Even if you’re not trying to cut back on your carbs, vegetable “noodles” are still a fun and tasty way to eat healthily, maximize your intake of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, and fight against chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Turning your produce into faux noodles is simple with a good spiral vegetable slicer. These spiralizers will help you add some pizzazz to your veggie dishes with ease!
Essential Questions When Choosing a Spiralizer
Here are some things to ask yourself before buying:
- What type of vegetables and fruits do you want to spiralize? The design of the spiralizer has to accommodate the shape and size of the produce you want to cut. Also, not all designs can handle tougher, more fibrous vegetables.
- How easy is it to use? Handheld spiralizers are generally ready to go and simple to use. If the spiralizer requires assembly, make sure putting it together is not a chore. The design of any spiralizer should hold vegetables firmly and remain stable during cutting.
- How easy is it to store? Handheld spiralizers are generally the easiest to store. If you have the counter or cabinet space, spiralizers with hand-turned cranks and automatic spiralizers are good options.
- What are the cleaning options? Make sure the cutting parts of the spiralizer are dishwasher safe. Brushes are useful for clearing food stuck in blades.
