New Gadgets from Progressive for the Holidays (and a Giveaway!)

After bringing home the Progressive Collapsible Salad Spinner, I wanted to know more about what was new from Progressive. Many of the kitchen tools and gadgets I have seen lately from this line seem to focus on storage and organization, making it easier to keep your kitchen in order. But they also have a couple compact slicers that caught my eye (I am Kitchen Gadget Girl, after all!)

I have an older slicer, which I use when I need thin potatoes or onion slices, but it is large and up high in storage, and difficult to clean (I always worry about slicing off a digit or two). Progressive offers a Julienne and Slicer, which is just the kind of tool I was looking for.

Right off the bat, I notice it has a locking mechanism so you cannot accidentally remove an important body part. In addition, it is dishwasher safe, which makes cleanup easy. And since it is relatively flat, I can store it down among my other kitchen tools and gadgets and access it as often as I want.

With three different thickness settings, for both slicing and julienne, the tool is easy to use. Grip it with the handle, set it over a bowl if you desire, and slice away. Also includes a finger guard for further protection.

The nice folks over at Progressive sent me a Julienne and Slicer to check out, as well as a Julienne and Slicer and Mince ‘n Slice for two lucky Kitchen Gadget Girl winners!


The contest is easy. One person will win one (1) Progressive Julienne and Slicer and another winner will win one (1) Mince ‘n Slice. That is right, two (2) winners! Deadline to enter is Friday, December 18, 7pm PST. To enter, you have a few options:

For items 2-5, please be sure to leave another comment when they are complete. More chances to win, donโ€™t you know. Only residents of the United States are eligible. Using, I will chose the two winning comment numbers. Winners will be drawn and notified on Friday, December 18th, so please be sure to leave an email address (in the secret field) when you comment.
