Just tried out my new mandoline... - Page 2

post #21 of 34
Ooh, gotta be careful with those! My mom had to have a chunk of her thumb stitched back on after a careless slice with hers. Shudder. Have you seen this for apples? It ROCKS!

We have one of those apple/turner/slicers. Pretty cool! My dh uses it every year when he's making apple sauce.

Mandolines scare me. I need all of my fingers intact for my work! Awfully hard to play viola/violin without skin.

Hope your pinky heals quickly!! Ouch.

Ahhh sorry but that's why mine is stored in a high cupboard never to be used again! I used it a couple times but really, the food processor does an excellent job without risking life and limb (and appendages lol!)

Now, I know I was tired reading the title but I could have sworn it said 'mandolin'.

As for mandoline's, you need to use one with a guard. I learned that lesson the hard way. I just got a new one in my starter kit and I'm giddy!

I have an old mandoline from the 60s that my mother in law gave me. I love it, it can be sharpened and is all stainless steel. There is no hand guard though. I shaved my thumb a few times before I got the hang of it. They can be dangerous! I keep mine in the liquor cabinet so none of the children accidentally loses a finger to it digging around in the cupboards.

At the beginning of this thread, I was thinking about how I want a mandoline. Now, as my fingers tingle thinking of all the posters who shaved their fingers, I don't want one anymore! A good food processor that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars...does it exist?

Yep! It goes through an apple faster than you would believe, and my 5yo can even use it. (I feel a little bit like an infomercial - it peels!it slices!a small child can operate it with no harm!) But it's really that cool!

we don't have a liquer cabinet but we do have a cupboard above the fridge and mine came with a plastic case (that latches shut).

The kids were so freaked out by all of the blood that I'm pretty sure they're not gonig anywhere near it

I bought a silly chopper too... this one..

I couldn't find any food processors within my budget though

Now, if only my new coffee press would show..

(my b-day's next month so so I thought I'd treat myself early with hopes of getting enough cash pooled to cover my ..)

I sell a fabulous apple peeler/corer/slicer (through Pampered Chef) and it's like magic. LOL. Seriously, it's amazing. You can use it on potatoes, too. Ds loves it because he gets to turn the handle and he feels like he's doing magic.

ps...i love my mandoline for slicing leeks to make leek rings-they are super crispy and thin and delicious!
