Here we will review the best spiralizers that are currently available in the UK market place. If you are familiar with what these do then happy days, but if you are not sure, or have not seen one in action, then check out the video below.
These are for sure the latest and hottest kitchen gadget to arrive in the UK market for some time. They are affordable, useful and we think a great little gadget to have in your kitchen. They come in slightly different styles and models.
In fact there are three different types which are:
- Vertical Hold
- Horizontal Hold
This simply means that the method in which they are used differs slightly. The end result is however basically the same.
The handheld ones are popular and are the cheapest. They do have limitations though as you have to apply a lot of manual work. They are also limited as they can only cut certain sizes of vegetables and fruits.
If you think of a how a simple pencil sharpener works, then you will know how these work. If nothing else they are super fun to use.
In the video below, you will see this handheld model, which as you will see is simple to use and creates some pretty amazing shapes for your vegetables.
The video immediately below shows a horizontal one in action and you will see it can be used on much bigger vegetables, and it also requires very little effort. This video shows you exactly how to use a spiralizer and come up with some great looking food.
Typically they the veg is pushed onto a metal ring and then the other end is wound in slowly to slice and make spirals from the vegetables. These work ok, but they can also be tricky to work. If you don't get the knack correct, then they can get frustrating to use.
This is because the vegetables can move out of place and you spend more time sorting that out then anything else.
You will be left with the centre of your vegetables which is a little wasteful in my opinion, but not the end of the world. If you like noodles these are really great. You can also make ribbons and after that the only limit is your imagination.
Vertical Hold Spiralizers
Wethink these are the best although the lady in the video would disagree. It might have helped if she had used the right attachments and taken a little more care. In the video below you can see a comparison of all of them.
The vertical ones just use a downward pressure and for me that works the best. All of them are pretty good to be honest and all of them work well and leave you with much the same result.
