Vegetable 'sheeter'

So Im watching the cooking channel about a week ago ( dinner impossible, the one where he has to cook for the spelling bee students and family), and the chef made a vegetable lasagna. But instead of using lasagna noodles, he used this device that thinly peeled a zucchini ( its entire length all at once). It almost looked like a pasta machine. As he turned the crank, a wide, thin peel of zucchini was produced, to which he used as the 'noodle' in the lasagna he made. I didnt know what it was called, so I searched the internet unsuccessfully.

Last night I was watching the Iron chef ( the carrot battle) and she used this device to peel a carrot the same way. As she was describing it to the dish to the judges, she referred to it as a vegetable sheeter.

I searched again, but didnt find much, just one mention rom a restaurant supply company.

So, with all that said, anyone know what im talking about, if it has any other names, and where I could find one

Thanks in advance,

larry

Maybe a Japanese spiral peeler...or would a regular mandolin work?

I googled it, and found it, but had trouble posting a link. It does look like a spiral peeler. Neat looking gadget, would love to have one.

It definately has a crank, but it shears the zucchini, carrot the long way, almost as if it is unrolling it. As the crank is cranked, it creats a thin continuous shear , the entire length of the vegetable until the center is reached . I never saw it before until these past few episodes

Vegetable Sheeter

Hi Larry, I saw the same shows and wrote down the info too, because I was facinated with the vegetable sheeter and had to have one. I found one source and will continue to check for others, cause this is kinda of pricey. Anyway check it out. Bron Coucke Vegetable Lasagna Slicer. All Stainless, Vegetable & Fruit Tools

Apparently I can't post the url since I'm new, but if you do a search for this it'll come up. Hope this helps. If I find any more I'll post them.

I googled "vegetable sheeter", in quotations, and a site for Previn Inc came up. I'm having trouble posting the link.

Look at this site for one. Save your pennies. They're about $300 USD.
