However, I'm also clumsy by nature and decided to go ahead and order a slash-resistant glove along with my slicer and I'm very glad I did!
The food pusher thing is just too awkward for words. You have to slice your food with a knife just to make it small enough to fit under the pusher and you have to cut tall items, like carrots or zucchini, in to smaller pieces, because the pusher cannot propel tall items.
Fortunately, with the glove, I can just push my items along by hand, without worrying about losing a finger in the process and it makes slicing things so quick and easy producing lovely, uniform results.
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.
The only negative about it is that sometimes the handle that you're suppose to use to protect your hands doesn't always fit onto the food that you're slicing, depends on the shape of the food and how much is left of it, etc. I usually just use my hands but be VERY careful doing that. This thing is extremely sharp. As a matter of fact when I came to the page to write my review, I saw gloves that are sold to protect your hands from cuts. I might get me some of those.
I highly recommend this mandolin slicer, it's a lot of bang for your buck!
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.
