Transforming pounds of potatoes for your large family into thin and even rounds takes great knife skills. It also takes time and patience. The solution? Stock your kitchen with a mandolin food slicer. It’s a French cooking utensil that quickly turns fruits and vegetables into uniform slices or julienne sticks of almost any thickness and size. And if you have children at home you know how important it is to be able to crinkle, ribbon and waffle cut anything and everything that’s a vegetable.
