KitchenAid Spiralizer Attachment Review

KitchenAid Spiralizer AttachmentThe KitchenAid Spiralizer attachment can be a godsend for those of us trying to eat healthier – and who isn’t these days? No more trying to convince your tribe to swallow yet ANOTHER salad.

Instead, surprise them with spiralized zucchini disguised as ‘spaghetti with pesto sauce’ or ‘sweet potato spaghetti carbonara’. Even salads are much more fun when spirals are involved: kids love them and love making them. Just ‘forget’ to mention health benefits, enjoy the praise and be ready for second helpings!

KitchenAid Peeler vs Slicer vs Spiralizer

First, let’s just mention that cleaning is super easy: all blades can be washed on the top rack of the dishwasher, while the main body should be wiped clean with a soft, damp cloth and dried thoroughly.

Also note that food should be 1.5”-3.75” in diameter and no longer than 5.5” to fit properly on the skewer. Here’s how to use each blade:

Fine Spiralizer Blade: works with Fruit & Vegetable Skewer & Optional Peeling Blade on Speed 4 (Zucchini, Sweet Potatoes, Beets)

Medium Spiralizer Blade: works with Fruit & Vegetable Skewer & Optional Peeling Blade on Speed 6 (Zucchini, Sweet Potatoes, Potatoes)

Spiral Slice Large Core Blade: works with Fruit & Vegetable Skewer & Optional Peeling Blade on Speed 6 (Apples and Pears)

Spiral Slice Small Core Blade: works with Fruit & Vegetable Skewer & Optional Peeling Blade on Speed 4 (Zucchini and Beets)

Spiral Peeling Blade: works with Fruit & Vegetable Skewer on Speed 4 (Apples and Potatoes)

Extra Fine Spiralizing Blade: for thin angel hair vegetable noodles, garnishes and salads

Thin Slicing Blade (Small Core): for super thin fruit or vegetable slices, crispier potato or beet chips, or more delicate garnishes
