About Skinny Gourmet
Skinny Gourmet is a device that makes noodles from vegetables like zucchini, squash or carrots, saving you from having to eat unnecessary carbs or gluten from real noodles. Being able to avoid these carbs and calories is supposed to help you lose weight.
An Idea Village product, the Skinny Gourmet is sold under the As Seen on TV brand.
How Skinny Gourmet Works
Skinny Gourmet has two different blades embedded in a dual funnel shaped piece of plastic. One side makes thick noodles while the other makes thin ones. You simply put a vegetable in one of the ends and twist and the blades peel the vegetable, creating noodles from it.
These vegetable noodles contain far few calories and carbs than regular pasta, which will help you lose weight if you eat them instead of regular pasta and noodles. The vegetable noodles also contain no gluten.
Among the dishes you can make with the Skinny Gourmet are shrimp scampi, spaghetti and pasta primavera. You can also put the noodles in stir fries or carrot slaw.
The Skinny Gourmet’s compact design means that it can be stored easily in any drawers and its easy grip handle makes it a breeze to use. When you are done using it, you can pop it into the dishwasher.
The Skinny Gourmet also comes with a cheese grater attachment that’s perfect for parmesan cheese.
It does not have any consumer reviews online yet.

While the Skinny Gourmet might work the way it’s supposed to, (and since it’s basically just a specially designed vegetable peeler/grater, there’s no reason to think it wouldn’t) the real question is whether you would want to eat spaghetti made from zucchini or squash. If you think that sounds appetizing, the Skinny Gourmet might be a good product for you to try.
Curry "pasta" noodles
I ordered this sometime ago and I waited and waited to get it. My plan was to send it back and get my money back. but I tried it with a zucchini-it worked much better than the Veggetti "as seen on TV". I had some curry sauce and put that on it--it was very good. The zucchini really had no flavor and was definitely better than those Miracle or Tofu noodles. I will use it again for any pasta dishes.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
What is going on with it?
Ordered it in December, never received it, received a card saying it was on back order and would arrive by March 4th. Checked on March 20th, order was cancelled. Yet they are still promoting them on their website. Don't waste your time.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Terrible would have loved to use it but never received it
I placed an order for this on Jan. 4 2014 I have still not received this item and after just calling them I found out they don't have any in stock. After waiting for over a month and a half. I have just canceled my order. It was for a gift I'm very disappointed.
