K5662 - Fuller Kitchen Solutions V-Blade Mandoline Slicing Kit
relly good item, saves alot of time when you need to things sliced or diced fast
Excellent Piece of Equipment
I was looking for something to replace an old stainless steel mandoline that was my mother's. I had already bought a different ceramic set from QVC and it sits in the drawer because it only cuts slices that are paper thin and has no stand, making it difficult to use. This mandoline by Fuller is phenomenal. Yes, it has a lot of parts, but they come with a stand. I stored it on my counter top for a while and now keep it in a deep drawer with my knives.
It is very easy to use. The blades change easily, but are very sharp, so need to be either in the mandoline or in the storage rack. I've used it to make slaws, french fries, diced onions and celery for Thanksgiving (so quickly I didn't even cry!), julienned veggies for stir fries. It has worked well on potatoes, cabbage, carrots, broccoli stalks, onions, peppers, zucchini, celery, kohlrabi, and eggplant. Small limp veggies obviously will not work well because they're too hard to hold.
I usually wash the blades and holder as soon as I'm done, with a stiff brush, and put the parts away. I put the safety piece back before I put it in the drawer. Carrots seem to leave a little color on the white plastic, so I clean it very carefully with a nylon pad and any residue usually fades by the next use.
This product makes dicing, shredding, or julienning vegetable a snap. It's easy on the hands and very quick to use. Slices are uniform and look beautiful. It works great, especially for the price.
Best Buy !!!
I love this item. Easy to use and often used. Easy clean up--dish washer. Hashbrowns are amazing.
I have had 3 of these. The first one I bought was in Germany. All I can say is WONDERFUL! I gave my other ones to my chilldren. They still cut as when they were new. NOW! I have just bought this one. Quality is GREAT! I love the storage that is included not to mention the self stand. Good improvement. on adding the stand. My others did not have a stand. This may be from Fuller.
A KITCHEN MUST HAVE!!!
I love this mandoline slicer. It makes preparing meals so much quicker from slicing veggies to making thin apple slices to be dried out in the oven (yum). Even slicing eggplant is a breeze. I had also purchased one for my mom and she loves it as well (once she figured out how the hand protector worked in conjunction with the machine). Now, if I can figure out how it can slice roast beef (LOL) it could be a multitasker piece of equipment (wishful thinking). Just be careful as it is sharp!!!
Fuller Kitchen Solutions V-Blade Mandoline
I am very happy with this. I had a similar one but this came with more blades, a stand and is just much better and easier to use. Slicing anything in any thickness is super fast! It does a lot more but that is what I use it for the most. Julienne also works great!
The safety thing is great! Just push the button and everything gets cut. No waste or need to hand cut anything at the end.
Any mandoline works best with harder foods of course, but this works beautifully even on tomatoes and peeled cukes. Paper thin or nice and thick. The only thing I have not tried is soft cheese but it wouldn't occur to me to use a mandolin for soft cheese like cream cheese anyway.
I don't understand the review by Docent.
GREAT PRODUCT - GREAT PRICE
I HAVE WANTED A MANDOLIN FOR A LONG TIME, BUT ALWAYS SAW ONES THAT WERE NOT AFFORDABLE FOR ME. THIS ONE WORKS GREAT. WHEN I RECEIVED MY SLICER THE SAFETY CUP HAD BEEN LEFT OUT, I CALLED THE FULLER COMPANY AND INFORMED THEM, THEY SENT THE PART IN THREE DAYS WITH APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVIENCE TO ME.. I LOVE TO COOK AND HAVE ALWAYS FELT THAT TEXTURE, OR THE SIZE OF PIECES, IS AS IMPORTANT TO A RECEIPE AS THE INGREDIENTS THEMSELVES. IF YOU THROW IN BIG CHUNKS OF...INSTEAD OF A SMALL DICE OR THIN SLICE IT CAN RUIN POTENTIALLY GREAT FOOD. THE SPEED WITH WICH I WAS ABLE TO MAKE A ZUCHINNI DISH AMAZED ME. I SLICED FOUR ZUCHINNI IN MINUTES WHEN IT WOULD HAVE TAKEN HALF AN HOUR IN THE PAST. I AM GETTING ONE FOR MY SISTER, SHE WILL LOVE THIS. SO FAR IT WORKS PERFECTLY, AND I LOVE IT THAT IT IS DISHWASER SAFE.
BETTER THAN MY $100 MANDOLINE
I struggled using my expensive mandoline - difficult to assemble - difficult to clean - easy to get cut with. So, I tried the Fuller mandoline. OHMYGOODNESS - I just sliced my zucchini in perfect rounds in less than a minute. Easy to use. Easy to clean and if you follow their safety instructions, SAFE TO USE.
This just goes to show you that you do not need to spend a whole lot of money on something to get great results!!! One comment would be easier to see #'s on the different sized inserts. Other than that this product is a winner!
I love this mandolin slicing kit. It is very easy to use and clean. My favorite blade in the kit is the thick julienne V-blade; I use it to make French fries, zucchini sticks, carrot sticks. The zucchini and carrot sticks are a great snack for the kids. If you are having trouble getting your kids to eat vegetables, try using the julienne blade to cut them. I have used all the blades in the kit and the all work wonderfully. I think this is a great product and is a very good buy. Worth every penny.
Not as portrayed
I have had this for several weeks and decided to use it for slicing vegetables (zuchini and summer squash) in order to try it out before the 30 days was up. . I was very disappointed so decided to try it again but with an apple this morning. Still found it unsatisfactory. I am returning it today. I thought it would be a great way to slice but actually found I had to finish slicing with a sharp knife. I really thought that I would love it which is why I didn't try to use it until now.
This Slicing Kit came in so handy for our canning prep work. My Husband loves to use this when cooking. We would recommend this to anyone who loves to cook. It makes prep work a snap. Great product!
MY SLICING KIT ATTIVED YESTERDAY AND I HAVE BEEN SLICING UP VEGGIES TO MY HEART'S CONTENT EVER SINCE!
IHAVE A STROKE ON MY RIGHT SIDE BUT LIVE ALONE AND PRETTY MUCH TAKE CARE OF MYSELF ALONE AND HAVE FOUND WAYS AROUND MOST 'HANDICAPS'...EXCEPT SLICING! THINGS JUST DONT LOOK EDIBLE ONCE I BUTCHER THEM. PLUS, MY FINGERS ALWAYS SEEMED TO BE WHERE THE KNIFE WAS ABOUT TO CUT.
I HAD SEEN THE FULLER BRUSH MANDOLINE IN THE PAST BEFORE MY STROKE, BUT THIS TIME, I COULD SEE THAT IS JUST WHAT I NEEDED. SO I ORDERED IT.
NOW THAT IT IS HERE, WOW! I AM EATING MUCH HEALTHIER JUST IN THIS SHORT TIME.
THANK YOU QVC, YOU ALWAYS HAVE EXACTALLY WHAT I NEED!
