If you’ve ever gone overboard in the produce section while grocery shopping, buying vegetables that you fully intend on using in recipes, I get it — we’ve all been there. Life got busy, and that produce you wanted to try in a new recipe went bad before you could use it.
But one of the easiest solutions to making sure you use your entire zucchini or spaghetti squash before it goes bad is to use a spiralizer to create vegetable “noodles” or “fries” as either the main staple for a quick meal or a garnish on a salad.
While Amazon has several different models of spiralizers, there’s one in particular that stands out. With close to 10,000 five-star reviews, the original vegetable slicer, Spiralizer, is a customer-favorite kitchen essential for a reason.
With Spiralizer’s third-generation model, you can spiralize hard vegetables like potatoes, squash, cucumbers, zucchini or turnips easier than ever. The Spiralizer comes with five different Japanese stainless steel cutting blades that slice vegetables into five different thicknesses: angel hair, fine shredding, coarse shredding, curly fries and flat blade. In under a minute, with a few turns of the handle, you’ll have lovely vegetable “noodles” or slices to add to any meal.
Plus, you don’t have to fuss with any extra mess while spiralizing your veggies either. The Spiralizer can fit into a dishwasher, or you can easily hand wash it with soap and water.
Without the hassle of slicing, dicing or chopping, weeknight dinner ideas just got easier and more fun. Try it for yourself below — it’s less than $25 on Amazon right now.
