The Progressive PL8 Professional Slicer offers a variety of cutting options, including slices, julienne cuts, and French fry cuts. Use one sliding switch to adjust thickness from paper-thin to slab cuts. Use the second sliding switch to raise and lower the julienne and French fry blades. Stainless steel slicing deck won't discolor from contact with food. Safety hand guard keeps your fingers away from the blades, and built-in blades mean no loose parts. Dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.
