Editor's Notes

September 27, 2019:

A spaetzle maker is a highly practical kitchen gadget that’s great for those who love to make this savory, comforting dish yet don’t have the time to roll the noodles by hand. These soft egg noodles originated in southern Germany and Austria, and have also been popular in other European countries. They’re commonly enjoyed with applesauce or covered in a sauce made from butter, sugar, and a couple of spices. Our selection features handled models made to press out the dough into your pot, as well as those that grate the dough so that it falls into the pot.

Joining our selection in this update is the Muxel's Spätzlewunder, which fits on top of a pot and comes with a tool that enables you to push your dough right in. It’s similar in design to the Kuechenprofi 18/10 on our list but, unlike that model, this one is made of plastic – which makes it more lightweight and likely easier to clean. It does come with instructions and a recipe, but alas, they’re written in German – which might not be a problem for many home cooks who make spaetzle, though. It can also serve as a strainer, and is thin enough to take up very little storage space in your cabinet.

Leaving the list is the Shu Franro, amid reports that the metal bends rather easily under pressure.

No matter which selection you choose, if you have little helpers, be sure to supervise them closely whenever they’re around a hot stove and sharp cooking tools.
