We are on a mission to try all of the appliances & kitchen gadgets that Rose received from Santa this year. This week we tried the KitchenAid Spiralizer with peel, core and slice attachments. The attachments are fairly easy to use although at first glance it looks a little intimidating with so many blade choices.
We watched a YouTube video of how to assemble everything because that is just way easier than reading the entire instruction book. With a few clicks here and there everything was locked in place. I would like to note that obviously everything has a sharp blade which is a little nerve-racking with a ten year old operating it. To be honest it was also a bit nerve-racking for me to try to clean the attachments. We spiralized a zucchini first. It was super fast and easy to use and made great looking noodles. Rose didn’t like the way she cooked the noodles but she ate them anyways. We found some great recipes on Pinterest to use next time. We tried a sweet potato next. I’m not sure if we used the wrong attachment but it sure didn’t want to slice the sweet potato. We gave up on the sweet potato and moved to regular potatoes to make curly fries.
The spiralizer worked super fast and easy on them and we had amazing looking curly potatoes in no time!
Santa also gave her a deep fryer in which we used to make the fries. The curly fries cooked quickly since they were sliced so thin. They were very good and were eaten as fast as we could fry them. I would recommend the spiralizer attachment. Santa said the cost was around $99. That’s not cheap for an attachment but I think we will use it frequently. It’s just something about vegetables being spiral sliced that makes them more appealing.
