A cook's best friend in the kitchen may well be a good knife. Chefs, trained to use knives efficiently for food prep, still turn to a mandoline, not a knife, for picture–ready slices and julienne cuts of produce. With a good mandoline, any cook can create even, consistently–perfect slices of fruits and vegetables quickly and easily. And when the cook and machine work together safely, the mandoline elevates what a home cook can do, and enhances the final result.
Zyliss Smart Guard Gourmet Mandoline
Zyliss takes the lead on introducing a safer mandoline slicer, with restaurant-worthy gourmet features. The Zyliss Smart Guard Gourmet Mandoline features patented Smart Guard technology to keep blades covered and hands safe before, during, and after slicing. Accompanied by a handy food holder with gripper "teeth" to firmly hold chunks or whole pieces of fruit or vegetables while slicing, the unit ensures that fingers and hands remain far from the cutting blade during use. Anchored by nonslip rubber feet that won't skip or move across the countertop, the slicer's collapsible stand enables compact storage in a cupboard or drawer. The Zyliss Smart Guard Gourmet Mandoline has a five–year limited warranty.
Use the adjustable thickness selector dial to move quickly and easily between thin (1mm) and thick (6mm) slices. The German stainless steel V–blade system of inserts delivers superior slicing and professional results with every slice.
Patented blade guard
The patented retractable blade guard mechanism prevents unnecessary contact with the slicing blade when not in use. When ready to slice, simply squeeze the handle to engage the cutting blade.
Together with the patented blade guard, the food holder and rail-guided system assures extra safety by gripping and holding food items securely, keeping fingers and hands away from the slicing blade.
Variety of cuts
Alternate between straight slices, French frys and julienne strips to create a variety of culinary masterpieces. Includes two interchangeable julienne inserts – 3.5mm and 7mm.
A collapsible stand folds underneath the slicer to allow for flat, compact storage. Simply unfold and straighten the locking stand when ready to use.
Nonslip rubber feet
Nonslip rubber feet keep the slicer in place on your countertop and add an extra measure of safety and control when slicing.
Stabilizing notches in the base allow for slicing over a plate or directly into a bowl.
Stores julienne blade inserts safely when not in use.
Easy to clean
The Zyliss Smart Guard Slicer is dishwasher safe, though hand-washing of fine blades is recommended.
