Desktop Spiralize your way to healthier meals Spiralize your way to healthier meals


With bright colors, creative shapes and endless variety, spiralized dishes will make even kids and diehard meat-and-potatoes types fall for healthy foods like zucchini, beets, carrots and squash. For a lighter, healthier lunch or dinner, just substitute spiralized zucchini for pasta noodles or make any colorful veggie the main attraction rather than the side dish. Spiralizing is a fun way to get more fruits and veggies into everyone’s day, and it’s perfect for pleasing those on vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or low-carb diets.

Foods you can spiralize

Foods you can spiralize

Nature made some foods perfect for spiralizing—generally these are firm and wide veggies like zucchini, cucumbers, squash, sweet potatoes and beets. But other options such as apples, carrots, bell peppers and red cabbage work beautifully too. Because the appearance of any food plays such a big role in how it’s enjoyed, consider brightly colored foods for spiralized vegetable recipes and move your stir fries, salads and other veggie dishes from the sidelines to center stage.

Ways to spiralize

Spiralizing certainly happened before spiralizers ever existed. You can spiralize vegetables and fruits with a potato peeler or julienne peeler, but why? Spiralizing the old fashioned way requires a significant investment of time, and you won’t have all of the shape and thickness options that come standard with a modern spiralizer. Hand-crank spiralizers are also an option, but these require a bit of strength and plenty of time.

Electric spiralizers make it easy to prepare large batches of potato chips, vegetable noodles, curly fries or anything else you’re cooking up. Multiple cutting cones allow you to adjust the thickness of your spirals for zucchini linguini or sweet potato fettuccine. If you already have a food processor you love, a vegetable spiralizer like the affordable 3-in-1 Electric Spiralizer can be a great complement in the kitchen.

Spiralizing food processors

Spiralizing food processors

A spiralizing food processor combines an electric spiralizer with the functionality of a food processor, so in addition to spiralizing, you can slice, shred, chop, puree and knead. This is a great choice for anyone in the market for an electric spiralizer and a new or better food processor. Consider the new 10 Cup Spiralizing Food Processor or the Hamilton Beach® Professional Spiralizing Stack & Snap Food Processor, which can handle up to 12 cups of food at a time.
