Thanks for stopping by College Kitchen to learn how to make zoodles.
We review the Best Spiralizer on the Market. Let’s jump into this review. First we have the Veggetti. It’s $10, well $9.99 on Amazon. It’s good if you don’t have a lot of money and if you don’t have a lot of space. Yes. And it works great. We used it for a long time. Yeah I think I bought this at the beginning of 2018 and it’s now near the end of 2018 so we’ve been using it all year. What the heck? And we make lots of zoodles with it. We love zoodles.
We do. If you don’t know what a zoodle is, go watch our other video.
It’s dishwasher safe on the top shelf which is always really great. We love that. I don’t like to hand wash anything. It’s not fun. Nobody likes that. There’s one thing that I don’t like very much about this product and there’s one thing that I hate, just kidding, that I don’t like.
What We Don’t Like about the Veggetti
So the one thing that I don’t like very much about this product is when you have the zucchini and you have both of the end cut off you stick this little top part in the end like that and then you start to turn your zucchini, a lot of times it will just cut out the inside of the zucchini and then you can’t use this anymore, which means you end up with about this much of your zucchini that you – just goes to waste. So that’s a little annoying about it.
What I don’t like is that your wrist starts to hurt really bad when you do it. It does. Like I just have bad wrists like I go to tumbling and my wrists hurt all the time even though I’m always working them out so if you have to make a lot of zoodles and you have to do this motion over and over. It hurts your wrists a lot. It definitely will start to hurt your wrists so that’s not fun. This is not the best spiralizer on the market.
Breiftons 5-Blade Review:
This is the Brieftons 5-Blade spiralizer. This is really incredible. It’s so fancy. I feel like a professional chef. I mean it is very fancy. Can I just say there’s a lot of different features on this that make it – I feel like I saw this on Shark Tank. It probably should have been if it wasn’t. We don’t know for sure if it was. But there’s a lot of cool things about this. Number one is 5 different blades and they’re so easy to use. So it comes with two blades down here; it comes with one blade right here. And that is the one obviously that is doing the actual cutting. And then it has this little carrying case with two more. It’s so easy to take this out. You push this little button on the side and Robin’s going to pull that out and then you can put another on in. Did it. It’s very simple to use.
What We love about the Breiftons 5-blade:
What also is really cool about this spiralizer is there’s five different sizes. Because is called the 5 Blade. Yes. So we’ve got 2 mm, 3 mm, 5 mm, 5.5 and then there’s just a flat blade that’s going to give you a different kind of spiralized zoodle. We’ll show you those in just a minute. The other thing that I really love about this, it’s probably my favorite feature. The suction cup. You set it down on the counter and then you pull this little lever on the side pushing it down and it literally is just suctioned to the counter. It will not move. So you can move your vegetable in and out just like that and it will not go like this. Exactly because you suction it down to your table. This is the best spiralizer on the market.
There you have it! We’ve just reviewed the Veggetti and the Brieftons 5 Blade spiralizer and told you about the Best Spiralizer on the Market.
Today we are giving tips on how to not have watery zucchini noodles or zoodles.
Welcome back to College Kitchen.
Through my own trial and error, I have figured out the best way to not have watery noodles that are made from zucchini. Because zucchinis are pretty much water. Yeah like 90% water so a lot of the times if you cook with them it will just make everything really watery. That’s really gross. So we want to avoid that.
Worst Way #1
So a lot of people will say, after you could noodles on the stove that you should ring them out with some paper towels. Well, that doesn’t exactly work. It really just gets water everywhere and makes your zoodles squishy and nobody wants a squishy zucchini noodle. They’re already soft enough.
Worst Way #2
The second tip that you can find all over the Internet that I have found is not very effective is pour some salt on them and stick it in the fridge. That’s right. Leave it for about 10 minutes, come back, rinse them off with water. Like put salt on them, let them sit and then wash them off. What? You’re back to square one. I mean, you’re stuck in an endless loop for the rest of your life. Yeah don’t do that. Don’t do that. It’s not a good tip.
I’m going to tell you the best way to avoid watery zucchini noodles. It is… Broiler. The broiler.
Lay your zucchini noodles out on a tinfoil wrapped pan, that’s right, and stick them in the broiler in your oven or your toaster oven for 10 minutes. There you have it. That’s the best way to avoid watery zucchini noodles. The broiler. It’s so easy. It’s the easiest. And like I said, trial and error has made this my go to way.
