Amazon Friday Sale: Pinzon Stainless Steel Mandoline

In: Mealtime

Have you ever used a mandoline? It's a slicing, grating and shredding powerhouse -- makes fast work of these tasks without the cleanup hassle of a food processor. Plus, I have found that my kids prefer to eat the thinly-sliced vegies I can only produce with the mandoline.

I think it's a great time-saving tool to have in the kitchen, but I'm always surprised by how expensive they are. But I see that a nice, Pinzon stainless steel mandoline has popped up in today's Amazon Friday Sale for 50% off -- it's $39.99 today (free shipping, too). A good deal for yourself or for the foodie in your life.

These are great and very sharp. Use the safety holder. I left a fingertip behind one Easter. You can also get a cheaper version at virtually any chinese market.
First post, great site.

I use the Zyliss, even though my husband refuses to touch it because of the danger factor. I like the results a lot, despite taking off a fingertip every so often if I'm not careful. Must focus on task at hand...

I agree, these are great kitchen tools, but use the holder once you are past about 1/2 of the item. I too have cut myself more than once. I love mine especially for onions, potatoes and carrots. Thanks for the info, because mine is so well used the blade is too dull now.

These things are way too dangerous to justify thin veggies.
