See what our Customers and Reviewers say about The Very Healthy Spiral Slicer!
This is really a great alternative to pasta. I used a cucumber and a little carrot first time I tried this for a refreshing snack. I can eat a half to a whole cucumber and be satisfied for a snack, but I don't know if it was my mind playing tricks on me, but I was more full eating this is a pasta form.
Wow wow! Where has this little thing been all my life?I mean it, I am ultra happy with it and did not expect such a gadget to make cooking such fun! I had no idea, but now since I am eating less meat in my diet, this excellent invention will help me do just that.
Unlike most food processors, the Very Healthy Spiral Slicer doesn't create any waste from vegetables. The Spiral Slicer functions more like a kitchen knife where you should be able to use the entire vegetable in your recipe, with the majority of it being spiralized into noodle form. I am thoroughly satisfied with the simplicity and the results.
Much better quality than the one I had purchased previously and the fact that it comes with its own cleaning brush is a huge plus! I would recommend this to anyone looking to switch up their standard pasta dishes and incorporate a more healthy option to noodles!
Even better is this cute little cookbook they give you to go along with it. It shows you the best veggies to use in it, and how to use them, so you're not just wandering around your kitchen lost like that time you got separated from your parents at Disney when you were six. You've got a game plan. A certified way to make the most out of your dinner. If that's not enough to get you excited about eating your veggies, then I don't know what to tell you.
This is my first spiral slicer, so I was worried I wouldn't do it properly. And while it does take a bit if practice and futzing to get the hang of keeping the same pressure and speed on the veggies you're slicing, it's super easy with this tool. I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, so I was really glad to find that I didn't need to grip this tightly or apply heavy pressure
Works as advertised, now I can replace pasta with vegetables. I was able
to make a nice nutritious meal from vegetables that otherwise would not make a full meal like carrots, cucumber, and yellow squash, with some bacon and a tortilla and I made a great burrito.
There are many slicers out there now but you have to be careful of which brands you buy. I know that this brand has a good slicer. It works. The slicer can be cleaned by hand. It has a lifetime guarantee, so no need to feel worried if it breaks or has issues. They have good customer service.
The Very Healthy Spiral Vegetable Slicer is a cute item -- kind of like a combination of cooking and arts and crafts -- we couldn't stop thinking about different things we might create with it. Also, I will report that a six-year-old who "hates" vegetables, quite willingly sampled everything we made. (Victory is ours!!)
Pasta is one big weakness and I'll eat it by itself with butter and garlic or with any type of sauce. One of my favorite dishes is Shrimp Scampi and we all know how many calories that has it! I decided to try this out and make some tweaks to my recipe to make it healthier.I decided to use zucchini for my "noodles" as I love it anyway. It was so simple to use!
And it works! The first thing I tried when the box came was to "spagheticize" a small carrot. I stuck the carrot into the (luckily correct) end and, holding it against the blade, began to turn the slicer. Slowly, a narrow strand of orange "carrot spaghetti" was extruded from the slicer, growing longer and longer as I turned it. It's the sort of thing you might be able to do with a standard peeler or a very sharp knife if you had the world's steadiest hands (I don't) and inordinate patience (I really don't).
I have saw ads on products like this in the past. I honestly put off purchasing for fear they wouldn't work, or were hard to use or clean.Let me put all that to rest. This is the easiest thing ever! If you can hold something in both hands then you should be able to use this spiral slicer. I love the fact that there are two size options (one on each end). My daughter refers to it as kind of like sharpening a pencil. It really is like that. Just in a much larger form. If you have picky eaters then you should give this a try. My kids are finally eating veggies because they love to use this.
I love using spiralizers for making 'fun' meals! The Very Healthy Spiral Slicer, Vegetable Spiralizer is a great tool for the kitchen. Using a spiralizer is easy - put your vegetable in and turn. So far the spiralizer works well, easy to use, light weight and easy to store. Definitely a fun kitchen tool! to keep!
I’ve never used a Very Healthy Spiral Vegetable Slicer, and can honestly say I’ve never tried veggie noodles. This was definitely a first and not a last for our family. I went with an easy recipe to start, and I even made our usual whole wheat noodles just in case the kids didn't like it. Making the veggie noodles was SUPER easy, it's even quicker than boiling noodles!!
I really like to have some veggie pasta from time to time for a healthier life style. With this tool, you can make zucchini spaghetti, or "Zoodles" (aka. Zucchini Noodles). 🙂 I like the food it can make, as it is healthy and gluten-free, good for diet! The overall design is good and thoughtful. The product is sturdy and well-made.
We absolutely love this. It was ready when received and I just rinsed it off. There is so much you can make and with their recipe books they give you it makes it super easy to switch just a few things at a time and no one will notice they are eating healthier. I love the idea of adding different veggies to a variety of food for the grandkids. They will get a lot more vitamins and minerals and love what they are eating.
I LOVE pasta and I eat pasta all the time, so knowing that this would be a great pasta substitute was a really cool thing for me. This spiral slicer is very easy to use. Put the vegetable in and twist twist twist! It is a small size tool that allows to be stored on the shelf above where I prepare food. It seems to be very good quality, and I highly recommend it.
The trick to using this device successfully is to apply even pressure and speed when twisting, and to twist slowly enough that you're able to keep the vegetable consistently in contact with the blade. After a couple more tries I got the hang of it, and voila! Perfect zoodles!! I've since used my slicer with cucumber, carrots, butternut squash, potatoes and sweet potatoes - all with excellent results!
I have recently decided to start changing my diet as a slow progression to vegetarian. The problem was incorporating that into backpacking, hiking, camping, and bike riding. All of which we have gone back to doing now that our son is a toddler. I was told that a spiral slicer would be something that we could use to make a change of pace from traditional styles of slicing and cooking the veggies we choose. I looked around and this was the first one that seemed to fit what we needed.
I know ill be using this spiral slicer regularly, I've owned it now for about three weeks and I've already make several meals; best of all even my kids love the new dishes moms cooking up!I love that it's healthy and a great cool way to eat your vegetables. My zucchini noodles have completely replaced all my regular pasta noodles. And now my family's been only eating zoodles. This is such a wonderful gadget and has introduced so many fun new dinner ideas!
This is probably one of my favorite kitchen tools! I've never seen anything slice or cut like it. I first tried using a cucumber.... Sliced it perfectly! I love how neat the results were after it sliced my cucumber!
This little gadget is soo cool! It is a fun new way to eat veggies, or spice up your salads! You could even use it to make a fancy lemon or lime zest or garnish. It is also a fun way to get the kiddos to eat their veggies! Great if you are on a Paleo diet or trying to cut out carbs by making healthy "noodles".
I really do try to eat healthy but sometimes it can be so boring that I slip the other way. This product has given me a new outlook on my health. First of all it is made very well, not too big, not too small it is set up to serve its purpose. I like it, price is reasonable and product useful. The book with recipes is great as well. Nice product.
The Very Healthy Spiral Slicer by Varietyland is a must have item if you are on a Raw Food, Low Carb, Gluten Free, No Wheat, or Paleo Diet. I do not follow a particular diet, however, we use lots of vegetables when we cook and I make soups almost daily. This spiral slicer is such a great addition to any kitchen!! Healthy meals will never look the same. 🙂
I am happy that they are now providing an instruction booklet. Have not tried it out personally, but my 92 year old mother likes hers a lot. I am very happy with the friendly service we got from the company. Great way to get more veggies in the diet! Everyone should have one.
I've never liked vegetables when I was younger and now that I've chosen to eat healthier, so that I can lose weight and be healthy, I find ways to spruce up and make vegetables easier to eat. I've recently taken a liking to the crab and cucumber salad and I love how the Very Healthy Spiral Slicer helped me make the salad.
Eating healthy can sometimes be difficult, especially when it's so easy to eat prepackaged unhealthy food. However the reason I love the Very Healthy Spiral Slicer is that I can easily prepare a healthy meal that is fun & delicious.
Precision, that is one word the pops up first when I think about this specific slicer. I am extremely pleased with the results. It is a great tool to have in the kitchen . It does not clog easily, so it brings down time.
This Spiral Slicer is a great item to have in any kitchen! I would pay full price for it and use it all the time in my kitchen. It works wonders and even my kids were convinced to eat my thin sliced vegetables. I would buy this product again and am so excited to own it.
This cute, compact slicer is a nice tool to have in your kitchen. It comes with a free recipe e-book that has great ideas for use. This slicer gives your vegetables a different, fancy look -- it looks like veggie pasta. The kids love the way the vegetables looks-compared to chopping or slicing by hand.
Slices smoothly and easily. I LOVE making zucchini "spaghetti" my kids go crazy for it. I have been looking at these kinds of slicers for a long time. The slicer came with a brush to clean it with, the top part as a guide when you vegetable gets down and a little instruction booklet that came with a few recipes.
I love cooking with vegetables and was very excited to try this. It was easy and fun to use and loved the outcome of the spirals! It was very easy to use and the instructions were very helpful and informative. It's so quick and easy and I am now addicted.
So the first thing I did was use this to cut up carrot and zucchini. Amazing. Adds the texture and crunch to my salad without the added fats. I haven't gone all spaghetti on it yet lol.. But this is definitely a keeper.
The Very Healthy Spiral Vegetable Slicer is perfect as a carrot peeler, potato slicer, cucumber slicer, sweet potato cutter, radish cutter. I love this spiral slicer and have been using it for all my salads. They look amazing!
It's a nifty little contraption that works a lot like a pencil sharpener, to shred veggies into veggie noodles. I never really thought I would ever need one of these, but now that I have tried it, I don't think I could ever not have one."I use mine more for making salads."It's quick, it's convenient most most importantly, It's easy.
Overall i think this is a nifty kitchen accessory to have around, and i enjoy it very much. I even get a sense of fun out of using it. I would recommend this product to anybody looking for a simpler way to slice up there vegetables, at a point i think this would come in handy for anybody that makes there own meals.
The Very Healthy Spiral Vegetable Slicer turned out to be a tool that I used almost daily as my garden vegetables were picked. I loved trying out different vegetable in it, and watching the spirals come out. It was so easy to use, and the two different sized blades gave me great choices.
This item is small and easy to store! It cuts most any Veggie in noodle like cuts. We made a great Veggie noodle dish with it the first night that was to die for! Great for those who are trying to eat better and cut out all the pastas! Included is a nice little cleaning brush to reach those hard to clean areas, making cleaning it so easy!
We love our vegetable slicer. My kids can get in on the action - food preparation - and they are much more likely to eat their fruits and vegetables. This slicer even comes with 20 recipes to get us started as well as a cleaning brush for easy cleanup.
First of all - this item got to my doorstep so incredibly fast, wow. Second of all this item is SO convenient for me. My "pasta" turned out to be beautiful and really tasty with the help of the recipe book provided!
This product is very well crafted and looks like it could last a few years. It is made of high quality plastics to withstand the toughest of vegetables. It also comes with a brush for cleaning, which is super easy with a little soap and warm water.
I have wanted a vegetable spiralizer for a really long time but just couldn’t justify the expense for something I wasn’t sure that I would 100% love. Let me tell you. I love love love this, and would have spent way more than advertised!
I've never used a vegetable spiral slicer before and I was a little surprised about how small it was when we received it. However the size turned out to be perfect because it's big enough to do most vegetables and it's still small enough to sit it on it's side and store it in a utensil drawer which is a big plus for us as shelf space is at a premium.
When I first opened it, I made spiral carrots to add to salad. It was actually really easy to use. It's actually kind of fun making the veggie spirals and figuring out how to use them in your recipes. You can make veggie pasta, zucchini spaghetti, and also just plain julienes, there is 2 different slicers one at each end. One is a little bigger then the other. It also comes with 2 amazing ebooks.
It takes seconds to make fun vegetable slices...my son referred to them as spaghetti noodles and actually ate ALL of his veggies. My husband even wants me to start making more veggies this way.
I love my Spiral Slicer because I love pasta and I love vegetables and I am so happy I can now make my own vegetable pasta all in this Healthy Spiral Slicer which works wonders. Very easy to assemble and use. I like how small the product is and you can take it wherever you desire. I can even use it to spiral carrots to use in my salads as well.
My goal is to work toward a low carb diet so of course this means no pasta. I've been wanting one of these for some time but the ones I've seen were big and bulky which I did not have room in my kitchen for. I purchased this because it had two sizes and was compact. So far I've had positive experiences with using the spiral slicer with cucumber and zucchini.
Very easy to use, right out the box. This product was delivered quickly which made it fun to create a dinner recipe that evening. This helps you stay on track when trying to eat healthy yet it gives a meal an interesting twist to eating vegetables.
This slicer cuts the zuchini and other vegetables into perfect noodles on one side, and perfect little curly spirals on the other. It works best with bigger vegetables like zucchini but it also worked for thin carrots, which I like adding to salads. It makes creating pretty dishes so much easier, and saves me from attempting and failing to cut them evenly. The hand guard is also a good feature when the veggies get a bit on the smaller side. Overall this is a great slicer, fits easily in a drawer, and is very handy
I was pleasantly surprised at how well this slicer actually works. It has two size blades. To use the different sizes you just flip it to the other end, depending on the size you need. It comes with a cleaning brush to make cleanup easier. It is also dishwasher safe. It also includes a quick tip instruction manual and 10 spiral slicer mini-cookbook recipes. If you go online you can also download the 200 recipe ebook and other bonus items as well. It works great! 5 stars.
This spiral slicer works JUST AS WELL as one of the pricier ones! I wasn't sure about it when I first received it because the box was kind of damaged (which definitely could have been from the UPS guys) but after opening it and using it a few times, I can say that it's a really great product that I would definitely recommend!
I found this premium kitchen tool perfect for gluten free spaghetti and stir fry dinners. Just prepare your veggies by washing and peeling if necessary. Then you can easily insert the vegetable into the slicer and firmly push and twist to produce long vegetable strands. Easy Peasy!
My daughter is a new vegetarian. I got her one of these to help prepare her meals. Once I saw her using it and having so much fun I had to get one.This is a great spiral slicer. It cuts the veggies into fun spiral noodle looking shapes. It is wonderful that it comes with a brush. My only complaint would have been how difficult it is to clean but with the brush it is easy! This worked well and worked quickly.
This works great I got this item because I recently became vegan and I don't want to rely on eating a lot of pasta with this slicer I can make noodles out of vegies. I also have used it for my salads. it work great and it is very easy to clean, it came with a handy little brush to get down inside of it. It also came with a recipe book with some tasty looking recipes that I will be trying in the future. This is a great product easy to use and I would recommend purchasing.
Really love this handy little tool. Made veggies more appealing to my six year old. They are now fun, and he looks forward to having them on his plate! I have only used this on a few things so far, but I am looking forward to using it on a lot of things. This product is so easy to use and very simple to clean. My 12 year old uses it often, maybe more than I have.
I love it! I especially love that I can have sweet potatoes cooked/sauteèd and ready in minutes as opposed to having to wait over an hour for them to bake. Plus this way is prettier. If you have a picky eater, making the veggies fun and noodly might help get more vegetables in.
I love the how convenience of this little gadget is. I don't have to lug out my kitchenaid mixer and attach the attachment. Less fuss.
I love kitchen helpers, and this one not only helps shred vegetables into spirals, it's a fun way to make a salad with my grandchildren.
Very easy to use. This spiral slicer works great! You can slice any vegetable! In the box is the slicer, cap, scrubber, as well as a cook book and a link to a free e-cook book. You'll enjoy using this
This slicer is really cool! It is definitely a kitchen essential for those who use alot of vegetables!
The tool features two blades for different thickness options, can be used straight out of the box, and does not require batteries to operate. A must have in the kitchen.
My family loves pasta and vegetables. This is a great idea to make a vegetables pasta in one, a healthy pasta that perfect for diet.
Our favorite new kitchen tool. This spiral slicer has worked perfectly on a number of vegetables and fruits. Rather than pasta, a quick sauce over spiralized zucchini has made a delicious and nutritious lunch.
This is a great product that allows you to make all the spiral veggies you have always wanted! I love how easy it is to use, and how it comes with a brush for cleaning. It makes our dinnertime simple and quick!
This is a must for anyone looking to liven up their dishes with colorful veggies. This product makes your veggies perfect for adding to stir fry, salads, and more.
I have to say I LOVE THIS THING!!!! This works great for making Vegetable Spaghetti, Salads, and makes munching on fresh veggies fun. My GrandChildren really love the "Veggy Strings" that they made "All by myself"!
I was concerned it might be hard to clean, there are lots of nooks and crannies, but it rinses out really well (as long as you don't let it sit and harden for a long time after using). The brush that is included helps whisk away any veg pieces. I love this product. Would definitely recommend.
When I first saw The Very Healthy Spiral Slicer, it looked like a very interesting kitchen tool; I was wondering if it needs much hand work to make all those funny spiral noodles, since it does not require electricity to work. To my surprise when I tried to use it to make zucchini noodles it was very easy and fast.
I was a bit weary at first because I have seen my share of "so called" kitchen items which don't work and just end up being a waste of money, but this is NOT the case here - this slicer actually works extremely well. Pop your chosen veggie in and it comes out perfectly - just the way you want it.
I've made two dishes from the included recipe book so far (adjusted amounts to be for 2), one with a soft vegetable (cucumber) and one with a hard vegetable (carrot). Both resulted in surprisingly delicious and refreshing dishes that no other tools in my kitchen are capable of making. I try to eat healthy, and will slice a few cucumbers into my sandwich maybe, but today I ate almost half a cucumber in one meal!
This contraption is pretty simple to use and the cap keeps you from slicing your fingers off. There is a bout a couple inches of veggie stump left over when you are done but i just slice it and saute it with the rest of the "noodles" and eat it.
Like the space saving style and clean cuts. Works Great! We had so many zucchinis we couldn't figure out what to do with and this product solves the problem for us.Now we can spiral them and use them on salads or as a noodle substitute.
