Stainless steel mandolin and grater
Spend a little more and buy better. The blade and attachments are so blunt they dont even slice properly!
doesn't cut through the vegetables
I bought this product based on the other reviews, but unfortunately it doesn't live up to what I expected. It's OK with soft vegetables, or for basic slicing, but I bought this to finely shred carrots into matchsticks for salads etc and it just doesn't manage it - the carrots were getting stuck or coming out partially cut through and I had to finish it with a knife! I saw many more expensive mandolins online and I should maybe have gone for one of them - you get what you pay for I guess.
Although the blades are more than sharp enough to take the tops of your fingers off, they aren't quite sharp enough to cut into a potato if you use the finger guard/food holder, which doesn't hold food quite well enough to be able to cut it
If you can figure out some way of holding your food without risking fingers coming in contact with blades, then this is an excellent kitchen tool
best mandolin i have found for a great price
I bought this mandolin a few years ago from Debenham's for my partner as he loves cooking! He's used it so much and thinks it is a great product. So much so that we purchased this one for his mother as she's always wanted one but found they were fiddly to use and difficult to clean. This one is so simple and washes in seconds. Fantastic buy!
a good buy
not really expected much for such a good price, but does the job, easy to store and easy to clean especially when you're pushed for space with a gastromad other half. Excellent pressie for the budget conscious.
