The spiral vegetable slicer is the kitchen gadget you fall madly in love with the second you start using it. Most reviews begin with “where have you been all my life?!?!”. The spiralizer saves you so much time in the kitchen and provides simple cooking options you didn’t know were possible!
The Paderno Vegetable Spiralizer
I have found the Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer to be a great buy. It’s easy to use, works perfectly and is very affordable.
The Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer comes with three blades:
The Regular Blade
- The regular blade is perfect for spiraling zucchini to use as a substitute for pasta or noodles for popular Chinese dishes. It’s also perfect for spiraling up some curly fries. It’s even great for cutting up an onion! You’ll have an entire onion cut up in twenty seconds flat.
The Shoestring Blade
- The shoestring blade is perfect for cutting up carrots, radishes, and even cucumber for a salad. It’s also great to use with potatoes if your looking for an extra thin cut. If you’re wanting to give zucchini or yellow squash an angel hair pasta look, this is the blade to use.
The Ribbon Blade (shredding blade)
- The Ribbon blade, also referred to as the shredding blade, is quite versatile. It can quickly shred an entire cabbage or give a cucumber or zucchini a beautiful ribbon look to for a fancy salad or faux pasta. It’s also perfect for slicing up an apple to make apple chips. Just spiral the apple with the ribbon blade, top with some cinnamon and pop in the oven for a great snack.
To top it off it’s fairly easy to clean after use and the blades fit right into a side compartment for easy storage. If you want to bring some new food prep styles into your kitchen or save yourself a lot of time chopping or julienning a large quantity of veggies, the Paderno Vegetable Spiralizer is all you need.
