Kyocera's super slicer
employs the same ceramic technology found on the space shuttle and in Formula 1 race cars, a razor-sharp, rock-hard, corrosion-proof, lightweight ceramic blade. This super blade results in astonishingly easy, precise and fast slicing of vegetables and fruit. You'll be amazed at how well and how fast this slicer works. And how long it lasts, too; the ceramic blade stays sharp 10 times longer than a steel blade.
The ceramic blade in this hand-held slicer is adjustable to any of four thicknesses, from extra-thin to extra-thick, making it a real improvement on slicers with a fixed blade. You can cut thin slices of cucumbers for salads or thick slices of potatoes for an au gratin. For safety and convenience, a spiked guide securely holds food while you slice and keeps your hands away from the blade.
