Does anyone really need a tool for making vegetable spirals and ribbons? How would we use it? We quickly discovered that a spiralizer is a gadget that can nudge our family into eating more veggies. Equipped with four blades, the Paderno Spiralizer transforms vegetables into thin strands as well as spiral cuts, shoestrings and ribbon "noodles." Another plus is an accessory for creating fancy accordion cuts. This spiral vegetable slicer is great for slicing raw vegetables and fruits for salads, pastas, side dishes, stir-fry's and garnishes, and even shoestring fries.
Spiralized veggies can then be steamed, sautéed, roasted or eaten raw. The Paderno 4 blade Spiralizer is simple to use - prongs hold vegetables tightly against a cutting blade-while a crank is turned to produce long ribbons or skinny, curled, and twisted pasta-like spirals. We particularly liked the way it worked on beets and zucchini. We even used it to add strands of cucumbers and carrots to our sushi salad.
This is the updated version of the original Paderno Spiralizer Slicer, which was actually created about 20 years ago. By the way, this spiral slicer was selected as best in its category by Cook's Illustrated.
