A Spiralizer That
Gets The Job Done.
spiralizer cuts your vegetables into long, thin
strips for recipes where you want something
noodle-like. These range from finger-width strips to
thin angel hair pasta-like noodles.
This tool is by no means going to make or break a
raw food diet, but it can add some spice to your
meals and lets you impress cooked-food friends.
I find these types of spiralized vegetables
perfect for my raw
pasta sauce recipes and other dressings.
I'm particulary fond of
but there are tons of squashes
and other vegetables to choose from.
Avoid The Junk
I originally bought a Joyce
Chen Saladacco Spiral Slicer,which
was a piece of junk, despite being recommended by a
ton of raw food sites.
Though it's cheaper than my recommendation, it
doesn't slice all that well. It requires that your
vegetables be 1 inch in diameter and 3-1/2 inches in
After it's done you're left with an inch of unused
vegetable that it can't slice.
The blades easily pops out of the machine if
pressed the wrong way, and the two sections don't
separate well. It's shoddily built, and I wouldn't
suggest it to anyone.
Try A Benriner
Spiral Vegetable Slicer
Spiral Vegetable Slicer, on
the other hand, is a joy to use. I bought it after
it was recommended to me by a raw food chef, and she
was completely correct in her praise.
It's built like a rock and offers four different
blades that allows for a selection of cuts for
salads, garnishes, pastas, etc. Clean up is quick
If you're interested in creating meals that are
aesthetically appealing as well as tasty, the
Benriner is a great tool that gets the job done.
