~Thank you to Brieftons for providing a Vertico Spiralizer for my review. This post contains affiliate links, in which I may receive compensation for your purchase.~
I am all about kitchen tools that make prep time quicker and easier, and that’s exactly what the Brieftons Vertico Spiralizer does. I’ve been craving sweet potato curly fries, but haven’t been in the mood to spiralize the sweet potatoes with my hand-held twist/turn spiralizer.
It’s so time consuming and takes too much effort. It’s not that I’m lazy, but simply that I have other things to do than spend all day on food prep. There already aren’t enough hours in the day and I’m making time for things that are more important than spiralizing sweet potatoes.
That’s why I was so excited when my Brieftons Vertico Spiralizer arrived. I knew I was going to satisfy my craving, while cutting the prep time way down! Out of the box, I gave everything a good wash, pieced it together (it was very easy) and got right to spiralizing.
As mentioned in the demo video, there are four settings to choose from. Setting one offers larger spirals, while setting four offers the thinnest spirals. For purposes of the sweet potato curly fries, setting three was just what I needed.
I love how quickly I was able to get all of the sweet potatoes spiralized. It literally took one to two minutes to do four potatoes versus up to 10 minutes with my hand-held twist/turn spiralizing tool.
With the Brieftons Vertico Spiralizer the size of the veggie doesn’t really matter, whereas for my hand-held tool, I would oftentimes have to cut the veggie down for it to fit. And of course that meant more work and a longer prep time. No thanks! I’d rather work smarter, not harder.
And when I’m done, cleanup is super easy too. I just toss it in the dishwasher!
Sooooo, about those curly fries!
