This spiral slicer is my new best friend in the kitchen! I'd been wanting something like this for ages and I was so pleased when my father-in-law bought me this Gefu slicer from Lakeland. So far I have just used it for courgettes a few times and it's so easy to get these lovely long ribbons or 'noodles' using it. As a serving suggestion, I have used the sliced courgette like noodles in a stir fry - just chuck them in to heat through at the end of frying like you would with cooked or fresh noodles. Or serve them as a delicious side dish, sautéed in olive oil and garlic then sprinkled with black pepper and Parmesan cheese.
I also plan to use the spiral slicer for carrots and cucumbers to add some interesting texture to my salads. As one who gets excited by kitchen gadgets, I think this slicer is a useful little item and reasonably priced at around £10.
