K20971 - Genius Set of 2 Gourmet Slicers
Use the guard!!
I had a mandolin a few years ago and I used it until it broke. I was so happy to find this on QVC and quickly ordered it. I took a potato and figured I would slice it half way down then put on the guard... mistake! This is so quick and sharp it sliced the potato in seconds taking off the top of my thumb with it! Ok, use the guard all the time!
I love this product and I use it almost daily. The smaller one is great for olives and as advertised. I am buying this as gifts for my family, they will think I am DA BOMB! Who can live without one of these??
I love this set! I don't use the small one very often, but the large one is great for any veggie I can think of. It's gotten a lot of use! I love the fact it stays sharp, and the depth is easily adjustable. I do recommend a non-skid cutting board.I can't tell you how many times I've barked my fingers without one! I thought my more expensive stand up variety would work better, but no matter what I do, it STILL slides all over the place! I took a chance on this one, and I'm glad I did!
These Slicers Coudn't Be Nicer!
I can't rave enough about the Slicers. I take a naval orange and a fugi apple and slice paper thin, and eat for a morning snack at work rather than a fat and calorie laden donut, then for afternoon snack, paper thin slices of cucumber, tomato and sweet onion sprinkled with a little salt pepper and vinegar instead of chips or candy bar. It just takes seconds to slice a whole orange or apple, you can adjust the slice width with just a twist of the knob, but I prefer thin. I just won't sit down and peel an orange or cut up an apple, for a snack. But those chilled paper thin fruit slices feel almost decadent. Then after slicing I just hold the slicer under running water to rinse off and it's ready for the next use. The value for the price is unbelievable. Thanks QVC! I'm actually eating healthier and that's priceless!
Love these slicers, the little one is the best, I use them on a daily basis. Can not say enough good things about them. Thanks QVC!
HOW DID I EVER MANAGE WITHOUT THIS
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE.
I can't imagine not having this in my kitchen now.
It makes prep work soo fast and easy. I wish I had this years ago.
I can't even begin to imagine prepping without it. And a bonus. KIDS LOVE EATING
FRUITS AND VEGGIES CUT INTO LITTLE SPEARS!
Now I can get my kids to eat all kinds of new veggies and fruits just by slicing
them in little thin slivers..we call them fries.. because the look just like shoe string french fries. I think the fav is apple fries.
You won't regret having this..you'll only regret you didn't get it sooner.
I've had my slicers for about two years now and we love them. Use them whenever we can and easily put them in the dishwasher. Don't think twice, these are really worth the price.
Only good for potatoes and cucumbers
I watched the show when this was on and I ordered it . Well I was very dissapointed with it . It does not slice tomatoes like it showed and I had a firm beefstake and a firm roma and it mangled them. It also changes the taste of the onion when you slice it . It becomes very bitter and tastes of metal . It sliced the potatoe and jicama and cucumbers well but nothing else . I tried the small one for garlic like they showed and it was worse . Sending it back .
awesome and sharp
I got this and it slices great and when he says it is sharp and use the tool to slice. USE IT.
BEST SLICER EVER - I bought the white color
Had a food slicer many years ago and now purchased these. These are the best slicers you can buy. I love the fact that the knob is easy to turn to adjust the thickness/thinnest of the slices you want. Also on the larger slicer the hand knob that holds the food has the metal pronges to hold the food in place when you slice. The only down fall is that the small hand knob on the small slicer should have those metal pronges also. The plastic teeth do not hold the food that well, so be careful when using it. But over all, these are the best slicers I have owned. QVC, you get a double thumbs up for having such a great product. (:
love this. i used this so much that i needed to buy another one because i couldnt. figure out how to sharpen it.
I made a good choice.
This is a product that lives up to the hype. I especially like the small slicer. The first day I sliced almonds, oranges, apples, and ginger; they all came out great. I could dial up or down to control the thickness of each thing I sliced.
This is the first "mandolin" slicer that doesn't scare me. When you finish slicing, you can dial down the opening so your fingers are protected. YaY!
Sharp, easy to clean, easy to use... What more could you ask for? It makes paper thin slices of garlic without the stinky fingers. Really excellent.
