America's Test Kitchen rates the Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer as the best. Many positive consumer reviews on Amazon.com support this opinion. Testers at Good housekeeping favor the GEFU Spiralfix Spiral Cutter and praise its smoothly turning crank system.
One Green Planet also recommends the Paderno spiralizer as its number one pick, with the GEFU Spiralfix Spiral Cutter as a runner-up. Other recommendations include the Joyce Chen Saladacco Spiral Slicer, the compact Kitchen Active spiralizer and Breiftons Stainless Steel Spiral Slicer.
Good Housekeeping points out that consumers can achieve a similar effect without a spiralizer by thinly slicing the vegetable lengthwise, stacking the slices and slicing them into strands.
