kitchenelf and Essiebunny,
I stayed up late last night making Pommes Sufflees LOL.. they looked perfect. I never before had such high percentage of nice puffed pommes, when cutting by hand was lucky if 40% of them will puff.
I think I will prepare a Gratin dauphinois tonight, my younger daughter loves potatoes so she will help me eating LOL

Oxo food mill is great tho.
i thought they "pulled" the microplane v-slicer off the market?

i never found out why... but i've heard that it is unavailable and won't be "released" until fall.

what gives?

LadyCook61,
The mandoline (tool) got the name from the instrument because it slices so precisely and easily that some French cook thought it played just like a mandoline.
At least, that is the story I was told.

I really do enjoy my Bron mandoline. I just made cucumber salad, slicing the cukes quickly into beautiful thin pieces. This device makes me look really good.

Essiebunny,
I prepared some passion fruit mousse today and just for a try, I sliced kiwis to put on top. The dish looked very professional, next time I will see if I can measure how thin I can go and take some pictures.

Essiebunny has me thinking I need a mandoline!

So my question is for Bron owners, did you get the "Pro Stainless Steel Mandoline" or the "Original Heavy Duty" one?
