How to use the Brieftons Adjustable Mandoline Slicer

    • Put the mandoline slicer on top of the included food container. Alternatively, put it on any surface or on top of any bowl/container you have around the house.
    • Optionally, use the safety food holder to grab the vegetable/fruit and keep your fingers safe.
    • Use a consistent forward motion to slice/grate your food. The results will come out at the bottom of the mandoline slicer.

How to use


  • For best slicing results, foods should be firm
  • For round fruits or vegetables such as tomatoes, potatoes or beets, use a knife to cut off a small portion to create a flat end
  • For larger foods, cut in half and slice cut-side down
  • For vegetable rounds, cut long foods such as zucchini and cucumbers into 2.5-inch/6 cm lengths before placing vertically in the food holder
  • For best grating results, cheese should be cold and cut into 2-inch/5 cm pieces


  • When done with slicing or grating remove remains of food from the food holder
  • Rinse all used components under running water and clean with mild detergent. Let it dry and store. Alternatively, wash them in a dishwasher (top shelf)
