The Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Spiral Vegetable Slicer

Jan, the Gadget Queen, strikes again!  This time it’s a Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Spiral Vegetable Slicer.  Several months ago, when I discovered Zoodles (thin shreds of summer squash or zucchini) I blogged about my newest gadget, an Oxo veggie shredder.  Here’s the post.


It worked really well, I was making great faux pasta with it several times a week, then I took it to John and Deanna’s and forgot it, and decided to replace it with a  Spirelli Spiral Slicer.


It “seemed” to be really popular on the low carb forums, but hubby was the only one who could use it because I didn’t have the strength to turn the veggies thru it and he hated it.  It was difficult to turn, the zucchini caught in the blades, oh let’s face it, it was a disaster.  But I paid $29 for the darn thing so we were making the best of it.


Then I started reading more and quickly found out the the one people really like is the Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade slicer.  I had a little windfall in the form of a Blogger check, so I just bit the bullet, ignored the fact that I had already bought two other slicers and bought it.

Well, let me tell you, it’s worth every penny of the $35.98 Amazon Prime we paid for it (mine was on sale, it’s slightly higher now.)  It works flawlessly, easy to use, easy to clean.  It’s large, so you do have to store it, but it’s a winner.  Even LC said he would buy it again, it’s that good!

We made Zoodles tonight, here is the Palerno in action.   And just in case you aren’t familiar with Zoodles, it’s faux pasta made from summer squash or zucchini.  If you put sauce on it, or butter and garlic, it’s a great substitute.  I actually prefer summer squash, it has s smoother taste, but zucchini is good, too.

Here’s what they look like when they come out of the machine.  They are one continuous spiral, I cut them into a manageable size.

And here’s dinner after I sautéed them for about five minutes in butter with garlic and thyme. You want them slightly el dente, not limp, and you can almost fool yourself into thinking you’re eating pasta..  But then we are seriously pasta deprived.

Another good thing.  Seriously *grin*
