BestOption2

Main Positive Comments:
It work with mostly everything except too thin veggies.
There is a rest of vegetable in the middle that does not get turned in spiral. However, they do great addition to soups or even smoothies, keep those frozen!

Main Negative Comments:
You need to learn how to use it before trying to spiralize hard veggies.
Most negative review are about it not working on hard vegetables, that the handle brooks when trying to use it with a hard vegetable and things like that. However, most positive feedback claim that if you go slow, align the veggie straight it will work with anything including sweet potatoes.

Conclusion:
It is a very nice choice, but you will have to get used to use it.

Based on those ratings, you might want to know why it is in second places?
Well, the negative reviews are about more different things, which mean that it seems like there are more limitation to the product.

Main Positive Comments:
Works well with everything. You do not need to learn how to use it with soft veggies before going in and working on a carrot or a sweet potatoes.
Less waste than the vertical spiralizer.
It goes to the dishwasher (if you are ready to disassemble some easy pieces).
It does not move and feel solid.

Main Negative Comments:

There are some more limitation: It only allows for small and medium sized vegetables. Compare to a horizontale spiralizer, you are limited in the size of the veggies.
The handle doesn’t stay in, you will need some practice before using the handle without having it going out.
Instruction (even if not really needed) aren’t wrote in proper english.
The bowl at the base is moving a lot, making it hard to use.

What is the Best Coffee for sale at Walmart?

Before you read my answer to this question you must understand that I only drink espresso, cappuccino or latte coffee.

I am not sure if my answer fit a american traditional coffee maker.

#1. Lavazza Coffee

At Walmart you can find a lot of brands of ground coffee. The one I usually choose is the Lavazza coffee. An Italian coffee perfect for my early morning espresso. The Lavazza coffee come in small 8.8 ounces bag. You have 2 types of bag to choose from, the normal bag and the under vacuum bag. I recommend you to choose the normal soft bag rather than the small brick under vacuum. The reason for this is that grounded coffee needs some air to breath. If you choose the bag deprived of air, you will lose some of your delicious coffee aroma and taste.

Lavazza Crema e Gusto

The flavor I usually pick is Crema e Gusto, which is just delicious in my espresso machine!

Potato Peeler vs Paring Knife

Potato Peeler vs Paring Knife

We all know that it is possible to peel a potato with a paring knife.
Many people are using it everyday and do not own nor use a potato peeler.

Today we ask 2 real questions:

Which One is Faster?
How much we waste by using a paring knife?

The Material:

Introduction to the test:

We wanted to know how much potatoes was wasted by using a regular knife and if it was quicker or slower than a potato peeler.

The way we did it:

  • We make 2 packs of 4 potatoes, we choose those to be same weight so we know there is as much potatoes in one stack and the other.
  • We weight the 2 stacks of potatoes and note the results.
  • We started the timer and peeled.

Using a Knife is Longer and waste 30% MORE!

  • It took nearly double time with a regular knife. This might have happen because we aren’t used to peel with a knife. I guess someone really used to it could do it in similar time.
  • We were meticulous to not remove useless potatoes and still, the knife waste 30% more potato! In fact, a potato peeler can save you time and cash. I know potatoes aren’t that expensive, but saving 30% potatoes your whole life can end up in a real savings.
