About two or three years ago, I bought a really good one on sale at Williams-Sanoma. Used it once, cut off a fingertip. It was still bleeding the next morning, so I had to get it cauterised. I destroyed that mandolin with a sledge-hammer, and threw it away.

It only takes me two fingertips to come to the conclusion that I should not have or use a mandolin.

I sliced my finger open the first time I used it. I'm very very slow now. My fiancé seemed to think he could do it faster and I warned him but of course he didn't listen and nearly cut his whole tip off

Yeah, it doesn't take long to learn the mandolin lesson...

I bought these gloves same time I bought my new mandolin. I stuck a carrot down one finger and tried to slice it. Not even a knick. My first mandolin I cut off a finger tip too, which is why I made this a dual buy.

I've always been curious about those gloves, I like the idea but wonder if it will feel too bulky for me.

I really need to invest in some. I love packages in the mail!

I hate my KitchenAid toaster oven...sooner or later I will replace it but the price tag and the fact that it still works fine (well, that's a general term) I just can't commit yet.

What kind of convection/toaster oven do you have? What do you think are the best and worst features of the unit?
