The Swissmar V-Prep V-Slicer Mandoline set is a joint venture by two well established kitchenware companies. As long term partners, Swissmar clearly knows that Börner, with their 50+ years of experience and being the makers of the Original V-Slicer®, were the perfect manufacturer of the V-Prep V-Slicer. Combined with the Swissmar designed multi-functional bowl, this set provides everything you need - it's safe, easy to use, compact, stores completely protected and offers the performance and results that one expects from a Börner made V-Slicer. You too can prepare foods like a professional, with the safe and simple to use V-Prep. The V-Prep Mandoline is made of durable ABS plastic with German surgical grade stainless steel blades. Three inserts allow you to slice, julienne and shred cuts. The ambidextrous Food Safety Holder has a serrated edge to safely push food off slicer and requires very little pressure. Steel pins grip most sizes and shapes of produce to create even slices every time. The multi- function bowl with lid stores all parts when not in use and catches all sliced fruits and vegetables when in use. Easy to clean; rinse under hot or cold running water immediately after use.
