GEFU is arguably best known in the UK for the Original Spirelli spiralizer
, which works with the same principle as a pencil sharpener, allowing the user to transform carrots, courgette and other vegetables into ribbons for salads, sides and stir fries.
If you're looking for a unique way of preparing vegetables, we recommend taking a look at the GEFU TRANSFORMA.
Our top tips for spiralizing veggies:
1. There will always be a small amount of vegetable left over after spiralizing. We like to save this for soups and smoothies.
2. The fresher your vegetable, the better the resulting spirals/ribbons will be.
3. For a naughty twist on an otherwise healthy product - try making curly fries.
Which is the best Spiralizer?
Due to increasing popularity, there is now a range of GEFU spiralizers. If you're looking for a robust all-rounder, the Spiralfix is the way to go. If you want a smaller, space saving option, the Spirelli would probably be best for you. However, it really comes down to what types of veggies you wish to spiralize. The GEFU Spirelli spiralizer is great for carrots, courgette and other long vegetables. If you wish to spiralize beetroot, potatoes or other more round shaped vegetables you will need the GEFU Spiralfix.
What is the difference between the Original Spirelli and the Spirelli 2.0?
The only functional difference between the two GEFU Spirellis is the Vegetable Holder Attachment, which serves two purposes; the first being that it allows more efficient use of the vegetable because it pushes the vegetable further down into the Spirelli than you would be able to with your hands. The Spirelli Veg Holder also protects your fingers from the sharp blades whilst spiralizing your veggies. From Summer 2016 a separate "Veg Holder" attachment is available for the Original Spirelli - so that you won't need to buy a new Spirelli 2.0 if you want the attachment for your Original Spirelli.
