Japanese Mandoline Slicer
This really is an absolute must in the kitchen. If you spend as much time as me watching cookery shows on the TV you will have noticed this little gadget popping up fairly regularly in a lot of the shows. It is a very quick and easy way to prepare vegetables in a professional manner.
So what’s so special about this mandolin?
Well, it comes all the way from Japan.
-it is light in weight
-it is very easy to use
-it is easy to clean
-and it is REALLY, REALLY sharp
I have to emphasis the sharpness – it really is sharp. Please don’t use when relaxing, sipping a glass of wine in the kitchen- you need to have your wits about you. And, don’t be tempted to slice away without using the finger guard. ……remember you have been warned!
It comes with 3 different blades two of which are interchangeable.
The results from this mandolin are fantastic!
You can whip up some cut vegetables & fruits -onions, radish, cucumber, beetroot, carrot, cabbage, apples etc really quickly. To slice, you can adjust the bar on the back of the mandolin to change the thickness of the slice. The serrated blades are inserted from the back and screwed in tight. It is small so it stores easily in a cupboard or drawer not taking up much room.
Replacement blades are available.
