Mosaic Solid Floral Print Sibling Sets Review
Uncle Genie: I've worked as a professional cook in a busy restaurant kitchen which had two different models of pro-grade mandolines, but I have this one at home. If you're slicing a zillion of something, then the complex settings of a pro-grade may be worth the trouble--but then, why not use a food processor? For home work, though, I've been using this little model with good results for over 5 years, using all its blades on all sorts of veggies and fruit (and once or twice on my knuckles when I got too lazy to use the holder). I modify pressure and speed to compensate for food characteristics and tend to use the holder only when my knuckles start to get close to the cutting surface. I recommend it to my friends as a handy, simple to operate, easy to clean kitchen gadget, great for the price.
V. Cummings "victorc1978": I bought this one for simply slicing some potatoes for a dish where I needed all the sliced to be the same. When I used it I was disappointed! The blade is not very sharp and when I use the other blades to make fries it ends up mincing instead of slicing. So it best for slicing and that is it!
Aaron Contorer: It does the job of peeling garlic, though not always on the first try.It gets dirty fast because garlic peels sort of stick to the inside. It's very easy to clean, but then you lose the time savings which it was supposed to deliver. If you want to peel more than a couple of cloves, it's a big nuisance.And it's simply unnecessary. To peel garlic, put it down on the cutting board (or counter) and whack it with the flat side of any tool (I use whatever chef's knife or cleaver is sitting around, or even the bottom of a can). The peel will come right off.
Adam "Adam": The person who patented this product is an absolute genius! I never thought peeling garlic could be this easy! Now if only there were an easier way to clean up the skins ;)
Always Looking for the Truth: We have owned one of these for a few years. LOVE it! Just put the cloves in, and roll it briskly - presto! - peeled garlic. Yes, you still have to cut the ends off - it won't do that for you, but it keeps the smell off your hands, and takes the entire peel off the garlic clove.
