How to Use (Step by Step)
- Place Food in Chute
To get started with this slicer, place any vegetables ( fresh or frozen ) from any container in the clear chute at the top. You can fill it to capacity, but don't overload it so vegetables are spilling over the top.
- Push Red Button
Once you've loaded your chute, make sure the clear, transparent lid is on the chute, as you'll need to hold this in place with one hand while your device does its work. Then, press the big red button beside the chute to start up the device. As long as you keep your finger on the button, the slicer will continue to slice your vegetables.
- Seven Blades
When using your Picasso Slicer, you'll have seven different blades to choose from, including a crinkle cut blade that's ideal for cutting potato or zucchini fries. You'll be able to change your blade in seconds when you need to, and the blades come in different colors so they won't be hard to tell apart. When you're not using them or your slicer, you can store them within the area that'd hold the sliced vegetables when the device is in use.
- Two Quart Container
The container that will hold your sliced vegetables as your slicer does its work will hold up to two quarts of vegetables at once. That means you probably won't need to slice a few rounds of the same vegetable to get the amount you need, as the device will likely hold that desired amount all at once.
- Continuous Feed
If you keep one hand on the big red button while using this slicer, you'll be able to continuously feed vegetables into its chute and it'll continuously slice them without stopping and starting. Just remember to hold the chute's lid in place when you're not feeding the device.
- Dishwasher Safe Blades
All the blades that come with this slicer are safe to run through the dishwasher, so if you have one of those, you'll never need to wash them by hand. Do not put the entire slicer in the dishwasher, though.
- Safe for Anyone
This slicer is safe for almost anyone to use, including older kids who are just finding their way around the kitchen. While veggies are being chopped, a user's hand will never come in contact with a blade. If you're concerned about kids or people with mobility issues cutting their fingers on a blade while inserting it, you can simply complete that small step for them.
- Promotes Healthy Eating
Some people may choose not to eat vegetables because it's too much work to chop and slice them with a knife. The Picasso Slicer will making cutting vegetables a quicker, less tiring job, so many people may be more motivated to eat healthy dishes like salads, coleslaws and stir-fries.
- Comes With Recipe Guide
This slicer comes with a recipe guide, so if you're not exactly sure what to do with your vegetables once you've sliced them up, you can use this guide for inspiration.
- Only Cuts Vegetables
This slicer has been designed specifically to cut vegetables, and while you could try cutting meat or fruit with it, this might not work and you may end up clogging the device. Its blades just may not be strong enough to cut a thick piece of meat, and some fruits have pits and seeds that could cause the device to stall.
- Can't Walk Away From Device
While you never have to cut a piece of vegetable yourself while using the Picasso Slicer, you won't be able to walk away from it while it does its job, either. Instead, you'll need to remain in front of it, keeping one hand on the red button and the other on the chute's lid so it stays in place.
- Must Hand-wash Container
As mentioned, the blades that come with each slicer are dishwasher safe, but the container that holds the vegetables is not, so you'll need to wash that out by hand whenever it's dirty.
- Slicing by Hand
A lot of people choose to cut up their vegetables on a cutting board, with a knife, but this can take up to hours, depending on how much you need. Plus, if you're not extremely coordinated, you may end up with vegetable pieces that aren't an ideal size or shape, or even a cut on your hand.
- Other Kitchen Slicers
Other kitchen slicers besides the Picasso Slicer are available, but many of these are big and bulky and take up much more space on a countertop than this one does. Moreover, not all of them offer seven different blades, so with another one, you may not have nearly as many cutting options.
