KitchenAid Spiralizer Attachment Review

KitchenAid Spiralizer AttachmentFor those of us trying to eat healthier (and who isn’t these days), the KitchenAid Spiralizer attachment can be a godsend. 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 use sweet potatoes as a base for Spaghetti carbonara – the possibilities are endless – and be prepared to serve seconds.

Even salads are much more fun when spirals are involved: kids love them and love making them… just ‘forget’ to mention all the health benefits and enjoy the praise!
