The OXO Good Grips Spiralizer performed the best during our tests. The sharp stainless steel blades cut both firm and delicate vegetables with ease, creating long noodles that don’t break apart. It comes with the three most necessary blade attachments and a covered compartment in which each can be safely stowed away. Thanks to the sturdy base and unique suction design, it won’t wobble while you work. And because it’s so easy to use, we’re confident it will get regular play in your kitchen.

Spiralizer Five-Blade Vegetable Slicer

Spiralizer Five-Blade Vegetable Slicer

A cheaper option with less cutting ability

This tabletop model does a good job at cutting vegetable noodles, but it creates more fragments than our top pick.

Buying Options

$23 from Amazon

The Spiralizer Five-Blade Vegetable Slicer does a good job at cutting most vegetables, but its blades aren’t as sharp as the OXO’s, so some vegetables break into fragments. The suction feet on the Spiralizer Five-Blade aren’t quite as secure as the OXO’s lever-activated suction. Also, the Spiralizer Five-Blade doesn’t have a separate compartment to store all of the blades. (Two can be stored in slots beneath the base and another in the cutting position.) Our testers liked the extended lip of the base, which helped to catch and guide the cut vegetable noodles onto a cutting board.

OXO Good Grips Handheld Spiralizer

OXO Good Grips Handheld Spiralizer

A handheld spiralizer that fits in a drawer

This inexpensive handheld spiralizer has a single blade and requires more elbow grease, but it makes sturdy vegetable noodles that don’t break apart.

Buying Options

$16 from Amazon
$15 from Bed Bath & Beyond
$15 from The Container Store

If you only want to spiralize vegetables occasionally, we recommend the OXO Good Grips Handheld Spiralizer. This handheld spiralizer only comes with one built-in blade and no other attachments, but it cuts sturdy noodles that hold their shape. It isn’t as easy to use as a standing model and requires more effort, but it takes up less space and can be conveniently stored in a kitchen drawer. Our testers found it easier to wash than the standing models we tested.
