OXO julienne peeler is my favorite. So easy and just toss in the dishwasher afterward.

Cheapest, just to see how you like them (or not to add a specialty gadget), would be to use a veggie peeler. They'll come out more like fettucini.

I used a regular potato peeler when I wanted to try them.

Now I got a zoodle veggie turner slicer from Amazon.

I have a Spirooli spiral slicer. It makes nice thin strands. When I want a flatter broader strand, I use my Y-shaped veggie peeler and just peel long strips til I get down to the seedy part - then I toss that out.

Okay, I can do that! I bought a 'Titan' peeler not long ago, I'll give that a spin. Charski? Is that spirooli the one by Joyce Chen? I think I saw it on amazon but the reviews were not good. Guess it's hard to use? That's why I thought I'd ask, I knew you guys would know!

No, it's not the Joyce Chen one - it's one that is now hard to find, unfortunately!

There is one on Amazon called a Paderno World Cuisine Spirooli Slicer that is just like what I have. You can probably get it elsewhere also, I just wanted to let you see what it looks like!

I have a spirooli slicer, don't know the brand, but I love to make zoodles and caroodles and radoodles and jicanoodles with it. The grandkids inspire experimentation with different hard veggies, and of course it makes you look like a gourmet chef to garnish something with them!

Definitely a plaything, but it does make many dishes more attractive and gives a texture we often miss as low-carbers.

Well, my spirooli , is on it's way. Doesn't take much arm twisting or enabling to get me to buy a new toy! Definitely want to try the zucchini noodles. I've read to not pre cook them. Just pour the hot 'whatever' sauce, soup on them... I imagine they can get a little soggy.. Thanks for the input!
