Well, I mean REALLY!!! First thing that went to the chopping block was a yellow onion, for which I installed the large julienne blade. The onion wouldn't fit between the guide rails that the safety holder thingy slides along, so I cut off the sides a bit to make it fit, pressed the safety thingy into the top of it and gave it a couple of slow and a couple of quick pushes across the blade. Voila!! A whole PILE of perfectly diced onion bits! Fabulous! In fact, it was so fast and easy that I had to put 2/3 of the onion bits into a container to store for future use. (My advice to other mandoline novices is don't underestimate the power of the gadget! Also, don't get carried away by the fun of it. My mental image was of Meryl Streep in Julie and Julia standing in the kitchen with a mountain of minced onions. Course Julia did it without a mandoline.) ... But I digress...
Next I wanted to slice a carrot. That was tricky, because the carrot can't stand vertically under the safety thingy, obviously. I held the big end of the carrot in my hand and slid the skinny end across the thin-slice blade. Having read the other reviews, and realizing the danger of the sharp (SHARP!) blade, I quit when my hand was several inches away from the blade. This left about half the carrot unsliced. My solution was to lay the carrot on its side, put it under the ST, and slice the remainder lengthwise, then used a knife to cut the slabs into stir-fryable hunks. Again, Voila!'
Finally, I thought I'd go for a bit of sliced green pepper. I cut off the bud end of the pepper, cleaned out the seeds and white tissue, then put the cut end down and slid it across the blade, expecting the hollow pepper to collapse. It didn't! That blade is SHARP! I know, I said that before....
I did this slicing and dicing onto a flexible cutting mat, which I could pick up and fold slightly to dump the veggies into the wok. Worked great. Norpro Icon Cut N Slice Flexible Cutting Boards, Set of 3
This weekend I'm going to make a bowl of sliced onions, peppers and cucumbers to put in a sweet/sour dressing to take to a family gathering. Hope the family likes them as much as they have in the past, because Mandoline and I will make a BIG batch!
I'm giving the Progressive International HGT-11 folding Mandoline Slicer a five star rating. The only concern I have is that the large blade that is permanently installed on the device is not replaceable. If it gets dull in the foreseeable future, or if any other problem arises, I'll return to revise this review. The price for this item is right, and the storage box is a real plus, as others have said.
I have one design complaint - the hand unit has lips on the sides that are supposed to act like a guide as you slide it down the blade plate. Well, they don't really let you know about this in the instructions or really give any clear indication on the product. So, the first time I used it, I had the hand unit sideways. After lifting the mandoline to see how it was working, I realized I had sliced several pieces of plastic into my potato chips and my product was damaged after the first use. Two things to note - the blade is sharp enough to easily slice through the hard plastic on the hand unit. That is super. In fact, one must consider this when I say my blade had dulled a little. Had I not sliced my hand unit several times, it might be good as new right now. Second, had Progressive International simply engraved/embossed an arrow in the hand unit showing which way it should face when slicing, this would have never happened. You guys can send me a check for that idea at your earliest convenience.
Bottom line: This thing works great and it is under $15. Most other products cost upwards of $30-45. Unless those more expensive models will also bring me a sandwich and a cup of coffee, I will stick with this model at the much more reasonable price point. Enjoy!
The biggest con is that the top of it is not flat but instead has a fairly large lip. This means if you have a large potato or zucchini that you want to slice horizontally you really can't. (spaghetti or french fry shape versus when you slice it vertically you get a flat round disc) If you want to go horizontal you have to shorten the vegetable so that it fits under the lip otherwise you can't lie it flat enough to slide down to the blades. This is a pretty big flaw if you want to use this to make the above shapes with larger veggies.
