what kitchen implement

Should I use to make the Zucchini noodles? Also, if you guys could recommend brands, that would be great....

Also, advice on technique...I'm at best an amateur cook.

I have the Spiralizer that you put on the countertop and has a crank but there are many versions including a hand held one. Google spiral vegetable slicers and you will find a ton!

A little belated, but thank you, everyone! I think I'll just go for the spiral slicer at wal-mart. That way, not much money out if it sits there and I don't use it. It would just be so much cheaper to buy zucchini spiral slice, and pan fry or bake or whatever instead of buying miracle noodles...plus, I think the zucchini will taste better.

I just use an OXO julienne peeler. Works quickly and goes in the utensil bin in the dishwasher!

They still have the Vegetti at Bed, Bath, and Beyond which is cheaper if you have the $5 coupon. Even the 20% off coupon it would be cheaper. I just saw it on Saturday.

I use my Paderno Spiralizer frequently. The trick is to find as straight zucchini as you can, and center it on the turning plates.

Yes, I agree. Do you also find that the really "fat" zucchini don't work as well? I noticed when I used a bigger one the middle near the seeds was too mushy and it didn't line up properly in the center so I got a whole bunch of seedy mush! Maybe it was just the one I tried (from my MIL's garden) but from now on I'm sticking with the straight thinner ones.

Anywhere that has As Seen On TV items will have the one Walmart has. Walgreens also.
