As a garnish, in salads or even as a pasta substitute, spiral-cut veggies offer a wide array of culinary possibilities. Of the many spiralizers we tested, this one was our clear favorite.
It is reliably constructed with good-quality stainless-steel blades and sturdy components made of high-strength ABS plastic. It sets up in seconds and is safe and easy to use.
It's also fast – we processed 10 lb of carrots in less than 10 minutes with remarkably consistent results and minimal waste.
Four interchangeable blade sets let you select the cut (spiral, coarse and fine as well as an extra-fine pattern that yields delicate strands similar to angel-hair pasta). The spiked holder grips vegetables securely as you turn and press, and suction-cup feet keep the unit stable in use.
All parts clean with a quick rinse and fit inside the housing for compact storage. An interesting “twist” on preparing vegetables, with many creative and practical applications.
