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).

Bottom Line

Veggetti does a fine job of producing vegetable pasta from zucchini and squash as advertised. You may want to pick it up locally to avoid shipping charges and delays.

    Do not buy this over the phone – they will rip you off every whichway possible, and then it’s virtually impossible to contact them for a correction. Their phone system for purchasing these is all automated, and is even pushier than the worst human salesperson that I’ve ever run into. It took over half an hour to get the order placed, and even then I had to just hang up because it continued to push all kinds of other junk! Go to Walgreen’s, WalMart, Bed Bath & Beyond or some other local store.

    Did anyone notice that on Veggetti’s web site if you scroll all the way down to the very bottom…there’s a website fee of $1.00!!!! The product is $14.99 + $6.99 S&h + tax in 2states including NJ! Then if you want the additional things that’s $6.99 for p&h! But that website fee, although, only a dollar is the first time I’ve ever seen it! By the way although it says not in stores, I can get it from my local Bed,Bath & Beyond for 14.95; no extras offered but I have cook books and a good imagination!

    • We have reviewed a few other products that “sneak” in that mysterious “web fee.” Sure, it’s “only” a dollar, but it seems like an unexplained, unnecessary fee purely for the sake of giving them an extra buck.

  3. I just bought mine at Ross Dress for Less and it was only $9.99.

  4. Just tried mine last night and loved it. I did try to stick my fingers down in it to clean it–DON’T DO THAT! :) Also, my advice is to try sweet potatoes or yams–absolutely delicious! I bought one that was long and narrow–worked perfectly.

      I love sweet potatoes and the larger yams! As long as they’re not too fat! Think I’ll try it with parsnips! In a little place in Manhattan I had what was called a bird’s nest made of parsnips. They were very thin strips fashioned into a bird’s nest shape that had been very quickly deep fried! Well drained & no oil dripping off of it! Never could figure how to make & now with the Veggetti I can make them!

    If you want long carrot strips, you will want to use large carrots. small carrots make pretty small strips

  6. Bought the veggetti where I work. Have been excited about it since I first saw the product. It is fabulous!!! I may even go as far as “it’s better than actual pasta!* great way to keep healthy and enjoy a good meal!

  7. Bought Veggetti at Bed Bath and Beyond….with the 20% off coupon itr was under 10.00..got home and tried it with zucchini. I thought that the veg pasta was an exceptional and di and dlish alternative to regular pasta. Tossed it in a pan with a little evoo and fresh tomatoes…sauted for a few minutes and added grated cheese…yummy. Easy to use, works great.

  8. Just bought this. Was skeptical, but it worked great and I love it!
    Ease of use was outstanding, only downfall is the amount of veggie you are left with at the end where you can’t twist down into the gadget. Left about 1- 1 1/2″ of vegetable wasted, unless you slice and use separately.

  9. Because Dreamfields pasta has finally corrected its false claim of 5net carbs I began looking for another way to have low carb pasta . Saw Veggetti at Walmart and decided to give it a try. Made zucchini noodles, sautéed in a little olive oil, add pasta sauce and voila a great alternative to pasta! Very satisfying and tasty! Will get a lot of use out of this new to me kitchen gadget!

  10. Stumbled on to Veggetti at my least favorite store, Walmart, and was curious about it, since I know the nutritional value of squashes and more veggies, but have a hard time getting enough! I was quite stunned when the darned thing actually worked! Not only do I have a great substitute for pasta (I don’t eat grains of any kind), but I have used the veggies in soups, stews, frittatas, omelets, and just steamed with butter and garlic! I’ve used it on zucchini, yellow squash, Chayote, Daikon, and carrots. and absolutely love it! I can see where it will come in handy this summer for making veggie “sprinkles” (chopping the strands to tiny “bits”) on my salads! Yes, cleaning is a nuisance but just using a soft brush gets the job done! I’m not keen on all the “As Seen on TV” items, most of which are worthless, but I am lovin’ this little gadget!

    How do you justify saying $14.99 and then charging $7 for a free item and get up to $29.95? That is scam advertising, no?

    • Unfortunately that is common practice for As Seen on TV marketing. That’s why we always recommend buying locally.

    Though the tool sounds good, and yes I am very willing to try it; though I will NOT purchase it from WALGREEN’S; the commercial might do better if they STOPPED lying about the calorie, fat and carb totals in pasta. First off; 1 serving of plain pasta does NOT have a whopping 800 calories… that HAS to be for about 6 servings all together. Also; though it is granted that there are 45 grams of carbs in a single serving of pasta; to get around that a person can always use a very, VERY delicious substitute pasta called Dreamfields. Though the carbs listed are the same amount; they are made in a special way so that you are only affected by 5 grams. I am personally TIRED of the lies in commercials…Do they REALLY think we consumers are THAT DUMB; REALLY?!?!?

      No one eats 1 serving of plain pasta. They are referring to what consumers *think* is 1 serving of plain pasta. If you measure the same volume of pasta with the same volume of “pasta” made from a Veggetti, the calories would be extraordinarily different. The nutrient component would be extraordinarily different, too.

    I just purchased the Veggetti at Walgreen’s for $14.99. I was skeptical, but it worked GREAT! I have detested zucchini since I was a child, and prepared in this manner, it was absolutely delicious. I found the device well made, and very easy to use and clean. It was very simple to quickly take two zucchini and shred them into linguini-like noodles. I shredded them into a Pyrex bowl, covered with plastic wrap and microwaved for 3 minutes. The result was an al dente zucchini “noodle”. I tossed it with 1 teaspoon of butter, 1 tablespoon of grated Romano cheese, freshly cracked black pepper and red pepper seeds – very good! Next time I will add garlic to the mix, and also try it with a marinara sauce. This will definitely get a lot of use in my kitchen, as I try to limit my pasta intake!
