I bought a Veggetti tonight at Bed Bath and Beyond. I used it as soon as I got home. It did not feel flimsy, felt well made. It has two different size shredders and I used both and couldn't tell the difference. I used this on a zucchini. It did fine until you got to the end of the zucchini and were supposed to use the attachment with the forks or spikes that would hold on to your veggie at this point. All it did was eat a hole in the zucchini and it would not actually hold onto the veggie. It had large chunks of zucchini that I could not shred. It seemed rather wasteful.
I have not used this with carrots yet but I suspect that it would be better because they're are much harder. Then it was hard to clean and the shredder is sharp. A bit of zucchini got stuck at the skinny part of the shredder on both sizes. I actually needed a tooth brush to get it out.
While I don't think it was a complete wash, the product needs some improvement. There are more expensive similar items out there. I am curious as to how they would stand up in comparison. I haven't decided if I'm going to return it. I really did enjoy "Zuchetti" because it had a nice flavor and I used it in spaghetti tonight. I mixed it with whole grain pasta and it was very good. However, it's the tool I'm talking about here, not the taste.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
