The DeBuyer Swing Plus is an excellent and well-thought-out mandolin. The mandolin comes with a double julienne knife and a double knife. Because of the stainless steel support plate with dimples, nothing will stick to the blade. With this Swing Plus, you can cut julienne strips, slices or serrated chips like a real chef: smooth, safe and professional!
The difference with the DeBuyer Swing
The Swing Plus is the successor to the standard Swing. The difference with the “former one” is the system that determines the cutting width. The previous version had two screws to determine and lock the cutting thickness, the Swing Plus has a single wing nut that allows you to adjust the cutting width. Turn this nut, push it while turning and determine the desired cutting width (up to a maximum of 1.0 cm). It is enjoyable that the wing nut indicates the cutting width of the support plate.
Possibilities, using and cleaning the mandolin
For cutting julienne strips or fries there is the double julienne knife. A 0.4 cm julienne on one side, a 1.0 cm julienne on the other side. You can easily slide the julienne knife into the right position, after which a click confirms that the knife is properly secured. Do you want chips, possibly with a wavy or waffled cut? Use the double knife. One side of the knife has micro teeth for soft fruits and vegetables. The other side has serrated teeth with which you apply a wave- and/or waffle pattern. The knife can easily be brought into position in the predetermined slot. A click also indicates that the knife is securely attached, after which you can start cutting.
The DeBuyer Swing Plus is delivered with a pusher and a slider. Place the products to be cut in the slider and press them with the pusher. The pusher is enhanced with a spring and a pointed plate. With this, you press the product to be sliced without accidentally shifting. Turn the pusher during cutting to make cubes or diamonds. The fold-out support and anti-slip feet ensure the mandolin itself is firmly in place. Very safe and practical.
After use, the parts can quickly be dismantled and cleaned. It can be completely cleaned in the dishwasher. Still, we recommend cleaning the blades by hand. This way you increase the service lifespan of these parts.
