The Amazing Kyocera Ceramic Mandoline Slicer
If you own a mandoline type slicer, you already know that this tool will seriously change the way you cook. If you haven't tried one, this Kyocera ceramic one is a must-have.
A mandoline slicer uses a platform and a sharp, angled inset blade that allows you to make consistent slices of any hard fruit or vegetable. This one has 4 different thicknesses. The thinnest is unbelievably thin - radishes come out actually translucent they are so thin.
You can get a variety of shapes and thicknesses in your slices by how you cut your veggies and the angle you use them on the mandoline. I like to cut my carrots on the bias, for example.
Your salads will never be the same - this tool makes it so easy to add 5, 7, 10 different types of raw veggies to your salad - just wash, slice and eat. My diet improved considerably when I started to use this mandoline.
What I like the most about is the ceramic blade. It is unfathomably sharp. It's actually the thing I dislike about it as well - be very, very careful with this! I've cut myself a few times by being hasty, not using the "gripper" tool or just not paying attention. It will also cut your sponges when you're cleaning it.
That said, if the worst thing about this slicer is that it's TOO good, I think that's okay with me. Everyone should own this mandoline - for their health, the improvements to their cooking, and the sheer convenience of it!
It's also an extremely good deal. I promise you that no other kitchen tool under $25 dollars will get this much use in your kitchen. The slicer I'm showing here is black but it also comes in red - just click the black one to see more color options.
Watch this thing in action and you will be a convert.
