Paderno World Cuisine Spiral Vegetable Slicer Review

If yopaderno_mainu are looking for a detailed review of the Paderno World Cuisine Spiral Vegetable Slicer you have come to the right place. My husband and I are both engineers and we love gadgets. When I saw this Paderno Spiral Slicer, I decided to give it a try.

So, Does It Really Work? 

We’ve put together a video for you on our experiment with the Paderno Spiral Slicer.  You can see it’s  pretty detailed from the list of topics below that we covered. We are not professionals  though when it comes to making videos, so please excuse the imperfections. After you watch the video have a look below at what we think are the advantages and disadvantages of the Paderno World Cuisine Spiralizer.

Demonstrated in the Video

  • An overview of all the parts of the Spiral Slicer and each type of blade.
  • How to tightly adhere the Spiral Slicer to the counter top.
  • A tip to make removing the blades easier.
  • How to properly push the vegetables into the cutting blade.
  • How to easily clean the spiral slicer.
  • Using the shredder blade to cut zucchini noodles.
  • How to change the length of the spiral cuts.
  • Preparing zucchini slaw in three minutes.
  • Using the chipper blade to cut sweet potato curly fries.
  • Using the flat blade to cut ribbon sliced apples and potatoes.
  • My special method for dicing onions with no tears!

Paderno Spiral Slicer Disadvantages:

  • Vegetable choices are limited by size, shape and texture.  For example,  if you want to spiral slice a  head of cabbage, pick a small one.  On the other hand if you want to spiral slice a carrot, it needs to be a big one.  In considering shape, look for vegetables that are reasonably straight. A straight zucchini will work better than a curved one.  Regarding texture, fruits and vegetables that are firm work better than mushy ones.
  • Slicing removes about 1/2″ core from the middle of the vegetable and also leaves 1/4″ to 1/2″ slice that does not feed through the slicer. Watch the video above and see my reference to the “toadstool”.  There is no need to waste it though.

Paderno Spiral Slicer Advantages:

  • The slicer is made from rigid BPA free plastic and stainless steel.
  • The slicer comes with three interchangeable blades.
  • It is a hand tool, so no batteries or ac outlet is required.
  • The turning slicer design is safer to use than a mandoline slicer. The vegetables are pushed into the blades by turning the handle so your hands do not come near the blades.
  • The slicer  is easy to take apart and clean.
  • The extra blades can be stored inside the base of the slicer.
  • Four large suction cups hold the slicer tightly to the counter.
  • Reasonably priced for home use.

Conclusions:

Is the Paderno World Cuisine Spiral Vegetable Slicer the answer to all your slicing needs? No, I also have a food processor, a grater and a mandoline slicer.  I choose the tool that works best for the job.

However, if I am slicing a vegetable that could be sliced on either the mandoline or the Paderno Spiral Slicer, I always choose the spiral slicer because it feels safer to use. Your hands never need to come close to the blade, because on the spiral slicer the vegetables are pushed into the cutting blade by turning the crank handle.

My food processor works great, but it is more difficult to clean. So again I choose the Paderno Spiral Slicer over the food processor if I am cutting a vegetable that will work with either one.

The Paderno Spiral Slicer is my first choice for zucchini noodles, ribbon sliced apples, shredded cabbage,  curly sweet potatoes and of course my no-tears diced onions.  I am still finding new ways to use it. Last night we put zucchini spirals on our taco salad instead of lettuce. It was delicious!

The Paderno World Cuisine Spiral Vegetable Slicer has been a great addition to our kitchen. It is fun to use and we don’t worry about accidentally cutting ourselves with it.   Clean up is so easy. We are  eating more vegetables and loving it!   Give it a try.  I hope you will like it as much as I do.

I hope this review has been helpful to you. Thanks for visiting my website.

Paderno World Cuisine Spiral Vegetable Slicer Recipes

Easy Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer Recipes

spaghetti_with_zucchini_noodles

When I first saw the Paderno World Cuisine Spiral Vegetable Slicer, I hoped to use it to entice the family, especially the grandchildren  to eat more fruits and vegetables. When I got the  slicer and started to use it, I was surprised at how much fun it was to “spiralize”. I started looking for more and more ways to use it just because it was fun.

The Paderno Spiral Slicer has three blades to choose from.  Using the shredder blade on the spiral slicer, you can make zucchini noodles and slice onions with no more tears!  Yes, no more tears – keep reading.  With the chipper blade you can make your own curly fries. Now you may be thinking that curly fries are not healthy, but they can be.  I especially like sweet potato curly fries cooked in the oven with just a little olive oil and salt, but you can get creative and try all kinds of seasonings. The flat blade is great for slicing apples and potatoes as well.  With three blade choices you have lots of options.

My special method for dicing onions with no tears!

You may even find yourself slicing vegetables, without any particular plan for using them, just because it’s fun!  As a matter of fact, that is exactly what happened to me one day when I was slicing onions using the shredder blade.  I created a bowl of lovely little onion rings, I had no plans to use them. Well, I didn’t want to waste them, so I put them in a sandwich bag and threw them in the freezer.  Later that evening I decided to make spaghetti sauce and I remembered the onions in the freezer.  That is when I made the greatest discovery about little frozen onion rings.  I decided I didn’t need to thaw the onions since they would get cooked in the sauce anyway.    So I started mashing on the frozen bag of onions to separate them and they just broke into little pieces. In a matter of seconds, I had a little bag of diced onions.   Think of it – not one tear was shed making those diced onions.  I used the Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer to make the little onion rings, froze them for a few hours and then mashed them with my hands into diced onions. Fabulous!!

It’s OK if you don’t get quite as excited as I did, but I hate chopping onions by hand because I always cry and I hate dragging out the big food processor to do the job because I don’t like washing it when I am done.  I found the Paderno Spiral Slicer is easy to clean. I take the blade out and rinse it under running water. If anything sticks to the sharp edges of the blade I use a toothbrush to remove it.  Rinse off the base and the vegetable holder and you’re done. Just rinse it as soon as you finish (don’t even wait 15 minutes) and cleanup is a breeze.

I leave my Paderno Spiral Slicer sitting on the counter and I find myself reaching for it nearly everyday to slice onions, apples, potatoes, zucchini or cabbage.  It is just so quick and easy and I don’t worry about cutting myself.

Here are a couple of quick and easy recipes for you to try.

 zucchini_slawZucchini Slaw

With a Spiral Vegetable Slicer, zucchini slaw is so easy.  Use zucchini that is firm and straight. Cut off the ends. I like to leave the peel to add color.  Put the shredder blade (1/8 inch) in the slicer.  Make a slice down the long side of the zucchini deep enough to go almost to the middle. That will make the spirals shorter and better for slaw. Be sure to watch my video to see how to easily adjust the length of the spirals.  Now you can add any another vegetables that you like such as carrots, onions, red cabbage or bell peppers. For the salad in the picture I spiralized zucchini, red cabbage and apple.  Then I added dried cranberries and walnuts and topped it with a poppy seed dressing. It was fast, easy and delicious.

fried_ applesFried Apples

Do you love apple pie, but don’t need the calories? Try this recipe. Take an apple, leave the peel on, and slice it using the flat blade of the spiral slicer. Melt one teaspoon of butter or coconut oil in a frying pan. Add the spiralized apple to the pan. Sauté for a few minutes on medium heat and then add about 1 teaspoon of brown sugar or use an unrefined sweetener like Turbinado sugar, Sucanat or honey.  If you use sweet apples like Fuji, you can use less sugar.  Generously sprinkle cinnamon on the apples.  Continue to cook until the apples are soft.  It won’t take long because the apples are thinly sliced. Then crumble a little graham cracker or granola on top and add a touch of whipped cream. It may not be 100% healthy, but it’s delicious and healthier than apple pie. Enjoy!

In my next post, I will add a video to show you exactly how to use the Paderno World Cuisine Spiralizer. It really is easy but the instructions that come in the box are not the greatest.  I want to share with you what I have learned by experimenting and having fun!

Tri-Blade Spiral Vegetable Slicer

padernoThe Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Spiral Vegetable Slicer is a hand-operated tool that quickly creates noodle-like strands of vegetables and fruits. It is often called a turning slicer or a “spiralizer”.

This Paderno Spiral Slicer model A4982799 is one of many products made and sold by Paderno World Cuisine to the restaurant and hospitality industry and to retail marketers for home use.

The frame of the spiral slicer and the plates that hold the stainless steel blades are made of a rigid, high impact plastic that is BPA free. The frame has 4 suction feet with tabs for easy release. Since it is a hand operated tool it does not require batteries or an AC outlet. The Paderno World Cuisine Tri Blade Spiral Slicer does indeed come with 3 sets of stainless steel blades:

  • the shredder blade for long spaghetti-like spiral strands (1/8 inch)
  • the chipper blade for long thicker spiral strands (1/4 inch)
  • the flat blade that produces long ribbon-like strands

I spiralized some vegetables with each blade to show you how they look. The first picture is a zucchini sliced using the shredder blade making noodles about the side of regular spaghetti. The center picture is a sweet potato cut with the chipper blade to look like curly fries. They are thinner though than the curly fries you would get at a restaurant. On the right is an apple cut with the flat blade. Vegetables that are firm and straight work the best.

The Paderno World Cuisine Spiral Slicer is backed by a one year warranty.
