Vegetable Sheet Cutter: Is this the New Spiralizer?

I’m obsessed with KitchenAid’s Vegetable Sheet Cutter. Because I’m gluten-free, I’ve been a fan of spiralizing for years as a way to replace pasta. But the Vegetable Sheet Cutter takes it to a whole new level! Today I’m giving you an overview of the product and sharing my favorite Vegetable Sheet Cutter recipes.

Is KitchenAid's Vegetable Sheet Cutter the new spiralizer? I sure think so! It will revolutionize your healthy and gluten-free recipes.

Last year I had the privilege to check out a prototype KitchenAid product. Something that would cut vegetables into flat sheets they told me. Hmm, I thought to myself. My interest was definitely piqued.

KitchenAid knew I was a healthy, gluten-free food blogger and a massive fan of spiralizing. I don’t typically buy gluten-free pasta made from gluten-free flours. They’re just not products I stock in my pantry and I’d much prefer to get more veggies into my diet through spiralizing. Zucchini noodles galore.

Fast forward a month and I flew out to Chicago to check out the prototype Vegetable Sheet Cutter. After 5 minutes of playing with it, my mind was blown. I had recipes ideas bursting out of my brain and I couldn’t wait to put it to use.

A few weeks later I demo’d the Vegetable Sheet Cutter at the Housewares Convention. And to say it was one of the most talked about products of the show would be an understatement. Everyone was buzzing about it. So we shot a quick little video of it, put it up on Facebook and it went crazy viral.

If you’ve been following me for more than a year, I’m sure you remember it. I mean, I sliced a solid 8-foot continuous sheet out of one apple! Though you probably remember me talking about how unfavorable tradeshow lighting is – ha (see Facebook video).

But let’s talk about this amazing Vegetable Sheet Cutter. Because now having used it for nearly a year, I can honestly say I’m still in love with it as much today, as I was back then.

It’s not just a fancy novelty kitchen product that you’ll use once and shelve away. If you’re honestly looking for ways to eat more vegetables and transform traditional recipes into healthy, gluten-free versions – you’ll use this ALL the time.

What can you cut with the Vegetable Sheet Cutter?

You can cut a variety of soft and hard fruits and vegetables with the Vegetable Sheet Cutter. For fruits, you can cut apples and pears. For vegetables, you can cut zucchini, cucumber, sweet potato, russet potato, daikon radish, beets, yuca (cassava) and more.

Instead of making my sweet potato fries or yuca fries, you could make root vegetable chips.

With two blades, both a thin and thick blade, you can vary the thickness of the sheets. But to be honest, I usually use the thick blade as I figure a little more veggie in every bite is always a good thing.

Pro tip: for fruits and vegetables that oxidize quickly (i.e. apples and russet potatoes), soak the sheets in a bowl of lemon water until you’re ready to use them.

Make sure to watch the video above to see me make my favorite recipes. But here’s a few more Vegetable Sheet Cutter recipe ideas:

    • Hi Linda – Not really, I just tend to make sure all the sauces I use in a lasagna are not overly liquidy. I’ll try to add more recipes in the future. :)

    I love this post and have just ordered the veggie sheet maker. I already have the Kitchenaid spiralizer attachment so this was a natural add on. I would like to see the recipes for the meals mentioned in this post although I guess most of them I can figure out. It would just be nice to see them written out instead of fast forwarding and pausing the video.

  17. Because of your video my husband bought me one as an early Christmas gift! Please post your recipes I would love to try them!! THANK YOU AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS ??

  19. What a technique you share!!! Such an informative post you make that help me more to reduce my kitchen work. Are you give me the price and guideline list?

  20. AMAZING! I am purchasing my first KA stand mixer, the 100 Anniversary Edition. I am researching the attachments as I want to minimize my kitchen gadgets. We are ketogenic eaters and this vegetable sheet cutter definitely solves our problem of being able to eat lasagne once again. I’m suscribing to your posts and thank you for forging ahead for us with your ideas, recipes and demo videos. This attachment is being added to my KA arsenal!

  21. I saw the sheet cutter on a website last week, bought it and went to YouTube, saw your videos, and felt convinced I had another wonderful new kitchen tool. As many others have asked about the chicken enchiladas, that was my first interest but now I’ll have to wait for the recipe :(
    The first thing I made was the potato chips, using the thin blade and russet potatoes. As I was cutting them I had to put in a bowl with water to keep them from browning, blotted them, cut into various sizes, mixed with olive oil, salt and pepper. Baked at 425 about 15? minutes. They were delicious. You do want to watch that they don’t burn. 
    Anyway, I am anxious to try your recipes and look forward to many years of better eating.

    • Hi Suzanne! That’s great that you made potato chips with it! I usually bake my chips low and slow…about 250 for 30-40 minutes. That helps crisp them up without burning. And my chicken enchiladas recipe is coming to the website in January! :)
