Gusteaux Quadghetti Spiralizer Makes New Words With Gusto

Gusteaux Quadghetti 4-blade Spiralizer

Vegetable spiralizer. Veggie spiralizer. Veggie spirals. Vegetable spiral. Just a few years ago, these words would not be found together. Now, of course, spiral cutters are popular and that means all these words can be found all jumbled together — kinda like a pile of veggie noodles on your plate.

The Gusteaux Quadghetti 4-blade Spiralizer is a new, affordable spiral slicer that comes with four different blades (3mm, 5mm, 10mm and 70 mm). Capable of making spiral cuts on a variety of different vegetables, the kitchen gadget makes it easy to put a new twist on otherwise ordinary meals. And if a new spin on food isn’t enough of a mouthful, saying ‘Gusteaux Quadghetti Spiralizer’ 3 times fast (well, better make that 4) certainly is.

Water Spinach Splitter

Water Spinach Splitter, The Best Shredder For Morning Glory Vegetable, Chinese Water Spinach Or Thai Water Spinach, Fun And Useful Kitchen Gadget, Great Gift For Any Foodie. by Asian 108 Markets

Forget spiral slicers, veggie splitters are what it’s all about now. The Water Spinach Splitter looks to bring to the masses a specialized kitchen gadget that creates a neat garnish quickly and easily.

Product Description:

Water spinach (rau muong in Vietnamese, ong choy in Cantonese) is a super popular green vegetable in Southeast Asia and Southern China, where it grows literally like a weed. The tender leaves and tops are boiled and stir-fried. The tougher, hollow stems (about 1/4 inch wide) are resourcefully split so that they’re easier to chew.

In the Vietnamese kitchen, the shreds of stems are soaked in water until curly and crunchy. There’s just a slight grassy flavor in the stems, which are enjoyed mostly for their nutritional value and texture.

Typically, the shreds are lightly dressed with a vinaigrette for a salad or set out as a noodle soup garnish for guests who want to add extra crunch and fiber to their meal. (Eating too much of the stems, however, may lead to constipation.) Indeed, there’s little waste when you’re feeding lots of people.

A knife is traditionally used to split the stems, but the modern water spinach splitter (dao che rau muong, literally “knife for splitting water spinach”) works much better and saves time.

For a more personal take, check out Wandering Chopsticks for a nice little story of discovery and enjoyment.

Love Pizza Cutter

Love Pizza Cutter Valentine's Day Slice of Love

Nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like a sharp cutting implement. Relationships require trust, right? Like, perhaps, the trust to order the pizza with the correct toppings. (Or, more importantly the trust to not order the pizza with the incorrect toppings, because anchovies do not equal love.) Knowing this, pizza places long ago came up with the idea of half-toppings. Really, just think how many relationships were saved with the concept. Yes, everybody can be happy. Now, if it’s a frozen pizza that’s another story… and it will need a pizza cutter regardless of what the toppings are.

One way to accomplish the pizza cutting is with the sharp Love Pizza Cutter that promises pizza to be a ‘slice of love.’ If you are picking up one for your honey on Valentine’s Day, you’ll need a pizza to go with it. Have a romantic night in and pick up a pie, making sure, of course, to get the correct toppings! Let’s keep that ‘slice of love’ confined to the pizza.

Paderno World Cuisine 4-Blade Spiralizer

Paderno World Cuisine 4-Blade Spiralizer -- Spiral Cutter

Why spiral once when you can spiral four times? Spiral cutters seem to be big right now, and it’s easy to see why. They are simple contraptions that make it easy to add a dimension of flair to home cooked meals.

Often however, they are unitaskers: little gadgets that only do one thing. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though; think of a common grater — they don’t do much else than grate food, but are extremely handy little devices in the kitchen. Of course, having more grating options like fine, medium or course makes it all the more useful. So too with the spiral cutters.

The Paderno World Cuisine 4-Blade Spiralizer ups the ante for a spiral cutter and features four interchangeable blades:

– Straight/Accordion Blade: Create ribbon cuts for salads, shredded cabbage for coleslaw, vegetable pasta, apple chips, and when used with the included pin you can create the popular spiral cut potato skewers.

– Angel Hair Shredding Blade (NEW): This blade creates perfect angle hair strands out of fruit and vegetables. Angel hair strands are ideal for use in soups, salads, and as a replacement for traditional pasta with a delicate sauce.

– Fine Shredding Blade: This is our popular “spaghetti” blade and is used to create a medium-sized cut for pasta replacement, stir-fry, and salads. Theses strands will hold up to a heavier or more substantial sauce like Bolognese.

– Chipping Blade: This blade allows you to create thicker stands or cuts. These thicker cuts are perfect for roasting and sautéing, and create an amazing base for many sauces. Make curly fries in mere moments with just a few turns of the handle.

The little kitchen countertop prep tool works by attaching a fruit or vegetable to the blade plate on one end and prongs on the other. Then, just twist the handle and let your imagination spin.
