Many cooks look for excuses to play with kitchen toys, and the Joyce Chen Spiral Slicer, or Spiralizer, is getting a close look in many kitchens, especially where raw foods are favoured. It's handy for making garnishes and slicing vegetables into a variety of shapes including strands, spirals and flat pieces. It's safer than the traditional mandolin since the cook's fingers can not come in contact with the blade.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Cut the vegetables to the required size for the final output. For instance, start with a straight-sided, 3.5-inch zucchini piece for zucchini noodles.

  2. 2

    Choose the right blade for the type of slicing required and set it into place by flipping the outside tab.

  3. 3

    Center the vegetable inside the container and lock the top by snapping it into place. Place the holding container on the bottom.

  4. 4

    Turn the handle clockwise while holding the unit down with your other hand.

  5. 5

    Empty the holding container when finished.
