Making an apple tart, potato gratin, or a cucumber salad? Try the OXO Good Grips Hand-Held Mandoline for all your slicing needs. The soft knob adjusts to the desired slicing thickness. Simply slide the food across the stainless steel blade for even, perfect slices. The surface is clear so you can see the slices below. Use a cutting board or plate, or you may hook the soft foot of the appliance over a bowl. The foot holder keeps your hands safe and also covers the blade when stored.
