Rosle (I love their tongs and pizza cutter):

Best play to buy it?

Thanks for your help.

  1. Rosle always seems nice, and frankly, if you are buying a tool to shave truffles (for home cooking?), just buy the most expensive one.. its probably still cheaper than the truffles themselves.

    You are violating the Alton Brown unitasker rule, though..

      Thanks, grant.cook.

      Yes, for home cooking.

      May also want to use it for garlic and fennel instead of a mandoline.

        I could see garlic, but for thinly sliced garlic, I generally just use a chef's knife anyway. Fennel heads might be a bit large for this..
