Pros are that it spirals small sized zucchini and squash as described. Fun to use. Would probably be a great way to get your children to eat their veggies.
Cons are that larger pieces have to be cut in half to use if they stay on the spikes. Very hard to clean. Even when you take it completely apart, which you will, as the juices from the vegetables drip into every part. There is one area in particular under the bladed section that when you remove the grooves build up the juices. The blades were covered with clear very sticky tape and when you pull the tape off there is residue left that you will cut your fingers trying to remove.
I paid $16.00 at Walmart. Would I buy it again? No. As I could use a peeler to get about the same results. With much easier cleanup.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
