It’s easy to get kids to eat sweet fruits, but far more challenging to get them to eat their vegetables. But if the presentation is appealing, kids seem to believe that the food must taste better. Spiralizing vegetables is a fun way to encourage kids to eat healthier foods and the Hamilton Beach 4-in-1 Electric Spiralizer is just the appliance to achieve that goal. It’s one kitchen gadget that will add pizzazz, punch and playfulness to your palate.
Hamilton Beach 4-in-1 Electric Spiralizer
The 4-in-1 Electric Spiralizer comes with 4 cutting cones, a 6 cup bowl, a bowl lid, food pusher, cleaning brush, a user manual, and a free recipe e-book. All the parts are BPA free, dishwasher safe and easy to assemble.
Each cutting cone creates a different cut providing various thicknesses and textures. These include spaghetti, linguine, fettucini and ribbon. They will work on any fruit and vegetable that is firm to cut. Just pop your food into the food chute and press with the food pusher and you will have frilly and fluffy spiralized vegetables in seconds. Depending on the size of your food, you may have to cut it down to fit the chute. But, it will quickly and easily spiralizer any medium-sized food.
We test drove each of the four cutting cones on potatoes and here are the results starting with the Linguine cone.
The linguine cone is ideal for potatoes, zucchini, beets, carrots, onions, cabbage, yams, cucumbers, bell peppers, parsnips, sweet potatoes, apples and so many more.
The Fettuccini cut is a little thicker than the linguine cut, but can be used on the same vegetables. It’s a fun way to dress up a salad, casserole, hash, low-calorie pasta dishes and many more.
The spaghetti cone is great if you want long continuous noodles. It worked well on the potatoes. You can also create a fresh salad with zucchini, radishes, cucumber and beets.
The ribbon cut sliced the potatoes wide and slender. I couldn’t get this cone to create a continuous cut of potatoes, but the slices would be ideal for chips, casserole or even a stirfry.
Having the Hamilton Beach 4-in-one Electric Spiralizer in your home will save time preparing foods, add the fun factor to meals and have your family eating volumes of healthier foods.
