Due to the large number of vegetables that the spiralizer can be used for, it’s not possible to have a definite list of vegetables that should be spiralized for each blade. However the general rules of thumb are:

  • Softer vegetables can use any blade
  • For harder vegetables such as sweet potato or butternut squash, we recommend the use of a bigger blade e.g. 3mm or 6mm blades. This is because a smaller blade will have more blade teeth which may cause more resistance when used with a harder vegetable
  • Vegetables with layers or a hollow inside e.g. onions, cabbages, bell peppers should use the Flat blade

How to Clean

  • Wash the spiralizer under running tap water. Use a mild detergent if necessary. Use a brush to clean between the blade teeth if necessary.
  • Hand washing is recommended to prolong the life of the product.
  • If washed in a dishwasher, use cold water only, as hot water can warp the suction cups and prevent them from working correctly.
  • Sometimes carrots may leave stains on the spiralizer’s plastic. If that happens, try one of the 2 methods below:
    • The easier method: Use baking soda to clean the stain.
    • The most effective method: Mix a paste of baking soda and dish soap, scrub it on the stain, let it sit for 20 minutes, scrub it again, and rinse it thoroughly. Repeat as necessary until the stain is removed.

Tips

For best results when using the Brieftons 5-Blade Spiral Slicer, please:

  • Choose thick, firm and straight vegetables.
  • Place the spiral slicer on an even, flat surface, and make sure to push down on the 4 corners until the suction cups are all secured against the surface.
  • Place the vegetable straight in the middle of the vegetable holder, making sure it does not lean heavily toward any particular side.
  • Twist the vegetable with a consistent forward motion.
  • For vegetables with a skin, peeling the skin off will make it easier to spiralize them.
  • For harder vegetables, pre-boiling them first will make it easier to spiralize them.
