However you classify the cut this device does, it can come in pretty handy. Use it for vegetable salads, garnishes, side dishes and more. You will find it is easier than ever to slice and shred vegetables all the while achieving perfect, uniform results. Use this great gadget for shredding carrots, potatoes, thinly cutting sticks of apples, or cucumbers. It is even great for cheese. It produces a slightly thicker and more stick-like shed when compared to traditional graters and shredders. It is not quite a shredder, and not quite a slicer. One thing is for sure though. No kitchen is complete without one of these great slicers. Cut like a professional! This slicer allows you to slice carrots, potatoes, cheese, the possibilities are endless! The cutter is a handy and durable way to quickly and uniformly all of your favorite fruits and vegetables. If you tried to do the same type of cutting by hand, it would take at least twice as long and you wouldn't get the perfect looking results that this device delivers.
