    My boyfriend really liked this one, and I thought it was good, but not amazing. The peeling and julienning is kind of a pain, too.

    This is fresh new way to fix carrots. I thought they were very good and will make often.

    My son gave this 2 thumbs up! I like it that it's quick and easy, especially since I can buy carrots already julienned in my supermarket.
