While wandering around Walmart yesterday looking for a heavy duty food safe squeeze bottle, which happened to be on the row I thought it should be on but I somehow missed it the first time, I saw this.
It’s an electric spiralizer. I was so tempted to get it but then I figured . . $39.97 for an electric appliance . . probably isn’t going to last long. My hand cranked one works fine. I use it often and it really isn’t that much trouble and it takes up a whole lot less room than the electric model.
I took Vince by and showed him.
Me: I’m tempted to get this.
Vince: If you would use it, why don’t you?
Me: I doubt it’s going to last long for $39.97.
Vince: So you’re not getting it because it doesn’t cost enough?
Me: No, I’m not getting it because they cannot spell “accommodate” and because, really, I use way more VEGGIES than I do YEGGIES!
Vince decided, probably correctly, that I really didn’t want it.
It’s kinda bad enough that so much of our manufacturing is done in another country but seriously, they might want to work just a little harder to get the display a little more accurate. I get really frustrated with myself when I go back and see typos and mistakes here on the blog so I feel bad for even laughing at those mistakes but they only had a few words to get right!
And, besides that . . they have what looks to be the exact same thing at Walmart online for $22.13.
I’m laughing! the first thing I noticed was the yeggies and I said,”what the heck are yeggies?”
If you ever decide to get one, get the spiralizer attachment for your stand mixer (Kitchenaid has one at least). That way you aren’t getting a new appliance, just an attachment for one you already have! I don’t use mine often but it’s just a few more pieces in the “Kitchenaid stuff” basket in my cupboard. I finally used the peel/slice/core attachments to make a crustless apple pie for Thanksgiving and it was so much easier than doing all of those by hand with two children under the age of 3 under foot (they love to escape the living room with daddy to see what I’m doing in the kitchen. Because of course they do!).

People do not know how to spell! You should have seen some of the things I had to type into reports! And because they were legal documents, I had to type them in exactly like the staff wrote them! You would not believe some of the stuff they wrote! And these were at least high school graduates and some of them were college graduates! Have you ever typed a word wrong intentionally! It is really hard to do!!
It’s an interesting thing, but I’ll just use my knife and make straight cuts. =) Now what tempted me today was a double crockpot. If each had been more than 1.25 quarts, I might have succumbed, even though there’s no way to store it, and I don’t cook for company. It would have been great for keeping a couple of veggies warm when having a buffet dinner for the missionaries or something. But I didn’t get it either. We were good today! =)
