I’ve always tried living a healthy life, but about a year ago, after a doctor’s visit, I learned I was pre-diabetic and decided to look into more healthy cooking. I love eating salads and simple cooked veggies, so when I was invited to experiment with and write a Brieftons 5 blade spiralizer review, I was very excited. Who doesn’t love free products to try?
I used and reviewed Brieftons Manual Small Food Chopper a coupe weeks ago and it’s nice to work with another one of their products. Here’s the box before I opened it.
The Brieftons 5 Blade Spiralizer comes with 5 blades that can do lots of things:
- Angel-hair (2mm ultra thin) pasta
- Finely-shredded (3mm-wide) pasta
- Crudely-shedded (6mm-wide) pasta
- Ribbon-like pasta
- 10mm wide x 6mm thick curly fries
- many more
Brieftons 5 Blade Spiralizer Features
Brieftons 5-Blade Spiralizer: With 3 Exclusive Recipe eBooksHere are some of the features of the 5 Blade Brieftons Spiralizer:
- made from high quality, 100% BPA free food grade, durable reinforced ABS plastic and stainless steel
- it is very compact, with a small opening for 2 of the blades, so you can easily store it
- has suction cups that fix it to the surface you’re working on (this is great: it lets you crank up the handle instead of worrying about holding the spiralizer still)
- it’s machine washable, so cleaning it is a breeze
I wanted to make zucchini noodles, so once I opened and assembled the spiralizer, I cranked it up and in just a few minutes, I had a plateful of thin, noodle like zucchini.
Baked Zucchini Noodles
I used a yellow zucchini and 2 green ones, and here they are , ready to eat (or cook), in just a few minutes.
I decided I wanted to cook my zucchini pasta, so I spread them in an oven tray, and stuck in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, I stirred them a bit, and at this time I added some salt and pepper, and put them back in the oven for 15 minutes.
When I checked, they were a little bit too juicy for my taste, so I turned off the oven and left them in there for another 15 minutes. Here’s the final result!
My baked zucchini noodles were delicious on their own, but they’d be great with some garlic cashew sauce, or simply some red pasta sauce if you’re in a hurry.
I’m excited to try more things in the near future. I can’t wait to try making apple chips in the near future: YUM!
If you’d like your own Brieftons 5 Blade Spiralizer, I recommend it wholeheartedly: it will, save you lots of time and you’ll have fun trying new things. Even your kids will want to help cook 😉
