When it comes to eating healthy I know that more often than not I am not quite hitting the mark. Especially when it comes to my love of pasta, I am a huge fan of big bowls of curly noodles drenched in meat sauce. On its own typically the meat sauce isn't too bad for my waistline it's the massive amount of carbohydrates I am chomping down on in the bottom of bowl in form of noodle. But, I mean seriously who is going to eat just a bowl of meat sauce? I know I am not so I try to look for alternatives. I have eaten whole wheat pasta and it's okay something I can do, but still wouldn't hold into a low or slow carb diet. So when given the opportunity to try out the Zucchini Noodle Maker by Vespiral I thought why not.
My first impression of the Vespiral Zucchini noodle maker had very little to do with what it can actually it do, it had everything to do with the overall quality of the product. With typical niche market products I find that most of the time they are very flimsy and cheaply assembled. You can usually tell by the overall feel of the plastic. The Vespiral Zucchini noodle maker had a solid construction without any rough plastic edges left from being ill molded or unfinished. That is a major plus that tells me that its a quality product to start. Then I moved it around to check the overall mechanism of it. With it having two specific size sides I turned it to feel the "smoothness" of the turns and it was very fluid.
Another thing I like about the Vespiral Zucchini noodle maker is that it's easy to clean. I just ran hot water through mine and let it dry, once the little nubby is out all you have to do is rinse off the small bits, but overall because it cuts so readily there is very little left on the noodle maker itself.
The one drawback we experienced was that the noodles require cutting otherwise become very long. This in itself isn't a deal breaker by any means because the quality of the noodle produced is very high. It is only that its awkward to use a separate cutting tool in order to end the noodles that are being produced. This would be a perfect noodle making product if it had the ability to be turned back and cleaved or if they had a slider to cut.
The only other drawback I saw was with zucchini noodles themselves, when cooked they tend to hold a lot of water. So make sure to drain them well, but the flavor is amazing and overall the meal turned out spectacular using them. I believe I may use this zucchini noodle maker until I literally wear it out, which may not happen for many years due to the quality. If you want to try this great noodle maker for yourself head over to Amazon and grab one right now!
