A couple of weeks ago, I won a giveaway from Sarah at I Blame My Mother for the CSN.com stores. I was so excited!!! My daughter had talked about wanting matching aprons, so that's what I got us. I also had a little money leftover, and needed a new mandoline so I included one in my order.
I used to own a Pampered Chef model about 14 years ago. It had a stainless steel blade embedded in molded plastic. It worked great until the plastic cracked. They've discontinued it now. I haven't had one in ages and I'm so excited about this new one. It has a ceramic blade, alot like this one:
Tonight I made some homemade potato chips and it worked beautifully!
I think maybe my oil got too hot and toward the end of frying the potato chips, they started getting a little dark. Oh well, they still tasted fabulous! I sprinkled them with kosher salt and onion powder. Just because. My brain is running wild with all the things I can make now...apple pie, fried apple rings, sweet potato chips, beet chips, potato au gratin...I'm going to be busy!
Do you own a mandoline? Have you tried the ceramic blade?
