Our Veggetti Review
Hand-operated zucchini pasta makers such as Veggetti are gaining popularity in recent years because they offer a healthy alternative to traditional pasta. Veggetti allows you to insert vegetables into either end, one for thicker “pasta” and the other for thinner pieces, which are then rotated against the blades to create pasta-like strands.
Although Veggetti is made of plastic, even the metallic-looking part of the handle, it performed surprisingly well, and the “pasta” it created was simple to make. The blades were sharp, requiring little force to operate. We found the thinner strands to be less intact and formed than the thicker pieces.
While pasta aficionados may cringe at the idea of “fake” pasta made from zucchini or squash, those looking for a healthy dish resembling pasta may find Veggetti a welcomed addition to their kitchens.
The only problematic aspect of Veggetti that we found was in cleaning the product, as the sharp teeth tend to hold onto food particles. Attempting to use a sponge resulted in the sponge being shredded. The best method we found for cleaning the Veggetti was using a soft kitchen dish brush. Veggetti does hold up in the dishwasher, but be sure that food particles are removed first as small bits of Zucchini skin may end up fusing to the Veggetti in the dishwasher.
Readers over on freakinreviews.com rate Veggetti three out of five stars out of nearly 70 votes (as of this writing).
