Mandolins: craftsmanship in your kitchen
With a mandolin you can easily cut fruit, vegetables and other ingredients into thin slices. This tool consists of a rectangular cutting surface with feet. Here you will place your ingredient of choice after which, with one simple movement, you move it down to cut it into slices. Thanks to a mandolin you can quickly cut large amounts of food into even slices.
They are innovative, easy to use and maintain, strong and versatile. Thanks to the many accessories available you can always complete your mandolin.
How to choose the best mandolin
A mandolin is a versatile instrument that you use for many cutting tasks. The interchangeable blades allow you to decide the thickness of the slices. All you have to do is select the right blade and you are good to go. Since you keep using the same blade for the same ingredient you always end up with even slices, which is great if that is needed for the final dish.
Work safely with a mandolin
You can safely use a mandolin thanks to the practical non-slip feet, the safety slider (also known as 'pushers') and the handles. This will prevent the tool from sliding around on your countertop, and the pushers keep your fingers safe.
Maintaining a mandolin
Maintaining a mandolin is relatively simple because you can easily remove the blades and different parts to clean them individually. We advise using warm water, detergent and a soft sponge. It is important to remove all food residue when cleaning your mandolin to make sure nothing stays behind that can damage the tool. Of course, this kitchen tool can also rust so always make sure you properly dry it and store it in a dry place.
In time the blades can become blunt because of use, so you regularly need to sharpen them. You also need to closely look at the pusher before use, to make sure you don't get hurt.
