Just What is a Spiralizer?


The first thing that may come to mind when you hear someone say the word “Spiralizer” is an add-on to the Spirograph that kids use to draw cool designs and shapes. But it’s nothing like that.

A Spiralizer is a tool that can turn your run-of-the-mill fresh vegetables into faux-noodles. Not only can this let you do something new and quirky with vegetables, but it may help you get more of your five-a-day into your or your loved ones’ diets.

To operate, you simply place your vegetable of choice into the device and crank the handle to turn it into noodles.

There are a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that can be put through the Spiralizer. The basic rules suggest that the vegetable cannot be hollow, seeded or have a tough core; it should have a diameter of at least 1.5-inches, and should be at least 2-inches long; and it must have a firm, solid flesh.

It can be tricky to get the right amount of fruits and vegetables into your diet, but this allows you to seamlessly mix it into your noodles or pasta, top it with a sauce and some protein, and enjoy your meal without even being consciously aware that you’re eating vegetables.
