6 Reasons to Get a Spiral Vegetable Slicer

Hot Product:  World Cuisine Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer

 

OK, here is a really cool kitchen gadget that has literally shot up in the Amazon popularity rankings.  It’s a spiral food slicer!  Now why would anyone want a spiral food slicer, you may ask?  Well, besides the fact that it’s just plain fun…

 

#1- Create impressive-looking salads

Since the blades are able to cut 3 different sizes (small spaghetti-sized, larger spaghetti sized, and a ribbon cut) you can mix and match for a pleasing multi-colored work of art on a plate.  People have had good success cutting zucchini, cucumbers, radishes, carrots, apples, pears, sweet potatoes, onions, squash and beets.  What a great way to make use of all the amazing produce you can find at the farmer’s market!
 

#2 – Replace pasta with veggies 

If you are trying to cut back on your carbs, or if you just want to try something different, this machine can replicate either spaghetti or fettuccine using vegetables like zucchini, squash and sweet potatoes.  Just add some warm tomato (or any other type of pasta) sauce to some spiral-cut zucchini, and you will love it!  Some people have used the thicker blade to make an all-veggie lasagna.  

 

#3 – Make curly fries 

OK, this may not be the healthiest option, but it might be one of the tastiest!

 

 #4 – Get your kids to eat their fruits and veggies

The fun-factor aside, some kids are just more likely to eat these appealing little strands.  Add them to their school lunches or use as a healthy snack disguised as a “treat”. 

 

 #5 – Add a little style to your plate

Using this machine can enhance your presentation of other foods, like soup and steak.  Adding a burst of color here and there is really easy.

 

 #6 – Very convenient for “Raw food” eaters

People who eat Raw food are committed to consuming mostly uncooked, usually organic food, for a variety of reasons (see Wikipedia.org for more information).  There are a multitude of ways to prepare Raw food, but all that manual slicing and dicing might start to wear thin after a while.  This machine will help you cut your prep time, as well as your food.  Slicing raw food into small strands can definitely help with digestion too.

 

So, there you are.  Six reasons to consider a spiral vegetable slicer.  So now it’s up to you to decide if you see one in your future.
