As a gag, my mom bought me "The Rotato Automatic Peeler", which spins vegetables around and peels them with a little sharp loop of metal. I'd buy another in a heartbeat because I hate peeling potatoes and, despite getting the peels all over (I lay down paper towels before use), it's extremely convenient.

u/GrumpaDirt · 172 pointsr/videos

There ya go, and its even 1.10 cheaper than hes selling them for. Probabl even cheaper if you buy several and get cheaper shipping. Buy a bunch and sell them the same way he is.

u/uranus86 · 163 pointsr/videos

Victorynox didn't have it but i managed to find it on Amazon, this looks to be the exact one he was selling. Reviews basically confirm it.

u/Borrre · 161 pointsr/videos

cheaper version with better ratings

People really seem to love it

u/enduser1980 · 82 pointsr/Guildwars2

I thought it was going to be this:

u/Ax3boy · 55 pointsr/videos

Here's what he was selling, but you won't get as good as a deal, though.

u/Zombies_Are_Dead · 40 pointsr/Cooking

I love the Vidalia Chop Wizard. My mom gave it to me and it's extremely convenient for when I need a lot of uniformly chopped vegetables. It makes for fast prep and easy cleanup. I also love my Titan Peeler that I bought on a drunken whim. It makes peeling vegetables extremely fast compared to the standard peelers I've owned in the past.

u/albino-rhino · 29 pointsr/AskCulinary

Get a sharp Y peeler. These are great.

And other than that it's just fast hands. I usually grab half of the spud, and peel the other half of the spud, rotating as I go. If we assume a spud has poles at the long end, I'll rotate around the n/s axis and peel from the equator to the pole, then flip and repeat for the other half. If you're peeling a ton of spuds, hold them in cold water until use. If you're using them immediately, use immediately.

Source: I don't even wanna think how many potatoes I've peeled.

Edit: changed the link to the ones I use + clarity.

Or just get a julienne peeler

u/PastyPilgrim · 17 pointsr/videos

You can get them from Amazon too.

u/PM_ME_YOUR__MIRROR · 14 pointsr/Eyebleach

Yes they absolutely do. They don't peel hard skins but any softer skin like apples, pears, potatoes, etc.(?) will do.

It appears to be a [Rotato peeler.] ( from a quick Google search.

Apple Peeler / Slicer

One of the most amazing mechanical inventions I have ever seen. Fuck cars, it's all about apples. I have a friend who has one and I have been wanting to steal theirs.

u/Photronics · 12 pointsr/MachinePorn

This thing is huge for what it does..

u/fauxnetikz · 9 pointsr/food

Have to core, peel, and slice apples? Look no further. One of the coolest damn inventions I've ever seen.

u/RobotPigOverlord · 9 pointsr/keto

Seriously, zucchini noodles are the best pasta substitute. I have this one, 8.99$, works great

Zyliss Julienne Peeler

u/zapatodefuego · 9 pointsr/chefknives

The Kuhn Rikon is by far the best peeler I've ever used. It has carbon steel blades which stay sharp for a long time (but need to be dried after use) and the profile/shape, which is what really makes a peeler good, is just right so that shavings never get stuck. Also they are dirt cheap in the three pack.

u/I_eat_satans_ass · 9 pointsr/diabetes

Zuchinni noodles. buy this. use it on zuchinni, saute them, add pesto. Its delicious, and for the once in a while I crave pasta it gets the job done without dealing with the carbs of pasta. Not the same, but good enough for me.

u/Sweet-Lime · 8 pointsr/vegetarian

I use my dehydrator often for fruit leathers, dried pineapple, zucchini chips, kale chips, banana chips, etc. The only downside to dehydrating is the amount of time it takes. I have a Nesco that I'm happy with and I think they are pretty reputable (and 1/4 the cost of an excalibur!).
Another kitchen gadget I use is my Spirelli Spiral Slicer if you're looking for something a little less expensive. It's fun for salads and making veggie "noodles".
If she enjoys sprouts (on salads or sandwiches) you could get her a sprouter.
If she enjoys smoothies, you could get her a smoothie blender.

I do like your original idea of a dehydrator, I just figured I'd throw in some other ideas in case that falls through or you need to budget differently! Good luck! And remember - She will love anything you get her.

u/Edmund_Heckler · 7 pointsr/guns
u/crepeshamer · 7 pointsr/facepalm

Get your mom an electric peeler! Like this one.

I have severe systemic juvenile arthritis, and my hands are crippled with deformity and joint or tendon damage. I know how much it sucks to rely on other people. Technology is pretty great these days, though.

u/janeaddamsknew · 7 pointsr/Paleo

I tried them for the first time yesterday too! I just got [this] ( and I highly recommend it! I made Pad Thai. Delicious!

u/grafvonorlok · 7 pointsr/guns

I know! I built one over the summer starting from an 80%. All I needed was a good jig and a peeling tool.

I bought this peeling tool. Buy once, cry once!

u/inverse_tiresias · 6 pointsr/bingingwithbabish

That looks like a swivel peeler with the material surrounding the blade being steel or silver colored, a black handle, and a dimple in the tip to scoop out spots and eyes.

After some Googling my spouse and I have narrowed it down to two candidates. Personally I think the first is closer to the one in the video (but they think the handle is too thick) while the second is a little too curved.

u/AchillesFoundation · 6 pointsr/FoodPorn

Absolutely! I just made one for the house the other day with Gala apples, and you're now making me want another one. Nice lattice work!

BTW, if you don't all ready have one, an apple lathe like this one is really helpful. Go from ingredients to oven in 15 minutes or less.

u/Lostinservice · 6 pointsr/Entrepreneur
u/xracquellyy · 6 pointsr/gifs

It is the same concept as a Rotato. I have one of these things and I swear by it. It has saved my wrists (I fractured both twice and broke my left one once) because they hurt so bad at times.

u/fireman2004 · 6 pointsr/TheBrewery

Buy this :


Buy a few cases of lemons, and never look back. For how cheap this thing is, buy a few extra as a backup.


Edit: Also figure out what to do with all the rindless lemons you now have. Lemonade? Shandy? You'll figure it out.

u/AlphaEnder · 6 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

My grandma's got a manual peeler that does this with apples. Peels, cores, slices. I lost my mind when I saw it, and my parents got me one for Christmas. Surprisingly, I've used it much more than I thought I would. Cut up an apple (usually don't peel), get some peanut butter on a plate and nice simple snack.

Looks about the same as mine, probably is.

u/kaidomac · 6 pointsr/RawVegan

First, if you want to be healthy, then you need to feed your body properly. Learn about macros here:


    Second, what's your daily eating scheduling like? Ex. just breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or with mid-morning & mid-afternoon snacks, or with dessert, and so on? I'd recommend picking one category & then working on building up a week's worth of recipes for that meal or snack eating period, so that you can add some rotation & variety into your diet. Then move on to the next category, do the same thing, and repeat until finished. That gives you a really solid foundation of recipes with a variety of flavors to choose from on a week to week basis. You can build up to more than just a week's worth of recipes as you find new recipes that you want to keep in your collection!

    Slowly adopting a dietary change like this also allows your gut bacteria to catch up at a normal pace; a lot of people just dive right into it & have a rough first few weeks because their GI tract isn't used to all of the fiber & other stuff flowing into it. It's like when you eat bean chili after not eating it for a long can cause havoc on your system, not because it's bad for you, but simply because you don't have the right gut flora built up so that the good bacteria in your system can properly manage your new standard diet.

    Third, I would recommend investing in some high-quality tools. Note that you don't have to buy any of these, and if you do want them, you don't have to buy them all at once - totally okay to piecemeal it & save up for them! Here are what I'd consider the "essentials":

  • A high-quality blender, such as a Vitamix or Blendtec, that will last you a really long time & actually puree ingredients, not just blend them into smaller chunks like cheaper blenders do. This is an essential tool for smoothies & soups.
  • A food processor. A decent one runs about $40 on Amazon.
  • A really, really good knife. If I only had to choose a single knife for my kitchen, it would be my 9.5" Dalstrong Chef's knife. This is a $130 knife that performs at a $500 level. Really expensive for just a single knife, but also really good. If you're going to do raw vegan, having an amazing, incredible knife makes kitchen work fun vs. a being a chore.
  • Carbon-steel Y-peelers. These don't last forever, but they're cheap (3-pack for $10) & do an AMAZING job of peeling everything from fruit butternut squash.
  • A vacuum-sealer setup. Decent vac-sealers go for about $50 on Amazon. You can buy pre-cut bags or rolls that you can to size (use titanium scissors to cut the plastic bags).

    If you have the budget available or are willing to save up, here are a few extra tools that are really good:

  • A juicer. There are two good options: masticating & slow auger. Good ones are not cheap, but will last a long time & give you the most juice possible. Champion makes really amazing masticating juicers, and their new model has an auger for greens as well. I have an older unit & really like it for both juicing & for making banana ice cream (throw some nuts & hemp seeds on top & it makes for a great breakfast!). As far as the other design goes, the Tribest slow juicer is one of the best-rated cold-press juicers out there.
  • Citrus juicer. This is basically a manual reamer mounted to a motor. You simply cut your citrus fruit in half, then press down, which activates the motor. If you do a lot of oranges, lemons, grapefruits, etc., this is worth having.
  • Salad Shooter Pro. This is kind of like a portable food processor, although it's way more convenient for shredding things. The fine-shred cone is sold separately & is the one that I use all the time.
  • If you have a large budget available, residential freezer-dryers are available for a few thousand dollars. They can be a bit finicky to operate (a lot of people spring for an oil-free pump), but if you plan on doing this long-term, you may want to start a savings program that runs for a few years to save up for one, as it has multiple benefits: it can store food for really long periods of time, and it helps reduce waste because you can freezer-dry anything that is about to go bad, instead of throwing it away or composting it.

u/Hopguy · 6 pointsr/gifs

Mine has a blade that cuts the apple in a spiral. Making pie, you just cut the apple in quarters and the pieces are just the right size. I recently did 6.5lbs of apples for apple butter in about 10 minutes. You can have the same one here for about $20.

u/alexkitsune · 6 pointsr/1200isplenty

This one. Super user friendly, multiple splicing options for thicker or thinner noodles. Suction cups for the counter if you want to use them. Quality blades.

Cons: Find somewhere good to store it, tis a bit of a pain.

u/doombubble · 5 pointsr/fitmeals

My guess is that a standard veggie peeler would easily do the trick.

u/Apocalypse-Cow · 5 pointsr/AskCulinary

I use the OXO Good Grips swivel peeler. It works great for a house hold duty peeler. I usually don't peel new potatoes and I can't remember when the last time I actually had fingerlings in my kitchen. lol

u/whiFi · 5 pointsr/keto

for anyone looking for a cheaper/more space-saving alternative, I highly recommend this little guy. $10 and turns a zucchini into a pile of nice thin noodles in mere seconds, I use mine practically every day.

u/orthag · 5 pointsr/gifs

You'll love this then!

u/lil_Katie · 5 pointsr/Robbaz

This is the peeler. I have one, it's awesome. The pampered chef one is really nice, fyi for anyone who wants to get one.

u/wkomorow · 5 pointsr/gardening

What a great picture. If you have never used one, I have one of these: There are similar models. They take a bit of getting used to but work great. I can do just over 120 apples an hour. Though your way is a great social experience.

u/Gajatu · 5 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

This thing will revolutionize potato peeling. source, have and older model one, used it for potatoes, will never not make real mashed potatoes ever again. Also, i make an inordinate amount of apple pie in the fall, so it works equally well for its intended purpose.


p.s. you can move the corer part out of the way on mine and just peel. this one appears to be movable as well. best money i ever invested in a kitchen gadget.

u/bonkus · 5 pointsr/funny

I found mine at the local hardware store, which has a great kitchen section, but if none of the businesses in your area carry them you can always order one from Amazon. I like the one with the suction cup base, because it's super versatile, but I know my older relatives swear by the one that clamps right onto the counter or tabletop.

u/Franny___Glass · 5 pointsr/proED

Omit the tilapia, put the parmesan on the zucchini spaghetti. Now it's only 147 calories.

You can also use a spiralizer (if you have one) to turn the zucchini into "zoodles." I use mine a lot.

u/Gazzwhitt · 4 pointsr/AskCulinary
Best peeler I've ever had.

u/getMeSomeDunkin · 4 pointsr/gifs

As long as you have two un-broke wrists, this one works better. It'll peel, slice, and core an apple all in one go.

u/GoonCommaThe · 4 pointsr/interestingasfuck

You peel them when you make apple sauce, apple pie, apple juice, or apple cider. You can get a handcranked version of this machine for use at home. Works on potatoes too, you just flip the corer down. We have one that we mostly use for making apple pies (though we flip the slicer down and dice the apples with a knife).

u/Ashyr · 4 pointsr/Cooking

We sprinkle a little sugar and cinnamon on the apples after we've placed them on the dehydrator trays. The smell is incredible.

If you don't have an apple peeler, but are thinking about getting one, I recommend

It costs the same as you would pay at target or bed bath and beyond, but is cast iron instead of aluminum, so it's way sturdier and the suction cup really works. You won't regret it.

u/wyldeyez · 4 pointsr/PCOS

I relied on/r/keto (the reason I started was finding this), /r/xxketo, /r/ketorecipes for support and recipes.

My husband is about as stubborn as they come (I can't say much though, I am the same way). He was sold after watching 'Hungry for Change' on Netflix and The Diet doctors Food Evolution. They are kind of propaganda-ish, but kind of make you think twice about what they call food anymore.

I used myfitnesspal to track my foods and just ate whatever I wanted while trying really hard to stay as close to 20 carbs/day as possible. Lunches were mostly meat/cheese/nuts/packable veggies. Our meals were at least half veggies. I let myself have an occasional roll or something if we were out at a restaurant, but kept my higher-carb times in moderation and still pretty low.

Some of my favorite things (there's meat in most, but maybe can be adapted or at least the veggie side is good):

This thing is beyond awesome:

Cauliflower mashed potatoes

Chicken in cream sauce (omit the flour)

Hibachi Chicken and Cauliflower rice

These are great with some strawberries on top: low carb cheesecake cupcakes

I like this w/o the crust. Have done in lemon too. Kids even really like this one.: Lime Fluff

We make pizzas with low carb tortillas a lot too because they are easy.

I hope that helps...I know that was a ton. Message me if you want to know anything else :)

u/ReplyYouDidntExpect · 4 pointsr/videos

u/InvisibleBiker · 4 pointsr/videos

Here's an amazon link for that product for $2 (+$2 shipping).

Looks like your links got the reddit hug of death.

u/AndroidAnthem · 4 pointsr/ketorecipes

I bought a julienne peeler based on the reviews in this old keto post. I've made fabulous zoodles with it! By using a hand-held one, you wouldn't have to worry about the larger zucchinis fitting in it.

u/Britany274 · 4 pointsr/1200isplenty
u/ligyn · 3 pointsr/Cooking

I've peeled them with just a typical OXO swivel peeler (, although it's so much easier to cook and then either scoop out the flesh or cut off the skin if the recipe will allow for it.

My complaint isn't even the hard rind - handling the raw squash to peel it dries out my hands horribly, but it gets too slippery with gloves.

u/_spiraling · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

So I don't know what kind of peeler you're currently using, but I MUCH MUCH prefer ones that are this shape rather than the ones that are straight.

u/motodoto · 3 pointsr/cocktails

The one on is great.

I use the OXO peeler and the cocktail kingdom channel knife. The OXO peeler is comfy in the hand and the cocktail kingdom channel knife cuts nice and deep easily.

Roasted Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

See the full recipe (with additional notes) at my blog here----

  • 8-ounces pasta noodles of choice, gluten free if desired
  • 2-pound butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, (or 2–3 tablespoons vegetable broth)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup unsalted unsalted vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2–3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Spanish Paprika or regular paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried ground sage (or 1 tablespoon fresh chopped sage)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional but recommended


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. If making this sauce for pasta, prepare the pasta noodles as directed on the package, to al dente (using salted water). Drain. Set the pot to the side (you’ll be using it again later). 
  2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise, and scoop out seeds. Peel with a vegetable peeler, making sure you go over it a couple times with the peeler so no white is showing (it should be orange on the surface). Cut off the stem on both sides, and cut into 1 to 2 inch evenly cut pieces.
  3. In a medium bowl, add diced butternut squash and 1 tablespoon olive oil (or unsalted vegetable broth). Stir to coat and then transfer chopped squash to a baking sheet covered in parchment paper in an even layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until squash is tender.
  4. To a high powered blender (or food processor), add the cooked butternut squash, 3/4 cup vegetable broth, almond milk, garlic, paprika, sage and cayenne pepper. Puree the mixture until smooth, starting on low speed and increasing as you go. Transfer the sauce back to the pot and heat over medium-low heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring often, until warm.
  5. Serve this sauce mixed in with your favorite pasta or gnocchi and top with fresh sage and pumpkin seeds, if desired.
  6. *This is best served immediately, but if making ahead of time, I highly recommend to store the sauce separately (in an airtight container in the fridge) until serving. Otherwise, the sauce may be absorbed into the pasta and will not be as flavorful. This recipe makes a total of 2 cups sauce. Serving size about 1/2 cup.
u/bl1y · 3 pointsr/fatlogic

And don't forget that fruits and veggies contain this little thing called nutrients. An apple and a banana both have about 3g of dietary fiber. A 200 calorie single serving of Barilla angel hair only has 2g.

By the way, if you really like pasta, I found a nice substitute is to get a julienne peeler and make long strips of squash or zucchini, and then steam them until they're the desired consistency. Can always just sub half the pasta with that.

u/EmpathyJelly · 3 pointsr/Paleo

I sorta did it by the seat of my pants but if I recall it went something like this:

  • brown 1lb ground bison

  • brown 1/2 onion and several cloves garlic in the same pan

  • add 2 chopped bell peppers, 2 chopped eggplants, 2 c. sliced mushrooms and 2 large cans diced organic tomatoes.

  • Add many spices - salt, pepper, chili flakes, thyme, marjoram, oregano, basil. Add a splash of vinegar and a pinch of stevia.

    Cover and simmer until the veggies are cooked to your liking. Stir it every so often. Serve over your favorite spaghetti alternative such as zucchini, spaghetti squash, or shirataki noodles
u/twothirdsshark · 3 pointsr/Paleo

I got a Julienne peeler (like this: to get nice thin spaghetti-like strands. You can also use a mandolin slicer if you prefer ribbons.

I'd imagine you could do it with a knife, but they wouldn't be as easy to slice/wouldn't come out evenly, and would take quite a while.

u/DerBeanerschnitzel · 3 pointsr/oddlysatisfying


Edit: Actually there's thing my parents had like 20 years ago called the Rotato. Same kind of thing in the except it stands vertically and doesn't core the potato.

We bought one of these off amazon for zesting fresh citrus (usually added in whirlpool in muslin bags):

It works well, is fast, and leaves all pith behind.

u/Bart_Dart · 3 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

I bought one of these for apples, best decision I've made in a long time.

u/Im_just_saying · 3 pointsr/gifs
u/rock-paper-scissors · 3 pointsr/Canning

Try finding the "Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving" at your local library. You will find tried and true information for canning safety and of course, recipes too.

Apple sauce and apple butter are good recipes to start with, you don't have to worry about adding pectin and they're pretty difficult to mess up.

It's good to have an apple corer/slicer/peeler when working with a lot of apples. It cuts down on your work time considerably. A food mill is nice to have too.

Also, look into your local 4-H. They are a great resource!

Canning is a very rewarding hobby. Good luck!

u/ObnoxiousSubtlety · 3 pointsr/Cooking

These are a lot cheaper and saved me a lot of heartache than the crappy peelers I was using.

[Kuhn Rikon 3-Set Original Swiss Peeler] (

u/TheMoneyOfArt · 3 pointsr/cocktails

The 3 piece shaker is more work to clean and has a smaller capacity than a 2 piece shaker. That hawthorne strainer looks useless. the spring on it is not nearly taught enough to filter out small pieces of ice or pulp. I don't use speed pourers at home and don't know why someone would want to.

Cocktail kingdom carries top of the line stuff. To start I'd get a 2 piece shaker from them, their hawthorne strainer, and then any julep and tea strainer will do. The oxo jigger is very nice for home users. I've also heard good things about "top shelf bar supply", and I believe their stuff is more affordable.

cocktail kingdom sells the best muddler, but you don't need that at the beginning.

You'll want a hand-held citrus juicer eventually. Something like this is the way to go, with as much metal as possible.

for garnishes you'll want a y-peeler, and for a y-peeler you want kuhn-rikon. 3 of those are still like 1/3 cheaper than brands that work way worse.

barspoons are nice but you can get by with a chopstick or just a regular old spoon.

u/whatdiegoate · 3 pointsr/chefknives

Agree. The 8” will be good when you break down heavy vegetables like squash/pumpkin. You’ll also need a good peeler, I recommend this. Hope this helps!

u/Kahluabomb · 3 pointsr/cocktails

I'd avoid adding the flesh of the citrus fruits entirely, and only use the zests. If you've got a microplane, zest away.

Otherwise, i'd recommend you buy a Kuhn Rikon Vegetable Peeler and use that to peel your fruit. They are carbon steel blades that are set pretty close together so they take a nice, thin, peel. They also need to be hand washed and dried to prevent rust on the blades.

But they're the best peelers ever. You'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

u/MinimumROM · 3 pointsr/GifRecipes

Not with one of these.

u/frenchpressgirl · 3 pointsr/blogsnark

Pie thoughts incoming... this got long!

Basic Apple Pie -- prep is so much easier with one of these thingies, which my Midwesterner husband laughs at and calls a "Yankee apple contraption"

2 pie crusts (I use Smitten Kitchen's all butter really flaky recipe)

6 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

a bit of nutmeg and clove to taste

pinch of salt

2 Tbsp thickener (cornstarch or flour)

2 Tbsp butter

optional: 2 Tbsp golden rum or applejack

1 egg yolk + 1 Tbsp water for egg wash

Preheat oven to 400.

Mix filling ingredients and place in bottom crust. Take butter and squish into small pieces, and dot among filling before putting on top crust. Weave lattice for top crust if desired. Brush with egg wash.

Put pie in oven, and immediately reduce temperature to 350. Bake 45-60 minutes, until crust is golden and filling is bubbling. Tent crust with foil if it starts to brown.

I've also had good luck with this Moosewood Scandinavian Berry Pie, which you might like for the tartness and blueberry-cherry combo. The crust puffs up very attractively in the oven.

Scandinavian Berry Pie


12 oz fresh or frozen cranberries

4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (about 1 1/2 pounds)

1 tablespoon freshly grated orange peel

1/4 cup orange juice

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/3 cup cornstarch

Sour Cream Crust

2 1/2 cups unbleached white flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter

1 cup sour cream

1/4 cup flour for dusting the dough


1 tablespoon heavy cream or milk

1 tablespoon sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine all the filling ingredients in a large pot and continuously stir until the cranberries start to pop. Once the cranberries start to pop, watch it closely and continue to stir until it reaches your desired thickness. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Cut the butter into the flour and then stir in the sour cream until a ball forms. Use 2/3 of the dough to make the pie crust. The remaining 1/3 of dough will be used for the lattice topping.

Pour the filling into the pie crust and roll out and cut the remaining dough into 6 large strips. Carefully lattice the strips on top of the pie folding the excess under the crust. Brush the lattice with the milk and sprinkle with the sugar.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until crust is golden and filling is bubbling.

Lastly, you might like this Bon Appetit cranberry-lime pie, which is sort of a Key lime pie but with cranberry as the primary color and flavor. It's a bit more work than a standard pie but SO gorgeous.

edit: forgot a couple tiny things!

u/christoffelees · 3 pointsr/ketorage

I own a spiralizer of the same design than this in the 30 dollar price range, the Gefu Sprializer, here's my thoughts on it:

I absolutely love mine! It makes zucchini pasta perfectly - the two ends make different sized noodles (one more spaghetti-like, and the other closer to a fettuccine). I also use it to shave things like carrots for toppings on salads.

I'm pretty prone to kitchen injuries, and I haven't managed to spiralize a finger yet! I find it really easy to clean - I just rinse out any large pieces of vegetable caught between the blades and throw it in the dishwasher, but I've cleaned it by hand too. They really don't get too dirty as none of the vegetables I use with them are particularly sticky.

I chose this model over the bulkier multi-blade spiralizers most people seem to have just because space is at a premium in my kitchen, and that I'd be likely to lose one the extra parts/blades of those other spiralizers.

I also have a julienne peeler, but you can only get strands as long as the length of vegetable you're peeling with that. A spiralizer allows you to get much longer strands, where it cuts in a spiral instead of straight down the vegetable. Another point, the blades in my julienne peeler only make pretty thin strands which I find break down when I cook them, but it's still great for salads or raw foods. The plus side of a julienne peeler is that you can use it on vegetables too broad to fit into the spiralizer (beets, for example). Unfortunately I've peeled my hands a few times too many with the julienne peeler, so I've stopped using it.

Zucchini pasta has become my staple pasta-replacement, sometimes I throw in a bit of carrot into the mix for crunch. I just quickly fry them in a teaspoon of oil. You can totally cook them down, but i mostly just heat them through so they're still fairly al dente. Serve with alfredo sauce, carbonara style, or even with chicken thighs and a low-carb marinara sauce.

TL;DR: Get one.

I have this Paderno one at love it. To be fair, though, I only paid $10 for it at a yard sale.

Really, any of these "countertop" ones are good. I started off with a handheld spiralizer like this one and it really wasn't as good. I was limited to vegetables that could fit into it and it didn't handle hard vegetables very well. Pretty well, it was only good for zucchini and cucumber.

u/Blimey85 · 3 pointsr/Cooking

Paderno is an excellent brand and claims they were the first. I have their relatively new 4 blade model and for the money I've found nothing better. I believe I paid $40 for it on Amazon. It's fully self-contained, takes up little space, is well constructed so even though it's made of plastic I have no worries about it breaking. It's also very quick and easy to use.

u/Cheeze_wiz · 3 pointsr/Cooking

It might be different than what I do, as I use a jullienner, but I just toss them in some oil (I use canola) and throw them over low heat until they are warmed and have the texture I want. Spiral slicers include more of the middle of the zucchini, which I don't use because it falls apart on me (makes a great snack while I'm cooking)

u/llada · 3 pointsr/parrots

For question number two, shape and size were really important when I was trying to get my GCC to try new things too. He'll eat just about anything now, but when I was having trouble with him and his veggies, it really helped when I julienned them. Amazon has a cheap julienne peeler here if you don't have something like that already. I made him a slaw of jicama, apple, and red bell pepper, and that was the first step on his veggie journey.

u/Mister_Kurtz · 2 pointsr/Cooking

Getting a y shaped peeler can really be useful for a lefty. Some of my guys at work who were lefties kept nicking themselves with the normal peeler so I bought them one like this worked like a charm!

u/margypan · 2 pointsr/nutrition

I missed spaghetti until I found a recipe on that linda's low carb site. You get a few zucchini and a julienne peeler. Take the peels from the zucchini and sautee them with a touch of butter and whatever seasoning you want. It goes really well with spaghetti sauce. We make our own spaghetti sauce, so we can limit the tomatoes. I tried the faux rice in a tuna casserole I make, and it was terrible. :(

u/FUS_ROALD_DAHL · 2 pointsr/Paleo

This is what I use. Works well.

u/tzdk · 2 pointsr/52weeksofcooking

I used this, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it. I'm sure it'll get easier to use once I'm used to it, but it's still kind of difficult to julienne the whole vegetable with it. If you look up spiralizers you can check the reviews for different types. This is the one I see recommended most often, but it's also one of the more expensive brands.

u/Diablo-D3 · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

u/c4ptainmorgan · 2 pointsr/pics here, buy one and make a bunch of apple pies and apple butter. Then dress up like a granny from the 1940s and give your neighbors homemade apple pie and apple butter. Guarantee they will remember you and call the cops if anyone is robbing your house. Also the peeler is useful for making mashed potatoes, you can slide the corer out of the way and just get peeled potatoes. Not sure why you would want to do this though, the peel is the best part.

u/SomeWeirdDude · 2 pointsr/funny

Link to the product. I have one of these and if you need to peel apples often I highly recommend it. I use this to peel apples, then just one cut through and I have perfect apple rings which I then dehydrate.

u/septicidal · 2 pointsr/boston

As far as varieties for baking: I strongly prefer to use Macintosh or Braeburn for baking. They take to spices well, and bake beautifully. (For what it's worth, I've been baking apple pies for almost 20 years of my life, and am well-known amongst my friends/family/random ladies through my parents' church for making amazing pies). If you're going to bake a lot of pies or other baked goods that require thinly slicing lots of apples, get one of these. Sometimes softer apples don't work so well with the corer/peeler contraptions, but they will save you a LOT of time/effort when it comes to baking with apples. You'll also wind up with uniformly sliced apples, which means they will bake more evenly. Additional pie-baking tip: mix up the filling ingredients the night before you plan to bake the actual pie, and let the filling sit in the fridge overnight (in a separate bowl, do NOT put an unbaked pie in the fridge; it will turn the bottom crust to unappetizing sludge if you do so). This will give you a thicker syrup in the pie, and let the flavors mingle. Use freshly-grated nutmeg if you can.

u/mrbigbusiness · 2 pointsr/gadgets

Peels, slices and cores apples. We use ours to peel bushels of apples in the fall after we hit up the local orchards. Works like a champ!

u/tipsana · 2 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

With all due respect, I've abandoned that thing for this thing. I bought it to more quickly process apples (we have some prolific apple trees) and it is a DREAM with potatoes.

This year I lost my way for a few hours and forgot (!!) to get the 10 lbs. of potatoes peeled and ready to be boiled up once the turkey was out of the oven. I remembered in time, however, and was able to peel all 10 lbs. in less than 5 min. I seriously cannot recommend this device more highly.

u/sputnikorbust · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes

I make zoodles a lot and use this $9 julienne peeler. Thought I'd pass along for you frugal folks looking to get into the zoodle scene.

u/Ksevio · 2 pointsr/boston

Well you need about 10-14 for a solid apple pie - you want a mixture of apple types for that - get one of these apple slicer corers - they're really helpful.

Then you need half a dozen or so to boil down for apple sauce and apple butter (be sure to pick up some cider!).

And of course you need a few good ones for eating (Macoun apples are great eating variety).

But yeah wash/scrub them off because pesticides will make your apple sauce taste funny.

2-3 half pecks should be enough.

> Stainless Spatula (slotted or unslotted)

I like a slotted metal-core silicone spatula for frying in my non-stick pans, and a very thin solid metal spatula for scraping my cast-iron (something like this).

> Silicone spatula

Yes, preferably a regular size one and mini one for getting into narrow jars.

> Silicone spoonula

Yes, see above.

> Stainless spoon 5. Slotted stainless spoon

I prefer plastic and wood, since they're non-stick safe, unless they're polished ones to use for serving.

> Ladle

Yes, preferably plastic

> Wisk

Yes, both a high-density balloon whisk and a silicone-coated one for nonstick pans.

> Tongs (should they be silicone or stainless? do you use these in your nonstick pans?)

Both. Stainless are easier to use, but I always keep a silicone one around for my non-stick pans.

> Peeler/juliene peeler

I'd say no on a peeler. I've found the best approach is to buy cheap ones and toss them when they get dull. Nothing is more dangerous that a dull peeler that you don't want to part with because it matches a set. I personally use the Kuhn Rikon ones that are 3/$10.

I have a julienne peeler, but it's more trouble than it's worth, and I wouldn't recommend it. If you're doing small quantities it's almost as fast to use a knife, and if you're doing large quantities just get a spiralizer.

> Draining spoon (for pasta)

Yes for slotted spoon, but no need for the "pasta spoons" with the tines for grabbing spaghetti. You're much better off just draining your pasta in a colander.

> Potato masher

I've never used mine. I use my RSVP Potato Ricer instead.

> Measuring cups

Yes, preferably metal dry measuring cups and a Pyrex wet measuring cup. For dry measuring, I like the stainless ones with short sturdy handles (such as the KitchenMade ones). Even though the handles are a bit short, they're incredibly sturdy and won't bend or break, and the handles are short enough that they won't cause the cup to tip. For wet measuring, go with the original-style glass ones, and skip the ones with the inaccurate angled measuring surface.

> Measuring spoons

Yes, again preferably stainless and with the little hooks on the end of the handle so you can lay them down flat on a counter (like the Cuisipro ones have).

u/elukea · 2 pointsr/PipeTobacco

Oh yeah! My other hobby and career actually is booze based. I wrote a bit about the rusty nail a while back when I was working on a small cocktail book.

All in all I find that lesser quality blended Scotch works best in a rusty. You are adding the (naturally) flavored Drambuie to it and I find that you lose some of the nuance of a Single Malt. The blends just taste like Scotch and that is what you want as your base. I usually stick to Dewars, Grouse, JW Black, White Horse, etc. You can make them half and half or another ratio like 3-1, 4-1 etc. It's a sliding scale on your mood and preference like a Manhattan or a Martini. If I am being fancy I will take a barspoon of a really peaty single malt and put it right on top of the drink. Adds a nice top note of smoke.

In terms of the twist it does add a great aroma. In all honesty the spiral twist has kind of gone out of fashion and most places use a Y Peeler for a wide swath of peel. More oil that way. We like these cheapo ones. When they dull you can just get a new one but they are razors out of the package.

I love a rusty nail. It is a slightly sweet drink but it can really hit the spot. Complex, tasty, boozy.

u/KatelynnPwnz · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/CowardiceNSandwiches · 2 pointsr/Cooking

I have cast-iron pans because few things beat a steak seared on cast iron, and the thermal mass of my enameled cast-iron Dutch oven makes it great for long simmering.

A fileting or boning knife makes it much easier to...filet things, like fish. If I tried to clean a crappie with a chef's knife, it'd probably end up looking like I used a dull shovel.

I also actually own two apple peeler/corers (ones like this), because we pick lots of apples every year for pies and applesauce and apple butter, and hand-peeling so many would be a nightmare

I just threw all his particulars into a spreadsheet - I think his income is about $125,000/yr...NET!!!

He probably sales about 360 peelers/day, while working maybe 6 hours and taking a full month vacation every year.

My estimates:

-217% markups on the peelers (same peeler for 1.99 on amazon, assumes he has a deal for a bulk rate so shipping is close to negligible, called it $3/80 peelers)

-$100/day on veggies

-4wks off/year

-6hours worked/day

-he does that - what you see in the video - 4 times/hr while working

-That video is typical: assume he does that schpeel (4mins) with that sales volume (15 peelers) with adjusted average price of $4.33/peeler (taking into account he has a scaling price, $20/5)

-Yes I scraped 28% out for taxes

I've been doing a lot of economic modelling at work lately and I'm always interested in how other jobs work as far as a payout. Anyone weird like me and wants a look at the spreadsheet pm me.

Just get a knife sharpener. The 5-10 dollar ones from Amazon. Don't bother with a honing rod - just use the sharpener once every week or so. It will not work with serrated knives though.

Get a proper peeler like this one. Or this one

Sharpen your peeling knife on the sharpener and you should be fine. Use it to hand cut small things or for delicate work like peeling shallots. But do not use it as a vegetable peeler.

I did a protein shake with milk, because it tasted better. The milk itself has more than enough carbs to get you going. Some people do a small Gatorade. (By small i mean TINY like 12 ounces). But, you really need to limit it to workouts. Since I did the protein modified fast while weightlifting, I was not allowed to do cardio. Cardio works against muscle building.

I had no problems staying in keto while weightlifting. But, people have different body types, and results will always vary. I was weightlifting and dieting to lose the 30 pounds I gained in college eating nothing but fast food. I should also mention,. since my bf kept me company, he helped keep me motivated.

This is my favorite tool for making zucchini noodles, or anything that needs the shredded look. Otherwise it takes way too long to cut the zucchini into noodle like pieces.

Someone else around here mentioned this Julienne peeler the other day and it is now on my wishlist, as it looks awesome!

I've also made a zucchini & eggplant lasagna a few times which is amazing! I just use the slicer on our box cheese grater to make long thin "noodles" and then bake them for about 15 minutes in the oven to get all of the moisture out and then make layers of tomato sauce, spinach, mozzarella, and ricotta and then bake in the oven. Baking off the moisture makes a huge difference in how they turn out.

I also made a pumpkin cheesecake with nut crust for Thanksgiving and it was awesome! I used /u/ibreatheimhungry's for the filling and then mixed ground almonds & pecans with butter and a smidge of splenda and salt for the crust. It came out great.

/u/CatOfGrey is right, it's puree. You don't need to add anything for apple leather, but you can add berries to get different flavors.

I make fruit leather in the fall, when you can get bushels of "seconds", which are apples that aren't perfect looking, from orchards for around $10. I use a peeler/corer/slicer to make quick work of the apples.

You just run the apple slices through a blender, along with berries if you want, and boil the mash till it's a thick, even consistency. Then you put it on parchment paper in a dehydrator until it's fruit leather!

We cut it into strips and vacuum seal 'em and it lasts for a long time.

Peelers are generally overlooked. Get good ones.

Anything teflon or non-stick... return. Don't ask for. Get them cheap as you can and plan on tossing them out every year and replacing.

A good timer and meat thermometer also.

A good oven thermometer is cheap and get it yourself. You can usually find a good one online.

Lastly- depending on where you live, a year subscription to a Chef Warehouse or Restaurant Depot can save you a lot, you can pick up gear cheap, and maybe meet and talk with a few chefs. That'll be worth the price!

i need want a 3-4" paring actually in carbon steel, just cant decide on a brand and metal. with my limited experience i found white steel being quite chippy and think maybe AS wouldnt be as much. for general peeling tasks i just use a $3 peeler like those.

I've never used one of those peeling knives, I would recommend this, and maybe keep trying to use the knife you have until you're good at it.

I used 1/2 large zucchini and 2 thin carrots with 1/2 medium avocado. There is a ridiculous amount of sauce, but I'm fine with that. Next time I'll cut it down to about 1/4 avocado. It's just so tasty! This is definitely my new preferred method for shredding as well as I can just peel, julienne-peel, and a few chops to perfection. Grating always gets so messy, so this will be way easier. Yay!!

Titan veggie peeler - I am as wary as the next Redditor about "as seen on tv" shit, but this bad-ass mofo is everything it purports to be and more. It's the closest thing to peeling with a light saber that I ever hope to get. Fucking thing even makes peeling a raw butternut squash quick and easy. My only caveat is that you really have to be aware of where your follow-through stroke is going to go, because it will filet the fuck out of your fingers as fast as it will anything else.

thanks! Yes, i'm doing about 65/25/10, though i try to get my fat ratio higher if i can. My IF is generally 16/8, I break fast for lunch at 1PM and make sure dinner is over by 8 PM. (as a side note, i have found that cutting out snacking reduces my overall cravings--for me, eating something/anything triggers wanting to continue eating.) Usually its just lunch, dinner, and evening treat. Lunch is typically a salad (topped with, say, gorgonzola/walnuts/balsamic vin, or cheddar/chicken thigh/ranch), or deli turkey with avacado-mayo wrapped in butter lettuce leaves. Dinner is meat + veggies. This veggie spiraler is my new favorite toy for making faux-pasta meals. Hope this helps!

How about something to cut vegetables with? It'd promote healthy eating! :)

Or something to re-inflate those exercise balls and mats they already have?

Or maybe a workout book?

Hopefully one of those would work!

EDIT: Flipped the .com links for .ca ones!

Depending on the level of pickiness, you could make a large pasta casserole, batch of potatoes, or rice pilaf and your spouse could have some with each meal. Of course, then it's there to tempt you when you're trying to avoid it. Maybe you could convince your spouse to look at vegetable recipes and collect some that are acceptable to him/her. It's so hard to cook for people with different requirements, isn't it?

Lately I've been hearing gook things about this:

You can use it to make "noodles" out of things like zucchini and carrots. With a good sauce you might be able to convince your partner to try some.

I don't own a spiralizer yet but I considered the same one shown in the post. Then I happened upon the handheld one : )

u/witeowl · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

I got this one when it was on sale for $16 and am pretty happy. Don't know if it's worth its current price of $30, though.

u/SyrioForel · 1 pointr/videos

Seriously? You do realize he didn't MAKE them, right? He bought them wholesale. He's a salesman. You can buy these same exact peelers from Amazon:

$1.99 for that

You can also pick up the "upgraded" version labeled "STAR", which is the identical model shown in the video, for around $7. The only difference between the STAR peeler and the REX peeler for $1.99 is the material that the handle (not the blade) is made out of. ZENA, the manufacturer of this product, actually sells a variety of different peelers based on this original model, and they're quite famous around the world. This isn't exactly an exotic or unique item.

And here's one from Amazon UK for us Europeans!

This one's under $4 (shipping included)

u/gordo1223 · 1 pointr/seriouseats

Are you a SE writer? If so, which? Favorite brand of Y-peeler? I bought a bunch of different ones a while ago and use, gift, and recommend these all the time. Only downside (if you could call it that) is that it is a carbon steel blade.

u/Awordofinterest · 1 pointr/videos
u/sloof70 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

You can buy this Swiss peeler online for cheap. It is sharp, durable, simple, and probably the closest to BIFL you can find.

u/weseeu · 1 pointr/videos

Here it is on amazon for $2 +$2 shipping.

u/fordus · 1 pointr/keto

I have been using this julienne peeler for my zoodles. I have limited kitchen space, so a larger 'spiralizer' would take up too much room. I really like it, and highly recommend it!

u/orejo · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Well hello there internet friend! I am feeling lazy today as well. I did read the other day about an amazing julienne peeler that I added to my wishlist. It would be a perfect prize for this occasion!

Damn you're fortissimo!

u/meowsatyourdoor · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This julienne cutter! It would make just about everything I do in the kitchen THAT much easier lol; thanks for the contest! C:

u/Schonke · 1 pointr/pics

Get something like these. They won't peel the orange for you, but they'll help you slice the peel open and save you from getting it stuck under your nails.

Sorry about that! I meant to come back and post it but my memory is terrible

Amazing progress!

Baby bok choy are my new favorite veggie. They are very low carb! I sauté them up with ginger, garlic and a little soy sauce. Basically this recipe but without the red pepper flakes.

I also frequently sauté spinach with garlic butter. It's amazing how much it shrinks down.

Broccoli slaw is easy to add to meals too, great for stir frys and I sometimes use it as a noodle substitute. To make a sort of cole slaw out of it I take a bag (~3 cups) and add about 1 1/4 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp veg oil, salt and pepper to taste (and sometimes a couple drops of liquid stevia). I just made kalua pulled pork and mixed some of the broccoli slaw in and it's amazing.

Zoodles - zucchini noodles. I actually haven't made these yet but they are supposed to be a good pasta substitute. I just bought a julienne peeler to make them with.

They aren't green but riced cauliflower is also great to use in stir frys. This is my favorite recipe with it so far - Shrimp Chorizo with Dirty "Rice"

u/PausedFox · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I couldn't tell precisely what you snagged off my wishlist when you placed the order and I totally didn't know what to expect. Perfect choices! I was ecstatic.

I have two more yet to arrive but so far I got:

  • Precision Kitchenware - Ultra Sharp Dual Julienne Peeler & Vegetable Peeler
  • The peanut butter extract I'm no longer able to find in my area
  • The badge holder that works best for my fancy new hospital badge

    I wanted to use the peeler and make some fancy pants dish to show, but I didn't want to be any later with my thank you post (it's been a very busy work week) than I already am. So for now we have a humble dish of lightly buttered squash noodles that was awesome. I cannot wait to do more with it.

    So again, absolute thanks and love for /u/makenoapologies ! :)
u/Michelllynn · 1 pointr/1200isplenty

I bought a julienne peeler off amazon for $8.00 and it works great! You can buy fancier contraptions but I say keep it simple to begin with!

Here's the one I got: Precision Kitchenware - Ultra Sharp Stainless Steel Dual Julienne & Vegetable Peeler with Cleaning Brush & Blade Guard

u/renational · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

many leave out butternut squash because of waste from the hard rind.
the trick is to invest in a heavy duty peeler, and peel the rind instead
of cutting away the flesh from the rind. that way you get higher yield.

here's what i use:

the squash helps sweeten the dish without having to add any sugars,
and it adds a firm melon like texture to contrast the s.pot starch.

u/eH9116 · 1 pointr/Paleo

I would recommend a simple julienne peeler instead of one of those giant plastic spiralizer:

It doesn't take much time and it's much easier to clean. I can do an entire zucchini in under 60 seconds with one of these things.

u/NerdsWithKnives · 1 pointr/tonightsdinner

Sure! The one I got is actually really cheap. $10 I think. I'll link it below. It's a simple gadget, you can't change the size or anything but I like it for things like stir fries, quick pickles etc. I make a lot of carrot and daikon pickles and it's great for that.

I'm so jealous you have ramps in that torte! It's going to be an AWESOME combination. They're so fragrant and perfect with ricotta and chard. YUM. Don't turn it over too soon or the butter will still be liquid. Man, it's so good, I'm ready to make it again already.

u/tesseracter · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

what about a Julienne Peeler?

u/Vudell · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

Bought this julienne off amazon, very easy to use and will be eating a lot more veggies from now on (I have been neglecting them for eggs, meat, cheese, butter, etc)

u/midnightcaller · 1 pointr/Paleo

I have one but never use it because it's a pain to clean. Then I got one of these Jillian peelers. It does a great job and you just throw it in the dishwasher.

u/overimbibe · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I think the issue with this as a BIFL item is that there isn't going to be a great way to keep the blades sharp. The one thing you need to ask yourself is "Do I need 3-4 different sizes of noodles?". The answer will help you narrow it down.

There really are only 4 styles stand, [cone] (, container - similar to one I bought
and scraper, including madolines and within those 4 styles there are 100s of manufacturers making the same product.

u/elielle · 1 pointr/loseit

I use a julienne peeler - it's super easy. I used this video to learn how at first, but added a couple steps at the end - rinsing the salt off and pressing the moisture out with a paper towel.

u/fprintf · -1 pointsr/videos

We have a plastic version called the Kuhn Rikon.

We've had the same peeler for 20 years and it is still about as sharp as they day we bought it. And I concur with all the reviews as well as on the OPs video, these are fantastic peelers that definitely do the job very well.

Actually, we have two of them but the one we originally bought it still going strong that we've never used the second one we bought just in case the first one broke. The trick is to rinse them in fresh water and dry, never put them in the dishwasher or for that matter in with any other dishes. Rinse, dry, put it away, and it'll stay sharp a long time.
