Kyocera Ceramic Adjustable Mandoline

Recommended Posts

I recently procured this at my local knife and kitchen shop. What a dream to use.

Clickety

The ceramic blade is incredibly sharp, and the unit offers four differnet slice thickness choices. Dishwasher safe, small and compact.

Highly recommended

That looks nifty enough to add to my wish list! Thanks for sharing.

Yep I purchased one on ebay a while back. I purchased it to buy some time before replacing the blades on my mandoline. It's been a few months and I still have not felt the need to deal with the mandoline. It's simply so easy to clean up and does such a good job. The mandoline is such a pia to clean up...

I just added this to my other two Kyocera ceramic slicers -- a straight slicer that slices finer than the finest setting (0.5 mm, IIRC) on the adjustable model and a julienne slicer that I took back to Williams-Sonoma this week because one of the julienne teeth got chipped and the plate cracked. They told me it would probably be about a week before a replacement arrived.

These are easier to use, more convenient and less expensive than regular mandolines, and they slice beautifully.

Dave: AFAIK, there is no model that cuts ridges.

The three slicers I described are three separate items, all different colors: The julienne model is green, the super-thin straight slicer is yellow and the variable-thickness slicer is red.

Williams-Sonoma told me that they no longer carried the julienne model in their stores, but they don't carry the variable-thickness model either (I bought mine at Kitchen Kapers), so that doesn't mean it's not in production. I was told that they could back-order a julienne slicer to replace my damaged one under their lifetime guarantee.

Out of curiosity, what are your favorite uses for it?

I use the super-thin model to slice potatoes for hash browns, and I julienne carrots for my tossed salads all the time. The julienne slices are very thin, which I like.

Thanks for the clarification and information. These sound great, but...

Being old (fashioned) think I'll stick to my classic model which does everything.

Besides, I'm not sure where I'd find Kyocera products here in France.

Maybe next trip to the states.
