Deluxe Cook

V-Blade Professional Vegetable Slicer

I love this Deluxe Cook V-Blade Vegetable Slicer. My old mandoline was about ready for the trash, so I was excited when I received this.  The blades on this are very sharp and cut through veggies and fruit. It is lightweight but sturdy. It is very durable and the silicone handle and feet keep the slicer in place and keep it from slipping and sliding when cutting. As I previously stated the blade are very sharp, so it is important when using a kitchen tool like this, that you have a quality product that ensures safety and the silicone helps ensure that you won't cut yourself. The hand guard that is include also helps ensure safety.

What I love most about this deluxe set is that it includes different blades allowing you to cut 2 sizes of slice thickness and 2 sizes of julienne thickness. You can make anything from shredded carrots to fries, cucumber slices to kiwi slices. I love using this for making fruit salads, veggie salad, fries, potato salad etc It also saves a lot of prep time, i'm able to easily slice through fruits and veggies quickly, or it allows me to do something else while my hubby slices them. The set includes a insert holder to store the inserts in.

It is very easy to use. You just select the blade and thickness you need and insert it into the mandoline. There is a button on the back you just press to release the insert and change to a different blade. You start slicing your food and when its down to about a third, then you insert the food you're slicing into the hand guard and start slicing. This set is dishwasher safe, but I prefer to wash it by hand and dry after use. This product is only for fruit and vegetables.

I received this product in exchange for an honest review.
