Going Spiral

ZoodlesWhat It Is: Spiralizers are all the rage these days. The reason? They can take your everyday veggies and turn them into lean little noodles that can easily be swapped out for any pasta, creating a low-carb, lip-smacking option to your favourite Italian dishes. The Zoodle Slicer is one of the best out there, in part because it’s so simple to use. Just insert your veggie of choice and turn it like you would a pencil sharpener. The Original Zoodle Slicer can actually make two different sizes of ‘noodles’ depending on your dish, plus this kit comes with a cookbook to get you started.

Who It’s For: Your gluten-free friend, as a new way to enjoy ‘pasta’. Your paleo or Whole 30-experimenting sibling, to curb their pasta cravings. Your foodie parents, to add to their kitchen gadget collection.

What It Costs: $51. I’ll note there are other brands that offer cheaper options if you want to just ‘try’ this whole thing out.

Where It’s At: I spotted the Original Zoodle Slicer in Canada at Amazon.ca

    Nice, we would love it for us or a gift.

  2. Heather Swanson says:

    I don’t think I would use it

  3. mcmc says:

    I would probably use it for the first while and then it would be in the back of the drawer unused.

  4. Anne Derkat says:

    I would love to have one of these.

    I love kitchen gadgets, so I would have to have one of these spiralizers! I would also get one for my vegan daughter.

  6. Lindsey says:

    I would love to try this out!

    I think my kids would eat more veggies if it was cut like this.

  8. I love it. I would definitely buy one.

  9. kiraali says:

    It could be a good gift, for sure

  10. Rhonda B. says:

    I know someone who would like to see this under the Christmas tree.

  11. Joan G. says:

    I really don’t need another gadget to store in the back of my cupboards.

    This would add a lot of different texture to salads.

    I think that this would be a great gift and my granddughter would love to use it!

  14. Kerri says:

    Love this. I was looking for one so thank you!

  15. Susan says:

    I’ve been waiting for them to come down in price in order to give one a try and see if I will consistently use it. Think it is a great idea to swap out vegetables for pasta — or even reduce the amount of pasta with some vegetables.

  16. Christine Holliday says:

    I’ve been wanting one of these for a while now, maybe I’ll win one! HA!

  17. Primula Beauty, Health and Wellness says:

    I have one and love it, me and the kids use it all the time. Its helped replace pasta and is great for salads.

  18. cookie3 says:

    this is a perfect gift for my 2 nieces who both have to eat gluten free

  19. Kelly H says:

    i really like this idea.. even though i probably wouldn’t use it. i like my carbs

  20. Susan T. says:

    I have one of the cheaper versions of these and it’s been quite handy. I used it a few days ago to make carrot strings for hot and sour soup. I think a lot of veggie lovers would be happy to get this as a gift!

  21. Victoria Ess says:

    I want one of these so badly!
