We call this "the mangler" and it's become one of my favorite tools for salad making. Makes perfect julienne vegetables with relative ease. A traditional peeler on one side, julienne on the other, this single-use tool takes into consideration there is more than one kind of peeling needed for items like carrots where one might not want to eat the skin. Comes with an easy-to-use silicone-like cover to protect you from this tool in the drawer. Also comes with a cleaning tool. As long as you're careful, this one's a must-have!
Great customer service
May 11, 2017
Very happy with the customer service. They are responsive and i am very happy. Initially i received a defective item and they sent me a replacement immediately. very happy with the product easy to use. Once you figure out how to use the product its easy to use.
Pasta game changer and more
June 29, 2016
Almost bought a spiralizer, had it in my cart, then a quick Google search led me to julienne slicers and decided to go with this instead. Great decision! Glides across the veggies like butter. Nice long juliennes. Cleanup a snap and takes up little drawer space. I bought it for veggie pasta but I will no doubt have other plans for it too. Green mango salad, carrot juliennes, ginger perhaps. Haven't even tried the other side (normal peeler) but I plan to.
Those complaining of it getting clogged, I am at a loss. While there is certainly vegetable material in the slots while using it, I simply ignore that and keep going. Even if there are big pieces. It does not block or hinder function and clearing between swipes is a silly waste of time. You will understand what I mean when you try it.
On the topic of veggie noodles. This was the reason I bought it and this was the first time I ever made veggie noodles. I was a skeptic but bought it anyway. In my mind pasta sauce and zucchini noodles would taste like a deconstructed ratatouille. Since I love ratatouille I didn't care. But I was wrong. It tastes like pasta. Only fresher and lighter and much healthier. I can finish a big plate of 'pasta' and not feel overfilled. High fiber and water instead of heavy dough. It's a no brainer. Now if I can just figure out how to make veggie noodle ravioli
This is my favorite item in the kitchen!

We were buying similar julienne peelers in different stores including Bed Bath and Beyond (I believe we bought all together 5 different models and returned them eventually as none of them was good and twice I even cut myself by using them). Then I found this item on Amazon. What a differences! I can do my healthy salads in minutes. The device is simply brilliant. And I already bought as a gift to my family members and friends. I'm so exited that I want to share the recipe of the marinated carrot (my primary purpose of buying this slicer)
Carrots - 2-3 pounds
Garlic - 5-7 cloves
Olive Oil - 1/3 of the cup
Vinegar - 1 tea spoon
Lemon juice from 2 lemons
Coriander or curry mix - 1-2 tea spoons
Sea Salt - 1 tea spoon
Wash, peel and then slice carrots. Warm your your olive oil with vinegar until vinegar start to bubble, remove from the heat. Press garlic to the carrot, add spices and pour warm oil on top. Mix all of the ingredients. Leave for couple of hours to marinate (not necessary in the refrigerator ). Enjoy!
I've never used a peeler like this
September 10, 2014
I've never used a peeler like this. It feels really sturdy, and the blades are sharp. I like that the blade is ridged instead of a straight edge. The peels it makes are pretty thin, and it seems to get the peel off while leaving more of the vegetable intact. I recently made eggplant noodles and this gadget worked really well. As long as one keeps the julienne side clear, it'll keep making thin strips. (If it gets clogged, it won't peel anymore.) I agree with reviewers suggesting a toothbrush for cleaning this tool. I also just noticed the triangular and round nub-things on the side; they feel kinda sharp, so maybe they can be used for something too? Maybe I'll try peeling strips of peel off cucumbers before slicing them to give them a striped look on the edges.
Something that made me laugh: The product details section says that 2 AAA batteries are required (and included). I'm pretty sure this does not require batteries since I got it to work without them, but even so, I did not receive batteries with the peeler.

Seems pretty sturdy
July 27, 2017
There definitely seems to be a learning curve for learning to use it since it came with one page of instructions that was essentially "hold the vegetable and go" so we'll see how it works for making awesome vegetable pasta and stuff like that, since all I did was peel some potatoes.
April 23, 2017
I have been reluctant to buy a spiral cutting tool since I expect it will end up being a passing whim and then collect dust. This is a great substitute. I was EASY to use and made nice ribbons of zucchini. I have only used it once so far but I am happy with how easy and how well it worked. Now I have to get adventurous!
Great product and quality!
October 15, 2016
These are SHARP and make julienne cutting a breeze. I used these on cucumbers and they worked effortlessly. It conveniently comes with a little silicone sleeve to protect the blades and a little cleaning brush. I would say the downside to these is that the julienne 'slice' is rather thin. I guess I was anticipating a slightly thicker julienne. I might have to experiment more with different hand holding angles to get a different result. I have a feeling that this little tool is going to last a lifetime. It is definitely a high quality item and worth the purchase if you see yourself needing to julienne something. I guess you could technically 'noodle' yourself some veggies but I did not try this.
Make veggie noodles and super thin slices.
September 15, 2015
I like this product and use it quite a bit. I had purchased a spiralizer tool that was supposed to make these lovely long veggie ribbons, but when I got it was unable to handle even softer veggies like zucchini. This slicer can create ribbons as long as the vegetable itself, not the super long spiral ones. But this actually works, so I'm happy with it. It is sturdy, stainless, very sharp. Also, it is double sided, so you can make what looks like spaghetti noodles as well as more of a paper thin wide slice. My only issue is that it sometimes gets clogged up when I make my veggie noodles. Then I have to stop and rinse under the sink to free up the blade. Also, like when grating cheese or cabbage with a grater, this tool leaves that little bit that you cannot slice safely without risking slicing your hand up, too, so there is a small amount of food waste. This is a real kitchen tool, though not a gimmicky plastic item that doesn't work at all.
I need practice.
September 11, 2014
I got this a couple weeks ago and used it last night on sweet potatoes. I was grappling with how to hold the potato in such a way that I wouldn't rake my hand and end up in the ER and was leveraging the potato in such a way that the knuckles of the hand holding the julienne kept hitting the cutting board. Fortunately, I was improving with practice, but by the third potato I was starting to look like Uma Thurman in Kill Bill when she's punching the inside of the coffin with three inches of leeway. If I half-a$$ed it, the julienne only grabbed little bits of skin off the potato which would fill in the blades, but once I used it correctly or rinsed it in water, those would clear. I get the impression that julienning zucchini would be easier by a long shot just because the potato was pretty tough and thick. Perhaps there's something in the ebook that would help my technique. Also, all the spiral slicers I saw on Amazon that were inexpensive also had lots of stories about something getting jammed in the spiralizer and it seemed like more trouble than it was worth. Might as well go simple. Overall I like it and it seems that with practice and softer veggies I'll be better at using it.

Cleaning brush missing
March 9, 2017
Received my peeler today. The cleaning brush was missing from the package.

Difficult to use. veggie strips keep getting stuck and is difficult to clean.
The peeling blade is serrated. I did not expect ...
October 9, 2016
The peeling blade is serrated. I did not expect that. It is ok if you need to THINLY julienne something. The grooves on the potatoes that was just to be peeled was wierd and kinda un-a-peeling...
Not ideal for handheld peeling jobs
December 5, 2014
I was really eager to try this after reading all of the reviews, but I was very disappointed! I bought this primarily as a peeler not for the julienne slicing feature, so perhaps in that regard it may be more useful. It is very large and bulky and heavy, which means it is not very ergonomic for say peeling a large bag of potatoes. Also the blade head is so large you can't really see where your fingers are if you are trying to heel something while holding it. I would say it is decently sharp, however, it doesn't perform all that much better than one of my very old standard peelers! Good luck!
Peeling GREAT; Julienne not so great
June 8, 2014
I like that this peeler is obviously very well made. I have had issue finding a Y peeler, I've gone through 3 different ones in the last year and they have all broke due to being made from poor materials. This one I can tell is sturdy and I don't foresee any issues in that regard. I wasn't sure about the peeler being serrated at first but that doesn't seem to hinder performance. I was not looking for one with the julienne feature, but thought that this would be a bonus. It seems more trouble than what it is worth. The julienne side kept getting "plugged up" and I was having to stop every 2 to 4 strokes to clean it out and wasn't very efficient. I will also say that I have never owned or used a julienne peeler so some of this may be due to operator error. I probably won't use the julienne feature too much, but this isn't enough for me to want to return this item. Good peeler!

Peels Get Stuck in Razor Too Often
March 12, 2017
Peels get stuck in the razor too often every time I use it. More trouble than it's worth to keep stopping my task and clean out the stuck peels.
I like this peeler but I wouldn't recommend it if you ...
December 26, 2016
I like this peeler but I wouldn't recommend it if you are planning on using it for a large batch of slicing.. for example, it's great for a serving size portion but if you are looking for something to use to make a meal for a family, I'd go with an actual machine. The food gets caught in the teeth and it's not the easiest to take apart and clean.
I am not as satisfied as the many reviewers raved over this product
November 29, 2015
I purchased this for peeling mostly. I am not as satisfied as the many reviewers raved over this product. I think it is heavy in the hand and it puts ridges in my veggies that I don't like. It looks like a high tech gadget but there are some things that needn't be so complicated. I would return it but that I passed the deadline for return because I am in the process of moving. I do not recommend this peeler and am still looking for a simple and useful one.
Well made but very difficult to clean!
May 13, 2015
It seems to be durable and well made, but the design makes it very hard to clean, especially by hand. If you have a good dishwasher and you clean it right after every use, that might work; however, cleaning by hand is very difficult. The serrations and blades tend to trap food unlike other smooth bladed peelers. Also, the double sided peeler makes accessing the back of the peeler blades difficult.
Edited to add: It has also started to rust. I've removed one star from my rating and have started the search for a new peeler.
I found this peeler so-so
June 14, 2014
When I saw this peeler, I thought it would be so easy to use and would make some really appealing salads, however, when I received it I was disappointed. First, on the positive side, it does appear to be sturdy and made well. It came in a plain white box with no markings or other information or instruction about how to use it. Okay, it's just a peeler, so I thought it would be simple enough to use--wrong! No matter how you hold it, whether you're peeling upward or downward, it jams and does so within 10-12 strokes. Before you get through half a medium-sized carrot it jams and then you have to stop and spend way more time than necessary getting all the big pieces of whatever you are peeling out of the thin blades. I would not buy this again. Unfortunately, this item did not come with a packing slip so I don't think I can return it or I probably would.

Do not waste ur money .
May 27, 2017
Cheap cheap and won't last u long at all . Mine is already in pieces and I've only had it for few months . If I could turn back the time I would buy one with a plastic handle .
We weren't happy with this at all
February 6, 2017
We weren't happy with this at all. The quality is probably pretty good, but it wasn't at all what we expected. The "julienne" side really just peels it but with slits in between each "strip," so you're manually tearing the pieces apart if you want julienne. Unfortunately, not what we wanted.
It finally broke
November 19, 2016
As a peeler... it works. Today the guide for the julienne side broke off. It's only been about 3 months. Would not buy again.
Do not waste your money
October 18, 2016
This tool is hard to use and cramps my hand because it is so large. It is useless. I am throwing it away after I write this.
Glorified peeler, not julienne
October 11, 2016
It does not truly julienne uniform pieces, it merely peels multiple thin strands of the vegetable. Awkward and difficult to use with the blade collecting thin pieces of the vegetable constantly, then the blade can slip out and increase likelihood of cutting your hand. Overall, just doesn't work and not a well made product.
