There’s a saying I’ve heard from photographers that goes, you don’t slicing mandolin clip art to spend a lot to get a good vegetable slicer. The best camera is the one you have with you.
The idea is that you can have the fanciest camera kit in the world, it’ll do you less good than the camera built into the cellphone that’s actually in your pocket. But if it’s so cumbersome that you never end up carrying it around, that idea reminds me of how I feel about vegetable slicers. I didn’t buy and can’t recall how I got, i own three. What’s funny is that whenever I now need thin, but remember thinking I’d never actually use given the two other slicers in my collection.
I find myself always reaching for the cheap ceramic one. Even slices of something, i’m not sure I’ve used my professional mandoline in more than a decade and can’t really say when I last used the Benriner either. Now that I think about it, it often feels like too much of a hassle to get that gear out and set it up.
