Chef'n® Pull'n Slice Mandoline
We know that, up until now, mandolines have been a ‘love them or hate them’ product, but everyone who has tested this one has given it a very firm thumbs up! Samm, our Merchandising Manager and long-term mandoline-avoider was so reassured by its safety features – your fingers are never near the blade in use – that she said it was the first mandoline she had ever been confident to use.
Chef’n have completely reimagined the mandoline with safety in mind and, whether you slice, shred, julienne or dice, it’s incredibly easy to use. As soon as you try it, you’ll see why even the most reluctant of us have been converted to mandoline fans. While one hand is on the safety guard, the other is holding the handle of the base board, absolutely nowhere near the blade! And this is where Chef’n’s mandoline is unique; instead of moving the safety guard back and forth over an exposed blade, you pull and push the base board instead. So simple, and so safe. Precise, uniformly sliced food drops onto the surface below, and with 7 different options, it’ll speed up all those tasks that can take an age when you’ve got a lot to prepare.
There’s a dial on the side that lets you select from four thicknesses, and as well as a permanently fixed, super-sharp stainless steel blade that can slice even soft items like tomatoes, there’s a julienne and a French fry blade. Non-slip feet hold it securely in place and a large safety guard protects fingers as it securely holds food – its silicone collar squashes down so you can slice every last bit of the your fruit or veg and, unlike with most mandolines, you don’t need to apply pressure to the safety guard – in fact, the less pressure applied, the better it slices!
After use, there’s a ‘safe store’ position, on-board storage for the second blade, and a storage case for the third. Its performance is very impressive, the results are great and, thanks to all the thoughtful safety features, we’d go so far as to say this one-of-a-kind mandoline is the very best we’ve ever sold.

not quite refined enough” by Siobhan
Although this mandolin has proved useful for dicing onions - a job I hate - it is quite cumbersome and tricky to use. The size of veg you end up with depends more on how hard you press down than on the width adjuster and this together with the setting up means it is quite time consuming to use. Because in the end it is no quicker than a knife for everyday use, I suspect that it will be relegated to the cupboard with all my other 'time saving' purchases.
A note from the team: We're sorry to hear you've been a little disappointed with this product. One of the benefits of this great mandolin is you don’t need to apply pressure to the safety guard – in fact, the less pressure applied, the better it slices! We'll be in touch to help.
Persevere!” by Mrs Knight
This item is strong, non-slip, and safe. I found it somewhat difficult to assemble, and think the instructions could be clearer, ( e,g. that the blades slide into the attachment on top of the slicing deck). Once this was done, I had some difficulty with applying the right amount of pressure to the safety guard, and also found the thickness adjuster fiddly. However, after a bit of practice, it became much easier. My first French Fry batch was lovely! I will definitely use this frequently, and advise buyers to read the instructions thoroughly, persevere, and I think they will be pleased.
Not sure if I'm converted yet” by Valerie
The jury's still out on this and I can't say that I am going to be a mandolin convert. It took me a while to work out how to set it up - maybe I'm a bit impatient and didn't read the instructions properly. It is sturdy and well made and definitely safe to use. I'm just finding it a little bit messy/fiddly to use and clean afterwards. I am going to persevere a bit longer but I'm happy in the knowledge that Lakeland's great returns policy and super efficient customer service mean that should I remain unhappy with what is quite an expensive purchase, they will resolve this problem for me.
A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're pleased that you're going to persevere with the mandoline.The safety features may mean that there is more effort needed to clean the slicer, but we feel it's worth it.
