8 Ways a Spiralizer Will Change Your Life

21 Easy to Follow Recipes

  • Cuts through veggies with ease

  • No mess, easy to clean up

  • All blades are marked

  • Comes with blade caddy and veggie catching container

  • Suction cups on bottom for stabilizing 

  • Blades won’t work properly if blade post isn’t in tight

  • Can get tiring when slicing tough vegetables

  • Catch container for veggies isn’t very big

“If you’re going to buy a spiralizer, buy something like this! The time saved from the hand held versions cannot be matched. I can spiralize a zucchini in less than thirty seconds and that’s while breaking off strips once they reach a certain length. It also has so many options! I can finally make the large zoodles I see at restaurants. Probably the only thing extra I could have thought for this is the ability to cut off strips oh, but it would be less safe that way.”

“I love this spiralizer. It has 10 blades, and has a slot for all 10. It is compact but does a great job. It has a suction cup that holds everything tight as you use it. You just turn a lever and turn it back to lift it up to clean. I love the storage container that comes with it. I’m always using veggies in the kitchen so this is getting used a lot. Takes a small space in the cabinet. Has a booklet that shows which blades to use with what vegetable and has some recipes. Very happy with it.”

“Good suction to countertop. Easy to learn. Easy to operate. Lots of different blades. Would recommend highly”

This dehydrator comes with five trays and it is the perfect size for one person or even a small family kitchen. It also has a convenient digital timer on the front. The transparent lid and trays allow you to easily keep an eye on your food as it dehydrates.

Laura

“My friends always said I bought something odd! This is fabulous! EASY for lazy people like me! It has 5 trays! Totally enough for three boxes of strawberries. you can adjust the time and temperature. Before you go to bed to make it. When you wake up, you can enjoy it. And this won’t make a loud noise.”

Eurus

 I love the amount of trays, and they settle into each other perfectly.

 Easy to clean, easy to use!!”

“I am in love with the large chute on this juicer. Half the time, if I decide against making juice, it would be because I didn’t want to go through the hassle of cutting all of the produce before juicing. This takes the need for that step away. I am beyond satisfied with this product!”

Amanda

“This juicer was so simple to use. I have had several other juicers and this one was the easiest and made the most juice. I feel like I am wasting less food and get more juice. I also recommend reading the tips sections in the booklet when you buy it because there are some really helpful tips in it.”

Jenn

“This is the first juicer I’ve ever purchased, and it makes quick work of the juicing process — pulp goes in the little bin and juice goes into the measuring cup. Not too many parts and pieces, and clean-up is not bad if you do so immediately. I have only experimented with a few vegetables but this is a powerful little machine. The seller was prompt, very pleasant and reasonable. Happy Juicing!”

“This is the most perfect little appliance. I’ve cooked quinoa, barley & rice in it. It works very well. Reading the reviews before I bought it, I covered the steam hole with a lightweight cotton towel, to prevent a mess. No mess! Perfect for one person. Since it’s so small, it doesn’t take up much room, which is another plus. In a short time, you have a perfectly cooked grain! I cook the maximum amount & it lasts me for four meals. Love this thing!”

J. Manning

“Great little machine. I love all the things you can cook in it vs my 1990’s era steamer! This little guy had big shoes to fill-I LOVED my old steamer-and it’s easily my new favorite kitchen appliance it’s small & easy to store and very easy to clean. I have turned it off before it’s done cooking as my rice seemed (and was) done. Just keep an eye on it. But seriously people, it’s a good price, good brand, great buy.”

Erica

“I am cooking for two but I pack leftovers for lunch. This is the perfect size for 2-3 people. I enjoy rice but CANNOT cook it on the stove, I burn it every time. This rice cooker is great! It cooks perfect rice every time and I don’t even have to worry about it while I am cooking the rest of dinner. So nice!”
