Why spiral once when you can spiral four times? Spiral cutters seem to be big right now, and it’s easy to see why. They are simple contraptions that make it easy to add a dimension of flair to home cooked meals.
Often however, they are unitaskers: little gadgets that only do one thing. That’s not necessarily a bad thing though; think of a common grater — they don’t do much else than grate food, but are extremely handy little devices in the kitchen. Of course, having more grating options like fine, medium or course makes it all the more useful. So too with the spiral cutters.
The Paderno World Cuisine 4-Blade Spiralizer ups the ante for a spiral cutter and features four interchangeable blades:
– Straight/Accordion Blade: Create ribbon cuts for salads, shredded cabbage for coleslaw, vegetable pasta, apple chips, and when used with the included pin you can create the popular spiral cut potato skewers.
– Angel Hair Shredding Blade (NEW): This blade creates perfect angle hair strands out of fruit and vegetables. Angel hair strands are ideal for use in soups, salads, and as a replacement for traditional pasta with a delicate sauce.
– Fine Shredding Blade: This is our popular â€œspaghettiâ€ blade and is used to create a medium-sized cut for pasta replacement, stir-fry, and salads. Theses strands will hold up to a heavier or more substantial sauce like Bolognese.
– Chipping Blade: This blade allows you to create thicker stands or cuts. These thicker cuts are perfect for roasting and sautÃ©ing, and create an amazing base for many sauces. Make curly fries in mere moments with just a few turns of the handle.
The little kitchen countertop prep tool works by attaching a fruit or vegetable to the blade plate on one end and prongs on the other. Then, just twist the handle and let your imagination spin.
