4. With the KitchenAid Spiralizer

What Can I Use To Make Zucchini Noodles

If you own a KitchenAid stand mixer, you probably already know about all of the different attachments that are available. These attachments are expensive, but they connect to the mixer’s power hub to become automated. Indeed, KitchenAid offers a spiralizer attachment, as you might have predicted.

The Kitchenaid spiralizer comes in a nice storage box (though it’s quite large) and provides the most blade options, with 7 blades (including a peeler). But even with all these blade options I found that I still gravitated toward the 3 basic blades – the same ones which are included with the Paderno Spiralizer.

Another thing to keep in mind is that this tool has a fixed width due to its automated nature. This implies that big zucchini must be sliced in half and spiralized separately for each half.

This is a fantastic choice if you already own a KitchenAid and enjoy using attachments. However, the price by itself will most likely be the largest disincentive for everyone else.

PROS: includes a peeler, is the only automated spiralizer, and offers the most blade options.

CONS: fixed width, takes up the most storage space, and I discovered that using the Paderno Spiralizer by hand allowed me to spiralize zucchini more quickly.

3. How to Sauté Zucchini Noodles

Sautéing your noodles might be the simplest method if you’re already cooking on the stovetop. Simply place one tablespoon of avocado or olive oil in a pan and sauté for one to two minutes. If you’re cooking zucchini pasta with lemon garlic shrimp or something similar, this is the ideal cooking technique. However, I find that I would rather not have the extra oil on the noodles if I were adding a bolognese or other sauce.
