WHY BUY A SPIRALIZER?

An easy way to slice your veg and fruit to add them to a dinner or dessert, a spiralizer is a kitchen gadget that is more of a luxury than a necessity. However, without one it's pretty much impossible to spiralize anything. We've found some recipes for spiralizer virgins to try:

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A SPIRALIZER

Blades

If you're after a basic spiralizer to make noodles or zoodles, then you won't need to worry about having more than one blade. However, if you're thinking of experimenting with your spiralizer, it's worth getting a one that has all sorts of blades to choose from so you can have ultra thin zoodles or super thick ones, or even ribbons.

Dishwasher safe?

Spiralizers can be a nightmare to clean, because they comprise of several parts. Opt for one which is dishwasher-friendly to make your life easier.

Electric or manual?

Spiralizers are either electric or manual, the former being the easier to use, but the latter being easier to fit larger fruit and veg in (such as apples and butternut squash). With most electric spiralizers, you may have to cut your fruit and veg in half first.

Thanks to electric spiralizers, it has never been easier to join the spiralizing trend. The electric Spiralizer Express from Morphy Richards is extremely quick and easy to use. It features one speed setting, so you simply pop your veg in the tube to be spiralized; it also comes with two blades, one for spaghetti and one for wider ribbons. Once you're finished, the machine has removable parts that are easy to clean and dishwasher safe, and for those who don't want it on display, it's easy to store as all parts can be placed inside the unit and the power lead retracts into the base. Our only complaint is that larger veg such as butternut squash and some apples may not fit in the tube, so they'll need to be cut beforehand, but all in all, this is the best electric spiralizer you can buy.

OXO Good Grips Handheld Spiralizer

4. OXO Good Grips Handheld Spiralizer

A handheld spiralizer that can fit anywhere in your kitchen

Dishwasher safe?: Yes

Left or right-handed: Both
Reasons to buy
+Less to wash up+Ideal for those looking for something to easily store+No-fuss
Reasons to avoid
-Harder work than other ones-Can't fit all veg in without cutting it

Small enough to fit in a drawer, yet still more than capable of doing a good job, this handheld spiralizer is the best option for those who don't have much room in their kitchen. Essentially, it does the same job as all the other spiralizers, it just requires more work on your behalf. It's ideal for making smaller quantities, or for those who live on their own; to use you simply attach your courgette, carrot or cucumber to the blade then twist and turn the grip handle. Once you're done, there'll be little washing up to do too, as the unit itself is smaller than most. The best handheld spiralizer on the market, we think.
