I bought this after joining Nutrisystem. I'm trying to get creative with vegetables. I did beets, zucchini, apples and cucumbers. They all worked out pretty well. The inner soft parts of what I spiralized do break but that's to be expected I suppose. I loved the beets in my salad and the zucchini I Place of noodles was really delicious. I like the thickness of the zucchini. I really haven't used it a lot. It I have the weekend off and plan to do more food prepping. Also the case it comes in is pretty nice. Solid construction and it fits on my old Hobart Kitchen aid that I was gifted. Three generations:) and I'm down 18 pounds in five weeks!!
