    I have been "challenged" by the mandoline, and finally looked at the product online course on CC. It helped alot, BUT I also learned that you need to take the handle apart to clean it. I had used it in SEVERAL shows, and when I DID take it apart... ewwww! Was it GROSS! Sure glad it can go in my dishwasher!

    Yep. I learned that you really have to take it apart to clean it well. I love it, but I don't like doing all that.

    I really don't think that it's that hard to take apart and put together. I love that it comes apart, that way you know that you're getting it cleaned, I just take it all apart and put it in my basket on the top rack dishwasher. Even my 7 year old can put it back together when she's taking care of dishes... When I'm demo'ing it at a show I always show how all of the pieces come apart and together just like I do the Food Chopper and Rotary Grater.

    I use my mandoline all the time, and now I'm afraid there's something I'm missing. What exactly are we taking apart to clean?

    The food holder... Here is the info from the PIG....

    To clean the food holder, disassemble it into three pieces. Turn the unit over and place a finger or
    your thumb on the center of the textured plate while grasping the food holder in the same hand.
    Using the other hand, turn the knob until it unscrews from the food holder. Then turn the food holder
    over and the textured plate will drop out. The entire unit can be cleaned and placed in the dishwasher.
    To re-assemble, thread the textured plate onto the prongs of the food holder and screw the knob onto
    the stem of the textured plate until secure. Don’t over tighten as this could cause it to crack.


    There is a small diagram but I couldn't copy and paste it for some reason... here is the link: https://www.pamperedchef.com/images/cc/us/pdf/product_info_guide/1087_ultimatemandoline.pdf

    Yeah, might be a little gross the first time, but after that, just get in the habit of cleaning after every use and it'll never get gross again! It's really not hard at all...

    Thanks for the tip! I never would've thought of taking the food holder apart, but it makes sense. (Guess I should've read the whole use & care guide, haha)
    I usually just look to see if it is dish-washer safe or not!
    I love how easy to clean my PC products are!

    I just took mine apart and it was clean, and I have never unscrewed that part before. Maybe the dishwasher took care of it.

    LOL - I never knew you could take apart the handle until one of my guests showed me - DUH!! I guess I should watch the video and/or read my use and care guides, huh?! ;)
     
Have something to add?
