Quickly creates continuous spiral strands, ribbons or thin slices from vegetables. The Spiral Slicer orignially from Japan is used exclusively to make edible decorative garnish in many oriental dishes. It is called the Metro Garnisher which is identical to Joyce Chens product. 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. Made in Japan.
