Use this French mandoline to julienne or make rippled cuts of cabbage, potatoes or carrots. The width of the slice is adjusted by a handle on the underside of the device; a knob on the side adjusts the thickness. Makes paper-thin cuts up to 1/2-in. 16.5 x 4.5-in.
The levers that move the plates are a little stiff, and you need to use trial and error to get the right cutting thickness, but overall this is a pretty handy tool that looks like it will last a long time. Cleanup is simple and I'm not worried about staining or breaking any cheap plastic parts, because it doesn't have any. There are 5 juliene/french fry inserts, and for some reason Bron chose to provide a storage container that holds only 4 of the 5. I'm not sure what they were thinking there. That said, it's a great time saver for all sorts of slicing chores, and gives you lots of options to play with fancy cuts.
<br> The mandoline, while very costly, had no direction booklet. There are 4 or 5 extra blades, but no description as to how and when they should be used.
The item seems pretty heavy duty. My wife has always wanted one to use instead of your Cusinart. So far we have only made sweet potato waffle fries ( which were perfect waffle shape once we got the thickness adjusted properly. I like the food holder much better than other models I've seen. The instructions are minimal. I guess using one of these is mostly intuitive, and it helps if you grew up viewing the RonCo vegamatic commercials. My recommendation fore use is to wear one of those kevlar kitchen gloves and taker firm sweeps over the blade with the guard while holding the stand steady. Aim for beyond the blade - if you push toward the blade and slow down your stroke, the food will jam mid cut.<br><br>When purchasing it was not fully clear that the item came with a full complement of blades. I looked for the same model on other web sites and the descriptions of what was included were all lacking. The box looked as if a catch tray was included but it was not.
Crudely machined, outrageously expensive, incredibly poor instructions.<br>I have seldom been as disappointed as when I tried this product. Stay away!!!
