Paderno 4-Blade Spiralizer Pro

If you plan to do a lot of spiralizing, you might want a hand-crank standing model. Yes, they take up a lot of space and are difficult to clean, but they do the job quicker than their handheld counterparts.

It’s no surprise that the Paderno is the best countertop model: It has almost 9,000 reviews on Amazon and an average 4.5 star rating. It’s easy to assemble, secures to the countertop well with four sturdy suction cups, and includes four easily changeable blades that cut different sized flat ribbons or spiral noodles. As you grind down the vegetable, a clever tray slides forward to catch shreds. Nonetheless, you’ll still have to clean the whole thing after use, which is a pain—the blades shredded our dish scrubber.

On the bright side, we were able to get to the end of the vegetable in record speed and the Paderno’s sturdy build and power make shredding even dense vegetables a breeze. If you’re going to invest in a countertop version, we advise springing for the Paderno.
