Commercial mandoline slicers are versatile, efficient, and practical kitchen tools for cutting vegetables into thin slices or juliennes. They have a flat metal body with a sharp blade fitted on it. They can produce evenly-sized pieces from almost everything from thick square-cut potatoes to paper-thin tomato, lemon, or even cheese slices. The primary difference is moving the vegetables back and forth through the blade with your hand.
Safety must always be the hot priority while buying a commercial mandoline slicer because they have razor-sharp knives. When you start a rhythmic back-and-forth motion, users have to be careful. So, today's professional mandoline slicers have a safety grip to prevent accidents. For example, a hand guard in the Bron-Coucke Professional Mandoline holds the vegetable in place and keeps your fingers off the blade.
The adjustability of slice thickness is another key criterion. Some mandolines come with various blade attachments with preset cut sizes. Newer models have a more straightforward mechanism for size customization. For instance, you can turn the dial on the side of the Jaccard SafeHands mandoline slicer to vary the thickness from 1 to 8 mm. Finally, some commercial mandoline slicers have a handheld style, and their stand is flexible. You can set them over a bowl or fold the stand to use them as a cutting board on your countertop.
