60+ Paleo Spiralizer Recipes plus How to Avoid Buying a Counterfeit Paderno Spiral Slicer (2024)

Guess who's back...back again? Well, it's been a long time, my friends. It's been a crazy, stressful summer around here, so I apologize for not posting. I hope that you are all enjoying summer wherever you are.

A few months ago, my spiralizer broke. Since I have recommended this spiralizer before, especially to those of you on Facebook, I figured I should tell you guys what I found out. I purchased (what I thought was) the Paderno vegetable spiral slicer back in September, but at the end of May (after only using it a few times a month), part of the handle broke. Turns out it was a counterfeit unit (purchased through Amazon, but sold by another seller).

I also scoured the Internet for spiralizer recipes from many talented bloggers. For those of you that already have a spiralizer or plan to get one, I didn't want to leave you hanging without recipes to use this thing. It only took me a few months to put this together. ;-)

So...after contacting the company, Paderno World Cuisine, this is what I learned from the CEO:

"They are made of poor quality as they are using the wrong type of materials; so they would break or crack easily or the suction feet don't hold or the turning crank snaps easily and so on.

If the unit is sold under a different name, then it's the consumer choice. However, if they are sold under our name, pretending being us, then it's a consumer fraud. We of course go after them but it's a hide and seek game; some resellers pops up at night, others just for a few days, others on different sites, using all the tricks in the book."

I wanted to share this information with you all so this doesn't happen to you. Or if it has, you can get your refund and get the real Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer. I have a new Paderno spiral slicer now and haven't had any issues with it. I can tell the difference in how smoothly it creates noodles compared to my old unit. (And if you're wondering, I was able to get a refund from Amazon for the counterfeit unit.) So, in order to avoid these counterfeit units, there are only a few places to look for the real Paderno spiral slicers.

Where to purchase the Paderno World Cuisine Spiral Slicer:

Amazon.com: But be aware that other sellers may be selling counterfeit units. To be sure you are getting a real Paderno, make sure unit is by Paderno World Cuisine (directly under name of product) and sold and shipped by Amazon. My was shipped directly via Amazon, but "sold by" another company. From the CEO: "...buy it on Amazon but only if SOLD by Amazon itself. Amazon LLC, as being the seller (not a third party) doesn't sell counterfeit units."

Purchase the Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer on Amazon HERE.

*Paderno recently came out with a 4-blade spiralizer which you can find here.

Williams-Sonoma: The Paderno spiralizer is also being sold at Williams-Sonoma so you can also check them out and purchase one there.

I can't speak for the quality of other brands as I personally use and recommend the Paderno spiral slicer. If you aren't able to purchase a spiralizer, you can use a julienne peeler to make some types of noodles. I used this one for my zucchini before getting the Paderno.

        Inspiralized by Ali

          I can't share a post of spiralizer recipes without telling you about the website, Inspiralized, that I recently discovered. Some of you are probably already familiar with Ali of Inspiralized. I've shared some (quite a few) of her recipes in the list, but Ali's whole blog is spiralized recipes. Very creative ones! Some are not paleo, but from what I've seen, many of them are or are easy to modify. She also has many tutorials and tells you exactly How to Spiralize. Find her website here.


          You can purchase the Paderno World Cuisine Spiralizer through Amazon HERE. Be sure to check that it is sold by Amazon LLC. (Find the new 4-blade spiralizer here. I have the 3-blade.)
