(WMC TV) - ANDY, WILL IT WORK? Spirooli = WISE BUY!

This suction-cupped, torture chamber-looking gadget is versatile, safe and -- the clincher -- it does what it claims.

The $25 Spirooli, with its three interchangeable blades, peeled and spiral-sliced everything Shelby County teacher and certified Chef Barrett Round (Twitter @chefezblue) speared on its spit.

"This is working quite well," Round said as he churned out curly fries from one potato. With a quick change of the blades, he spiraled potato chips out of another.

"Easy work," he said. "I could roll from an onion straight to cucumbers then carrots." As a matter of fact, he did: "They'd look great on a salad!"

Just one concern with the Spirooli: its lever.

On dense vegetables like cabbage, the lever's tough to negotiate. You have to choke up on it like a baseball bat in order to maintain leverage.

But when Round did that, he churned out perfectly sliced cabbage for cole slaw.

"Yep, I like it," he said.

The Spirooli is a WISE BUY.
