In these best spiral vegetable slicer reviews, you can find five products under $35 that give you lovely zucchini strings with a minimum of fuss. They are all made of hard-wearing construction to take the knocks that regular use will give them and have the sharp blades necessary to do the job. Some are countertop gadgets, but there are also two handheld ones for those chefs who are always on the go.
This large spiralizer is capable of taking on veggies up to 6.5cm in diameter (the normal-sized ones can only accommodate ones with diameters 2cm less than that figure). It also comes with four 7-centimeter-long blades for 3mm, 5mm, 10mm and 70mm noodle widths. The set includes the finger-guard cap and a manual.
- Blades are removable for easy maintenance
- Has less waste than most other spiralizers
- Large enough for bigger veggies but still compact
- Finger guard does not work very well at holding smaller vegetables
This spiralizer costs a little more than some other popular ones (it’s about $30), but it does return great value in exchange for that small uptick in price. First, there’s the size: when you’re working with bigger blades, you can not only take on bigger vegetables but also dramatically reduce the time necessary for cutting them. Then there are the blade options. A lot of other spiralizers do not really give you anything near this number. The finger guard design also tends to leave smaller “butts” than other ones. You’ll probably wrestle with the cap if you ever have to work small vegetables like beets, but it’s still a great buy.
Made of high-quality ABS plastic fitted with stainless steel blades, the Kitchen Active Spiralizer is designed to cut vegetables into noodles with a simple twist action. It comes with a finger-guard cap and two blades—one set on either cone of “the hourglass” form. It is also BPA-free and comes with the cleaning brush for easy maintenance.
- Very cheap
- Comes with two blades
- Relatively easy to clean
- Not easy to use with short vegetables
This is a much cheaper spiralizer than the previous handheld one on this list at $8. In exchange, it only has two noodle thickness options (which means 2 blades), is a little bit less premium in the feel of its plastic, and is a little bit smaller. If you can live with all of those things as well as the non-removable blades, this is actually still a pretty nice spiral slicer. Considering you get it for less than 10 bucks, it’s far from being a bad bargain and will suit many a home cook.
This countertop spiralizer comes with four interchangeable blades: a slicer, a fine julienne blade, a course julienne blade, and a grater/shredder. It can be used to make more than spiral noodles, as it can create rings, chip cuts, and twists. It also comes with a citrus juicer attachment and the measuring bowl collecting the cuts can be used to store the blades as well as the aforementioned attachment. The base also has suction cups for stability.
- Versatile due to multiple blade options
- Very sturdy
- The measuring bowl could be larger
This is a fantastic countertop spiralizer at only $34. Considering it comes with a juicer attachment as well as four rather versatile blade options, you are more than getting your money’s worth. The gadget also feels suitably durable for regular or even daily usage. The only problem with it is that the measuring cup that collects the slices is a bit on the small side—you may find yourself emptying it fairly regularly if you are working with particularly large vegetables.
This countertop spiralizer comes with three blade options: thin, thick, and flat ribbon blades. It has suction cups at the bottom to keep it from wiggling when in use. It can also be taken apart for easier storage.
- Easy to put together and disassemble
- three blade options
- Suction cups at the base help with keeping it steady
- Blade occasionally gets clogged
This is a bit cheaper (about $23) than the preceding countertop spiral slicer, but it has fewer blade options, no measuring cup, and no juicer attachment. Even without those accoutrements, though, this Veggetti model is still a very nice buy. It even comes with little compartments at the sides that you can use to store spare blades. All in all, it’s still a great spiral slicer of the tabletop type if you don’t need the extra things the Mueller model has.
This version of Paderno’s spiralizer comes with three blade attachment options: a 1/8-inch spaced blade, a ¼-inch spaced blade, and a straight blade for ribbon cuts. It is made of impact-resistant, BPA-free plastic and has a side-located storage compartment for two of the blades. The base has suctioned feet, too.
- Very easy to assemble and disassemble
- Easy to clean
- 3 blade options
- Not as easy to use for lefties
This is clearly something designed for the right-handed, so it does take a bit of practice to get used to it if you’re a lefty. Despite that, it’s still a great spiralizer, with a fantastic self-contained storage design (you really have to read the manual to get it, though) and an easy-to-use mechanism. It also only costs $33.
The best buy if you prefer the countertop ones is the Mueller, just because it offers so much. In addition to four blades, it also gives you a juicer, and allows you to use a gravity-aided downward pushing motion instead of a sideways one. This makes it much easier to get more of the veggies cut than with the other two models.
As for the handheld versions, the Brieftons is the better product—it also offers more and is built better, like the Mueller, even if it costs a little more as well.
