    I'm creating this thread as a catch-all point for recommended tools for the Prepper Kitchen and Garden.

    Please feel free to add links to articles on food processing tools, kitchen devices and garden tools.

    Give special preference to hand powered tools, but don't feel limited to only those. Electric kitchen tools may still be functional in a post-event world, particularly if they run on low voltage DC sources.

    I'll start with a link to a site which I check daily. The author posts recipes and kitchen equipment reviews.

    I would like to recommend a kitchen tool used for slicing vegetables. It is commonly called a Mandolin (like the musical instrument).

    There are a huge number of brand names and a wide range of good, mediocre and bad models.

    It pays to do some research and look for user reviews on each brand and model.

    DO expect to pay more for a higher quality and sturdier model. Mandolins get some heavy work loads and you don't want it to fall apart soon after you start using it.

    I'm not going to recommend any particular brand/model and invite all of you cooks to post their recommendations and warnings.

    I'll start with a generic warning. The Mandolin is a vegetable Guillotine and will do major damage to fingers if you are not careful. It looks simple in the hands of a good cook, but do start slowly and have bandages at hand...
