I spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing our food as does my husband in the mornings and on weekends. We’re happy to use any tool that makes our lives easier.
We recently were given the opportunity to try the Deiss Dual Julienne & Vegetable Peeler, and we both liked using it, though it did have some drawbacks.
What Does the Utensil Do?
The Deiss Dual Julienne & Vegetable Peeler can peel veggies or fruits, cut them into uniform match stick sizes, turn them into a thicker noodle size, or cut out bad spots in potatoes and other veggies.
What Are the Advantages to the Utensil?
This product is great for a number of purposes:
1. When making Paleo veggie noodles, I don’t have to use the vegetable peeler and then pull out the spiralizer (which can be difficult to wash). Instead, this one small tool accomplishes both of those tasks.
2. This tool makes veggies and fruits look more attractive because there are a variety of cuts you can use.
3. Clean up is a breeze because you’re only dirtying one tool instead of several.
In addition, unlike some flimsy peelers, this one has a weighted handle, so it was easier for me to use.
What Are the Disadvantages of the Utensil?
This tool can be a bit clunky to use. For instance, when peeling, sometimes the peeler gets stuck in the veggie, which means some of the flesh gets taken off with the skin. This felt wasteful to me.
While the tool is easy to use to make match stick slices (and I loved how uniform they were), as you get further into the vegetable and it gets smaller, using the tool is harder. I felt that I wasted more of the vegetable than I wanted to. However, even my spiralizer leaves a veggie core that can’t be spiralized, so I think this is a common problem.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
