I’m not real comfortable in the kitchen, but I wanted something to help me slice stuff… so I picked up a Chef Grids premium quality mandoline slicer.  I was relieved when I pulled it out of the box and learned I didn’t have to assemble anything.  It’s set-up and ready to go with five blades, a food holder thingy, a cleaning brush, and a potato peeler.  It took me just a few minutes to learn how to use, but I made a few mistakes.  It doesn’t run on a track so you have to remember to move the food holder thingy sideways when pushing down the slicer, or you will slice up your equipment.  I also pushed my first potato onto the food holder thingy too hard, so I only got a few cuts before I was metal on metal.  These mistakes were probably due to my inexperience in the kitchen, but I wish there was some sort of instruction manual to help me get started.  All-in-all it’s a good slicer that is relatively easy to clean and store.
