The next thing that I love is the Adjustable Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer. I had a mandoline many years ago. However, it was jettisoned after an unfortunate encounter with my thumb in which the mandoline won. I have been wary of mandolines ever since. But I was so excited when I got this one because it has awesome features! First of all, it is adjustable. You just twist the knob on the side to make the “ramp” go lower or higher. This increases or decreases the size of your slices. When you twist it to zero, the ramp comes up slightly higher than the blade so you can store it and not accidentally cut yourself as you put it in or get it out from the cupboard or drawer.
I love that it also has a see-through portion at the end so you can tell how much you have cut. A safety grip snaps onto the back for storage, but is great for saving thumbs (and fingers) when you put it on top of your tomato, potato, or green pepper and use it to push the food across the blade.
