The best quality mandoline out there!
on April 9, 2008
I would just like to say that the previous review was correct in that, you do need to cut your food items to fit into the food guards proportions. However the four interchangeable blades, high quality, dishwasher safe, and finger and hand safe features make this mandoline the best one out on the market. Sure there are others out there that cost less, but this is the only one in which you can slice and shred quickly without losing any of your fingers or skin. Because the spring loaded blades will not work without the guard, there is no chance of putting your hands in contact with the blades at any time. Trust me you will like this feature. I know too many people who tried to use other mandolines, or even the Pampered Chef's older mandoline (this one is the newly redesigned one), and ended up cutting themselves instead of their food. (you can use your own imagination on that one.)
You can slice just about any foods with this tool, such as: firm tomatoes, onions, carrots, cucumbers, strawberries, green bell peppers, soft cheeses, and potatoes and so much more! Plus there is a grating feature for cheeses, and a non-skid foot easel for the counter top or table top. You can also click the easel flat to slice over a bowl or plate, and all four of the interchangeable blades fit into it's own little blade garage. It has a handle on the top for keeping your grip while in use, or hanging on the wall. It comes with full instructions, and even a recipe! The four blades are: straight edge, v-shaped, crinkle, and grater. This product also has a three year guarentee! The best for the money. Try it! you will love it too!
