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...
1.0 out of 5 starsAwkward to use and did not slice well, 1.5 stars
Reviewed in the United States on 25 May 2014
I chose Cuispro Hand Held Mandoline because I thought it would be a more compact and easy to store slicer than the ones I currently have:
Swissmar Borner V-1001 V-Slicer Plus Mandoline
Zyliss 4-in-1 Slicer and Grater
. The Borner is beginning to crack after 12 years of use, and the Zyliss has blades that are difficult to remove quickly, since the carrier telescopes in and out for the various blades to be fitted. Unfortunately, the Cuispro is NOT going to replace either of these as a good alternative.
Removing the label from the coated food surface is a pain-Krud Kutter, Goo Gone, Simple Green and application of the cleaner I use for my non-stick skillet all failed to eradicate this sticky substance. Then, after giving removal up as hopeless, I had a hard time taking out the julienne blade so I could make simple slices. I was afraid that I would wind up julienne-ing part of my hand before that insert came out. Once the mandoline was set for slicing, I get my potatoes ready, cut in half and mounted on the handguard. I dial in the thickness I wanted, and got busy slicing-weird, uneven slices that would jam in the blade. My husband tried with similar results. Carrots provided the same end product, weird chunks of varying thickness.
The one thing I like about this mandoline is the thickness dial. It would be convenient to be able to vary the thickness of slices without having to switch to a new blade, as with the Zyliss and Borner models I currently have. Unfortunately, since I cannot get it to slice anything with regularity, I will have to continue to use the other two slicers. The learning curve on what is a pretty simple kitchen utensil should not require the effort I put into this. Three days and several pounds of uneven potato and carrot slices later, I still have not figured this thing out.
