Yeah, they can be intimidating, especially for a klutz like me, but it’s hard to imagine life in the kitchen without a mandoline.
Arts and Culture
I've owned several mandolins in my life, and none of them looked like a kitchen appliance.
i am always intrigued by them, but i'm too careless in the kitchen for one.
little cuts and burn myself way too much. my mom and grandma are the same way.
I bought one for my gf a couple of years ago. I need to get one for myself.
I have one. I used it maybe three times in the first year that I had it, and zero times since then.
As far as I'm concerned, they've been supplanted by the blade disk of a food processor. I'm sure you can get somewhat finer control with a mandolin, but it's not even close to worth the extra trouble + risk of finger slicing. My Cuisinart and my chef's knife handle everything between them.
Yeah they can be dangerous but most of them come with a top that you place over the object that you are slicing and thAt really works. I have a cheap one that I bought in Chinatown but the oxo is probabaly a great buy. Then agAin a good cuisinart would do the trick too. I just never like dealing with washing the damn thing, and most of the time I just use a kitchen knife.
I prefer Rick Nielsen and his mandocello.
