Foodbuzz Featured Tool: Mandoline!

Foodbuzz.com's special product today is the mandoline, which they're offering at 60 percent off!* I bought mine last year at the Williams-Sonoma outlet (how I heart that store!) and I love it! It's the perfect way to slice uniformly ribbon-thin or super-chunky pieces of food, from zucchini ribbons (like in my lasagna) to waffle-cut fries.

If you're someone who worries about cutting yourself with a knife, you might want to consider a mandoline. The blades are safely contained in the mandoline, and it comes with a food guard that attaches to the food itself, keeping your fingers far away from the razor-sharpness.

I sliced up the rest of my zucchini today for dinner. I decided to see just how thin I could get the veggies. These slices were so thin, I almost had to double up the pieces so the camera could focus on them. Sweet.

Do you have a mandoline? If so, what is your favorite food to dice, slice, or julienne?
