Many cooks look for excuses to play with kitchen toys, and the Joyce Chen Spiral Slicer, or Spiralizer, is getting a close look in many kitchens, especially where raw foods are favoured. It's handy for making garnishes and slicing vegetables into a variety of shapes including strands, spirals and flat pieces. It's safer than the traditional mandolin since the cook's fingers can not come in contact with the blade.
