I bought this item because I wanted to incorporate more fresh vegetables in to my diet in a more unconventional way. My first dish was a butternut squash "pasta". It was so simple to use and there wasn't much waste. The leftover discs I just chopped up and added to the dish. It doesn't take a lot of elbow grease to slice. I just wouldn't use the finest blade for any softer veggies like zucchini because they turn to mush. Overall I think I'll be getting lots of use out of my Benriner. I would have given it 5 stars if it were made of metal instead of plastic but it does seem quite durable. Can't wait to experiment more!

What a great tool! It does not work for many veggies - only for the sturdy and fresh ones, but the result is stunning. Beats and carrots look gourgeous as spagetti, and zuchinnis have a surprise effect as ribbons. And somehow they taste better too, since the salad dressing permeats more surface. Everyone comments on my veggies now. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

I really like this gadget! Carrot salads and zucchini could never be as delightful with just a mandolin. However, I am giving it just 4 stars because it has three distinct drawbacks:
We find that the length of the vegetable sections which fit in between the blade and spiral grip must be rather short; no more than 3 inches. Which is frustrating since if the vegetable you wish to spiralize is not wide enough you will not be able to use this machine. Which leads to the next problem. We have not had much success with vegetables that are too small, such as radishes. And only large carrots can be spiralized with this device; therefore, forget about most organic carrots, which tend to be long and slender. We think you will find that it is rather hit or miss whether or not this machine will be able to spiralize the veggie you have chosen.

Otherwise, it does not take up too much space and when it does work, it does a marvelous job.

We love it! It's easier to use than the spirooli because of the downward motion. It's true you have to use smaller chunks but it feels like there's less waste.

I like the sharp blades and it's safe to use.
Does beautiful spaghetti shapes or slices from beets, carrots, and zucchini.
I keep it on my counter top because I use it frequently and I like the looks.

I like it very much and use it regularly.

First, it's important to select properly the blade according to each type of vegetable: The more there is water in the vegetable the bigger the blade you have to use. For example, carrots (you need larger diameter ones) are great with smallest blade (vermicelli), but for a daikon, I find the medium blade is preferable to avoid the vegetable to release water)

Positive:
- It makes long thin noodles, which I find perfect for Thai sauté (sizes are: 1mm, 2.5mm and 4mm)
- Good quality nylon plastic, made in Japan. - I was hesitant due to reviews saying it's sturdy, but on contrary I find this plastic to be stronger thant other type of spiralizer I've seen (especially the pins that hold the vegetable in place). Also, no smelly cheap plastic parts which is a must for me.
- The handle is part metal (not colored plastic)
- Very rapid to wash. (I use a toothbrush for the blades).

Negative:
- Just wish they would update the design of the base for more stability and handling. (I have fibromyalgia, so this might not be an issue for most people)

Great for most things, as long as they're cut into size and shape. Doesn't feel overly sturdy though, sometimes feels like it going to break when doing certain veggies, like yams, although it hasn't actually broken at all yet. Great fun though, and really does change the way you approach a lot a dishes. Just a bit pricey.
