Ideal World Spiralizer Review

My kitchen cupboards are full to the brim with kitchen gadgets, I just can’t get enough of them. After spiralizers became popular I brought a handheld one and I can’t say I was very impressed with it, it now lives at the back of the cupboard with the rest of my reject gadgets. Recently I was offered the change to review a counter top spiralizer from Ideal World which also comes with a recipe book with over 40 recipes to make with your spiralizer.

First impressions:

Impressive! It comes with 3 different blades and it also has two slots underneath to store them. There are suction pads on the bottom so it doesn’t slip whilst you are using it.

Usage:

Attaching the fruit and vegetables is very easy and so is changing the blades. I tried apple, sweet potato, carrot, cucumber, courgette and potato. The softer foods were very resilient however, the sweet potato did require a little more force when turning the handle. The carrot was a bit of a problem, it didn’t spiralizer well with any of the blades. Maybe if the carrot had been thicker it would have worked better.

The blades:

Ribbon blade – Makes thick ribbon spirals.

Large grater – Makes thick noodle spirals.

Small grater – Makes thinner noodle spirals.

Cleaning:

The spiralizer comes apart for easy cleaning. The only problem I experienced is that the sweet potato stained the white plastic.

Conclusion:

For anyone wanting to swap high carb foods for a healthy and low-calorie alternative, then I would highly recommend this one. It is affordable at £16.99 and I can predict that I will be getting a lot of use out of this one. I have already started to swap things like spaghetti, noodles and chips for healthier alternatives which my children haven’t noticed! I made sweet potato fries which have been a big hit. I spiralizered them with the large grater, sprinkled over pepper and paprika, sprayed with oil, and then cooked them at 200c for 15 minutes.
