1. Mueller

Best Overall Spiralizer

5/5 Product Rating
The Mueller Spiral-Ultra is unique in that it offers something of value to anyone who may happen to come across it. It comes with three blades, which could be considered as being the standard among products of its type. However, within the Mueller Spiral-Ultra’s price range, finding units with two blades is not at all unheard of. Compared to similar products, you can be sure you’re getting a spiralizer which does an excellent job relative to the amount of blades it actually utilizes when you buy the Mueller Spiral-Ultra. And, despite its main function being that of a spiralizer (of course), it comes with a few added features which give it more of an all-purpose stature, allowing you to save space and money through requiring less tools overall to get the job done.

One such feature is its built-in grater. Tough in stature, the grater in question can handle anything from cheese to carrots, the latter of which obviously being what you may be more inclined to use it for. Not only does this add another level of convenience to the unit, it allows you to further utilize the vegetables in your kitchen in ways you might otherwise be unable to. It also comes packed with a juicer, allowing you to whip up a tasty little drink on the side. Lastly, it also comes with a mandolin, allowing you to chop and julienne the fruits and vegetables of your choosing. These features not only make the Mueller Spiral-Ultra a great kitchen appliance, but a great overall health product, being that you’ll have every excuse to use every fruit and vegetable in your kitchen to your full advantage, no matter what it is you’re cooking.

2. Paderno

Best Overall Spiralizer – Runner Up

4.7/5 Product Rating
Much like the above spiralizer we just covered, you will most likely find the Paderno World Cuisine to be one of the more versatile products of its type currently available on the market. However, this is achieved through a different means than the above product. For example, while the Paderno World Cuisine doesn’t come with a whole lot of features which begin to give it a more all-purpose stature, you’ll actually be able to choose how many blades come equipped in your new spiralizer. Which blade count you pick will depend entirely on what you plan on using your spiralizer for in the first place (more blades are beneficial when cutting foods that are liable to wear down your current blades) and how much money you’re willing to spend on the product. Although you’re getting a pretty good bargain on a per-blade basis, more blades will cost more money. However, the added blades are liable to ultimately increase the unit’s overall level of durability, possibly offsetting the initial cost of additional blades.

While the Paderno World Cuisine certainly proves to be versatile through its level of customization, its strengths perhaps most shine through when you stop to consider its overall level of practicality. You won’t have to worry about messing around with a bunch of small pieces to get the job done. You’ll also find it to simply be very effective overall, further reducing its messing-around factor. This allows you to get the job done quickly and with ease. On the other hand, at least some part of said practicality stems from the fact that the Paderno World Cuisine comes with little in the way of additional tools. As such, this spiralizer will most likely be more suited toward you if you have no need for a new greater or any other tools which may come equipped with many of the spiralizers available on today’s market. If this sounds like you, the Paderno World Cuisine will make a great choice every time. It does exactly what it’s supposed to do; no more, no less.

3. Vertico

Best Budget Spiralizer

4.6/5 Product Rating
You can’t spell Brieftons Vertico Spiralizer without Brief. If there’s one factor in which this spiralizer beats out all of its competition, it’s in the realm of ease of use and the quickness with which it is able to complete the task at hand. You simply cannot find a better spiralizer in this regard. This is due to the design of the unit, which actually has you placing fruit and vegetables on the base of the unit, rather than forcing you to press it up against the side. Not only does this reduce that amount of food you end up dropping over the lifetime of your spiralizer, you’ll find the act of “spiralizing” foods will require absolutely no effort outside of merely turning the crank as usual. It also comes as one of the most highly-rated products of its type currently available on Amazon, with many past and previous customers praising it for its aforementioned ease of use.

Spiralizer Buying Guide

Spiralizer Reviews

What is a Spiralizer?

Spiralizer1Can’t seem to find just what it is you’re looking for in the above list? No problem! By keeping the below tips in mind while shopping around for a spiralizer, you’ll be sure to get the best product available at your disposal.

What will you be making?

The most well-known characteristic exhibited among spiralizers as a whole is their ability to make a pasta-like substance out of a variety of vegetables and even fruits. However, don’t feel as if their potential has to end there. There are quite a few spiralizers currently available on the market which can make chips (from potatoes) and “chips” (from cucumbers and the like). If you already make chips from potatoes and would like to make the process a bit easier, or if you would simply like to have another method of preparing vegetables at your disposal, such a feature is a great thing to have laying around.

Outside of pasta-making, the ability to make vegetable chips is likely the most prominent secondary feature you can expect to find in spiralizers as a whole. While I could list off the many other preparation methods you can get your hands on, we’d be here all day. Take a close look at any given spiralizer you may come across. You may find it’s a lot more capable than what you originally thought. Even if pasta isn’t up your alley, you may still find a spiralizer to be beneficial in other ways.

What else is on your shopping list?

If you’ve been planning on buying any other kitchen tools in the near future, it might be better to hold off on doing so until after you’ve picked out your spiralizer of choice. You’ll find many units actually come with a variety of included tools (such as one of the units we covered above). More often than not, acquiring your tools through the purchase of a spiralizer will often prove to be more cost efficient in the end than buying everything separately. Spiralizer2Whether you need a new grater or even a juicer, it’s likely you can find what you’re looking for included with a spiralizer.

Which fruits/vegetables will you be using?

It can be easy to assume that every single spiralizer will remain compatible with every single fruit and vegetable. Before buying a specific unit, take the time to figure out just how much volume it can work with. The last thing you need is to find out your favorite fruit is too big for the unit.

Types

Every spiralizer can be grouped into one of the two below categories. Do you know which one is right for you?

  • Manual Spiralizers – All of the three spiralizers reviewed earlier fit into this category. Manual spiralizers tend to be the more reliable of the bunch. On the other hand, you will have to exert at least some amount of effort to use them. They also tend to have a greater cost-to-quality ratio when compared to their electric counterparts.
  • Electric Spiralizers – While not as common as manual spiralizers, electric models are a favorite among those who want to keep their experience as easy as possible. On the other hand, such units are typically less durable and may not be as reliable in the long run. After all, now you have electric parts to worry about on top of the standard mechanical parts. Whether or not this is worth a higher ease-of-use factor is entirely up you.

Features

Try keeping an eye out for spiralizers exhibiting the below characteristics to ensure you get the very best model at your disposal.

  • Heat Resistance – There are so many things you can do with a spiralizer. By opting for a model which can’t stand a bit of heat, hot potatoes and a variety of other ingredients will be off the menu. Heat-resistant material keeps your options open without marking up a unit’s price to any substantial degree.
  • Spiralizer3

  • Detachable Parts – Although it might seem like a lower amount of detachable parts might make a unit easier clean, this is not at all the case. By having the option of disassembling your spiralizer down to every last part, cleaning it will be easier than ever, especially if you use a dishwasher.

Conclusion

If you made it this far, you now know everything there is to know about spiralizers. At least, as far as actually buying them goes. By keeping all of the above information in mind, you can be confident knowing you’ll get the best possible model available at your disposal. Remember, before finalizing a purchase, it always helps to see what others have to say about any given unit. Keep in mind; however, that your needs may be vastly different from those of another person.
