Now you can safely prepare perfectly sliced tomatoes, neatly julienned carrots or intricate waffle cut potatoes with the Calphalon Precision Mandoline Slicer. Multiple safety features, such as the handle-activated Blade Safety Guard, protect against accidental contact while still maintaining ease of use. The Flexible Food Holder with Removable Cap allows you to securely grip a variety of foods, including oversized or long items such as cucumbers or carrots. Four stainless steel blade inserts – Straight, Waffle, 3/8" Julienne and 1/8" Julienne – give you a variety of cuts, and the high-performance V-shaped design makes slicing effortless. Slice thickness can be easily adjusted with the Thickness Dial. Turning the Safety Dial to Store locks the Precision Mandoline Slicer so all blades are safely on board and out of reach for convenient storage.
