Guide to the Best Spiralizers
Spiralizers turn vegetables and fruits into noodles. Spiralized zucchini noodles, or “zoodles” have gained popularity recently because they make tasty low-carb pasta dish alternatives that satisfy paleo, low carb and gluten free diets.
There are a few different things that set these trendy gadgets apart from one another: the quality of the spiral cut vegetables, stability, ease of use, economy of cabinet space, price. The list of factors to consider goes on, but instead of giving you a long list and a serious case of option fatigue, check out our short list of recommended spiralizers.
The combination of great looking spiral cut veggies, spiralizer stability and great price point make this our choice for the best spiralizer. Once locked down with the powerful suction grips, this machine makes handy and beautiful work of zucchini, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and even squash.

This is our choice for the best premium spiralizer. It’s sturdy enough to work on more fibrous vegetables, and the quality of the spiral-cut vegetables is more or less unmatched. This model has an elegant stabilization system (one massive suction cup as opposed to a few small ones) that can withstand the use of your most enthusiastic sous chef.
Occasional zoodlers will love this handheld spiralizer in their kitchens. This spiralizer functions a lot like a manual pencil sharpener; you twist and push the vegetable through the blade and watch as spiral-cut vegetables emerge. If you’re looking to add zoodles as a garnish to a larger plate, cooking for one or wanting to give this spiralizer thing a try, this is the spiralizer to go with.
This is the most multi-functional spiralizer on this list. On top of spiralizing, it can be used as a mandoline, grater or juicer.
You’ll notice that the crank is on the top rather than the side on this model, so you don’t need a ton of suction to maintain stability throughout chopping and slicing.
