"Guard Does Not Hold the Food Adequately"
12 November 2015
I purchased this a couple of weeks ago and I've used it 4 or 5 times. The first time I cut my thumb but decided to be more careful. The next couple of times were successful but last night I cut another finger quite badly while using it. I purchased it as other reviews said it was brilliant but the guard does not hold the food very well and is inadequate for some veg like carrots for example and other types of veg are too big for the guard anyway which causes slippage. I consider that I have been lucky so far not to have done more damage and will not be using this again. I do not recommend.
A note from the team
Thank you for taking the time to place your review and discuss this matter with us today. For best results: we agree the guard should be in place at all times during use and would recommend to cut the larger vegetables prior to to slicing, so that they're easier to manage on this mandoline. We hope you find a suitable alternative product.
