what is a mandoline?

A mandoline is a kitchen tool typically fitted with a sharp blade that allows you to quickly, precisely, and safely cut fruits, vegetables, and more into a variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses. Uniform cuts are difficult and time consuming for any cook but are important for not only the overall appearance of a final dish but for a uniform cooking throughout. Mandolines will save time, are compact and easy to store, and can be used for a wide range of dishes and cutting needs. Some even have additional attachments for a variety of cuts. Anytime you feel the need to grab your knife, try out a mandoline instead, you’ll be amazed! 


safety features

Safety can often be a major concern when it comes to mandolines. With sharp blades to effortlessly slice and dice, it is important to take as much caution as one would with a sharp knife in order to avoid injury. That's why all of our mandolines are designed for maximum safety. Every single de Buyer Mandoline is sold with a protective pusher to guard your hands and fingers from the sharp blade while using it. As an added safety measure, all de Buyer mandolines feature a non-slip foot and handle.
