This simple, compact slicer takes no time to set up, and is easy to use, clean and store. Made by
de Buyer® in Thiers, France, the serrated stainless-steel V-blade cuts fruits and vegetables quickly and precisely, even slicing through fresh tomatoes neatly. A dial knob adjusts blade position to take uniform slices from paper-thin to nearly 5/16" thick, or to close the blade opening completely for safe storage.
The 4-1/2" x 10" polymer resin base has non-slip silicone feet and a 4" soft-grip handle. The plastic guard has metal prongs and a studded face to grip slippery ingredients while pushing them into the blade.
The base and the guard clip together for compact storage. Even in the hands of a novice, this slicer yields results worthy of a professional chef.
