Key Features: Veggetti Pro Spiralizer Review
The Veggetti Pro Spiralizer is a revamped version of the original Veggetti spiralizer and comes with a few added features. It can now take bigger loads of fruits and veggies than its predecessor making it ideal for spiralizing food for parties and family gatherings.
It comes with three interchangeable blades that transform your veggies into thick noodles, thin noodles and ribbons. Veggie ribbons are great for jazzing up terrines and crudités while thin noodles are ideal for Asian-inspired “rice noodle” dishes. Thick noodles made by the Veggetti Pro can handle heavier sauces like vegan bolognese or a vegetable ragout so as far as blades go the Veggetti has got you covered.
The non-slip suction base means that the Veggetti is sturdy and reliable and can handle spiralizing harder root vegetables like sweet potatoes so you don’t have to worry about it slipping all over the counter while you work. There is an internal blade storage unit that keeps blades safely in place while not in use and each blade is clearly labeled “thick cut” or “thin cut,” making it easy to alternate between blades.
All three stainless steel blades are ultra sharp so you shouldn’t have any problems slicing through tougher root vegetables, however, do bear in mind that this spiralizer was not designed to tackle very large veggies.
Design and Build Quality
The Veggetti Pro is small and sleek, which makes it ideal for storage as it can be put away in almost any drawer or kitchen cabinet. It breaks apart and can be put back together easily and efficiently.
There have been reports that the Veggetti cannot take very large vegetables so if you want to be able to spiralize butternut squash, turnips, swede, celeriac or even very large zucchinis then be aware that the Veggetti Pro will not be able to accommodate them. It can handle small and medium sized fruits and vegetables with great ease so if you don’t have ambitions to use large vegetables then this should not be an issue.
There is an internal storage unit for blades that are not being used and the overall build and design is robust yet sleek and attractive. If you don’t want to dissemble your spiralizer after every use then this model is sleek and attractive enough to keep fully intact.
The green hand crank is extra durable and built to a very high standard making it easy to turn while you spiralize your veggies.
The pronged vegetable holder has been built to ensure that fruits and veggies don’t fall out of place.
Ease of Use
The Veggetti Pro is very user-friendly thanks to the ultra sharp blades that make it easy to cut through a wide assortment of fruits and veggies.
The large hand crank makes it easy and comfortable to grip without fear of it slipping out of place. This works in tandem with the pronged vegetable holder that holds food taut.
The efficiency and sturdiness of the design make it easy to get through large batches of fruits and vegetables at a very fast rate.
How Easy is it to Clean?
The Veggetti Pro, including all four blades, is dishwasher safe making it ideal for fuss-free clean ups. It can also be washed under a running tap. While no spiralizer is as easy to clean as say a spoon, this unit is designed well enough to make it as hassle free as it possibly could be.
Is It Reliable?
The Veggetti Pro is sturdy and robust, with extra sharp blades that make spiralizing fruits and veggies a doozy.
The extra strong hand crank does most of the work for you and is one of its best features. The well-designed hand crank makes for an extremely fast turnover of spiralized fruits and veggies so if you’re making large batches of food the Veggetti Pro is a good, solid choice.
The spiralizer consistently cuts food into uniform spirals that range from thin spaghetti style noodles, thick fettuccine noodles and wide ribbons that can be used to garnish salads or turned into apple rings or veggie chips. If you want a spiralizer with a few more blade fittings then you may wish to consider purchasing another spiralizer.
If you want a spiralizer that assembles and disassembles easily then the Veggetti Pro makes a good option because it is one of the easiest models to put together quickly while also being attractive enough to store on the kitchen counter.
How Does it Compare?
Due to the tabletop nature of the Veggetti, we've compared it vs. similar models. Many of these are also similar to the Inspiralizer which we did a full review on.
If you want to check out some smaller and different alternatives a handheld spiralizer might be worth considering.
For people who need to do mass prep, the Veggie Bullet is a great choice as it takes a lot of the elbow grease out of spiralizing.
The Veggiespize spiralizer comes with 5 blades that can spiralize your fruits and veggies in many different ways. There are blades for creating angel hair pasta, curly fries, lasagna noodles, ribbons and standard noodles. This gives it a slight edge over the Veggetti Pro because you have a wider choice of blades.
The Veggiespize is a potato lover’s dream and is a great buy for people wishing to whip up different kinds of potato dishes. This model comes with a special curly fry blade that can help transform sweet potatoes and potatoes into curly fries. The lasagna noodle blade can be used to make potato chips. There is no curly fry or lasagna noodle blade on the Veggetti Pro, which limits your recipe options if you want to be really creative and inventive.
The Veggiespize spiralizer is a tad on the bulky side so if you’re not planning on using your spiralizer that often or if you’re tight on space then you may wish to go with a more ergonomic design like the Veggetti Pro. The Veggetti Pro is less bulky and easier to dissemble, however, if your priority is to have more blades then you can still dissemble the Veggiespize if space is an issue.
Like the Veggetti Pro, the Veggiespize spiralizer comes with a central blade storage chamber and features suction cups on the bottom making it sturdy and wobble-free. If you don’t like washing up then note that it is not suitable to wash in the dishwasher.
The KitchenAid spiralizer comes in a sleek, ultra modern design that would make an attractive addition to any kitchen. It features a versatile blade system that comes with four quick-change blades. The blades include a spiral peeling blade, a spiral slice blade, a medium spiralizer blade and a fine spiralizer blade.
This spiralizer is unique because it attaches to the power hub on any standard KitchenAid stand mixer model. It uses the power of a motor to operate the attachment rather than being powered by a hand crank like most standard spiralizers. If the idea of using a hand crank does not appeal to you then you may wish to consider getting this spiralizer as it does all the work for you.
There have been reports that the KitchenAid spiralizer cannot tackle large, heavy vegetables such as butternut squash or celeriac. It does handle fruits and veggies like zucchinis, potatoes and apples like a charm, though, so if you’re not planning on spiralizing butternut squash then this may be the spiralizer to go for.
The KitchenAid spiralizer is an obvious choice for people who already own a KitchenAid mixer as the blade attachments fit right onto the mixer. The space-saving benefits are a plus as are the motor-powered blade attachments. If you don’t already own a KitchenAid stand mixer and don’t plan on getting one then you are better off going with a manual spiralizer.
The premium metal construction is dishwasher safe and it comes with a 1-year limited warranty.
Brieftons Vertico Spiralizer is a top-load spiralizer that works like most conventional spiralizers except that it has gravity do most of the work for you.
As far as designs go, this spiralizer is about as sleek as they come, taking up very little room in a cabinet or on the kitchen counter. It is also easier than the Veggetti to disassemble for clutter-free storage.
It may look a little flimsier than most side-load spiralizers, however, this spiralizer is extremely robust and sturdy and can tackle all your spiralizing needs with no problems.
It comes with 4 stainless steel blades that can be used to cut veggies in a variety of different ways. There are blades for fettuccine, spaghetti, ribbons and papardelle noodles.
This spiralizer is equipped to spiralize medium/large veggies although it will not be able to handle veggies that are both round and large (like celeriac). Large zucchinis and butternut squash shouldn’t be a problem, though. This makes the Breiftons Vertico spiralizer better at handling a wider variety of fruit and veggie sizes than the Veggetti Pro.
The downward facing prongs make it easier to hold veggies in place and the hand crank works well, although is not as robust as the Veggetti Pro hand crank.
Extra strong suction cups on the feet stop it from sliding all over the counter and you get a full money-back guarantee for added peace of mind.
