I used that slicer pretty much every day until 2000
on November 21, 2014
I bought my first Borner at a kiosk in a mall in 1991. It was really expensive. It was $20. It came with a crisscross fry cutter if I bought TWO. ( I am smiling) So I did. I gave my mom one. I used that slicer pretty much every day until 2000. I decided to treat myself to a new blade and KEPT the old one for camping at Burning Man.
I have the second one right now, fourteen years later.
I was a cook at home girl with a lot of veggies, but over the last few years I ramped that up.
I have cooked three full meals for four plus people every day for more than four years.
The V bottom is dull so I use the guide and cut carrots on the higher part of the V (towards the sides).
When I say carrots, I mean a pound at a time for dinner. This is the BEST and fastest veggy slicer I have ever used.
You could make sushi veggies on it! I LOVE this item. The only issue is that it never gets put away.
Salads, omelets, nachos, soup...
