OXO Good Grips Mandoline Slicer, Model 1054752 1 ea
The Oxo Good Grips Mandoline Slicer blades are very sharp. Handle them with care when using the Mandoline and when cleaning the components. Always use the Food Holder to prevent injury. Do not leave the OXO Mandoline or any components within reach of children. Straight-bladed mandolines are not recommended for slicing overripe tomatoes or other extremely soft fruits and vegetables. Slicing blade: This blade features a straight side for straight slices and a wavy side for crinkle cuts and waffle cuts. A soft grip area lets you safely remove and insert this blade. Julienne & Thickness: This rotating cylinder has two sets of julienne blades. The row of blades set close together makes 1/8" square julienne strips. The row of blades set farther apart makes 3/8" square julienne strips. The cylinder is also used for adjusting the thickness of straight, crinkle or waffle cuts, with thickness measurements indicated on its soft knob. The soft knob makes handling safe and easy. Runway: This is the surface along which you slide your vegetable during slicing. The top part of the runway flips up for removal of the julienne & thickness cylinder. Both parts of the runway flip up for cleaning. Handle: The sift handle is below the runway to keep the mountains steady and your hand out of the way while slicing. Legs: Legs with non-slip feet fold up beneath the body for storage. Food holder: The food holder holds the food crosswire or lengthwise while you slide it along the blades and protects your hands from the blades. It snaps beneath the body for storage.
