In February of 2021, the Ambiano Electric Spiralizer was $29.99.
While manual, non-electric spiralizers may be less expensive, the Aldi price for an electric spiralizer is very competitive when compared to comparable models on Amazon.
In February 2018 and January 2020, Aldi also sold an electric spiralizer for $24.99, so it appears that this is a winter item that Aldi sells frequently, but it may not be available every year.
GST International, based in Houston, Texas, provided a three-year warranty on the prior Aldi spiralizers. While we don’t have any details on the 2021 spiralizer yet, we expect it to include a warranty.

What meals are Spiralisable?
The majority of models work in a similar manner, and making oodles of healthy noodles is a straightforward process: “Attach fresh fruit or vegetables to the’teeth,” Cassie continues, “then turn the handle to force the food through your choice of blade to create vegetable ribbons or noodles in a variety of thicknesses.”
According to Cassie, there are a few vegetables that were made to be spiralized: “Root vegetables are ideal for spiralizing because of their hard texture, but you can also use cucumbers, squash, pumpkin, or firm fruits like apples and pears.”

Any salad that you want to top with onions can be used in this recipe. Pickled red onions or caramelized onions are also delicious.
You can slice an entire cabbage for coleslaw or braised cabbage in seconds, whether you use green or red cabbage. You may need to split your cabbage in half if it’s extremely huge, but if it’s typical size, just use the straight blade and whirl away.

Is it possible to spiralize cheese?
Spiralized cheese is just grated cheese that has been spiralized. Which is fitting, because the Vegetti is effectively a handheld grater, and an excellent one at that. The Vegetti is quicker than a box grater and produces a fine grate for chili toppings.
