Als Ersatz für meine defekte Mandoline einer anderen Marke, mit der ich sehr sehr dünne Scheibchen hobeln konnte, habe ich diese Mandoline erworben. Das Produkt als solches ist prima. Es hat drei Einsätze dabei, alle superscharf. Seitlich befindet sich ein Rädchen, mit dem man die Schnittstärke des Hobels verändern kann. Aber leider war keine Schnittstärke dabei, die für meine Zwecke geeignet war. Das fand ich sehr sehr schade. Der Verkäufer hat die Ware sehr schnell versand, Verpackung usw. super.
Article a priori très bien sauf que les lames se décrochent du support quand on les utilise, ce qui décourage d'utiliser régulièrement cet article. A éviter donc, en attendant que le constructeur revoit la chose...
Until I saw the Cuisipro Mandoline, my newest favorite slicer was the OXO Good Grips Complete Grate and Slicer Set. Nice, lightweight, portable, with storage for the blades inside the vegetable holder. It looked good and even though I could tell it would not last forever, I liked what it did. And then along came Cuisipro, big and brawny, handsome and up to the job. There you go: my second marriage all over again.
Anyway, I switched over to the Cuisipro and like it very much. It has Includes three cutting blades with dual surfaces. YOu can slice, make those crinkle cuts and waffle cuts, or you can grate or julienne. The weight is nice. It does not wiggle around on the counter and it's sturdy as all get out. You slide in the blade, turn the key and you're good to go. The handle is slip-proof, you get a big knuckle guard (essential for people like me who are now officially down to the bone). With five cutting options you can do a lot with the Cuisipro. Even better, you can adjust the thickness from paper thin to zoftig. I like my potatoes with a little heft to them when I make a salad, but I'm thinking of doing some home-made chips and this is going to make it possible. Because, you now, I do need that essential second source of chips. If Frito-Lay ever decides to top playing fast and loose with my arteries, I need a back up system.
Anyway, I have tried the Cuisipro on a bunch of different foods. First out was a big bowl of semi-kim chee, which is a kind of fermented Korean cabbage slaw that I didn't ferment. It had sliced onions, napa cabbage, radishes, carrots, and other stuff along with hot peppers, fish sauce and any number of other herbs and spices. It was pretty good tasting, and the Cuisipro came through the challenge with no problems. Since then, I made some carmelized apples and onions which were a cinch to slice, and the next project is a truck load of potato salad, with a cart full of onions and maybe some carrots and other things that look interesting. With bacon and mayo and vinegar and boiled eggs. Traditional plus bacon, which is the international term for "more." The Cuisipro is big and strong, does what you need it to, makes boring things like slicing your way through a ton of potatoes less unpleasant. The price is $39.95 ($10 more than the OXO, but this looks like it will last longer, so that's a wash). Storage is easy...the mandolin is flat and I put the blades in a plastic bag underneath. It will take me months to lose them all.
So, for a good looking, heavy duty slicer that is easy to use, with blades that are a cinch to install or release and sharp enough to tackle what you want to slice, I don't see how you could go wrong with one of these. On the other hand, that third marriage didn't work out so well: I tend to be an optimist.
