OMG I just received my brand new Spirooli in the mail today and I was so excited to try it out. I made zucchini pasta, and it was SOOOOO COOOOOOOOL! I was so impressed with how the zucchini came out, some strands were amazingly long! Just thought I'd share with everyone :)


  • AVL- Where did you order it from and if you don't mind asking, how much did you pay?

  • AVLAVL Raw Newbie

    KMcR- I go it on this website that my brother sent me


    The Spirooli cost $49.99 + tax + shipping, which came out to a price in the low 60s (I can't remember the exact price). I ordered it on Monday and it got here today, so it was pretty quick. I haven't tried all the blades yet, just the one with the smallest holes, which made the zucchini spaghetti. I kept making more and more and more, I ate 5 zucchini tonight (plus other stuff)!

    Congrats!!! I recently recieved my spiralizer in the mail but i have not had a chance to try it out yet. Perhaps tomorrow! Have fun with your new gadget.


  • AVL- Thanks for the info! I will put it on my "to buy" list:)

    AVL, your spirooli is a high tech machine!!! i love it.

    if i want veggie pasta, i just use a regular peeler. i would like to get a spiralizer though. i'm just totally broke.

  • AVLAVL Raw Newbie

    joannabanana- I'm pretty broke too, but I put it on my Visa (which I never use), so I won't know how broke I am until next month!!!

    I used to use a veggie peeler too, but I thought that I would invest in something a little better, and boy does it make a difference. Today at lunch my coworker was so amazed to see my zucchini spaghetti :)

  • AVLAVL Raw Newbie

    No Problem KMcR!

  • I have had GREAT results with a $20 saladacco spiralizer for years now. I have 2 of them. Even make pasta for crowds.

    Would upgrade to spirouli if I knew it was as easy to assemble and clean.

  • AVLAVL Raw Newbie

    American Yogini, the Spirooli is not that hard to clean and not all at hard to assembly. Hey, you are talking to a person who can't even assemble Kinder Surprise toys! The only tricky parts to clean are the blades, but I'm sure it's the same thing with the Saladacco. But I think that you can put them in the dishwasher.

  • I've been researching the spirooli etc. and can't decide which one to get, plus the models seem slightly different here in the UK....also: can you use the saladacco spiral slicer to make zucchini noodles? I can't figure out from the pictures I've seen how that one works.

    A bit off topic but anyway: kitchen equipment such as blender, dehydrator etc. seems more expensive in the UK when you convert the $ etc. but I find the actual food ( produce, supplements, nuts, etc. ) is cheaper in the UK.

    I've lived in the US for over 7 years, just relocated two years ago and have been back to visit family several times and each time I was stunned at how expensive vegetables, fruit etc. are (I was mostly eating SAD when I lived there and have turned vegetarian/vegan/raw (in that order) since then).

  • Just got mine and I AM HOOKED! Super easy to master, assemble, use, disassemble and clean. I did carrots and zucchini noodles. The texture will alleviate some boredom and make for fun sharing with others. YUM! Highly recommend!!! I got mine from Amazon for $37 plus shipping.

  • AVLAVL Raw Newbie

    I love mine too! I use it everyday. But I was wonderning if anyone had a good suggestion on how to clean the "teeth" that hold the vegetable? I find that there is always some residue that I can't get off.

  • I'll be receiving my "World Cuisine Tri-Blade" in the mail today!!! I can hardly wait! I've been craving Zucc. pasta and pesto. I also just came across a really fantastic Pistachio-Pesto recipe. I'll post that in the recipes forum for those interested

  • evergreenevergreen Raw Master

    hi AVL,

    you may find it helpful to use a scrub brush, just with a little soap under running water to clean the "teeth" and blades.

    I use a long handled one, or a nail brush.

    this site has a great price for anyone looking to buy one


    happy spiralizing everyone!

  • AVLAVL Raw Newbie

    Thanks evergreen, I'll try that!

  • evergreenevergreen Raw Master

    you are very welcome:)

  • I clean mine with a toothbrush, which is very handy in the kitchen for all sorts of things - juicer, food processor blade, mason jar threads, etc.

  • AVLAVL Raw Newbie

    Oooh, toothbrush! Never thought of that! Thanks, I'll try it!

  • i love the Spirooli!! i actually got mine thru craigslist... brand new for $25.... the lady i bought it from was going to go raw, but decided not to... and she never used it! still had the plastic covers and everything!

    so try craigslist! :o)

  • Hi everyone, Nice to meet you all.

    Does anybody know where to by the spirooli upgrade (extra part) to make tornado potato? Thanks
