is cut resistant.

December 4, 2015
I was very excited to get this product. I used it a little bit and it has become a dust collector in my cabinets. The main reason is because the slicing guard is really big and when you've sliced maybe 2/3 of the vegetable or fruit, the guard hits the mandolin and doesn't allow more slicing. So you have to remove the remainder of the fruit/veg etc and hand slice it with a knife anyways. (Or maybe purchase a sharps glove for protection and still use the mandolin with your glove hand- may still be dangerous?)
I actually considered giving away my mandolin. Still mostly chop chop on my cutting board with a knife and I was excited to move away from that with a faster option.
First Timer on a Mandolin Slicer
November 3, 2015
The product arrived timely, and I give only a 4 star rating due to the following details. As a first time user and never having seen this product used, I was dismayed there were no instructions at all with the product, not even on the box it came in. The box did warn me to handle with care as the blades were very sharp. I had to go to the internet and watch YouTube videos to understand how it works. I figured out on my own how to change the slicers. I am sure as I get more familiar with using it, it will become a staple in my kitchen. I do wish I had a slicer where I could adjust the slice thickness, but the 3 different slicers will do for now.
Check your parts
August 11, 2015
It's plastic but better than the one I previously bought at the supermarket. However, it didn't come with instructions and instead of having a 3.5mm blade guide it had two 2.5mm guides. I'm waiting to hear from Amazon to see if they can get the missing piece for me. The safety guide is much better than the one I had and the adjustable prongs grab the food solidly.
Update: Amazon shipped me a new one and this had all of the correct pieces. Good to know that they worked so quickly to make it right. Thanks Amazon!
SOOO Many Zoodles...so little effort.
August 7, 2017
I like it! Made some linguini sized Zucchini Noodles and the little gizmo couldn't be easier to use. The Spiked cap helped keep fingers clear, and the metal side bars helped keep a firm grip. The Blades are super sharp and could be a night mare to clean without giving up a pint or two of blood. Luckily the included cleaning brush made quick work of the Zuch-debris. Great inexpensive way to get into making veggie spirals!
Pleased with product.
August 13, 2016
I don't think the thing that's supposed to hold the food works all that well as it kept slipping out of the food. Other than that, I think it's a good product for the money. I've made zucchini 'spaghetti' a few times with it and am very happy with the final product. This does the job and doesn't take up room on the counter like the big spiralizers. I'd buy it again or give it for a gift.
This Thing Really Works!
January 9, 2016
Took me a while but I finally joined the spiralizing bandwagon. I'm not disappointed and it's a fresh way to add variety to healthy eating. It does exactly what it says it does and zucchini pasta is surprisingly satisfying.
One of the downsides to these types of tools, including this one, is that it leaves a chunk of the veggie behind. I just cut it up and add it to whatever I'm eating. This one comes with a circular veggie "holder" with little plastic spikes but so far I've found that part of it to be useless, it doesn't grab a soft veggie very well and isn't made to grab a hard veggie like a carrot. I use my hands to hold the veggie and that works fine...just be careful when you get lower into the device as the blades are sharp. It also seems a little over-packaged, the storage bag that comes with it looks nice but I for one don't store my kitchen utensils in separate bags, it's not convenient when you're reaching for a tool. The bag is cute and I'll use if for something else.
All considered, a worthwhile purchase!
A good product for the price, but maybe a better design somewhere else?
June 22, 2015
I basically only use this to Mexican any pasta. While it does do the job and cuts it into pasta like slices nicely. It does waste the core pretty badly and is somewhat difficult to clean. It left me wondering if there was a better model that I could get the whole zucchini twirled without wasting so much of the core. I would buy it again because the price is right and it does work. I just wonder if I should've spent more and maybe have one that was better designed
July 19, 2014
I used it the day I received it. Works well once you "get the knack" which did't take long. I was under the impression a book and CD came with it for ideas. I contacted the customer service and discovered it is an e-book and video. They supplied me with the access links so I can't wait to do more with it. I made zucchini noodles and they cooked up just like spaghetti--I had long strands that held up well to cooking and stirring. Now that I have all the parts I think this is a great addition to the kitchen for healthy eating. After I have time to read the recipe book I may come back and rate it a 5 star/

I couldn't get the 'holder' to hold onto the carrot. So I thought I could do it by hand. Be careful - the blades are very sharp. I sliced my finger. Now, I am wary to use it.
April 30, 2016
It's not sharp enough
I love that everything comes out the same size
April 25, 2016
A little hard to work with at first but I got the hang of it. I love that everything comes out the same size. However the round thing to hold the food for safety purposes is somewhat useless, it does not hold anything too skinny, too thick, or too hard like sweet potato. That was a little disappointing so I ended up buying the NoCry Cut resistant gloves then I just hold the food in my hands and go up and down until almost the end works like a charm!
Love my new slicer
January 12, 2016
Love my new slicer....just have to be careful, that blade is really sharp. I cut my finger taking it out of the box because I wasn't paying attention. After inspection, blade had several nicks in one side. Contacted GalleyFresh several times, They said they would send a replacement several times. Now been several months and nothing!!
October 15, 2015
the best I can say for this is it does an ok job.
September 1, 2017
My son encouraged me to buy this spiralizer. The first time I used it I spiralized zucchini and yellow squash. Sometimes the veggies would be long like spaghetti and sometimes they would be very short pieces like hashbrown size. I think you have to develop a technique of some sort so that most of the veggies are spaghetti length. The same goes for using the cap to aid with the spiralizing. Maybe the more I use it the better I'll get. It's not a bad invention overall. I look forward to spiralizing other foods.

June 18, 2017
The only thing I don't like about this is that you have to have very specifically shaped Vegetables to fit in it.
September 30, 2016
I had high hopes for this spiralizer, however you have to be very careful not to shred your fingers when you get closer to the end of the vegetable. There is no real way to utilize the vegetable in its entirety, and your left with a sizable chunk left over.
The peeler that comes with it works ok, and I like that they added a brush for clean up. Cleaning is simple, just rinse immediately after use and all the bits rinse away easily. I will use this, and to be fair it does make nice "noodles". I'll be looking around for something that is a bit more user friendly.

March 24, 2016
I had a lot of fun with this my first time using it (yellow squash) but I wish the innards of the veggies didn't get so bunched up at the bottom of the cone- and since there's no hole to poke it through, you have to use your fingers to get the core unstuck, which is a bit nerve racking to be fiddling with something so slippery near those blades. Also, the big wasted core is kind of a bummer, too, so just chop it up and add it to your dish. It doesn't seem sharp enough to do much more than the outer peel and just under it, even on firm squash, which makes me nervous to try something harder like a carrot. I do have fun with this tool though, even if it is a pain to clean!
Vegatable Spiralizer Review
September 2, 2015
This spiralizer is ok. I had a Cooking Light recipe for "zoodles" so I figured I'd try out this product. There are two main reasons I'm only giving it 3 stars: first, my recipe called for 4 medium zucchini. My arm was so tired after sprializing 4 and it took a while because I had to keep stopping to re-position the zucchini so it fit in properly. Second, you cannot spiralize the entire vegetable because of the inherent design of the spiralizer. Therefore, there is quite a large "butt" left. I ended up quartering the "butts" because I don't like to waste food, however, because I was sauteeing the "zoodles" the different shapes cooked at different times which made the "zoodles" too tender (almost mushy). Now that I've used it once, I know what to expect and would do things differently next time I use it. The price is great, so I would recommend trying it. I think it would be great for garnishes and salad toppers. Just note that to spiralize a lot of vegetables will take time and effort.

It works. The storage is a bit slippery for the blades as it is positioned horizontally for storage. The device to hold product for use is limited in size and you will have to use a knife to accommodate that. It is sharp and care has to be taken.
Expected good results - disappointed
September 2, 2015
I received my mandoline and I was excited.. To say the least, it was short lived. I put it together so that I could use it that night.. My family and I live on primarily a plant based diet, and do juicing, so having a mandoline I thought would've made thins a breeze and cut back on time spent slicing, etc. The blade isn't that sharp at all, it was a struggle to slice a sweet potato... And while slicing a pear, it was still a little challenging.
The plastic handle/tool broke, were it slides on to assist and make it so that you don't cut your hand/fingers.
This was my first mandoline and it made it a little difficult to want to buy another.
... this - I am not sure what others are like but it's difficult to get it flowing for me
April 17, 2017
Very hard to turn the veggies in this - I am not sure what others are like but it's difficult to get it flowing for me. Only used it a couple times either it was me not getting the knack of it or it's the tool.
I knew this wouldn't be amazing at the price point
November 4, 2016
I knew this wouldn't be amazing at the price point, and I got it because I was curious about spiralized veggies. I planned from the get go to upgrade if I really liked veggie noodles. My biggest complaint is that the grip end offers no stability, and just shreds the produce end. So I would just use my hand as much as I could and that resulted in more waste. Also, takes only smaller size produce. Did make good size noodles though.
Wish I wouldn't have
May 8, 2016
It cuts cucumbers well, but anything harder in texture is more difficult than I would have thought after reading the rave reviews. The cookbook is 2 1/2" by 5", and is only about 20 pages. The recipes call for quite a few ingredients most people won't have in their kitchen. I haven't eaten a date in decades, but most recipes call a date. How many of you have nutritional yeast, Himalayan pink sea salt and hemp seeds, tamari, walnut oil, puffed quanta or cashew creme in their kitchen? If you do, then this is the recipe book for you.
I won't use this nearly as often as I first thought. I fell for the latest fad, and am not proud of that fact
Save your money on all of these. Once you get it short enough it goes inside and then you have nothing to cut or hold to turn it
March 9, 2016
Little disappointed in it, once you get the cucumber or zucchini inside the unit, then can do anything with it. I even put on the lid and twisted it and all it did was tear up the end of the zucchini, so the inside is still big. Not sure if its worth it. I tried a peeler with the julienne blade and it worked better. Just my opinion. I would not buy this again. Cheaply made as well. Also the units that you turn works better as well, this just has nothing to push the zucchini or cucumber into the blade once it gets that size.
March 2, 2016
It's actually not too bad for vegetables that are the right size for the cone--zucchini, cucumbers, large carrots, but this device isn't nearly as versatile as some of other spiralizers out there. It's worth paying ten bucks more and getting a more versatile and easier to use device that can handle many different veggies and sizes. I also nicked my fingers getting a bit aggressive trying to get the very last spiral out of some cucumbers--kind of feel like some safety guides would be nice.

January 18, 2016
This is the only review I've done in the 8+ years I've been an Amazon customer. The box was beat to hell when I got it and the plastic sleeves to cover a "new product" were ripped and shredded I think this has been sent back a few times. I used it for 15 minutes and threw it back in the box. Was slicing onions no big deal it should handle it right? Haha when it got to the center of the onion it just stuck halfway into a blade had to dig it out with my hand in fear of losing a hand or finger. The rest of the 5 minutes felt like a struggle to slice it would not move quickly through as it should. I don't know why this has 5 star reviews I guess people are just too used to cheap crap. I'd give it a -2 stars if I could.
Don't buy if you value your fingers.
September 9, 2017
This product is extremely difficult to use. The handle has basically no grip capacity - I was never able to successfully "spiral" veggies using the handle. I was able to do it by hand - but this results in either half of your veggie going to waste, or several tiny cuts on your fingers as you attempt to spiral the last bits of veg. Maybe someone with tiny fingers or who is more dexterous might have more success than I did, but overall my recommendation is to pay a few extra dollars to get a nicer quality one with a turn-crank handle.
Delivered today, used today, returned today.
August 28, 2017
Delivered today, used today, returned today. Promptly broke after 10 minutes of use, did not properly spiral zucchini, and wasted quite a bit of the vegetable in the process. Don't waste your money on this cheap, easily defective product.
Waste of money
May 25, 2016
I have had this for a few months before opening and using. I have done that today and the peeler was broken, made of thin plastic. Then I had to yank the brush that had been crammed into the spiralizer. Then I tried to spiralize. The thing is so small I don't know if a carrot would fit. I was trying to cook sweet potatoes. The thing wouldn't spiralize, it just jammed. Too much work. I am throwing it out and getting a better one.

November 16, 2015
This product is terrible! It is impossible to make spirals with any vegetable at all. You can not feed the whole vegetable into the spiralizer only about half of it. The cap that is supposed to be used to push the food through is a joke. I ended up cutting my finger trying to get a carrot out. Do not buy this product.
Words can't express how much I hate this product.
March 12, 2015
Are you kidding me? Come on. This is the biggest piece of junk I have seen in a while. I don't believe any of the positive reviews I've read here. Wasted half of each zucchini. Couldn't slice a carrot. Could only slice my finger. Makes my arm hurt trying to turn the veggie. Terrible product. I feel like asking for them to pay ME to have gone through the trouble of even trying this. What a joke. No thank you. Glad I'm a Prime member and could return it without paying for shipping. Words can't express how much I hate this product. Spend the extra $14 and buy a real Spiralizer.
