Q:

Q:

IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS SLICES ONLY AND DOES NOT OFFER A "CHOP" MODE, IS THAT CORRECT?

MaryLu B.  asked on  Apr 3, 2012

A:

That is correct. There is 2 ways to accomplish chopping. #1) spin the handle about four or five times, then tug on the veggies to pull them apart into smaller strings. #2) once you've finished slicing, just take a knife to the pile of cut product.

Q:

What is the model # on this unit? Is it the same unit as the spiroolini? Is it the A4982799? How big of diameter vegetable/fruit can it use?

Joan W.  asked on  Apr 3, 2012

A:

The model number is A4982799. It has been nick-named Spirooli by many. The largest diameter of vegetables that it can handle is about 6 inches.

Q:

It pictures apples and I believe thin, spiral sliced apples. Does this gadget happen to "core, skin, slice/spiral"--either all at once or any feature? Also, is there any type of plastic container that slides underneath to catch cut product (that's not visible in photo)?? Thanks!

kira e.  asked on  Apr 3, 2012

A:

Hello Kira. The unit can only core about 3/8" of an inch as it spirals. It does not skin the product. There is no plastic container that catches the product but you can slip a bowl under the end where the product comes out.

Q:

how safe is this and if i don't like it or it dose not work can return it?

Khadija H.  asked on  Apr 3, 2012

A:

This unit is pretty safe although it's not a toy and should never be used by a child. If used as directed, its safe as your hands will not be near the blades unless you're changing them. Even then, if you follow the instructions, it's fine. If the unit does not work due to a manufacture defect you can simply return it.

Q:

Can this cut uncooked regular potatoes (not just sweet potatoes)?

Shantal R.  asked on  Apr 3, 2012

A:

Absolutely, this unit is made for raw vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, etc.

Q:

Does the unit just do straight, flat slicing as well...?

Anthony M.  asked on  Apr 3, 2012

A:

Because it is a turning slicer, it will always cut in a circular pattern. If you use the straight blade, it will cut flat strips that you can straighten out once finished.

Q:

Does this have any kind of warranty ? Are blades replaceable/available or can they be sharpened ? Thanks, Deb

Deborah R.  asked on  Apr 3, 2012

A:

Hello Deborah. This unit has a 1 year warranty against manufacture defects. Replacement blade sets are available for this unit. They cannot be sharpened just because the blades are fixed to the plastic holder.

Q:

Will this also do julienne cuts?

JACKIE  asked on  Apr 3, 2012

A:

Hello Jackie. Yes, this unit does cut julienne strips. They can be as long or short as you like depending on the length of time you spin the vegetable. It comes with 2 sizes of julienne blades + a straight blade for ribbons.
