How To Use It:
One of the best kitchen slicers available, and one of the easiest ways to get perfect results without any training or skill. Easily look like a professional chef while you save yourself tons of time an effort. Although anyone can use it without practice, following the steps below will ensure optimal performance.
- To use this tool, start by sliding one of the inserts into the notches on the plastic frame. It will lock into place with a click. The one with no blades acts as an adjustment for thickness, and either one with blades will allow you to cut vertically and horizontally at the same time for shredding, julienne and dicing.
- With one of the julienne inserts installed, the metal blades will face up and out. They cut food vertically, and the v-shaped, mandolin blade slices it down to size. Select either size blade to julienne, chop and dice at your preferred thickness. You can adjust height by switching notches, and width by choosing a different blade.
- To julienne or shred, slide back and forth. To dice or cube, make a 90 degree rotation with each pass so that you are rocking back and forth.
- With neither julienne insert installed, you can cut normal slices.
- To adjust the slicing thickness, just add the insert, and flip to either side. One side will provide a standard thickness, and the other will give you thin pieces. Remove completely to get the thickest slices.
- To begin cutting, put your fruit or vegetable on the safety holder using the metal prongs, then slide the food back across the surface, and past the blade.
- Apply even pressure, and you will get perfectly uniform pieces, all the way down to the last bit. The blade is so sharp, that even hard fruits and veggies will be cut like a hot knife through butter.
- Dishwasher safe when dirty.
- To store, add slicer to storage box, and slip blade inserts into position. It can be mounted to a surface, or it can stand freely.
This would make the perfect addition to any kitchen, but for anyone that does a lot of food prep, this tool is a must have!
