Spiralizer reviews

 

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.

 

Spiralizer Reviews

 

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.

Tips On Buying the Best Coffee Maker

tips on buying a coffee maker

 

 

If you are a big fan of coffee, it is certain that your morning starts with a cup of coffee. Many of us understand the meaning of quality coffee. Even if we grab a cup of coffee from the nearest café. But, what if you want to buy a coffee maker for your home.  There are some facts that you should consider before buying a coffee maker. Keep one thing in mind, though, everyone looks for different traits in a coffee machine.  Different features attract people differently. That’s why I am going to explain some “must know” facts so that you can buy a desired as well as a great coffee maker.

The Cost of the Machine

If you are a coffee fanatic and you have money to spend, then there is no doubt that you can have any kind of coffee maker. In some cases, the expensive coffee machine is a good choice.  If you do not have much money to spend on a coffee maker, then go for a reasonably priced machine. Some brands are very popular and have different models. You can research information about those brands on the internet.  Select the model that fulfils your budget. If you want to learn more about the cost factor, then check out www.CoffeeMakersList.com It is a great resource for finding great models.

The Popularity of the Machine

Before buying a coffee maker, check out the different types of makers that are available. Go for the best coffee maker brand for that particular type of coffee maker. Also, explore the different models for that brand.  Be sure to thoroughly research the model you have selected. Selecting a coffee maker should include cost, design, and the material.  Furthermore, do not forget to read reviews on different websites and forums about the model you are interested in. Asking reviewers/users questions about a particular coffee maker can help a lot.

Easy to Use

Some people believe that the more buttons and controls a machine has, the more superb the machine is.  But that is not the true. Unfortunately, controls can be confusing. If you are good mechanically, then you will be happy to have a coffee maker with great control options. Otherwise, do not purchase a coffee machine which is full of different buttons. The best coffee maker is one that makes you happy and is easy to use.
