My Rating: 10 out of 10!
Spiralize! Shred! Slice! Eating healthy has never been so convenient! It used to be that I would get home from work, too exhausted to cook, let alone cut up anything resembling vegetables, and end up making poor food choices, or worse, no food choices at all. That’s when I started searching for a solution to the evening meal – something easy, yummy and nutritious. This Veggie Bullet Review is a biggie and today I wanna shine a light on my new favorite machine. It is super easy to use, super easy to clean and super powerful.

Spiralize an entire zucchini in 10 seconds for delicious “Spaghetti” and marinara. Enjoy sweet potato curly fries for four in less than one minute. Or pop on the Shredder/Slicer Accelerator for a bowl-full of shredded Cauliflower Rice or a Sliced Veggie Casserole. The possibilities are endlessly amazing and mouth-watering!
Shredding and Slicing
The Veggie Bullet is equipped with two different assemblies. The first is the Slicing and Shredding System which operates like a traditional food processor, cutting your food either in thin uniform slices or finely shredded strips, and expelling it out of a chute. This assembly operates with a double-sided blade – one side is used for shredding, and the other for slicing.
The Shredding setting can be used for hard vegetables and fruits like carrots, beets, potatoes, and apples. It is also very useful for shredding cheeses and grinding nuts. The Slicing Function does a super job cutting zucchini, squash, onion, firm tomatoes, lemons, limes, and block cheeses and meats. It is also useful for coarsely chopping leafy greens like romaine, kale, and chard.
The second assembly is the vegetable spiralizer, which makes incorporating more veggies into your diet easy by creating strands of twirlable, vegetable noodles, which is a great healthy, green substitute for pasta. Unlike hand-cranked spiralizers, the Veggie Bullet’s automatic system creates little mess or residue and keeps all contents contained in one spiralizer “basket”. My favorite is green, organic zucchini, which spirals into the most delectable “zoodles” you’ll ever eat!
At just 23 calories and 4 grams of carbohydrates per cup, zoodles, (zucchini noodles), are less than half the calories of traditional pasta, and not only is zucchini better for you, it is fun to make, delicious and add great health benefits to your meal. Spiralizing isn’t just for zoodles! Try spiralizing sweet potatoes, squash, beets, apples, and more! Any oblong, firm vegetable makes a great candidate for spiralizing. Yellow squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and parsnips, other produce like beets, butternut squash, and apples can ALL be pre-cut to fit through the spiralizer Chute. I’ve even spiralized organic carrots! They look so bright and orange and taste deliciously fresh!
One word of caution: The carrot doesn’t spiralize all the way to the bottom, so you have to gently remove a tiny piece of carrot by pulling it out of the spiral chute, so be careful. Shredding carrots is probably the better choice!
Why go with an electric spiralizer over a hand spiralizer?
Well, maybe the question should be: how long do you want to spend making lunch or dinner? As fun as making spiralized vegetables can be, no one should be spending hours doing it. Cranking a handle isn’t exactly the way to burn calories, so let Veggie Bullet do the work for you. Once you realize how much you love organic zoodles, Veggie Bullet’s electric spiralizer will become the go-to machine in your kitchen.
By the way, it also shreds and slices anything from vegetables to meats and cheeses, allowing you to make delicious meals like stir-fry chicken with veggies! Just shred a bowl of savoy cabbage, purple cabbage, carrots and onions, throw into a wok or pan with some water, garlic and a splash of organic tamari, and stir-fry for a few moments until you think it’s done! (Please don’t shred the chicken BEFORE you shred the vegetables, unless it is already cooked!)
The video above quickly demonstrates how easy it is to put together a delicious meal in 3 minutes flat. Slicing the carrots made me realize that there are no more excuses! No more reasons why I can’t prepare healthy, organic meals that will help me feel rejuvenated…!
How to quickly Shred and Slice Veggies
Shred and slice zucchini, carrots, cauliflower, beets, onions, potatoes, brussel sprouts, hard-boiled eggs, cooked chicken, and more…! Make sure your ingredients are fully washed and prepped, and make sure you have a bowl under the chute, as seen above, in the left-hand photo. Place the ingredients into the chute, and guide down the chute using the pusher, while pressing the button below (center photo) and voila! Beautiful, healthy and shredded! One important note: The blade that shreds and slices is ONE blade, with 2 sides. Be certain that the shredding side faces UP when you want to shred, and that the slicing blade faces UP when you want to slice.
What’s the best way to clean the Veggie Bullet?
Make sure to unplug your Veggie Bullet prior to assembling or disassembling your Bullet. All individual pieces (except the Power Base) can be cleaned separately in soap and water with a soft sponge. For stuck-on pieces of food, the folks at Veggie Bullet have included a cleaning brush designed to get into the machine’s nooks and crannies. The Power Base should simply be wiped with a damp cloth. To be honest, if you are only using organic vegetables in the Bullet, simply rinsing with hot water does the trick. I let the parts air dry on a towel.
I can’t live without this Bullet! It has saved me time and given me the opportunity to make healthy, delicious meals almost every day, with little effort. My time is at a premium, and the $139.99 is well worth the convenience. This is the cadillac of appliances, and sits in a place of honor in my kitchen!
