The Deluxe Cook hand-held V-Blade Mandolin Slicer is a fantastic item, enabling you to slice vegetables and fruits. I used this to slice cucumber and jamica paper thin and added it to water to give it a great flavor. The Slicer will slice those hard fruits and vegetables with ease. Comes with 4 very sharp blades and a storage box to keep the blades safe and all together. Lightweight compact and also easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
