Spiralizer Review and Giveaway from DeliciousObsessions.com Follow Me on Pinterest

When I first went grain-free last year, one of the main things I missed was spaghetti noodles. We didn’t eat pasta a lot, but there was this brand of quinoa pasta that we did enjoy on occasion. Funny how even when you don’t eat something often, if you know you can’t have it anymore, you instantly miss it.

Thankfully, I stumbled across the spiralizers, which is a great tool to help you make “noodles” out of veggies. Paderno World Cuisine was kind enough to send me two units of their spiral vegetable slicers, one for me to try out and one for me to give away (details at the bottom on how you can win!).

I love this slicer. Not only do I use it for making noodles for hot dishes (like spaghetti or noodle stir-frys), but I use it to make noodles and ribbons for salads and other cold dishes too. I also used it to make curly fries for my husband and he loved them! Some of the noodles that you’ll make can easily get to be two feet long. For kids, this makes food prep fun!

Who wouldn’t want to eat fun veggie noodles?

The product is made of durable plastic, and while I am not a huge fan of plastic, your food will not be touching it for very long, nor are you heating the plastic up. I am not too concerned with leaching any chemicals with this product. The main unit has suction cup feet, which ensure that it stays put while you are using it. It comes with 3 blades: 1/8-inch spacing (great for shoestring-style potatoes or other veggies), 1/4-inch spacing (great for curly fries and pasta “noodles”), and a straight blade for ribbon cuts (great for salads).

The Spiralizer.

Three different blades for different sized “noodles”.

You will have a core left of whatever you are slicing, but I just typically will eat that raw, slice it up real quick and add it to the sliced veggies, or give it to my dogs. My dogs LOVE vegetables, so this is a fun treat for them.

The leftover core and your spiral zucchini “noodles”. This used the 1/4″ blade.

Shoestring sweet potatoes. This used the 1/8″ blade.

Would I consider this a necessary kitchen tool? No. But, I have really enjoyed using it and having the ability to make vegetable noodles in an easy fashion. Cleanup is easy as well. Since I am just using it for veggies or fruit, I wash everything off by hand with a little soap and let it air dry. Dishwasher cleaning is not recommended. It will dull the blades and potentially warp the plastic if the heat in your dishwasher gets too hot. All in all, I am quite pleased with the unit.

  2. Hey Jess, Just entered the contest, but not sure if it went through or not. If you could make sure my entry is in, let me know. I can try again if need be.

    Also, we just bought a bunch of Coconut Oil. It is sooo good for us all. One of my Docs said it is good for my insides and in particular for surgery patients like me.

    Later,
    LeDean

    • Hi LeDean – I just checked and it does look like one entry went through (the “No Purchase Necessary Entry”). Did you do any others? If so, please try again and let me know when you did and I’ll double check! Happy to hear you’re loving the coconut oil too! :)

  3. Very helpful post Jessica. I’ve seen other reviews of this product, but never close-ups of what the noodles look like using the different blades. Thx!
