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.

  • 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.

  • Aldi had a great V-slicer a while ago, watch out for their special buys, great tool in the kitchen.

  • I have a food processor that has different blades, I think it’s breville. There would be lots of online sales at the moment with covid so hopefully you find something that suits .

  • I think there is one at Kmart or buy muktimixer which has that option

  • I use the V-slicer. I got gifted it over 12 years ago and find it really simple and easy to both use and clean. It wasn’t overly expensive and there are cheaper versions out there but as mentioned I’ve had mine for more than 12 years so worth the money.
    Stores easily and isn’t too bulky

  • A blender with different cutting blades could be helpful?
