The blades of the 1 Second Slicer are made of stainless steel, while the rest of the product is plastic. Different steel blades allow food to be cubed, sliced, diced or julienned.
To work the slicer, place the item of food on top of the container, and press the hinged blade arm in a downward motion. Identically-sized pieces drop into a see-through storage container. This slicer is designed to minimize cutting accidents. In addition, eyes are exposed to fewer onion fumes than when slicing with a knife.
The slicer is appropriate for vegetables, fruit, meat and fish. Its storage container holds three cups and comes with a tight-sealing lid for refrigerator storage. All components of the slicer are dishwasher-safe.
