Give Away: Swissmar Borner V-Slicer Plus Mandoline

I am so excited. I have something AWESOME to give away. The great people at Swissmar have agreed to give away a mandoline slicer to one of my blog readers.

Let me tell you about this mandoline. I got mine a couple of months ago on Amazon as a birthday present for myself. It got great reviews. I LOVE IT! I use it almost every time I cook. It is great for slicing and dicing almost every kind of vegetable and works on many fruits as well. It takes all the work out of making beautiful salads and veggie medleys. For those of us who are trying to eat more vegetables, it is an essential item to have. After getting my mandoline, my chopper (that I used to use to chop onions) has been retired. And I use my food processor way less, too. This is just so fast and easy, and the clean-up is nothing.

Here is what the mandoline looks like:

Here are some of the cuts it makes:


Here is a video (bear with me, it is my first one!) demonstrating how easy it is to use:
