The questions and criteria in the spiral cutter test
In the contributions to the pictured products, you will find among other things the answers to the following questions:
Quality and workmanship of the product
Application and functionality
This category includes various individual factors, such as the stability of the spiral cutter. This ultimately led to conclusions as to which material was used and how high-quality the production was. Of course, we also take exactly the processing of the product under the magnifying glass. This is especially important in the usual plastic housings. Because as you may already know from various other kitchen utensils, one or the other careless act can happen during the whole confusion during cooking. Of course, it would be a shame if such poorly assembled components did not last long or the device could break down quickly. In addition, the sharpness of the corresponding cutting blades in this category is also important. This, of course, just as important for the end result, as these should wear out as little as possible and cut any kind of fruit or vegetables effectively.
Accordingly, we take a special look in the spiral cutter test that the design of the “Spiralizer” is of high quality and durable .
The showcase example of a high quality and extremely durable is the ” OXO Good Grips 3-Blade Tabletop Spiralizer ” Lurch brand . Accordingly, this is also our favorite among the devices with a crank in the spiral cutter test.
Application and functionality
The next point in the spiral cutter test is about the practicality and functionality of the product. On the one hand, on the one hand, of course, first of all the consideration of the included accessories. Then we check the functionality and result.
For this purpose, we check whether the eventual leftovers exist and how well they fulfill their function. Furthermore, we check the ergonomics of the whole device to check how pleasant and long-term the application is. Also relevant is the type and the presence of finger protection in the application.
Although the risk of injury when spiral cutter is not very high, but some models include a kind of finger protection included. Especially since one often tends to be distracted or not paying close attention to the ease of use, we find this to be appropriate and meaningful.
A few high-quality spiral cutters with crank have a collecting container. On the one hand, this is perfectly suitable in case you want to process larger quantities of fruits or vegetables in corresponding noodles. But it is also perfect for conveniently storing leftovers or pre-prepared noodles in the fridge.
The next point in the spiral cutter test is relatively self-explanatory, because where cut and where fruit and vegetables is reduced arise also always leftovers. Accordingly, these residues inside and outside the unit are subsequently cleaned or disposed of. It may be more or less tricky depending on the processing of the device to get to the appropriate places. Thus we are in this category practical effort it is needed to clean the spiral cutter after the appropriate application again.
Price-performance ratio and conclusion
Finally, we do our spiral cutter test, of course, with a corresponding comparison of price and performance. And this is followed, of course, by our conclusion, which once again deals with the most important points of the product and finally points out who this product is suitable for. And how our personal rating for the above categories turned out.
( For the very impatient – our favorite in the spiral cutter test what the price / performance ratio is in terms clearly the “OXO Good Grips 3-Blade Tabletop Spiralizer “)
The different types of equipment in the spiral cutter test simply explained
In order to make the best purchasing decision, it is of course important that the corresponding spiralizer also serves its purpose and provides the perfect handling for you. Accordingly, we have tested the three different types of models in our spiral cutter test . Thus, one differentiates namely between spiral cutter with crank, the strip cutter without a crank and the simplified Julienne kitchen peeler.
Spiral cutter with crank
As the name suggests, these devices can be operated with the appropriate hand crank. Accordingly, these devices take up a little more space . In this type of construction, the vegetables, or the food finally to be processed, are impaled by the pointed connecting rod. Then , using the outer crank of the corresponding handle, you move the inwardly inclined blades in a rotational movement about their own axis. Through the appropriate crank movement , the device then cuts your favorite foods into perfect strips or noodles.
The corresponding simple use of the crank allows a particularly pleasant and effective food processing. Accordingly, you need neither overly much force particularly a lot of time to prepare for a larger amount of strips or noodles. In addition, these models are available in horizontal or vertical design as needed. We also found it particularly appealing that the devices from manufacturers such as Lurch are still supplied with attachments . These allow you to customize the width of the strips to suit your needs .
Advantages and disadvantages of a spiral cutter with crank
This type of spiral cutter is especially recommended for vegetarian or vegan persons, who would like to process vegetables or corresponding fruit regularly and in larger quantities . Otherwise, this type of spiral cutter is of course also perfect for anyone who likes to pre-cook his meals, cooks regularly for several people or just tends to prepare vegetable strips or vegetable noodles.
However, with these models, it should be noted that the cheaper options, which are primarily constructed with lightweight plastic parts, have problems with handling harder foods . Thus, the slicing of potatoes, radishes or kohlrabi can sometimes be a bit difficult. In addition, the device must often be taken apart for effective cleaning, which is not particularly difficult, but for more comfortable people anyway worth mentioning.
Spiral cutter without crank
This model will probably put them back a little in the school time , in which one or the other pencil or colored pencil had to be sharpened . Because with the strip cutters without a crank , you also press the corresponding food into the template and then turn it. The lower position of the cutter is located in a correspondingly sharp blade, which the fruit, vegetables or food quasi by the rotation in a long strip cuts.
Due to the simple yet ingenious design of these products, these models are particularly easy to clean. Furthermore, it can also handle the sturdy construction and the extended extra sharp blade easily with particularly hard and crisp foods. Accordingly, these devices are very durable, space-saving and easy to transport. With a price of just 12 euros on average, the spiral cutter without crank are also particularly favorable.
In contrast to the simple and ergonomic use of the spiral cutter with crank, the application of this product is a bit more laborious. On the one hand, it takes longer of course to turn the food almost by hand through the device. On the other hand, it is also far more exhausting, because you have to turn the vegetable strips usually manually yourself. In addition, of course, that I rather spherical food difficult as apples, potatoes and eggplant until not with the device edit leave.
Our final opinion :
Without any doubt, we were most convinced by the use of a device with a crank in the spiral cutter test . These devices are easy to handle, allow easy processing of multiple foods, and ultimately provide even and delicious stripes.
