Mandolines enable you to cut an array of foods into myriad kinds of slices very quickly. Unfortunately, they’re also prone to making you cut your fingers, quickly. These safety versions come to the rescue, keeping your hands away from the blades while you chop so you can get dinner on the table without getting injured.

It’s important to make sure that all your kitchen appliances are made with food-safe, non-toxic materials. Polypropylene, ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), SAN (styrene acrylonitrile) and ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) are generally thought to be the safest, most leach-resistant plastics.
