Today I’m reviewing the spiralizer, here is a demonstration of how you can turn zucchini into “spaghetti” which I think is a wonderful substitution for real spaghetti.
My oldest son was my videographer, he did a great job holding the camera and helping with the commentary.
We have made spiralized beets, carrots, squash, cucumbers, and onions with our spiralizer.
And here is how we had our dinner:

This was great, Starlene! Your son did an awesome job. And now I want one!!! Our 10th anniversary is coming up in September and I may just ask DH for it. I was going to get a watch but it turns out my old one is working fine after all so the Spiralizer might be it!! (P.S. smile!!)
Great video, tell your son he did an awesome job with the camera. I have to tell you that a couple of months ago on the yahoo group you posted about the spiralizer and I immediately put it on my wish list at amazon. I got it a few weeks ago and have really been loving it. It is really amazing how just cutting our familiar veggies into these cool shapes is like having a whole new food.
Starlene, can you tell me what it’s like to clean? We have really been enjoying zucchini pasta with meat sauce lately but I’ve just been grating them with a hand grater. My food processor works pretty well but I really don’t like cleaning my food processor. Those long noodles that you made look great so I am tempted. Although I’d have to find space for it in my already very full kitchen…
One more question if you don’t mind. Do you happen to know when Gut and Physiology Syndrome is supposed to be released? I thought I remembered NCM mentioning the release date on your podcast with her. (Maybe not, but thought I’d ask.) My father-in-law has an autoimmune disease and my husband and I really want him to at least consider the GAPS diet. We thought of buying him the Gut and Psychology book but it’s not exactly cheap and I think the newer book would be a better fit since he doesn’t think he has psychological problems or digestive issues. (Ha! Not sure if I agree with him on those because what we think is “normal” is so skewed because of all the sick people.)
Great job! I wondered how long the noodles were. I was thinking about getting the spiralizer after the last discussion on yahoo, but then remembered I have an old Duncan Hines vegetable shredder/grater/stringer/etc. I tried it last night and the zuchinni came out short but in kind of the same shape as spaghetti. Thanks for posting this – now I can show my family and they can choose.
I just watched your video and it was wonderful! Tell your son he did an awesome job taping for you. I also want to thank you for taking the time to respond to all of us on the GAPShelp website. It isn’t often that you find someone so caring about others. You are an inspiration to all of us! I just love kitchen gadgets. We have a raised bed garden this year and just this week I have gotten six zucchini. To me it looks like it would be easier to use the spiralizer to make spaghetti out of a zucchini than to bake a spaghetti squash and make it that way. Thanks again!
I got one of these a few weeks ago. I love it and how simple it is to work! One thing I figured out is that I only need to cut the end off one end of the zucchini. Then I use the intact end against the tines, that way that little bit at the end that doesn’t get spiralized is just the bit I would have cut off anyhow.
[…] Here you can see it bubbling away. Notice how it isn’t quite covered by the liquid. We served this over Zucchini noodles made with my spiralizer. This blog post has a video that demonstrates it. GAPS Diet Journey: The Spiralizer […]
