How we test

Overall score includes:

  • Performance (60%)
  • Ease of use (40%)

To test performance, we put spiralised courgettes, carrots and kumara. For models that could, we spiralised apples but didn’t include it in our final score because not all models had this feature.

For each vegetable, we rated the appearance of the spirals based on evenness, length, whether the strands separated properly and whether strands broke during spiralising.

Our ease of use assessment looked at: stability on the workbench or in the hand, changing/assembling the blades, ease of storing blades, operating the levers/cranks, comfort during use, ease of cleaning and safety features.
