How to Use a Regular Veggetti
Grip the Veggetti on the shiny silver plates on either side of the tool. Insert the vegetable of choice, usually a zucchini.
Place the opening of the Veggetti over a bowl so that the zoodles fall into the bowl as they are spiralized.
Simply twist the vegetable continuously until the vegetable is complete spiralized. Repeat as needed!
How to Use a Veggetti Pro
Turn the suction switch on before using it. This keeps the base attached to the counter.
Choose one of the 5 types of blades you want to use depending on the type of noodle you want. Insert the blade into the Veggetti Pro. From there, follow these steps:
- Insert the vegetable you want to spiralize into the opening in the Veggetti Pro.
- Ensure that the vegetable is trimmed at either end.
- One end of the vegetable should touch the side of the handle while the other end of the vegetable should be placed against the blade.
- Ensure that you have inserted the vegetable into the spiked arm of the Veggetti Pro.
- As soon as you insert the vegetable firmly, turn the knob of the machine with one hand while holding the green handle on the Veggetti it with the other hand.
- Turn the handle until the vegetable is completely spiralized.
- Repeat as needed!
The Veggetti Pro, when used correctly, should produce perfectly spiralized vegetable noodles without much effort!
