I bought a ProCuisine 5 Blade Vegetable Spiralizer, which I have decided to review. It comes in a detailed box, showing the product and giving you some information about it. The spiralizer has dimensions of 31cm in length, 23.5cm in height and 17 cm in depth.
- 1x Spiralizer
- 5x Blades (Different shapes/sizes)
- User Manual
The spiralizer is white and sturdy, with suction cups on the feet to ensure a steady fit when spiralizing food. I had no problem with the suction cups at all and the spiralizer stayed secure throughout use and even afterwards too. You will also find a handle that allows it to be easier to move the vegetable closer as you spiralize it. It is made from tough food-grade plastic. The spiralizer is also dishwasher safe.
There are 5 blades which come in different shapes and sizes, which are made from an ultra-sharp premium 304-grade stainless steel. The different sizes allows you to make a variety of cuts such as noodles, ribbons and curly fries. So far, I have only made noodles with courgettes. There is a storage section on the spiralizer, but only has space for 2 extra blades as well as the one you can have fitted ready to spiralize with. Maybe an extra 2 storage spaces would be good, but I don’t think it matters too much.
To change the blades, you just slide the one out of the slot that you are using and slide another one into the space. It’s that simple; no hassle at all.
On each blade, you will find the coring section. This is for you to put into the vegetable for you to spiralize around. This will then leave the core of the vegetable. It doesn’t really leave too much wastage as it is only the core, which I would assume could easily be cooked along with the vegetables.
You also get free access to the 101 Super Spiralizer Recipe Ebook, which is worth £11.99. It says that it is emailed to the email address associated with your Amazon account with your order confirmation, but mine wasn’t. However, you can alternatively download it using a link that you can find on the instruction manual, in a box at the very bottom of the page.
So far, I have only made noodles with courgettes and added chicken pieces and green pesto to it. I have to say that I really enjoyed it. It made a nice change and I felt a bit healthier by eating it. It is a pretty good piece of equipment. It works well and gives you a lot of variety. One thing I will say is that if you want to make noodles but your vegetable is a bit on the small side, you may just end up making some ribbons. My courgette was thin at one end which didn’t reach the noodle blade, just the ribbon slicing part. As my courgette thickened, I finally made noodles. Just be aware of that. All in all, I really like my new piece of kitchen equipment.
The ProCuisine 5 Blade Vegetable Spiralizer is currently on sale at Amazon UK for £14.99 with a RRP of £29.99. It states that the spiralizer is covered with a lifetime warranty.
