"KitchenSelect" products and where to find their slicer?

I went to the State Fair this weekend and a company called, "Kitchen Select" was selling super-overpriced pans that work without water. Pretty neat but I can't afford $2500 pans.

Anyways, they had this neat vegetable slicer thing. It kinda looked like an apple peeler/core tool that you suction to the counter and then attach a cylindrical grater blade to it and then just turn a handle with your hand. Real easy to clean up and a lot less cumbersome than dragging out the food processor to slice vegetables. I want one but don't know where to find it. I tried to google "manual vegetable slicer" but couldn't find it. Can someone help?

Jeff

Oh wait, here is something very similar but this one sits on a cutting board. Know of any other models that are very similar to this but work by suction?

Isn't it nice to see the hawkers selling stuff like that at fairs? Nothin' like waterless cookware. But, for me, just bring on the good old Sledge-O-Matic.

Alix,

Same concept but it is for slicing vegetables. It looks very similar to the link I posted above.

To me, a "manual vegetable slicer" would be a knife. Check "as seen on tv" sites, perhaps.
