A Moral Here Somewhere


Recommended Posts

Safety instructions and the like are usually supplied for a reason. :blink:

I bought a Mandoline Vegetable slicer/cutter today, with, to quote the box "Includes a finger safe food holder"

So I tested said cutter with out using the "Finger safe food holder"

I now have

a. 1 finger and thumb slightly shorter than before,

b. 2 circles of finger and thumb end

c. lots of blood

I wonder why they warn you that the item is sharp and to use the "Finger safe food holder"

Not happy now

Knives are dangerous, might cut yourself lol

With a knife you can control the thickness of the slice yourself.

With a food slicer can you adjust the thickness of the slices (from "wafer thin" to "now don't be greedy")?

If it can be adjusted, how thick a slice have you taken off your finger and thumb?

Last time I bought some knives they didn't come with some safety instructions and a warning, - or even a finger safe device!

If you cut it really thin, thinner than wafer thin, then you could put it on a microscope slide, stain it with iodine, put a cover slip on top and get it viewed under a microscope.

I like thick wedges of carrot, - cut freehand with a knife, so that you can actually taste it.

None of your thin tasteless thin cut stuff.

I would set it to at least a 4mm cut for carrots.
