Zyliss Smart Guard Mandoline
A mandoline is an essential piece of kitchen kit, but the exposed blades are just as sharp as a knife. With that in mind, we set Swiss innovators Zyliss the challenge of creating one that keeps fingers completely safe at all times during use, and here it is.
The key is the patented 'spring lock' system – just hold the mandoline at the top, pull the safety trigger, and only then are the blades revealed so you can begin slicing. Adjust the selector on the handle to choose from one of the three thicknesses – there are no interchangeable blades to swap (another safety bonus) – while a knob at the side allows you to switch from slicing to julienne – exclusive to this model.
With non-slip feet, and grooves to sit firmly in place over a bowl. Includes blade guard and collapsible stand for safe, simple storage.

Wendy's Help & Advice
“Mandolines have very sharp blades so should be handled carefully. Here at Lakeland we only sell mandolines with a slider guard to hold the food in place whilst slicing and to ensure that fingers do not come into contact with the blades.
The secret for success is to let the mandoline do the work for you - move the slider up and down without applying pressure and in no time at all you will have sliced or shredded produce - applying pressure can cause your food to jam in the blade. We recommend you always use the clip on the food holder.
With the correct technique, your mandoline will soon become an essential piece of kitchenware. Click on the video demonstration (above) to see one in action.”

At Last....Fabulous” by Evelyn Spanner
I have finally been "allowed" to have a mandoline as this one is so safe. No extra blades to change or store yet still offers three thickness of slice and separate julienne at the slide or turn of a knob. Really stable and so simple to use. Streamlined for storage. Easy clean. 100% recommend.
Happy but not totally” by Richard
I received my mandoline and could not wait to start using it, after having a fear of mandolines for years, I was happy to see my fingers did not need to go anywhere near the blade, however, after using it for cucumber matchsticks and normal slicing I was a little concerned about the food holder, because it sits on top of the mandoline, when you slice, either side on the underneath of the holder is badly scored, this has now made me worry about plastic in the food. I think the design could maybe have been made a little better.
A note from the team: We were sorry to learn that you were not totally happy with the smart guard mandoline. We'll pass your comments on to our Buying team and be in touch shortly.
Easier to use than I expected” by Miriam
I thought it might be a bit fiddly using the food holder, but it was great and allowed a very smooth action. I used it for the first time today to slice onions and raw potatoes. Out of curiosity I used the julienne function for raw carrot and it didn't quite get through totally, but I don't mind too much as I really bought it for slicing. It's going to be used a lot I can tell!
