You guys remember the post about the mandolin slicer?

The fear is real.

I wasn’t even prepping but cleaning the damned thing and the safety plate was on. I am about to dry it off when I notice the cute streak of red on its side and I wonder wat the heck was that. Hey Yay! I cut my left thumb!

Scary part? I did not know I was cut. Even looking at it, I did not feel it.

The cut was not long but deep and bleeding a lot so I used some old QR WoundSeal I had, added gauze and tape and done.

New found respect for that thing.

  1. Very sharp blades cleanly sever the nerves so the cut doesn’t start hurting until it starts healing. I learned that in middle school when I closed a brand new Swiss Army knife on my finger.

  2. BTDT! I love that thing, but it’s like having a pet tiger. Eventually there’s going to be blood… Now the last half inch at least of whatever I’m slicing gets done some other way or it just gets used as a big hunk. Not worth any more of my flesh and blood to get that last slice!

  3. I’m a chef. Not a pretend one, but even got me a degree in chefery. I require[under pain of write up] anyone using or of these things to have a cut glove on at all times. They are on of the best tools in a kitchen, but hands down [pun intended]one of the most dangerous. Glad you didnt get seriously hurt!
