Most spiralizers cut horizontally and will have a food tray to catch the spirals as they are created. If you are cutting a lot of vegetables then you can just allow it to accumulate on a board or work top. Spiralizers are designed to be counter top and have suction pads to keep them stable when in use.
If you prefer to cut horizontally then there are spiralizers available and some people find it easier to cut hard vegetables in this way. The blades can be incorporated in the unit or loose, allowing you to manually change the blade to one of your choice.
Most spiralizer blades are separate to the spiralizer and the more expensive units usually have the greatest choice of blades. Look out for quality stainless steel which will be easy to clean and very durable. The product guide will supply the detail on the sizes of the blades and the different types of cut. A Julienne blade is one of the most popular.
When you have selected a product, read user reviews carefully to find out how well the spiralizer cuts – some units are better than others. If you are cooking for a family then you will need a spiralizer to cut quickly and efficiently otherwise it can take too long to make a decent quantity.
Ease of use
Some people prefer horizontal spiralizers as they find them easier to use. It can be less effort to exert pressure downwards rather than vertically and gravity helps. How easy a unit is to use will also depend on the speed and efficiency of the cutting blades.
How to use a spiralizer?
The concept is designed to be simple, just choose your blade, load your vegetable and rotate the handle to produce beautiful spirals, curls or slices to suit your recipe. Selecting the right blade is either done manually or, if the blades are integrated within the unit, by using a switch on the top or side.
Some spiralizers come with a tray to catch the food as it comes out but if you are doing a lot, most people let it accumulate on a board or even the counter top.
