With all the endless things you can do in the kitchen, you probably need a lot more tools and appliances than you have room for. Thankfully, if you already have a KitchenAid mixer and want to try your hand at spiralizing, the company has a spiralizer attachment that will help you save space.
If you’re a fan of KitchenAid items, you are going to love this new attachment.

First of all, if you already have a KitchenAid mixer at home and are a fan of all things KitchenAid, attachments or not, you are going to find the spiralizer attachment extremely handy. It comes in a nice snug box for easy storing when you’re not using it.
You also get to make sure that all parts are in place and not missing because each part has its own place within the box.
Second, it uses a motor to spiralize, core, and peel so it eliminates the need for your own muscle power unlike with many other spiralizers available in the market. You simply connect it to the power hub and follow the instructions on attaching the skewer as well as the blades to get the desired result you want for your fruits and vegetables.
Third, it’s relatively easy to use if you’re already used to KitchenAid attachments. Installing it and disassembling it is a breeze and once you’re done, you can pop the blades and the skewer in the dishwasher for cleaning.
The main body of the attachment should be cleaned by hand but it won’t be too messy in the first place to make it an inconvenient chore.
Fourth, since it uses the motor of your KitchenAid mixer, you get results fast with little effort on your part. You simply switch the device on and you get your peeled, sliced, cored, and spiralized fruits and vegetables ready for your disposal.
The price is not something to laugh about. The KitchenAid Spiralizer Attachment is a bit expensive, as with all KitchenAid things. However, you get the quality you pay for. Most of the parts are durable metal construction, but it does use some thin metals like aluminum and even plastic in some parts.
While using it is a breeze, setting it up might inconvenient for some people because you don’t just set up one attachment but several.
You attach the main body to the power hub of your standing mixer, attach the skewer, attach the clip, and then attach the blade. You then prepare your fruits and vegetables and attach it before you get to enjoy the no-hassle part.
This attachment’s peeling function might be handy, but it peels too thick on some fruits, particularly apple, so it feels like you’re wasting a big chunk of the fruit instead of being able to enjoy it in your salad.
There are a lot of things to consider with the KitchenAid Spiralizer Attachment. There are a lot of instructional videos on the brand’s website so it’s easy to follow and very encouraging. If you’re a KitchenAid standing mixer user, then this is a 5 out of 5 product for you.
If you don’t have a KitchenAid standing mixer and want to get in on the spiralizer trend, the Brieftons 5-Blade Spiralizer could be a better choice. This is a favorite among many who are just starting out because not only do you get a spiralizer, you also get a whole kit to get you started.
Aside from the standard 3 blade, you get 2 additional blades for a total of 5 so you get to enjoy 5 noodle shapes for your fruits and vegetables.
Using the Brieftons is very easy thanks to its detailed and colored manual plus the demo videos you can find online. You also get exclusive access to the Brieftons Spiral Slicer Recipe ebook and two more ebooks so you can enjoy healthier meals.
The construction is durable and the quality is good despite it being plastic. Blades are sharp so it requires little effort to get your food spiralized. Of course, this is manual operation compared to the motor operation of the KitchenAid Spiralizer Attachment.
