From zucchini noodles to cucumber noodles to spiralized sweet potatoes, a good spiralizer can help crank your dishes up a notch (literally)! Whether you are looking for a healthier alternative to pasta or just for something new, a spiralizer is a great addition to any kitchen. See the three models we are loving, and what our judges have to say about each, below!

This spiralizer was "SO easy to use & actually makes eating vegetables fun!" And you "can also use it for sweet potatoes & other veggies aside from zucchini. Perfect for making salads, noodles, & more!" -Public Lives, Secret Recipes

"The blades are held in a very secure, clear plastic container, which is very nice and helps prevent losing blades or being cut by them." -Lily the Wandering Gypsy

This spiralizer has "super sharp blades and a great crank system that keeps it from jamming and breaking when used on harder vegetables likes carrots and sweet potatoes!" -Lemons & Basil

Also "it's so light-weight, but very durable. The suction cups at the bottom really keeps this spiralizer in place so I can twist away, creating lots and lots of zoodles. Also, cleanup and storage is really easy. They thought of everything, even a cleaning brush! " -Namely Marly

"I would use this spiralizer when I’m looking to make a healthy alternative to traditional pasta. My favorite feature of this is the pink handles and easy to clean brush." -Ashton Keefe

"It was pretty straightforward to use, and I learned quickly that thicker, more uniform-in-size veggies work best... I also would love to make curly fries!" -The Usual Bliss
