ATLANTA -- Holly Beth Anderson spends a lot of time in the kitchen. She runs a business making organic skincare products from scratch, some of which require sliced vegetables.
That's why she's eager to try the Slice-O-Matic.
For $19.99, the Slice-O-Matic claims to slice vegetables easier, thinner and safer than using a blade.
"I'm very excited, because I've actually really always wanted to try one of these," Anderson says.
First, Anderson shows how she slices cucumbers by hand. Then she tries using the Slice-O-Matic.
She places a cucumber in the top of the food shoot and pushes the handle down. Then she cuts carrots and a potato.
The Slice-O-Matic works best on the potato. But when Anderson tries using the Julienne blade attachment, it doesn't work very well. A carrot get stuck in the product and doesn't cut like it claims it would.
Even though the Slice-O-Matic cuts potatoes well, it doesn't live up to all its promises. Anderson has no choice but to give it a mixed review.
