Hi,I try to eat healthy food: different salads, vegetable dishes, etc. I am very interested in some simple recipes and I have decided to buy a peeler.On Amazon, I found two variants:http://www.amazon.com/Deiss-Julienne-Zucchini-Stainless-Shredder/dp/B00LKRZ9Y4/http://www.amazon.com/Kuhn-Rikon-Julienne-Protector-Stainless/dp/B0000CEWJD/As for a girl, I have too big hands, lol, and I'm a little worried that peeler will slide and I can get hurt. This has happened many times with my kitchen knife. I really like this peeler because of rubberised handle:http://www.amazon.com/Deiss-Julienne-Zucchini-Stainless-Shredder/dp/B00LKRZ9Y4/The only thing that confuses me - a small number of reviews.Anybody tried to use one of them? Or please post the one you use that works great.Janet
I have one similar to the third link. It works great until you get to the bottom of the zucchini. I heard you can use a Mandoline, just be careful you don't slice up your hand. I do have a tool to hold the veggies for mine. I just haven't got it out to try.
If that doesn't work, I will save my pennies for a Spiralizer:
I bought a potato peeler and julienne peeler from Tupperware long time ago. Don't know if they still have them
Nevertheless, I decided to try peeler from Deiss. I will describe my impressions and peeler's pros and cons after Amazon deliver it. Thank you all for your advice.
I look forward to your impressions when you try it out. Had never thought about getting one before but it sounds interesting and could really use it in the next few days. Interesting on the zucchini noodles!
I used the Mandoline tonight instead of the peeler. I like it a little better. Thinking twice about getting a Spiralizer because I watched a video on it and it didn't look like it would spiral them thin enough as I like them.
I decided to buy two peelers. And after a week of use, I can share my impressions. Please, do not judge strictly, this is my first review :)I was initially interested in extraordinary round form of Joseph Joseph 3-in-1. But then it turned out that it does a great job, cleans easily and safely. It's a little easier to peel apples and other round fruits, compared to peeler with a standard handle. It also does a nice noodles. Joseph Joseph is conveniently disassembled for cleaning in the dishwasher. But still has shortcomings. This peeler is not very well suited for continuous operation. Because of its shape, insufficient size (too small and narrow) and slippery material hand begins to tire quickly enough. And then noodles turns out not so beautiful as before. As a result, we have a very interesting concept, but with some minor flaws.As for the second peeler from Deiss, I have not noticed the large differences in the quality of peeling and julienning. It is easier to clean, you just need to hold the peeler under running water. Not be amiss to keep on hand a cheap brush to occasionally clean out the remnants of vegetables stuck between teeth. Traditional peeler's handle seemed to me still more convenient than peeler of round shape. Your hand is not so much tired and peeler does not slip in it. So you can get more job done.Both peelers are great products, with own advantages and disadvantages, but in the last week, I noticed that mostly use peeler from Deiss. I really like it.
I love my veggetti for making zucchini "noodles." It only costs $14.95 and does a good job in my opinion.
