Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Progressive International HGT-11 Folding Mandoline Slicer. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.30 stars, and the price range is $20.

Progressive International HGT-11 Folding Mandoline Slicer is designed for slicing, julienne and garnishing fruits and vegetables. It includes 3 double sided cutting blades for 6 different cutting options such as thick slice, thin slice, super thin, thick julienne, thin julienne, and super thin julienne. This tool is ideal for making French fries or thinly sliced carrots, onions, peppers, potatoes, firm tomatoes, kiwi, apples and more. It features a comfort grip handle, finger guard for safety and a non-skid base. It stays stable on the cutting surface or the bowl due to its grooves or ridges.You can slice a batch very quickly and the uniform thickness is great for drying.

The Mandoline cutting plates conveniently store underneath the unit when not in use. It is exceptionally easy to clean, quick to handwash and dishwasher safe. The change out is quick and easy. It works very well on vegetables that are somewhat firm such as zucchini and other summer squash, cucumbers, potatoes etc. However, it does not work so well with ripe vegetables like tomatoes.

Some users complain that blades become dull after some time and julienne blades are not sharp. Plastic handle seems to be fragile and breaks.

Overall, this progressive Mandoline offers a good variety of slice thicknesses, julienne and is an excellent value for the price.
