It is so expensive and the results are not at all good
1. The blades are sharp but the holder is placed so far away for the blade that only one forth of the vegetable gets covered
2. You might get some spirals and some rings from potato or carrot but you will end up wasting 1/4 of it as it doesn’t get used . It remains on the surface
3. Onions gets chopped it won’t come out as rings
So basically a knife would anyway do a better job
I used it very late and time to return is over I just wish I could return it . So disappointed
Not at all worth buying and now occupying space in the House
1) There's much less waste, because it doesn't create a wasted core (yeah, I know you can use it for something else, but when I'm spiralizing, I want spirals...).
2) Because it's vertical in operation, it's much easier to use - it just works so much better than the horizontal models, that the importance of this simply can't be overstated.
3) While it doesn't pack away as neatly as the Paderno, it's easier to put away and set up. I find that I'm much more likely to just grab the Mueller and use it.
4) There's much less "mess", so clean-up is easier.
5) The versatility of the Mueller's ability to be used as a mandolin also meant I could get rid of a couple others I had lying around.
As to the negative reviews based on the "danger factor", I'd say anyone who finds the Mueller to be that dangerous should stay away from knives, food processors, mandolins, vegetable peelers, in short most of the utensils in the kitchen, because this one's no different: Follow the directions and you'll be fine. I really don't mean that as sarcastically as it sounds in print - this thing has a lot of really sharp blades, and they cut really well, so that pretty much tells the story, I think. Perhaps those reviews were for a previous model - I don't know - but the one I received has a crank that you have to put one hand on (to, um, crank it), and a small hand icon symbol indicating where your other hand should go (to put a bit of downward pressure on the vegetable). That took care of both of my hands, so unless you've got a third, I don't see how you can cut yourself when you're using it for spiralizing. As for cutting yourself when using it as a mandolin, well, they're all at least as dangerous as kitchen knives, in that respect - whatever you push up against them, it's going to cut. I know I've cut myself on pretty much everything in the kitchen over the years, fortunately never seriously, but it's taught me to be careful (even with the corners of cabinet doors, as my forehead can attest to...), so this device can just be added to the list of "pay attention while using" devices.
The Mueller isn't perfect. I wish the finished product container was larger, or at least better centered under the blade when you're using it as a spiralizer, because about 3/4 of the way through most vegetables, the strands start to overflow the front edge. If it were larger, perhaps everything, including the main arm, could fit in the container for storage. Also, a plastic "dummy" cover that fills the hole where the blades go when you're using it would be really nice for storage, too, to keep things from falling into it. But these are pretty trivial nuisances, compared to how much better it is functionally. Until these little details are corrected (maybe by a new model, Mueller? hint, hint...), this is my go-to spiralizer and medium-volume mandolin/julienne device.
A quick update after having used the Mueller Spiralizer quite frequently for a couple months: it continues to be the best of the bunch, by a wide margin. I've given the Paderno away because I had no use for it any longer. The quality of the Mueller still impresses me - the blades show no signs of getting dull, even though I often use it for processing turnips and rutabagas. An awesome product. I've also found that the grating functionality is an even bigger advantage than I originally expected it to be: not just a nice bonus, the Mueller would be a very useful addition to my kitchen for that feature alone. Still 5 stars!
I chose the Spiral Ultra from amongst all the spiralizer offerings on Amazon because although the reviews were better, they weren't that much better. And with all the “cooked” reviews on Amazon being so prevalent these days, I was still wary. But the vertical design, with the ability to press down, instead of horizontally, on a harder vegetable, just seemed like a better engineering solution to me.
The day I received it, I opened the box after a long day, with the intent to make some spiralized zucchini in place of the pasta for a pasta dish of vegetables with olive oil that I make. The dish normally has sautéed zucchini as one of the ingredients, so I knew I'd like it. I'd read a few things on-line that said to cook the zucchini separately, as it gives up water, but I wasn't concerned for that, and didn’t do it.
Anyway, as I pulled the parts out of the box, the blades had safety tape upon them, rather than a mere cover-your-legal-bum reference to their danger in the instructions. I liked that. The preemptive, proactive safety considerations were worth a star to me.
I pulled out the wider julienne blade, and remembered that I'd seen on one of the reviews that the blade sets in one of two directions, 90 degrees apart. But even after setting it in correctly, I still felt I needed the directions.
And this is the only problem I saw with the product... those directions. The photographs are a nice change from the non-descript and often ineffective line drawings that are so common these days, but the directions were very scanty. I looked again in the box, thinking I had missed a manual, but no, it was just the one sheet of photos with instructions next to them. I thought perhaps a manual was supposed to be there, and missed in the packing of the box?
At any rate, I then went on youtube.com, and after a few minutes of a long video of frustration watching a girl flub her way through figuring it out (I had already done that myself, and didn't need to watch any more of hers), I went to the official Mueller Spiral Ultra video, and watched their representative go through using all the attachments. I then promptly got up, did what she did, and made some very satisfactory zucchini spirals. Later, when I finally looked at the email that the seller had sent me, I found out that they sent me several links with instructions for how to use it, along with a lot of other helpful tips. This was worth a star to me. (And by the way, my dinner was delicious!)
So, although I might have docked a star for lack of thorough instructions in the box, the easy accessibility of the information on the web, plus the excellent customer service (that I missed at first, but was grateful for later) cancelled that out. So at this point, the product still stood at one star.
I've owned appliances that have suction cups for stabilizers before, and honestly, they are hit and miss, and mostly miss. But these must be of a particular material, or manufacture, for they did not slip. Since the day I first received it, I’ve done harder vegetables like carrots and sweet potatoes, and the suction cups still held firm. I attribute this partly to the unique vertical design. I am quite sure that the ability to press down on the side where the suction cups are is why the product doesn’t "walk" on the counter, even when doing these harder vegetables. So, for unusual stability, I had to give another star. The product now stood at two stars.
I don't wash certain things in the dishwasher... knives, pots and pans, food processor parts, etc. These are the things that are dulled or otherwise corrupted over time by the harsh chemicals of dishwasher detergents. So, although this product is top shelf dishwasher safe, and thereby convenient to clean, I want to say that the parts are very convenient to wash by hand, as well. Of course, I guard myself with the blades, but this cleanup convenience added another star. The rating now stood at three stars.
The small footprint for storage, as demonstrated by the representative in the youtube video, really rates two extra stars in my book. All of the attachments fit together compactly in the collection bin, which stores neatly in the spiralizer. I'm a middle aged homemaker, and I really don't want any more doodads that take up a bunch of storage space. The small footprint for storage is a huge plus for me, and so the rating now stood at 5 stars.
I have used the grater and the mandolin, and they are easy to use, as easy as my old mandolin, which I gave away after having used this a few months now. The blades are sharp, the base is stable, and the container that catches the cuttings is ample. And though I haven’t used the other attachments so far, I suspect I will in time. So, since the time of my first use, the rating has gone up to 6 stars.
Finally, the very fact of the vertical design is engineering genius. I looked at many spiralizers on Amazon. I looked at ones in my local kitchen stores. I did not see any that had a vertical design besides this one. For this alone, I give another star. That makes 7. Incidentally, this product is made in Austria. They know engineering. Plus, they’re not China. Just sayin’. Not adding a star for that, though I could.
So although the rating may go up in the future, the current rating is 7 stars. Or 8 if you count that it’s not from China.
But wait… Amazon only does a rating on a scale of 1 to 5. Well, that's not enough numbers for how good this is. Really.
Although we order many things from here, I do not do many reviews on Amazon. I hate to review things badly, unless they are very bad and I feel I should warn folks. But very few things are really great anymore, so I don't review most things anymore simply because most things are mediocre.
But this Spiral Ultra is one of the few_ very _good products I have gotten in a long time. It is good enough to buy for my two grown daughters.
All of that said... not enough stars. 7 out of 5. Or more.
Before making a decision to purchase it, I researched handheld, crank and electric sprializers for several months.
I purchased locally and tried 3 small cheap handheld ones.
They produced good results, but were tiresome and annoying to use.
I would prefer an electric spiralizer, but none of them have good customer ratings.
I used the Mueller one soon after arrival. I processed several large thick carrots with different spiral blades. All the results were good.
I have a limited cabinet space in my kitchen, so I gladly replaced some baking items with my new culinary treasure and donated my handheld sprializers to a charity store.
The features that convinced me that this was the one for me:
1) It holds vegetables vertically instead of horizontally. Just makes sense to me.
2) It has a clear bin that catches the spirals. I did not want spirals all over my countertop.
3) It has a high customer rating on Amazon. I read many critical and glowing reviews before I decide anything.
4) It is a product of Austria. I expect better quality and longevity of US and European products.
5) Substantial warranty and responsive customer service.
I am very glad I ended up choosing this device for my spiralizer! I have spent more on mandolins and other odd vegetable cutting pieces that just sit around and take up space. It's also incredibly satisfying to watch vegetables turn into chips or noodles. After I had seen the video on their website I knew I had to buy it! I was not disappointed! This guy will probably last me for years to come!
The unit seems well made and durable but I gave the unit only 4 stars for materials and durability because it’s mostly plastic...but then it wasn’t as expensive as a lot of the others, either. So if you’re experimenting with a spiralizer I’d recommend trying this product — if you’re like me, you won’t need a larger, more expensive product!
My only problem with this is that the one page instruction sheet it comes with is not enough. I'm not a very experienced cook, so even trying to figure out how the orange juicer was supposed to fit on the device was difficult. As far as actually using the spiralizer the pictures on the package were more helpful than the "instruction" sheet. I'd recommend to the manufacturer making at least like a 4-6 page booklet showing how the attachments work, what blades give what kind of noodles, and how to use the product in general. If they want to be really creative they could include a few recipe ideas for things to do with it, but there are plenty of those online anyway, I would be very happy with just more detailed usage instructions. It's possible more seasoned cooks can figure it out no problem and it's just me with this issue.
Bottom line, I would give this product about 4.5 stars, just knocking the 1/2 star off for lack of instructions, but I LOVE the product and will highly recommend it to my friends/family. I may even get a few as gifts!
(I did receive in my box an ad for a free julienner peeler set with my review of the product, so I sent the company this exact same review. My opinions/review of the product are in no way influenced by that and I would have reviewed it anyway, it's an awesome gadget!)
1. Vertical cutting instead of the others that cut foods horizontally. Vertically cutting lessens the possibility of the device sliding across the table. The Mueller spiralizer has suction cups that further prevent any possible sliding.
2. "No core" slicing. The Mueller slicer doesn't leave out the food's core unlike horizontal slicers.
3. Built in collection bowl. No need to have a separate bowl for collecting the sliced foods; this spiralizer comes with one built in.
4. The collection bowl acts a storage compartment to hold all of the components.
Overall, a 5 star product!
I wanted a spiralizer for quite a while, but didn't like the aesthetics of bulky horizontal models, their huge exposed blades or the number of assembly steps required before use. The sleek Mueller SpiralUltra was ready to roll as soon as the smoothly rotating crank shaft was screwed on. Disassembly for washing is just as easy.
The manufacturer has some very good YouTube videos on this model. There are also loads of great spiralizer recipes on YT that will appeal to vegans and omnivores alike. The very attractive Mueller SpiralUltra is lots of fun to use and it would be a great gift for anyone.
