Whether you’re a seasoned spiralizer pro or a complete newbie, we’ve got the inside scoop on this kitchen gadget that’s taking the culinary world by storm.

Product Overview – OXO Spiralizer

Let’s kick things off by talking about the star of the show – the OXO Spiralizer. This nifty gadget is designed with user-friendliness in mind. Its sleek and minimalistic design won’t take up valuable kitchen real estate, making it perfect for those with limited countertop space (kudos, OXO).

The spiralizer comes with multiple blades that are like the superheroes of the kitchen. Seriously, you can go from thin noodles to wide ribbons with just a twist (pun intended). Switching blades is a breeze, and the secure grip ensures that even the slipperiest of veggies stay put.

Key Features – OXO Spiralizer

  • Create uniform spirals from fruits and vegetables. Use it for curly fries, salads, garnishes, and more. 
  • BPA free.
  • Three stainless steel blades. Used to create various cuts, such as a spaghetti cut.
  • The removable blade box keeps blades clean and safe when not in use. They are placed on board for easy storage. 
  • A food holder with sharp teeth holds food securely while spiralizing and is dishwasher-safe.
  • Once the fruit or vegetable is placed, you spiralize by rotating the handle. The side handle advances fruits and vegetables through blades and folds up for compact storage.

Performance & Usability

Watching my vegetables get spiralized is mesmerizing! I’ve always wanted to try making ‘zoodles’ (zucchini noodles). The first dish I made, however, was a plate of sweet potato noodles since that was what I had on hand when this got delivered. It churned out noodles that were of the perfect thickness (see photos). I also used the OXO Spiralizer to make oven-baked shoestring fries! It’s so delicious, simple, and healthy.

I do have 2 issues, albeit minor. One is with the suction. It works ok, but it does lose suction, causing me to constantly readjust its spiraler. The other is with the wastage. There is a lot of wasted food. I hate throwing out food, so I usually save it and freeze it until I have enough to make soup.
