Slide and drop the runway into the upper position for julienne or the lower position for slicing and shredding. Tighten the knobs to lock the runway in place. Insert the desired blade into the opening on the side of the mandoline, where it will snap into place. To adjust the thickness of the slice, slide the lever to the desired position. The shredding blade will only work on the 1/16-inch setting. Push the prongs of the food holder into the food to secure it. Hold the mandoline's handle firmly with one hand. With the cut-resistant glove on your other hand, grip the food holder and slide it down the runway and over the blade in a smooth, even movement. Repeat. Squeeze the side grips to lower the food while guiding it into the cutting blade. When done, always engage the safety cover and store the blades in the unit. read more
