    It's an odd name, it's also called a spiral slicer and some people call it a spiralizer. Another name is garnishing machine. I finally just said, listen, I'm confusing everyone because every time the company changed the name, I changed the name. And it's called the Salidako. It's now made in China. Red Smoothie Detox Factor  It's just a simple plastic gizmo, but what it does is really amazing. Here's what is does that's wonderful. It will take a vegetable, and the most commonly used vegetable is a zucchini. You put a three-inch piece of zucchini in this little thing and you turn the handle and what you get is pasta-shaped zucchini. It has this fascinating way of shredding it and you get long, long strands. I've had three and four feet long strands, where I've had to cut them in the bowl, of angel hair sized pasta made out of zucchini or carrot or beet or sweet potato or parsnip.

    It won't work with anything soft. Just turn like a tomato to mush, most cucumbers to mush. It has to be a good firm vegetable and this has revolutionized sort of the palate of raw people. You just never have to eat a salad. You can sit your kids down and they can eat this spaghetti and it's tossed in a pesto sauce, which I'm sure as you know is garlic and olive oil and lots and lots of basil and pine nuts, just no cheese and it doesn't taste any different, and then top it off with a raw marinara and suddenly it smells like and it looks like and it tastes like Italian spaghetti. The only difference is, it's not hot. This has, literally this little gadget has revolutionized, because you've got to have ways of doing food fast that's tasty.
