Giveaway #3: Spiral Slicer

Other giveaways:

Giveaway #1: Marie Madeline $50 gift certificate!
Giveaway #2: Navigating History

This is giveaway #3 in our string of concurrent giveaways.  Did you enter the first and second?  Even if you’re not interested in all 3 giveaways, could you please consider doing me a favor?  I’d really like to make these giveaways successful for the sponsors; would you help spread the word by blogging about them?

Moving on…

When Marci asked me to host a giveaway for a Spiral Slicer from her general store, I had to agree.  After all, it makes curly fries!

Spiral Slicer

Believe it or not, this contraption is so easy to operate that my 9yo and 10yo pulled it out of the box and cut apples 3 different ways with absolutely no input from me.

I don’t necessarily recommend letting young children use it unsupervised, though.  It has sharp exposed blades, and my 6yo managed to draw blood when she carelessly picked up an insert by the business end.

I had to help when we sliced sweet potatoes for fries, but we still got the job done far faster than if we had done it the old-fashioned way.  Two very large sweet potatoes took just a minute or two and filled 2 cookie sheets!

Marci says that her family uses it to make “zoodles” – zucchini noodles.  If that’s the case, would potato noodles be poodles?  I wonder what my family would say if I offered them poodles simmered in chicken broth?

This little baby does everything it’s supposed to do.  The kids are convinced that apples taste much better when sliced like potato chips.  Hmm.  I guess it makes sense.  Potatoes taste much better when sliced like potato chips.  Speaking of which, I can’t wait to make let the kids make potato chips.   Wait – what am I thinking?  Curly fries. Yes, seasoned curly fries.

What would you make?

    I really like the Amazing Graze store. I have been there before, and since my dh is taking up hunting, and I have lots of children to make food for, I would really like one of their Excalibur dehydrators someday. That slicer would surely be nice, too!
