Deluxe Cook V-Blade Mandoline Slicer Professional
I am always looking for tools to make my job easier in the kitchen, and this is one that has come in handy several times. I love that the slicer comes complete with multiple inserts, giving you just the cut you need for your food items. This is perfect for slicing onion, tomato and other toppings for sandwiches, cutting veggies for sides, creating pieces for breading, dipping and more.
The Mandoline Slicer is easy to use. You simply snap in your desired blade, put the food down on the slider and use the press to move it toward the blade. This helps prevent cuts to your fingers and gives you nice, proportioned slices. When you finish, everything comes back apart for simple cleaning and the blade pieces fit into the included storage box for safe keeping too.
This is useful for new cooks and familiar ones alike. It gives nice, even pieces as long as you are using fresh, solid fruit or veggies. I tried making slices from a soft tomato and it created a big mess, while the firm, ripe ones cut beautifully, and in just seconds too. You can experiment with the different inserts to create shreds, julienne, slices and more if you use them creatively. It does take a little bit of practice to use this fluidly, but you will love the results and the time it saves once you get the hang of it.
