I just got a Veggetti spiral vegetable slicer. It’s basically built like a pencil sharpener for zucchini. You insert the zucchini and twist and then you have pasta shaped vegetable strands in spaghetti or linguini shape. They suggest you can use carrots but I tried one and got the forking thing all jammed up.
I also have the Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer.
The Paderno also promises to do carrots but it doesn’t. The Paderno has three easy to clean blades for small or thicker strands and it also can do ribbons.
Pros for the Veggetti
The Veggetti is easy to work
The Veggetti takes up less room
The Veggetti cost less (about $12.00)
The Veggetti does produce a thinner strand
CONS for the Veggetti
The Veggetti is VERY HARD TO CLEAN. The Blades are almost impossible to clean and the vegetable gets the whole forking middle all clogged up.
Pros for the Paderno
The Paderno is easy to work
The Paderno cuts the zucchini three different ways
The Paderno is very easy to clean
CONS for the Paderno
The Paderno takes up more room
The Paderno cost more (about $30.00)
I’m not so sure I’ll ever forking use the Veggetti again. I do prefer it’s thinner strands but I doubt I’ll ever be able to get it clean again.
In my forking opinion the Paderno Wins over the Forking Veggetti.
