The only thing I ever bought from TV was a Super Slicer. It was worse than you would expect from a TV impulse purchase. To say this thing was utter crap would be unfair to utter crap.

Mandolines are called that because you're sort of strumming up and down the thing. And yes, razor sharp blades are a must or it flat refuses to work. That means don't use the cheapest stainless alloy you can get your suppliers to supply, but instead the pricier alloy that will actually perform. There is such a thing as high carbon stainless steel. It's often called surgical stainless, but within that category are alloys that are better for edgeholding than some others.

Like that, only a LOT sharper.

(btw, I had no idea they were spelled differently. I've only ever heard the name spoken ... although it's probably in the instruction manual somewhere, I didn't read it.

This is the slicer that I feared the most. I have scars on nearly every knuckle on my right hand from slicing tomatoes back in my high school Burger King days.

Is it possible to salvage jelly that hasn't set?

Story is that I made up some jelly yesterday...here everything has to go in the fridge immediately otherwise there is ant suicide on a large scale so I put icecubes in the jelly to cool it down so it could go in the fridge quickly and it hasn't set....recommendations for alternative uses or straight down the sink?
