Perfect Zucchini “Pasta”!!! Exactly what I was looking for! I researched all the gadgets available for making long vegetable strands for low-carb and/or healthy veggie meals and decided to purchase the GEFU Spirelli, and I’m very glad I did! Unlike other more complicated devices, this handy little item is only about 4 3/4 inches tall and about 2 3/4 inches wide, small enough to easily fit in a kitchen drawer. The only other piece is a little cap that attaches to the end of the vegetable. So far I have used this to make long julienne strips of carrots and zucchini (so much easier and faster than with my potato peeler!). The Spirelli has two openings, both with sharp blades (one end cuts strands 2×3 mm, and the other end cuts 3.5×5 mm) and all you do is place your veggie (straight and firm works best) into the Spirelli, twist in your vegetable with a mild pressure – and voila! You now have nice long strands of vegetable pasta!
My new favorite toy and Instructions on how to use it After reading the reviews, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to use this for carrots. True, it didn’t come with instructions, and the youtube video only demonstrated spiraling zucchini, which is the easiest vegetable to do. Here’s how to do it. Set the spiraler flat on the counter and hold it with your left hand. Insert your cylindrical vegetable straight in–do not lean it to the side so it totally makes contact with the blade (this is what I first did and broke a few carrots doing it.) Only the tip should have contact with the blade. With your right hand, hold the top of the vegetable with a paper towel . The guard is useless and the veggies get slippery, so the paper towel helps you grip. Then with firm, even pressure, twist the vegetable, keeping it upright in the cylinder. Do one full twist, re-grip, and twist again. As other users mentioned, it works great on zucchini and yellow squash. But it also works great on carrots, sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. I cook the spirals in the skillet or microwave, and I also cook them in the oven at 425 after lightly spraying with cooking spray and sprinkling with a little salt and pepper. Just make sure when you purchase the veggies, they aren’t wider than the cylinder. Think long and skinny. There is some waste, but I expect this whenever I make something fancy. (I just throw the waste in the freezer with my other veggie scraps for my next batch of homemade vegetable broth.) I love this thing! It makes veggies fun again and is small enough for easy storage!
Really Cool! I’m on a low carb diet and this cutter turns the zucchini into neat spirals that look just like pasta. Real easy to use. I recommend highly!
