If chopping up fruits and veggies is the most difficult part in your meal prep, you’re not alone. Without a quality knife and a steady hand, it’s hard to get precise cuts every time (it’s also time-consuming). But with a mandoline slicer like this one from Swissmar, life at the cutting board just got a whole lot easier and more convenient—not to mention, safer.
Whether you like to cook or prefer to order in, a mandoline slicer is a great way to save some time in the kitchen. It allows you to slice many different fruits and veggies quickly, beautifully, and with extreme precision. For example, you can use it to create those perfectly shaped potato fries or those thinly-sliced cucumbers for your salad. All you have to do is slide your food back and forth across the blade and voilà, each piece just as perfect as the last.

Swissmar Borner V-Prep Mandoline Slicer
That’s part of the beauty of the Swissmar slicer. Thanks to its surgical-grade blades, you can easily slice, julienne, shred, and even cube cut ingredients if you want. The plastic design also helps makes it super functional and easy to handle. Not to mention, it’s compact in size, so you can store it neatly in your kitchen without it taking up too much space. Plus, the clean up is nice and easy since it’s dishwasher-safe.
But most importantly, the Swissmar slicer comes with a safety holder that acts as a form of protection as you slice. That way you’re less likely to slice your finger or hand when you go in for the deep cuts. At the same time, you can also adjust your cutting size by removing and adjusting the plastic white insert. This gives you the option to change the thickness and shape of your cut as you see fit. Some folks are intimidated by regular mandolines because it’s easy to accidentally cut yourself on a blade—and those cuts aren’t pretty.
While there may be a slew of other slicers floating around the internet, this one can’t be beat in terms of price and quality. So, no matter if you’re a pro in the kitchen or a regular Postmates user, this Swissmar kitchen gadget can help take your meal prep to the next level (without worrying about slicing your finger off).
