Possible Vegetable Patterns

This video shows the possible types of cuts you can achieve with the spiralizer:

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. 5mm or 5.5mm 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 the Spiralizer

This video shows how to clean the spiralizer after use:

NOTE:

  • 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 the top rack only, as hot water can warp the suction pad and prevent it 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.

How to Re-assemble the Spiralizer

The product comes pre-assembled and ready to use. However you may want to take it apart to clean the individual components, or to store the product away more compactly. To re-assemble it, please follow the instruction in this video:

For Left-Handed People

If you are left handed, fear not! You can still use the spiralizer to achieve equally great results.

This video shows how to do that with an earlier version of the spiralizer, however the concept is the same:

Tips

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

  • Choose thick, firm and straight vegetables. Produce selection is paramount for the machine to work correctly.
  • It is important to purchase FIRM (not soft) zucchini, and not “jumbo” ones that tend to have a lot of seeds. If purchasing cucumbers, FIRM English Cucumbers work best. You want to purchase produce that is shaped like a log and straight (not curved).
  • Place the vegetable straight in the middle of the vegetable holder, making sure it does not lean heavily toward any particular side.
  • Apply a consistent forward pressure to the turning handle while rotating it, which will ensure the vegetable will come into constant contact with the blade.
  • 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.
