Hello! Popping in today to for a quick off-the-cuff review of something cool I found today! FYI: This post is not sponsored or anything. I found and purchased this item myself at our local Walmart and wanted to write a brief review about it ๐Ÿ™‚

For a while now I have been coveting a vegetable spiralizer but never felt like spending more than $20 for one since some of the ones I have seen really didn’t look like they were worth more than that. It looked like a great way to add in extra vegetables to our diet, plus now that I’m eating fewer grains, I haven’t had pasta in months.

I was at my local Walmart this morning and found some of these simple spiralizers by Veggetti. I have seen some like these before but wasn’t sure how they would hold up or how well they would work for different vegetables (soft and hard) so I bought one for $15 and decided to give it a go.

I am skeptical of the “as seen on TV” type gadgets, but I was curious – I had to try! On a side note, I suspect that’s how they get most people to buy those types of gadgets: curiosity mostly ๐Ÿ˜‰

Turns out, it works great! I made noodles with zucchini (zoodles), cucumbers (coodles??), and even pepino melon (hmm, moodles perhaps?). I didn’t have carrots to try but I used sweet potatoes instead and it worked perfectly (I guess those would be called swoodles haha). It’s even more fun making up names for these noodles than making and eating them ๐Ÿ˜‰

Down the road I want to try some more fruits, like melon or apples, and maybe peaches (those would definitely be poodles!).

  1. Thank you for the information on the hand held Veggetti spiral vegetable cutter and the comments but I strongly suspect you and some of the other commenters have not actually used the Veggetti because if you had you will certainly know and I sincerely hope you would alert your readers that if you spiral cut carrot or kumara, (sweet potato) or particularly beetroot the white plastic inside the cutter will discolour and you will be left with an orange or red stain which is very hard to remove, only repeated rubbing with a cloth or repeated brushing with a tooth brush seems to remove the stain. Soaking in detergent will not remove the stain and it may be that a spray and wipe kitchen / bathroom surface cleaner will remove the stain but I am loath to use such chemicals on food preparation utensil.
    Please note repeated rubbing the inside of the cutter is a dangerous endeavour due to the very sharp nature of the cutting blades.

    • Hi Kris, there really isn’t anything wrong with stained plastic, it won’t affect how it works and since it’s not a kitchen item for display, I personally don’t care if my spiralizer gets stained (I think the majority of cooks feel the same about their cooking tools). Most cooks are aware that their tools will get some stains with things like carrots and beets. My cutting boards get stained by beets, it’s not a problem, and it only takes a couple of washings to come out (it’s rarely permanent on good plastic).

      Stains are inevitable, but not bothersome or damaging at all, so I won’t risk cutting my fingers to try and rid the plastic of stains. Most people are aware of the risk of cuts if they try to reach into the spiralizer to clean it. That is the manufacturer’s responsibility to provide a cut warning and cleaning instructions, and not the purpose of this post.

      A warning about stained plastic really isn’t necessary in my post. Dealing with stained kitchen tools is a personal preference has nothing to do with the performance or safety of the spiralizer.

  2. hi, everytime I Watch video on Veggeti people always use zucchini. But it says you can use any vegetables. How did you do with potatoes? Thanks

    • Hi Lynda! This worked good on the sweet potato I used, i didn’t use a regular potato (that tan colored thing in the photo was a pepino melon) but I think potatoes would work good too as long as it was raw and cut to fit the spiralizer.

  3. Hi, just tried the veggetti and frankly was disappointed. I found if you had larger or smaller veggies it didn’t work well, plus, I wasted a lot at the end when it would have ripped my fingers – The leftover chuck not able to use the food safety holder! I sautรฉed leftover pieces so I didn’t have to toss them. I found the only way to do this well was to buy veggies that accommodate the gadget. I have a garden so my veggies grow at a different rate.

    • It is true it works best to buy vegetables that will fit good in the spiralizer. I bought zucchini that I knew would fit well, and didn’t worry too much about the leftovers, I chopped them up for something else. This might work well for some and not others, so thank you for sharing!

    • I did notice that this one is interesting to clean – I definitely can’t let any food dry on it. A bottle brush seems to work good (and saves my fingers!). ๐Ÿ™‚

    • We tried a single serve ice cream maker one time that was one of those “as seen on TV” things. It only kinda sorta worked! I say there is always room for some skepticism, especially when it comes to spending money!

  4. Do you know? I think I am so behind the times. I eat mostly paleo and I *still* have not used any kind of spiralizer? How sad is that? Must remedy–asap! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I am a big zoodles fan too. Eat them several times a week. I also like to do sweet potatoes but I bake those. Have never tried them raw. And cucumbers! And beets! So fun.

    • That’s what I’m trying to find out: can we use beets in the Veggetti? They are roasted and peeled but I’m not sure if it will work. Also, I wonder how well carrots work since they are not as wide as the zucchini.

      Reply
      • Using beets in the spiralizer might work if they are still firm (not mushy) and are small enough or cut to fit inside the spiralizer. Whole carrots are fine since the spiralizer is tapered to allow smaller and larger foods, the carrot “noodles” might not be as long
