A spiralizer is a must-have item in your kitchen for its versatility, creativity and nutritional benefits. The Oster® Electric Spiralizer turns healthy vegetables into delicious spirals in seconds, unleashing the potential of the fresh and tasty meals you can create. 

Here are five things you can do with your Oster® Electric Spiralizer:

1. Make a Healthier Version of Pasta 
Spiralized pasta dishes are all the rage, and for good reason - they're delicious and totally nutritious. Cut down on your carb intake by replacing traditional pasta with vegetable spirals. Zucchini spirals are a great pick for pasta dishes because they have a firm consistency, making them a great noodle replacement. You can make spiralized versions of all your favorite pasta dishes, from carbonaras to al fredos - the options are endless! Veggie pasta dishes can also be cooked up much faster than regular pasta, making them a great idea for active lifestyles. All you have to do is toss your vegetable spirals with olive oil, sauces, grated cheese and even chopped meats or additional veggies. Heat the "pasta" on the stovetop to warm, then enjoy your delicious meal. 

2. Get Your Kids to Eat Their Veggies 
Got picky kids that turn their nose up at vegetables? The Oster® Electric Spiralizer is the solution. When vegetables are transformed into colorful, fun spirals, kids can't get enough of them! Kids can enjoy the spirals on their own with a light dressing, or they can be enjoyed mixed into other dishes, like lasagna. With the Oster® Electric Spiralizer, you can help ensure your kids get the important nutrients they need from vegetables.

With a spiralizer, you have the culinary creativity and freedom to transform a variety of meals into tasty and fresh versions that fit your diet. 

4. Make Side Dishes that Wow
Add some more excitement to your dinners by making spiralized side dishes. There are so many side dishes you can create that you'll never run out of ideas and mealtime will always be interesting!

Whatever the dinner, from grilled chicken to shrimp, there's a healthy spiralized side dish that's the perfect match!
