Perfect for slicing or julienning fruits and vegetables, the Mistral Mini Mandoline is as fast as the wind. The Mistral slices in 2 directions with a double-sided stainless steel micro-serrated blade, so it slices twice as fast. Slices and juliennes in 3 different thicknesses. Designed to securely use directly on the prep-surface or safely use in a hand-held vertical position. Safety settings and markings, in concert with a non-skid base and hand guard, make Mistral the ultimate kitchen tool.
