Kitchen Gadgets: Mandoline Slicer

There are a lot of gadgets out there for your kitchen.  How do you know which are worth your time and which are a waste of money? Little Sprouts Kitchen can be the guide. A good gadget to invest in is a mandoline slicer. It cuts your cutting time in half! Bad joke, I know, but it’s the truth.

The first one I bought was the cheapest one. Around $30 at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. Do not make the mistake I did and buy that one. It was awful! The old saying, you get what you pay for is true. I finally caved and went back to see what other options were out there. I bought the mid-line one from Calphalon. It has been wonderful! It was around $70.

Why buy one?? It may seem like a meaningless investment, but I disagree. Time is a very precious commodity. Not everyone wants to spend hours in the kitchen cutting, slicing, and cooking. And even if you do want to, it is not always the case that you have that much time to devote in the kitchen. This gadget can give you some of your time back.  Another good reason to invest is that it helps in making uniform cuts, which helps food cook evenly. Just one more word of advice: Watch your fingers! Use the guard that it comes with to keep your fingers intact on the sharp blades!!
