Review & Giveaway: Say ‘No’ to spaghetti & ‘Yes’ to courgetti with the Kilner Spiralizer jar!
If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know how much I love organising. When I’m not organising Mr T. and the kids, I can while away hours browsing for storage ideas on Pinterest to keep my shelves and cupboards tidy. No wonder I was delighted when Kilner, creators of the original storage jar, asked me to try out the latest addition to the Kilner range, the Kilner Spiralizer Jar.
Celebrating 175 years of Kilner.
This year marks Kilner’s 175th anniversary of producing high-quality glass jars. To celebrate the occasion, the designers at Kilner have produced a new 175th Anniversary Jar, which reflects the styling and finish of John Kilner’s original patented vacuum seal jar. Kilner’s original jar revolutionised the way in which food could be made and stored.
Although Kilner’s simple but effective vacuum seal system is still used today, the company’s designs have continued to evolve and move with the times. One of the newest additions to its range, The Kilner Spiralizer Jar is a perfect example of how Kilner has continued to keep pace with current lifestyle trends.
The Kilner® Spiralizer Jar, (£10-£15).

Review: Kilner Spiralizer Jar.
The Kilner Spiralizer comes in a pretty printed gift box, which is a nice touch. The box contains:
1 piece spiralizer cutting disk
1 piece spiralizer screw band
Printed gift box
Having a manual spiralizer in the lid so you can feed the spiralized vegetables directly into a glass storage container is such a simple but practical idea, minimising mess and washing up. The Kilner Spiralizer is dishwasher safe too.
As with our much-used mini-food processor/smoothie maker, the Kilner Spiralizer jar provides another simple way to encourage us to eat healthily. Plus, it turns ordinary vegetables into a much more colourful and appealing meal.
I think the Kilner Spiralizer is a winner. There’s beauty in its simplicity. It’s a great value way to spiralize your veggies, offering a healthy alternative to pasta. Plus, it puts the fun back into vegetables for the kids.
The best bit about Kilner’s Spiralizer Jar is rather than buying a bulkier, more expensive electronic spiralizer, you can join in the spiralizing craze with minimal investment. What’s more, because the spiralizer comes with a spare Kilner lid, you can use the pretty 1-litre glass jar for storage when it’s not in use.
