Can't quite believe I've just bought a spiralizer

But I have.... Read on here about the Lakeland one and went and bought it. Just like that! We've had a go, but the only carrot I could find was tiny so that didn't work. I did a sweet potato which came out very well. I will have to cook it and incorporate into my evening meal somehow! Teenage son was both delighted and furious that I had provided a distraction from his homework.

Yes, you definitely need to find some thick vegetables to use - the thin ones just snap !!

I love my spiraliser! Courgetti is my fav but I'll have a crack at sweet potato. How would you cook it? I'm thinking steaming it???

I've just microwaved it with a splash of water. Tastes fine!

Can anyone tell me what the long needle-like spike, hidden under one of the components, is for?

Not sure - I've checked mine and can't see anything like that. What kind do you have ?

Silly me. I've just looked at the instructions, apparently it's a metal skewer! For solo spiral meals, I guess.

I have a spiralizer easy store, the latest model in Lakeland. An excuse for them to charge a fiver more. It's dishwasher proof, apparently.

for my teenage son last night I spiralised potatoes, drizzled with olive oil, sprinked with garlic salt, pepper, grated parmesan, and baked in the oven for 20 mins, served with ham, eggs, peas. he was very happy!

i simultaneously did the same for me and husband with squash - chilli oil, salt, pepper, roasted again for 20 mins, served with leftover lentil bolognese (lakeland website recipe). really really good.
