The very versatile OXO Good Grips V-Blade Mandoline slices fruits and vegetables with ease. Four blades and a simple height adjuster make straight slices, crinkle cuts, French fries and julienne strips in a choice of thicknesses: 1.5mm, 3mm, 4.5mm and 6mm. The blades store on board and are easily removable for cleaning. A textured surface keeps food from sticking to the Mandoline and the food holder securely holds food and protects fingers. The handle and turning knob are soft for comfort and non-slip feet keep the Mandoline secure on the work surface. Fold the feet and lock the Mandoline for compact and safe storage. The blades need to be hand washed, while the Mandoline body and food holder are dishwasher safe.
