    I've now got a hankering for one of those devices for making courgette "ribbons" that you always see for sale at country fairs and the like

    It's been grand, no more deep fried chips. Best of all though is doing Rotos huevos y jamon

    Throw some sliced potatoes in with paprika, cook for 20 minutes then bung in serrano ham or chorizo then cook for 5 minutes. Tip onto a plate and stick a couple of forked fried eggs on top - absolutely lush

    We used to have one of those! I'd forgotten all about it. Really good gizmo, as it 'appens.

    That sounds good. We have one of the Tefal Actifries but not used it for anything other than chips.

    We've got one that bolts onto the front of the 'Kitchen aid' mixer, trust me you don't want one (it came free with the mixer, if I'd bought it I'd be miffed)

    It’s nasty toxic stuff and its manufacture even nastier. Known this for a long while, but there is a good BBC documentary ‘Storyville’ on iplayer.
    I’d rather not have it in my life.

    A spiralizer. I bought a cheap one and tried to do carrot. Bad idea..

    The expensive ones are no better, it's the concept of 'spiralizing' that's a stoooooopid idea

    I am sorely tempted by this

    Elegant simplicity (by spiralizer standards). I'm sure Mrs N will be delighted on Xmas Day :gun:
