Product Review: Betty Bossi Veggie TwisterI think in any kitchen where some fun is needed then a spiralizer is needed also!I didn't want to spend too much money on one, so I did some hunting around & found this Betty Bossi one that wasn't too expensive.
Here's my review and also some instructions on how it works.
- I love how easy it is to use
- Goes in the dishwasher - or easy to handwash
- 2 shapes of noodles - which I love
- Doesn't take up a lot of cupboard space
- Having to un-wind it is a bit annoying
- Can't use it for thick vegetables at all (they won't fit in the case itself)
- Small part of the vegetable is leftover and can't really be used with the spirals (not a huge issue, to be honest - I usually just eat it!)
- Only thing I find frustrating about it is having to unwind it to put the next piece in.
How it works:
The twister is comprised of 3 parts.
The two dark green parts slide into the light green part, which makes for compact storage.
The 2 dark green parts are for the different types of noodles.
Either wide, like thick rice noodles, or stringy, like spaghetti.
Cut the end off your desired vegetable. Chop in half & position one half on the spikes at the end of the light green part to hold it in place.
Cover the vegetable with the dark green part of choice, and twist until the noodles begin to press out.
Continue to turn the light green compartment until it is all the way down, pressed against the dark green compartment as shown below.
That is when you have to re-wind the whole thing again before you can insert the other half of the vegetable to twist that also!
A small part of the vegetable will be leftover & cannot be spiralized with the rest.
It makes fantastic noodles & spaghetti!
Best of all - it is dishwasher safe! Anything I don't have to wash up is good! ;-)
Here's some of my recipes using the spiralizer:
Pumpkin cheeze sauce
Overall Rating: 4/5
Definitely worth getting one if you'd like to try out a spiralizer without spending too much & don't have the cupboard space for a larger one.
I got mine from Victorias Basement, they are also available online at Amazon.
