Mandolin - Julienne & Slicer All-in-One



This is a favourite handy utensil.

It's a simplified and improved version of the old mandolins which require the relevant blades to be inserted and adjusting the blade thickness with a screw.

This all-in-one version is nattier, neater and safer as well. It will produce slices and/or julienne strips. Light and easy to use, with a special non-slip base, and grips to fit over different sized bowls, it even goes in the dishwaser.

Adjust the switch on the side to either 'slice' or 'julienne' depending on which blades you require, then slide the thumb switch on the front to the thickness you require - thin, medium or thick - and off you go. Slide the switch to 'lock' when you've finished, for safe storage. There is a protective finger guard for securing the food. Use it!
