How To Prepare Zoodles

Spiralizer – I’ve been using my Paderno World Cuisine Spiralizer for nearly 3 years now, and I absolutely love it! The one I have costs around $25 and is well worth it, as I haven’t had a single issue with it. It comes with 3 different blade attachments to make different zoodle shapes, from thin or thick spaghetti “noodles,” to wide fettuccine-type noodles. This creates very long zoodles, which can easily be cut so they’re shorter, if you prefer.

My Opinion: Using a spiralizer to make zoodles is by far my favorite method!

Julienne Peeler – A julienne peeler is a great option for saving space, as it’s not much larger than a regular vegetable peeler. It also creates short zoodles, which are only as long as the zucchini.

In conclusion, while a julienne peeler won’t produce lengthy

Hand Held Spiralizer – I haven’t actually used a hand held spiralizer myself, but I have friends who use it regularly and like it.

In conclusion, I think that the only real drawback is that some larger zucchini won’t fit, but smaller zucchini should work.

Vegetable Peeler – A regular vegetable peeler will create thin, wide zoodles, which creates more of a fettuccine type “noodle.”

My Verdict – A vegetable peeler works great in a pinch, and I’ve even used it to create the zucchini noodles for my Beef Stroganoff!

Can You Cut Zucchini Noodles Ahead Of Time

The Paderno World Cuisine Spiralizer is far and away my favorite tool. It creates curls of your favorite vegetables, literally in seconds. It’s the fastest tool of the bunch and requires the least amount of strength or effort (with suction cup feet to keep it in place). You simply cut off the ends of a zucchini, place it next to the blade and spin. In less than 8 seconds you’ll have spiral sliced the entire zucchini.

Although I am aware that these reviews are for zucchini noodles, consider slicing up other veggies as well. Carrots, sweet potato, apples, pears…the list is endless!.

With this spiralizer’s simple blade replacement system, you can make your favorite carrot pasta, curly sweet potato fries, or apple chips. Yes, it’s bigger than some of the other options, but considering how I often I use it the pros far outweigh the cons – so it’s still my #1 favorite.

PROS: Lightweight, strong, quick, affordable, durable, and provides a variety of blades and slicing options

CONS: will require more storage space than other options.
