Quickly creates continuous
spiral strands, ribbons or thin slices from vegetables.
The Spiral Slicer originally from Japan is used exclusively to make edible
decorative garnish in many oriental dishes.
This tool is great for raw foodists and vegetarians alike.. Our
favorite recipe to make with this unique kitchen tool is raw spaghetti
pasta. Just process a zucchini (fat ones work best) through the machine, and
watch long strands of zucchini pasta come out! Then blend up a simple pasta
sauce in the blender (we use, fresh tomatoes, soaked sun dried tomatoes, garlic, red
peppers) and pour it over the thin, long strands of zucchini and enjoy.
Turn almost any firm vegetable into fine spaghetti-like
strands or incredibly thin, long ribbons
Make professional-looking garnishes, onion rings, potato
nests, elegant salads, vegetable pizza toppings, and so much more.
Vegetables can also be turned into thin, uniform slices,
julienne strips or tiny cubes by adding cuts prior to slicing, as shown below

These spiral slicers are now made in China. The
"Saladacco" is no longer being commercially imported into the US from
Japan. This is the model that is commonly sold as the "Saladacco", at our
store and other outlets.
For Best Results when using the Spiral
Apply constant downward pressure to the handle, while
rotating. This will ensure the item being spiralized will come in
contact with the blade.
Produce selection is paramount for the machine to work
correctly. It is important to purchase FIRM (not soft) zucchini, and not "jumbo"
ones that tend to have alot of seeds.
If purchasing Cucumbers, Firm English Cucumbers work best.
You want to purchase produce that is shaped like a log,
straight (not curved)
