The geniuses at Russell Hobbs have developed a new range of food preparation products such as their Hand Mixer, Hand Blender, Mini Chopper and a fabulous product entitled Slice and Go. The Slice and Go is compact, stylish with it's stainless-steel grating, shredding and slicing tool. This a fabulous product to prepare and to perfectly slice vegetables. With all the recent media craze with healthy and clean living, I was particularly inspired to use this product as a way of eating more vegetables. Easy to assemble, I first started with the shredding tool to make the Special Coleslaw, which is shared later on in the post. I found having sliced the cabbage in rough slices and then placing in the tunnel, within a matter of seconds I had a beautiful perfect sliced of cabbage which was smooth on each side. I quickly swapped the shredding tool to the grating tool and used this to grate the carrots, again within a matter of seconds the carrots were perfectly grated. Needless to say that my Special Coleslaw was on the most beautifully presented coleslaw I have made. I've also used the Slice and Go, to slice some well known Jamaican ingredients such as green banana and plantain to make fritters (which I'll post shortly on the blog) , which were perfectly grated. I would recommend this product as it is incredibly easy to use and really slices vegetables incredibly well. Reasonably priced at £24.99, this is a welcome addition to your kitchen.
