Spiral Slicing Your Food


Ever since my friend bought herself a spiralizing vegetable machine, I have been desperately wanting one for myself because zucchini noodles are the most amazing thing I have eaten this year! The one thing that still bugs me is that the entire gadget (except for the cutting blades) is made from plastic, and I worry that I will break it very quickly.

So naturally, my maker-brain starts turning and wonders if I could create my own DIY version of the spiralizer. After a little bit of internet searching to see if anyone else has had my genius idea, I came across this macgyvered version of a slicing tool which I thought was quite charming, though still terribly impractical. This hack is not recommended for kids, I cringe at about 2:13 in the video, fearing for those finger tips.
