Cutting vegetables can be one of the most time consuming parts of meal preparation. And, when done with a regular knife, comes with its own set of challenges and safety concerns. Use the Vollrath - 55013 - InstaCut™ 5.0 Vegetable Slicer - 1/2 inch Cut to get the job done quickly and efficiently. With a tall base, you can fit several different sizes of containers underneath in order to catch the veggies once they are complete. As you work, the suction cups located on the legs will keep the Vollrath InstaCut™ 5.0 Vegetable Slicer - 1/2 inch Cut (55013) in place and stable. Other blade assemblies are available (sold separately) to add to the versatility of the 55013.
