OXO Handheld Spiralizer
Just testing the spiralizing waters? This small device can fit easily into a drawer, making it ideal for the occasional user. The only caveat: Since it’s on the smaller side, you may need to put in a little more grunt work to get your noodles than you would with a countertop model.
OXO Good Grips 3-Blade Spiralizer with StrongHold Suction
This countertop model holds blades compactly, so you don’t need a ton of counter space to store it. Helpful suction cups keep the unit in place while you’re shredding away. Bonus: You can throw it in the dishwasher when you’re done for easy cleaning.
If you’re planning on getting a lot of use out of your spiralizer, invest in The Inspiralizer, which was designed by the author of the best-selling cookbook Inspiralized: Turn Vegetables into Healthy, Creative, Satisfying Meals ($12; amazon.com). This gadget lets you shred veggies into four different shapes: a ribbon, Fettuccine, spaghetti, and linguine.
KitchenAid Spiralizer Attachment
Have a KitchenAid mixer? You can purchase this workhorse attachment that not only spiralizes, but also slices, cores, and peels produce—eliminating the need for yet another counter–clogging kitchen appliance.
