    Default Mandoline Incident

    Anyone else had a run in with one of these? Got one on my birthday & used it for the first time
    New Years Eve. Ended up slicing the top of me finger off preparing onions for the tart tatin & spent half the evening in A&E.

    Should have read the instructions first which would have told me to use the safety device. I Wondered what that other bit was for

    Nahhh, her parents didnt slice her up, just kill her either directly or through neglect. They are the epitome of evil and Id love to see them sliced up ....
