Brieftons Spiral Slicer

I had been wanting to try having squash or zucchini as a pasta for a while now. They are both really mildly flavored and take on the flavor or whatever sauce or seasoning you choose to put on it. To get the squash to the consistency of pasta, you need a tool such as a julienne peeler or spiral slicer.

I tried a julienne slicer, but I was always worried I would cut my hand using it. So I was eager to try out the Briefton’s Spiral Slicer, which I was given to review.

The spiral slicer made decent pasta. To make squash pasta, insert the squash into the slicer and turn until the squash turns into ribbons. Boil water in a pot of water (about 3 cups for one squash), add the squash and cook for one minute, then drain. I also drizzle abut 2 tsp olive oil and 1/2 tsp dried garlic nuggets.

You can add any sauce and/or meats you like. I used diced up sausage.

The main issue I had it that once the vegetable got down to a certain point, it wouldn’t shred anymore, leaving a cone-shaped remnant.

Otherwise, it takes up less space than other such gadgets. Also, don’t bother putting it in the dishwasher. You need wash it by hand and use the included brush.

To see the Briefton’s spiral slicer in action and other Briefton’s products, visit the Briefton’s website. You can also buy it on Amazon!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. I went to Bed Bath and Beyond to look for something similar to this and they didn’t have anything like it! I’ve also wanted to try substituting or adding zucchini pasta into my regular pasta. I hardly use my dishwasher, so washing it by hand is not an issue to me. It’s cool it comes with it’s own cleaning brush. They should make an insert or something in order to get that last small piece! Thanks!
