It’s been two and a half years since I first posted the incredibly popular 14 Methods to Make Zucchini Noodles. I almost can’t believe it!
Today I’m excited to share TWO additional ways to make zucchini noodles, bringing the method count up to sixteen.
Method 15: Regular and Thin Spaghetti-sized Noodles
- Product name: GEFU Spirelli Spiral Slicer (Blue) [Buy on Amazon]
- Description: With the Spiral Slicer you can conjure up endless julienne strips of carrot, radish, cucumber and all kinds of other firm vegetables. The 2x 3mm or 3.5 x 5mm spirals are perfect to create vegetable stir fries or pasta dishes. Also great for garnishes and plating.
- Awesome for traveling
- It’s incredibly light-weight and compact with a height just under 5 inches
- Blades tucked on the inside
- They come in 5 bright colors
- Prime shipping through Amazon is available
- Good for small to medium-sized cylindrical vegetables i.e. carrots, zucchini, cucumbers, daikon radish, etc.
- Dishwasher safe
- I find the lid useless, the teeth don’t hold on. It’s easier to hold the vegetable directly
- Will not work on round or bulbous vegetables
- About 1.5-2 inches of vegetable will not turn into a noodle
Overall, I recommend. It’s sturdy, but light-weight, perfect for camping or traveling. I would like to now if TSA allows it as a carry on item
Method 16: Short and Sturdy Noodles
- Product name: The Zuudlemaker – Julienne Vegetable Slicer [Buy on Amazon]
- Description: A non-traditional grater with two rows of teeth set after a long plank
- It’s slim and fits in a drawer perfectly
- Another tool that would travel well
- Produces a thicker sturdier strand of noodle that retains more of the ‘water’ (seen above, the result of this tool on the left and a traditional grater on the right)
- Good on all vegetable sizes
- Dishwasher safe
- Comes with a free recipe booklet for immediate inspiration
- Wears well and stays sharp
- Doesn’t come with a safety guard, but that is easily remedied by having gloves on hand
Overall, I definitely recommend this tool. I prefer it 1,000 times over the traditional grater, the quality of the grate is just amazing.
Do you have a favorite method? Do you ever travel with a spiralizer?
