This is my first Spiralizer. I was excited when I received the product. Unfortunately, it had to be put together. Putting items together can be overwhelming for me at times. But I had this baby assembled within 5 minutes.
The next step was figuring out what veggie to use. I decided to use a cucumber since I had a few on hand. My biggest struggle was figuring what end to put on the base to spiralize. Rather than use the entire cuke, I cut it in half. It left me wondering what end was up. I finally realized that I needed to put the small end on the bottom and the larger end pointing toward the top.
The Spiralizer left me with a beautiful ribbon of spiralized cucumbers. The trick is to use firm veggies or fruits and to cut off both ends. The flat end of the fruit or vegetable must attach to the slicer; otherwise, the grabber won’t hold it. They spiralizer recommends English cucumbers. Guess what I will be adding to my summer garden?
First, lift the handle on the spiralizer and place your fruit or vegetable beneath it. Process the fruit or vegetable by turning the handle. The plastic tray will catch your spiralized product. I can’t wait to try other fruits and vegetables. The spiralizer is great for garnishes, onion rings, spaghetti strands and more. I love infused water, so spiralized fruits and veggies will look beautiful in my carafe. My mouth is watering for a fresh cucumber salad this summer too. Some of the fruit and vegetables recommended are: potatoes, sweet potatoes, zucchinis, cukes, apples, and carrots.
The box contains a small brush for cleaning. It’s great for cleaning the blades and getting into corners of the spiralizer. I rinsed with hot, soapy water. Be care while cleaning, the blades are sharp. Since I don’t have room on my counter for another product, I had to store the unit back in the box. Removing the handle made it easy to store back in the box.
Also, the unit has suction cups on the bottom. They help keep the spiralizer stable while your turning the handle to spiralize your veggies/fruit. I have one con from this Spiralizer review, I wish there was a storage cover for the blades when not in use.
The system is easy to wash. I simply rinsed and than hand washed in soapy water. Last, I recommend Brieftons Vertico Spiralizer. Head over and make a purchase today. You may also like Brieftons Chopper.
