Want to make prepping meals faster, easier and healthier? Yup, there's a gadget for that. This array of cool kitchen tools don't just look good on your countertop—they're designed to give you a real edge when you cook.
Professional chefs are such masters in the kitchen that they can slice, julianne and cube their fruits and vegetables with machine-like precision. For the rest of us, there's the mandoline, a truly handy gadget that allows you to slide your food along one of several blades to create perfectly symmetrical cuts.
You can adjust the thickness of the food you're preparing with the turn of a dial; a double slicing blade features straight and serrated edges, and there's another that makes crinkle and waffle cuts. Then get fancy by playing around with julienne and french fry cuts. Like most high-quality mandolines, this one comes with a soft-grip food holder, which nixed that chances that you'll accidentally get cut.
