Whether you’re looking for low carb, vegan or vegetarian meal ideas, or just exploring for ways to spice up your boring dinners, spiral vegetable slicers will deliver a new way to prepare your veggies. One of the most common dishes they can be used for are with zucchini to create a healthy, low carb pasta alternative. They work by spinning veggies through a series of blades to slice up curly noodles or ribbons.
Spiral vegetable slicers come in two varieties: handheld spinners and larger countertop models. Both will get the job done, but the countertop ones will typically have more versatile options, while the handheld ones will be more convenient and portable. Some key features you will want to look out for are ease of use, versatile options and how easy it is to clean. Extra blade types give you the option for different styles and sizes of cuts, and removable, dishwasher safe parts are always important for kitchen hygiene.
