My "Zoodles!!!"

LOVING my new Benriner "Cook Help" spiral vegetable slicer!

Made angel hair "zoodles" tonight (zucchini noodles), and my kiddos went CRAZY for them!

Everyone should have one of these! It's so healthy & so quick! Plus, the kids had a blast helping! Comes with three different dimension blades & a ribbon slicer. We will never go back to regular (or commercial gluten-free) noodles!

Re: My "Zoodles!!!"

Ok that thing is really cool! Where did you get it? I have had the hardest time making zucchini pasta. The mandolin just doesn't work (and I sliced my thumb the last time I used it, it was horrible and I might have scarred my oldest son for life) and my food processor will do it but the "noodles" are really just tiny chunks, not long noodles like this. I do love spaghetti squash but I hate having to slice the things.

Wow! Love that! Would the pasta attachment on a KA mix do this?

https://rawnutrition.3dcartstores.co...2402_p_36.html. They had the best price/shipping for this model. It is made in Japan.

Here is a demonstration of it in action. http://youtu.be/PDBnmXBg0xc

I have no idea. I'm sorry! I returned my KA Commercial/Industrial Mixer as I blew the motor with my first batch of bread!

Re: My "Zoodles!!!"

I like my spiralizer A LOT! It's a different gadget but it does the same thing. My husband surprised me with it for Christmas and my oldest and I enjoy it. I don't eat spaghetti any more but it used to be my favourite meal...but I do feel good about eating and feeding my oldest veggie noodles instead of pasta! My husband and 2 younger LO's aren't crazy about it though. Well, my younger 2 do like turning the spiralizing thing, but don't care for the zoodles...

I like this one bc it is vertical and there is no core left over. Just a small "coin"

ETA: This one also does the angel hair cut, which is what style of pasta we love!

Awesome! I've always wanted one. Is that what they use for diakon radish at Japanese restaurants?
