Oaf needs mandoline for thin-sliced garlic only

Smellchipper | Nov 30, 2008 12:51 PM

Hiya! I'm absent-minded and clumsy and like to take dangerous and foolhardy shortcuts. But I have a recipe by Julie Sahni which I love (lentils in garlic butter) which calls for 5 thinly sliced garlic cloves (to be fried in ghee). I figured a mandolin would be perfect, but then I started reading about bloody knuckles and fingers. I could use a mandolin for other purposes, but that would be the primary reason. Any suggestions for cheap, safe and effective?
