My favorite vegetable spiralzer! Low Carb "noodles" or "pasta" made EASY with zucchini




Although spiralizers have been around for ages, I've always wanted one, but it was never really in the budget and not a priority. A couple months ago, after not really being happy with any of the low carb pasta options 'out there' as my favorite go-to; I decided it was time to invest in a spiralizer.

I didn't have a specific kind in mind I wanted, but I knew a couple I didn't want as I had used them at friends and family's homes.  I didn't want it to be bulky or have a lot of pieces or be difficult to get clean.  I figured I would probably end up getting a little hand held version that you twist.  It would be simple and small and easy and cheap. (I honestly thought I'd just pick up one like this:  Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Slicer.)

However, after spending WAY too much time in the small kitchen accessory aisle and over thinking everything, I finally decided on this one:  The OXO Good Grips 3-Blade Spiralizer with Strong Hold Suction.

  • The three blades are the exact cuts I want/need
  • The suction on the bottom holds it in place for EASY use
  • It's super easy to clean: I literally just run it under the tap and let set for a few minutes to dry
  • It's no nonsense, easy to use and no 'fluff' with things that are either stupid, added needlessly or hard to figure out
  • Everything STORES easily!  The blades come in a little plastic box that stores inside the machine
  • No learning curve. Easy to use and figure out right out of the box.
  • Perfect cuts and sharp blades.


Right out of the box...

A lousy photo taken quickly on my phone... but shows my first use. So quick and easy.
I've used it numerous times since then and it's still just as perfect and easy as ever.
You can see the vegetable plugs that are left after spiralizing.  
You can still cut them up and add them to your dish.  There is no waste.

  1. how solid is the handle? My daughter bought me one that fell apart the first time I used it. Good blades, good suction, just terrible handle ...

    1. That's surprising! I love the handle. It pops off and on for storage but it 'pops' into place and it's got a good 'grip' when it's on.

      Did she use it for a hard vegetable though? I've heard sweet potatoes can be rough on them... I hate sweet potatoes so I don't use them! (LOL). But I've used it on zucchini, onions, carrots & cucumbers so far.

      My DD has the Pampered Chef version and I do not like that one at all. I really do love this one! :)

  2. she never used it, got it for me for mother's day. :) I only used it on zucchini - loved the noodles, but the handle literally fell apart. :( I'll have to try this one...
