Zyliss Smart Guard Mandoline

Product number: 14084

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.”

"Neat machine for slicing"

star star star star star_border

This review is for an older version of this product

I bought this mandoline to take away with me on a prolonged stay in Italy and thought it would be just perfect for travelling. It's great for slicing and making julienne of soft vegetable like courgette but totally useless with carrot or raw beetroot as I found out today at home. The action is not as smooth as the video suggests, the vegetables get stuck on the grating blades and only scores half way through leaving it in chunks. If you are looking for a slicer for griddling courgette, aubergine or potato it's excellent but forget it for making julienne of harder vegetables.

"Zyliss Smart Guard Mandolin"

Not as easy to use as the instructions (or other reviewers) say. I wanted to do cole slaw straight into the bowl (not on a board or work top) but this could not be done and by doing it on the work top made a mess as the cabbage flicked everywhere.

"Slices not Strips"

star star star star_border star_border

The only use I have for a mandoline is to cut julienne strips. Although this model sliced very efficiently the julienne cutter left me with vegetable slices that were scored but not cut through. My husband did manage to produce some cut strips but only after exerting great pressure. I have exchanged the Smart Guard for the more expensive Zyliss model.

"At last"

star star star star star

I have a mandoline and more often than I care to recount I have lost the tops of my fingernails and have come to losing most of finger too, but not with this mandoline. I used it as soon as I received it and it works a treat, and more to the point, totally safe and hazard free

"Julienne cuts are not working."

star star star_border star_border star_border

I like the design of this mandoline and it slices vegetables beautifully. However, it does not cut Julienne properly. Vegetables are not cut through and stick together. Then, I have to separate them with hands, which is frustrating and it might have been quicker to cut with a knife in the end. I am wondering whether it is fault on mine or all do the same.
