I am was constantly slicing and dicing my fingers and hands while making recipes from fresh vegetables. Slice no more! I was grocery shopping one day when I ran across a demonstration for the Chef’s Envy V-Slicer. In fact, it was the same day I won $100 from the Atlanta radio station Q100.
The Chef’s Envy V-Slicer is similar to what many know as a mandoline slicer. It comes with a base, three inserts (one is reversible) and a safety handle.

The insert on the left is reversible and is for thick or thin slicing.

I normally use a cutting board, but it was M.I.A.
Just slice the ends before you use it!
Slices! I love how very little scrap material is left over.

Overall, I am very pleased with the Chef’s Envy V-Slicer. I’ve been using it since October 2012. It is capable of not only slicing vegetables and fruits, but also meats. I used it the Chef’s Envy in my Chicken Salad recipe in an attempt to follow the Paleo Diet. The mandoline style slicer is perfect for Meatless Monday.
The Chef’s Envy is very easy to use and has become a household staple for me. I love creating meals for my family and I feel as though Chef’s Envy gives me an edge to create more gourmet style meals or improvising on meals that we eat regularly. I paid about $30 for it at the time of purchase in October 2012 and it’s worth every penny, even 3 years later.
