Default Spiralizer

Does anyone have a spiralizer for making zucchini noodles that you would recommend? I'd consider stand-alone things or if there is a recommended attachment for a food processer (we have a Cuisinart) or attachment for a stand mixer.

Thanks!
Justin

I was trying to think of the contraption I had around the house to do this.
It is a part of my KitchenAid food processor.
It doesn't make long ones but it works.
Another Idea may be this one.

Not a fan of the KitchenAid stand mixer attachments dont have any but not a fan for some reason.
For one they are pricey for what they do.

We use the cheap ones shaped like an hour glass. They have a small row of cutting teeth and work just fine. Unless you're processing large amounts, I think this type would work for you. The brand is Veggetti.

We have a paderno one we picked up at HomeSense that is quite good. (Homesense is homegoods in the usa.)

Thanks everyone! Looking at things I think we're leaning toward the Spiralizer one, the couple different blades would be nice. Doing zucchini spaghetti with some of our zucchini would be a good way to eat more vegetables!

I have a slightly different one that EPawlick recommended, the https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It has 3 blades instead of 5. Seems like I always use the same blade anyway.

It's great to cut down on processed carbs, though, there are a lot of pieces to it that need cleaning after use.

Have you seen this site? Ali has some really great recipes.

'Word'. A cooking store had those near the entrance to play with. First introduced they were crazy expensive, like 25$. Fine idea for a garnish. I immediately, in my head, designed a tip for a drill.

I like this one. It fold up for storage. Easy to use. But i do prefer a mandolin as it does paper thin slices and fine noodles or a thicker cut chiffonade. Just not long spirals.

I saw the micro plane and one with a crank and another hand held at the store.
Got all jiddery.
I said to myself, 'self, you dont need one of these contraptions.
