Default What mandolines slice 1/2 inches or larger?

You might need lots of practice to create consistent 1/16-inch slices,
but if you can't cut even 1/2-inch slices, you shouldn't be allowed
anywhere near anything sharp, IMO.


It's utterly ridiculous to think you'd need a mandoline for cutting
1/2 inch slices. *Some people are bad at eyeballing length, but they
get better with experience (aka: practice). *To train your eye, use a
ruler for god sake.



Or if they can't or don't want to learn, the Feemster will slice from
1/8 to 1/2 inch, by increments.
