If you want to take slicing to the next level, you’d do pretty well for yourself to get one of these Beriner turning slicers. They can create continuous strands of grated vegetables, spiral-sliced carrots, potato strings and a whole lot more. The varying blade options (4 different blades) make the slicer even more versatile and suitable for most types of produce. The Beriner mandolin is also a great item, made from hardened plastic which doesn’t buckle over time like so many stainless steel mandolins do. Just be careful of your fingers – the blade is seriously sharp.

And a reminder – good knives should never be blunt, so remember you can bring your own kitchen knives in to be sharpened at Chefs Warehouse. Drop off Monday, pick up Wednesday. Easy as that.
