Get excited for the Savannah Dual Thickness Speed Slicer with Hand Guard. It is designed to be safe and fast when slicing a large variety of fruits and vegetables. It includes features such as a double-edge serrated blade which allows you to slice in both directions and tackle hard skins, like potatoes or apples, as well as delicate tomatoes or peaches. A specially designed protective hand guard fits the slicer, giving a better grip to secure sliding up and down and keeping your hands away from the blades. To slice vertical items, such as carrots, cucumbers and zucchinis, simply open the hand guard to get a comfortable grip. The hand guard also locks into the sides, acting as a blade cover for safe storage when the slicer is not in use. The transparent body features grooves that securely hold the slicer directly over bowls and containers, and rubberised handles and feet to avoid slipping. This product is dishwasher safe.
