Review: OXO Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer
We are forever making zucchini slices to put into a pasta, cous cous, or other yummy salad. The problem we always have - making nice consistent slices and not chopping off our hand while doing so. The OXO Good Grips Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer makes this task really easy. You use the soft knob to simply adjust to the desired slice thickness, and slide the zucchini over the stainless steel blade for nice even slices. We like the clear surface that shows slices accumulating below, and the little grippy slider also hides the blades from our kids prying fingers.
Here's our impressions of the OXO Good Grips Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer complete with pictures:
Drag over the blad your favorite thing to slice - ours is zucchini.
In about 1-2 minutes you'll have all
the perfect slices you need for cooking.

Be aware: The OXO countertop mandoline I bought last year was about as sharp as an aggressive butter knife. Even more than with knives, I think sharper mandolines are safer, because you need less force to cut the food.
Maybe they've figured out how to make a blade, but try before you buy. I normally like OXO's gear a lot (and the design of the mandoline was terrific), but a dull blade makes it worse than useless.
