OXO Mandoline Slicer Giveaway


Summer is all about salads and eating healthy, I love to make my salads interesting and eye catching so that not only do they look colorful but they look and taste great too.




The key to a pretty salad is to cut and slice the fruits and vegetables uniformly and neatly. This is when this easy to use simple mandoline slicer by OXO comes in handy.

There is no need to set up an electric gadget. This simple mandoline slicer is so quick to use that your salad will be made in a jiffy.

The mandoline slicer cuts perfect slices, you can adjust the thickness by using the simple slider to three different sizes and also adjust the setting to create julienne or put it on lock position for storage.
The mandoline has a soft handle and a non slip foot to steady it. This is particularly useful to steady the mandoline when slicing hard vegetables such as carrots and potatoes.


It also comes with a spring loaded food holder so that your fingers are protected from the sharp blades at all times. The food holder securely grips the food so that you can get maximum slices from it without waste.






Cleaning this mandoline is easy too, it just needs rinsing in soapy water as the blades are integrated, The feet fold away and the food holder fits onto the mandoline for easy storage.










I love this mandoline as there are no separate blades to mess with, no need for power and its portable so its perfect to take away on camping and self catering holidays.The mandoline comes in a neat box and is available on line or at any homebware store. It retails at £ 40.00

I was sent this OXO Simple Mandoline to test in my kitchen, all views expressed are of my own experience of the gadget.


As always I love my readers to have the opportunity to try out gadgets that I test in citrusspiceuk kitchens. OXO have been very generous and have agreed to send one citrusspice reader a mandoline for them to use in their kitchen too.
