To my surprise it is a fabulous kitchen gadget, works just like it was advertised and isn't bulky to keep handy in the cupboard. I love the fact that the slicing or grating is duel action. As you run your veggies, cheeses, etc. across either of the blades it works as you push and pull back. I could believe how quickly I had potatoes sliced for scalloped potatoes for dinner. And onions...oh my they were sliced so thinly and uniformly I didn't even have time to cry.
Here is a link to QVC's listing for this grater/slicer: Kuhn Rikon Dual Slicer. Oh and in case you are wondering if I was compensated for recommending this project the answer is NO. I am a tiny little blog that absolutely no company has ever heard of.
So as I said I was making scalloped potatoes that evening. I looked up a recipe on the internet as I didn't have one that I was happy with. This is the recipe I decided to try Southern Scalloped Potatoes and I'll definitely use it again, the only adjust I had to make as adding additional milk to the besamel to thin it out a bit. I also added some very thinly sliced onions and chunks of ham.
I pulled out my handy dandy grater/slicer and sliced the potatoes in a ridiculously short time. Each and every slice was perfectly uniform which makes the baking time a breeze.
The end product was delicious and the besamel sauce held together
The potatoes were thinly sliced and perfect for this type of dish.
The onions were so thin that they baked down to nearly nothing,the slicer made easy work of this and I loved the uniformity of the slices.
