Brieftons sent me their Brieftons 5-Blade Spiralizer | Vegetable Spiral Slicer to review. I’ve always wanted to try one of these kitchen tools that can turn a zucchini into veggie noodles. Well, today is my chance! With the 5-blade Spiralizer by Brieftons, you can turn Butternut Squash, Zucchini, and their little cousins Sweet Potatoes, into tasty veggie pastas. Keep reading to find out what I think.
What can you do with the complete set of 5 blades?
Angel-hair blade for 2mm ultra thin noodles
Fine-shredding blade for 3mm-wide noodles
Crude-shedding blade for 6mm-wide noodles
Flat blade for ribbon-like noodles
Curly-fry blade for 10mm wide x 6mm thick curly fries
I received my package in excellent condition. All five blades ( 1 Angel-hair blade, 1 Fine-Shredding Blade, 1 Crude-Shredding Blade, 1 Curly-Fry Blade and 1 Flat blade) were included in the box. There is room to store up to 3 blades within the spiralizer. I wish there were enough room to store all five blades. The base/bottom of the spiralizer has suction cups that keep it in place on the kitchen counter. It took me less than three minutes to figure out each piece and put the machine together. The blades are dishwasher safe and it is easy to hand wash them also. The Brieftons 5-Blade Spiralizer is easy to use.
If your fruit or vegetable needs to be peeled, you have to do that yourself. The machine does not do it. It is better to cut the top and the bottom of the vegetable for proper fitting and easy gripping by the spike holds. Once the vegetable is tightly held, you can start turning the vegetable clockwise through the blades with the help of the handle. Each vegetable you push through the blades gets spiralized. You get long strings of spiral veggies. Keep in mind that this machine is not a slicer.
