You Will Need
- A mandoline slicer
- A potato
Place the slicer perpendicularly
Place the slicer perpendicular to you so that you’ll have better control over the food.
Cut a potato
Try the mandoline with a potato. Cut it in half to make a flat surface.
Attach a potato half
Attach the rounded end of one potato half to the hand pusher.
Slide the potato
Slide the flat side of the potato across the blades using even strokes and consistent pressure.
Slice the other half
Use the same process for the other half of the potato, using the hand pusher to make even and consistent pressure strokes.
Clean the slicer
Clean the slicer immediately after use to prevent food from drying on the parts. Try it next with a variety of vegetables!
