Perfect gift for any veggie lover or anyone who loves to cook. This is easy to put together and uses. I don't like to read the directions. I like to figure things out myself and this is basically self explanatory. I love that the veggies go right into the container to store for later or you can use it without the storage container and it can go rite into your pot. Love that it comes with a brush which makes it easier to clean up. This is must have in all kitchens.
