Lately it seems like I'm reviewing a ton of kitchen utensils but we have been so actively engaged in cooking now and it's fun to have all these things to make it easier. I love carrots and would like to include them in more salads and stir fry, but of course, peeling and cutting carrots can be time consuming. It's not terrible, but getting the right size slices for a stir fry certainly isn't my favorite way to spend my time. So when I was given the option to review the Spiral Ninja, which juliennes vegetables for you, I was excited.
The Spiral Ninja comes in a small box with instructions and then is kept in a pouch. The logo is adorable. I know that's not really an important feature in a kitchen utensil, but I did think it was cute.
This works basically like a pencil sharpener. You put your vegetable in one end and turn it, and the blades slice it for you. It's extremely easy to use and even easier to clean and store. We decided to use this to add carrots to a meal we were making, because we have tons of carrots but I wasn't in the mood to chop them up and I figured it would give me a chance to try this out. It's MUCH faster than slicing carrots and they come up a better size for salads, pastas, stir fry, etc.
Here's the sliced carrots on the meal:
I am actually very excited about the Spiral Ninja and I plan to use it a lot in stir fry. The added convenience of ensuring that the vegetables are sliced small enough, yet also saving time, is just too good to pass up and I really recommend this if you eat a lot of veggies or prefer smaller slices.
