Got round to it in the end!,
This review is from: Zyliss Hand Held Slicer with Adjustable Blades and Julienne (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It has taken me a while to get around to reviewing this item because I have been quite scared of using it!
The point is, the points! Or rather, the blades. Every time I looked at it in its cupboard, a small sense of dread washed over me as I envisioned slicing away, getting enthusiastic, and slicing my fingers open.
Now that I have finally got down to it, I find that it is in fact very well and ergonomically designed. The red handle tool (stop me if I'm being too technical!) did safely prevent me from fulfilling my premonition!
So, once I realised I was safe, slice away I did.
And now I have done prep for stirfries, salads, Julienne vegetables etc. and can report that, to date, no injury has been sustained! Further, this is an excellent item. It is sturdy, the blades are sharp and the colours keep reminding you to keep your self safe. Which is always a good thing.
In an ideal world, the red handle cool would latch on to the main body of the device in some way which would absolutely ensure minimum danger. But this is not that device. Until someone does invent that, it only gets four stars.
