Have you jumped on the spiralizer bandwagon yet? If not, you’re missing out on a whole new way to eat your veggies. The good news is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to start making your own zoodles (that’s short for zucchini noodles) there are plenty of handheld spiralizers that won’t make a dent in your bank account or take up a ton of space in your kitchen.
WHAT IS A SPIRALIZER?
It’s a kitchen tool that easily makes noodles out of vegetables. Some models make vegetable ribbons and curls too, in addition to the noodles. One really great thing about these tools is that they’re very affordable, with the average price right around twenty dollars.
This is a gadget for home cooks and chefs alike. It’s also a great way to sneak extra vegetables into your diet, and the diets of those picky eaters in your life. And I have to say, they are pretty fun to use!
Leave it to OXO to have a perfectly ergonomic and safely designed spiralizer. The spiked cap grips the vegetable be it zucchini, potato, carrot, or beet and when you get toward the end, it protects your hand from the blade. The only downside is that this version only comes with one blade, so you can only make spaghetti-like noodles.
