I have bad hands and cutting up veggies for dinner can leave me in tears. I’m looking for recomendationd on a good quality but not costly veggie slicer that chops, slices, greats, and isn’t too hard to clean.

  • I personally think the best thing you can get is a mandolin, they’re very sharp so they don’t require a lot of effort. You can actually get fantastic ones, for cheap, at most Asian grocery stores. They’ll stay sharp for a long time and they’re super easy to clean.


  • My hands are becoming increasingly more painful with arthritis. Im going to read thru the comments to see if there’s anything that might help me


  • We got the Aldi one too and it works great


  • I bought one at Aldi a while back, inexpensive and works a treat! Would definitely recommend.


  • Kleva sumo slicer. You can buy on eBay for around $40. Or try a food processor, I do find with food processors that their kids are hard to attach and detach.


  • So sorry to hear that. I’d definitely get something electric for less manual labour


  • Would go for something electric if you have bad hands. I find the manual cutters still require a bit of force and my mother who has arthritis has tried lots of different ones and never had any success until she got herself an electric one.


  • I broke my Trapezoid bone in my dominant hand about 8 years ago, my hand swells up every Winter so I also struggle cutting vegetable and holding saucepans. I bought one of the cheap slicers and dicers from Kmart a few years ago, they have similar ones now for $19. If it does what you need it to do I recommend it, otherwise you can buy vegetable dicers from the cheap shops.


  • We have a mandolin slicer that does a good job, and with different blades can do different chops


  • The Ortega kitchen slicer is the best


  • We have a braun stick blender which includes a chopper and food processor as well quite worth it under 200 bucks


  • Matt Blatt, Dick Smith, My Deal, Everton (to name a few), all have good kitchen slicers.


  • I agree with the electric slicer from Kmart.
    I wouldn’t suggest a mandoline if you have bad hands, if you’re not careful you can cut yourself on one of those.


  • Kleva Slicer is good


  • Kmart have a small electric one that has different blades to put in it to do different vegetables and would help you out a lot.
