Last year, on a whim I picked up an inexpensive, handheld slicer. Smaller than a mandoline and far easier to clean than a food processor, it quickly became one of my go-to tools for making salads, shredding Brussels sprouts, and prepping vegetables for pickles.
I liked that slicer so much that when canning season started, I packed it into the bag of tools I take to classes and then promptly left it behind someplace on the eastern seaboard. Since then, I’ve been meaning to pick up a new slicer, but it kept sliding down the priority list.
Happily, my procrastination has actually paid off. Microplane has recently introduced a new adjustable slicer (it even has a julienne blade that you can drop in to make nice long ribbons) and sent me one to try out. It’s razor sharp, simple to handle, and easy to store. It’s miles better than my first little slicer (and I thought that one was the bee’s knees) and I am totally delighted by it.
Thanks to the nice folks at Microplane, I have one of these nifty slicers to give away. Here’s how to enter.
