Oxo Spiralizer Review

Since I started healthy eating I have been searching for ways to reduce my carb intake. I have always found that carbs lie heavy in my tummy and make me feel uncomfortably full. When I joined Slimming World I discovered I could eat as much pasta as I wanted as it's listed as a free food, but I didn't want to do that as I don't think carb loading will work for me. Through social media I saw that lots of people have been making pasta out of vegetables you will find in your fridge, so my hunt for a spiralizer began.
Step up the Good Grips Spiralizer from Oxo Uk rrp £15.00 who say, Spiralized vegetables are a fun and delicious way to incorporate more vegetables into your favorite recipes, or the perfect opportunity to try out new dishes. OXO Good Grips Hand-Held Spiralizer creates uniform, curly noodles from courgette, cucumbers, and other long vegetables for pasta-like dishes, salads and garnishes. The open-blade design also accommodates round vegetables like potatoes and beets for curly fries, frittatas and more. The food holder keeps hands safe and is easy to grip while turning down to the end of vegetables to minimize waste. The BPA-free Hand-Held Spiralizer is dishwasher safe and the food holder acts as a cap for safe storage.
The Non-slip grip for comfortable spiralizing  is fab and there is a handle on food holder is easy to hold and turn all the way down for minimal waste. The open blade design accommodates both long vegetables like courgettes and round vegetables like potatoes, onions or beetroot. It creates uniform curly spiralized noodles from fruits and vegetables to make healthier meals. The food holder keeps hands safe and acts as a cap for safe storage and the whole thing is dishwasher safe.
It's really easy to use thanks to the non-slip food grip, you simply push your vegetable onto the pronged food plate and place on top of the bladed part of the spiralizer. All you have to do then is turn the handle, easy peasy.
As you keep on turning you will see your vegetable ribbons appear out of the bottom of the spiralizer. All the while your fingers are completely safe from the covered blade. My children were mesmerized by this gadget and wanted to spiralize all the vegetables in the fridge!
You can literally spiralize any of your vegetables as this gadget is even capable of spiralizing your potatoes and onions. It's perfect if like me you like making your own coleslaw or maybe you just like finely sliced vegetables. Either way you need this nifty little thing in your kitchen draw!

  4. This is cute, plus it is small enough to live in a drawer. Some I have looked at have been HUGE and would just take up counter space!!
