This $23 Spiralizer Has More than 10,000 Five-Star Reviews on Amazon
Spend enough time reading product reviews on Amazon and you’ll learn two key things. First, reviewers are (rightfully!) pretty harsh! Second, an average that’s above 4.5 stars is incredibly hard to reach. So when something hits that and has lots of positive reviews, we take notice. And that’s what led us to notice the Spiralizer 5-Blade Vegetable Slicer.
Buy: Spiralizer 5-Blade Vegetable Slicer, $23
Surely, you’ve heard of spiralized veggies before, but you might not have realized that Spiralizer is technically a brand name. (Like Microplane and Band-Aid!) It is! And, not surprisingly, it’s the bestselling zoodle-making device on all of Amazon. It has a 4.6-star rating and more than 10,300 five-star reviews.
We actually have some first-hand experience with this gadget and agree with these Amazon shoppers. We love that it comes with lots of blades (five!) to make different cuts and works with a handful of veggies (zucchini, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, apples, and more). The crank is easy to turn and makes quick work of getting through all your produce. It suction-cups to your counters while you work, can go in the dishwasher, and stores fairly compactly.
Let’s take a look at some of those five-star reviews.
“I wasn’t expecting this to be as nice as a spiralizer as it is for the price.”
“I was excited, but really skeptical of the Spiralizer. I really wanted it to work, but have been burned over the years from other companies selling produce slicers. I am newly vegan, so I wanted something to make noodles from vegetables. I gotta say, it’s just as great as it advertises! It made beautiful noodles from my squash. It’s nice and sturdy, and super easy to clean. LOVE IT! Super easy to use, too. Will be using this all the time. I highly recommend it. I sent a message to customer service to let them know how much I loved the product, and they sent back very nice and personal reply. Great experience overall!”
“This is awesome! I use it all the time! Mostly for making zucchini noodles and creating raw bowls, but it has so many different ways it can be used. Tips: Clean right after use because, if you don’t, the dried veg can get pretty stuck in there and can be difficult to get out; And those blades are SHARP, so don’t go sticking your fingers in there trying to free a piece of vegetable, as you will get sliced! This might look like a simple little kitchen tool, a little dinky, but it gets the job done exceptionally well and that’s really what I was after. Several friends of mine have purchased this following my rave reviews and they all love it too!”
