Vegetable Spaghetti - Microplane Spiral Cutter Review

Let me tell you about this new Microplane Spiral Cutter - it's easy to use and easy to clean too. This spiral cutter allows you to make spiral cuts out of fresh vegetables. So yes, you can now make your veg look all  posh!

Courgettes, carrots, cucumber all work well and also I'm thinking beetroot would be good too although I haven't tried it - could be a bit messy?!   To use the spiral cutter, just hold what ever it is you're cutting at a slight angle making sure the whole side of the vegetable touches the blade and twist.

The two different size barrels are for different size veg - the larger one being perfect for cucumber and the smaller for carrots.

The blades are really sharp and slice through vegetables with ease.  I have to say I couldn't get the spirals quite as long as I'd have perhaps liked without some breaking - probably just me not getting the hang of it.  Don't get me wrong the spirals still looked good and it's great for stir-fries, creating garnishes or to make a more interesting side salad a bit different from the norm.    

The soft-grip exterior makes it comfortable to hold and easy to use and fits easily in your hand and it's also dishwasher safe.

With a RRP of £9.95 I think this is a reasonable price.

  1. Looks interesting Jan Spiral veggies are definitely in fashion in the food world at the moment and at least this is a compact tool to make them.

  2. I do like the idea of these but decided that I could just use ribbons made using the mandolin, rather than get another one-use gadget. I'm such a gadget-magnet! Spirals are so pretty though.

  3. I've been curious about getting a spiraliser for ages, this one looks much less complicated than other ones I've seen!!

  4. A nice compact gadget that won't take up too much space in your cupboard or drawer - a good price too:-)

  5. Ah, a neat and compact little device. Mine is more of a counter top affair, so this one is quite a space saver, although probably a little more labour intensive.
