This food mill came very quickly, and meets my needs exactly! I own a mobile wood fired pizza oven, and bought this to hand mill #10 cans of tomatoes. It works great, and holds the entire contents of the #10 can.

This mandolin food slicer is a real convenient food preparation tool. Insertion of the attachments was easy to figure out. I used to have a mandolin made of plastic and didn't like it because it's construction didn't seem substantial enough for me. This one, however, is constructed of a sturdy stainless steel. Don't worry -cleaning it is simple too. I only wish it would have come with suggestions for more uses that I may not have already thought of. I'm glad I bought it.

This mandolin slicer was designed very poorly. You would think, if the manufacturer was going to use good quality materials (stainless steel and heavy plastic accessories), they would want to design a product to match. Not the case here. I'm not sure where the problem lies but the slicer actually mangles the food being sliced. My first attempt was a potato. There were a few crudely sliced pieces under the slicer and the rest was jammed under the steel plate below the blade. Pretty much the same result from the carrot I tried next. I believe part of the problem is the blade going straight across instead of angled. At any rate, I had high hopes when I opened the box and saw how heavy duty it looked but was sadly disappointed and ended up returning it.
You may not think children and cooking are two things that go together, but getting children involved with cooking offers great benefits. They'll enjoy cooking together with you. And you can encourage kids to eat a variety of foods; when children take part in making meals, they are much more likely to eat them. Having cooking tools that they can use will make this time together in the kitchen safe and fun.
Food preparation is a big part of cooking, and having the right kitchen utensils for each job is vital. There are many different utensils out there to choose from, and the kitchen utensils you select will have a huge impact on your preparation time and frustration level in the kitchen. You'll want to stock your kitchen with basic cooking essentials first and invest in the right specialty kitchen utensils later. This kitchen utensils buying guide explains your options to save you time and frustration now as well as later.
