Edgeware Mandoline & Better Zester Giveaway

*Update: This giveaway is now closed. The winner is Culinarily Courtney (#388). Congratulations! We will email you!*

Don’t you love the holiday season of giving? We sure do! That is why we have another fun giveaway for you today! We are giving away an Edgeware Mandoline and Better Zester.

We love using our mandoline to make sweet potato fries, vegetable spring rolls, and homemade potato chips. It makes slicing and cutting a breeze. It has five interchangeable surgical-grade specialty blades. You can julienne or make waffle cuts with no effort at all. It also has a high-performance V blade made from stainless steel that neatly slices the most delicate of foods. And don’t worry there is a 6-pronged Safety Grip Food Holder that ensures safe slicing, which is very important!

We use our zester for just about everything. The Better Zester includes a “fresh zest” storage container with squeegee. I love this feature because it gathers the fresh zest as it is grating and the squeegee helps remove the moist zest from the back of the blade. Genius! I love the green zester, but the winner can choose their color preference:)

For the giveaway:

To enter to win the Edgeware Mandoline and Better Zester, please leave a comment on this post telling us what you want to make with the Mandoline or Zester.

  1. I would sooo welcome the zester into my kitchen in hopes of saving my poor knuckles when I make dishes both sweet and savory. I’ve long used my cheese grater to zest citrus fruits, and it’s a wonder I have any skin left on my fingers! I’ve never tried to make anything that requires a mandolin, but I’m sure it would come in handy for making potatoes au gratin!

  2. I would like to make scalloped potatoes. I really like them and I think having a mandoline would make slicing the potatoes so much easier.

  3. I would use the mandolin to slice potatoes for a potato dish I make that has bacon, cheese, and potatoes and is so yummy, but donesn’t get made very often because it’s so hard to cut the potatoes by hand.

  4. How can I limit it to just making 1 thing with the Edgeware Mandolin! Where to start…sliced potatos for Scalloped Potatos. sliced carrots for salads. A mandolin is a a must have for every household. OH Yeah and sliced onions for just about ANY Dish!

  5. That mandoline would rock my world 🙂 I’d slice carrots for roasted carrot salad, julienne potatoes for some tasty hash browns…. I could even use it to cut up veges for my lizard.

  6. I would use the mandoline to make a potato gratin recipe that I saw – using sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. The zester would be great for making a chocolate cake with clementine frosting recipe I saw online a few days back!

  7. I love to make homemade fries, but I can never cut them unform so it takes them different times to cook, this would make my favorite snack so much easier!

  8. I have been shopping for a mandolin for over a month now and couldn’t decide. I would love to have this one for when I try your recipes.

  9. I would love to have a mandolin for slicing everything evenly. I would slice potatoes and turnips and sweet potatoes for chips, soup veggies, and onions! lots and lots of onions. Did you know zesters are good for ginger and nutmeg as well?

  10. I would love to make some sweet potato fries! I always order them when we eat out but I’ve been too scared to try to make them at home in case they turn out horribly!

  11. Love love love your giveaways this week! And the mandoline is awesome – sweet potato fries would be so easy with this! And the zester – very very cool!!!

  12. Ooooh, I’ve got a mandoline on my Christmas list! I’ve always wanted one! I’d make scalloped potatoes and baked onion rings.

  13. Hmmmmmm, where to begin! Something with potatoes probably…. I make these mean mini potato au gratin in muffin tins…. Perhaps a baked onion dip?

  14. I would love to give these both to my parents for Christmas! My dad would love the mandoline to make his famous bagel chips. Every year my mom makes lemoncello – and she insists on using her tiny hand-held zester to zest at least 17 lemons!

  15. this would make making my wifes eggplant rolls so much easier. They are stuffed with garlic, carrot, spices and yogurt. So tasty

  16. I would make perfect sweet potato fries! I make them all the time but they are never uniform size so they never cook completely even.

  17. Ahhhh I want a mandoline so badly. I would love to make my scalloped potatoes with one this year. Would make the job sooooo sooooo much easier. awesome giveaway!

  18. I would make zucchini chips and vegetable tian! And who wouldn’t want to zest every citrus in sight with with that zester – I would make lotsa muffins. 🙂

  19. I’d use the mandoline for snacking! I love eating fresh veggies, but I hate taking the time to cut them up. This would definitely motivate me to snack on veggies more often!

  20. I would make fries, of course, but I am just thinking of all the fresh fruits and veggies to be sliced,diced and chopped. Fantastic!

  21. I’ve been wanting a mandoline, but afraid I’ll cut my fingers off! I think it would work great for slicing veggies a consistent size for stir fry.

  22. I need a new mandoline to make fries and chips. Mine only has one blade and it keeps collapsing. I just can’t find a good one that doesn’t cost a fortune.

  23. My boyfriend actually asked for a mandoline for Christmas and I’ve been looking around to find the perfect one. This would be awesome! Slicing potatoes for his, uh, top 10 favorite dishes, would be the first things made, for sure.

  24. Oh, I have lots of lemon dishes I would use the zester for; lemon linguine, sour lemon pie, lemon curd..and it goes on. We love lemon. I have also been wanting a mandoline slicer forever!! I would love to just slice up veggies, make fries or try Ratattouille.

  25. I have wanted to make homemade potato chips and I haven’t yet due to the fact that I would probably chop off a digit trying to cut them really thin. I would love to use the mandolin to slice the potatoes for perfect thickness. 🙂

  26. I used my old mandoline for slicing just about everything from vegetables for the salad, strawberries for my breakfast, apples for the pies, potatoes for the dinner, it completely wore itself out! It was 30 years old ( a very primitive model!)

  27. Would love a mandoline that worked well. I have a recipe planned for this evening for plantain chips that would be oh so nice to make with a mandoline. Could use the zester as well. I finally bought a seemingly nice one only to have all the plastic around the edge break and fall off. It isn’t working well anymore. 🙁 Guess that is what I get for shopping at the grocery store. lol

  28. I would use the zester to make my fav lemon ice cream! I could use a refreshing treat right now. I would love to own a mandoline for fries or funeral potatoes, yay for yummy carbs! 🙂

  29. I would use the zester to put some yummy lemon and orange zest in a marinade I use for cornish hens! (the zester I had before STUNK, so I need a new one). Never had a mandolin, but my mom just got one and she made a veggie lasagna with sliced zucchini and yellow squash!

  30. I would use the zester to put some lemon and orange zest in a marinade for cornish hen! I would love to use the mandoline to make a veggie lasagna with sliced zucchini and yellow squash!

  31. I would use the mandoline to slice sweet potatoes for sweet potato fries…my favorite. And the zester to zest oranges or lemons for cupcakes.

  32. I would use the zester to make these delicious lemon cookies again. And the mandoline would make my everyday meal prep so much happier.

  33. My Dad’s scalloped potatoes–so, so good, but I hardly ever make them because it takes forever to thinly slice the potatoes!

  34. I have been wanting a mandoline for a long time! I want to make coleslaw, scallopped potatoes, and sweet potato fries for a start!

  35. I just saw a “Lydia’s Italy” episode for Limoncello Tiramisu! I think I might start perfecting it. Maybe without the raw egg whites, though!

  36. Both would get used all the time, they are so handy and make life easier. Plus my old Mandoline is wearing out, it used to belong to my Mom.

  37. I have been wanting to try potato chips, a mandoline would make it so much easier! And I do so much with lime zest, that a good zester would be fantastic!

  38. I would probably go nuts and use it for everything. I’ve always wanted one of these. I’d probably make spring rolls or a stir fry or something first though.

  39. I REALLY wanna make scalloped potatoes but there’s no way to make them without a mandoline. They need to be perfectly thin… Here’s hoping!

  40. I would make a layered root veg casserole, potato chips, zucchini noodles-and pickles-with the mandoline! Thanks for you giveaways 🙂

  41. I would use the mandoline to help me make the fine apple slices to top my Bavarian Apple Cheesecake. And the zester would be useful for so many things!

  42. This would be such a TIME saver! I do alot of scalloped potatoes and alot of salads. This would be Merry Christmas to me big time. I have started using alot of zest in cook chicken and fish so the zester would be great a well.

  43. A mandolin is one kitchen tool I don’t have yet! I think I’d slice potatoes for my husband’s favorite dish: scalloped potatoes. And I’d use the grater for chocolate!

  44. I’ve been wanting a mandoline! Your picture with the sliced sweet peppers made me immediately think of fried eggs inside a pepper slice….I’ve been wanting to do that. Thanks!

  45. I would love to make au gratin potatoes. My mom made them all the time when I was young, but I’m too lazy to slice those potatoes 🙂

  46. I am in need of a new zester. our THREE (what were we thinking?) pink grapefruit trees are falling over with fruit and I see many many jars of grapefruit marmalade and grapefruit liquor in my future.

  47. Oh I’d love these. I’ve wanted a mandolin for a long time to julienne things for stir frys, all sorts of things. Would love a great zester too, mine is awful. Thanks for the chance.

  48. Oooooh, and the zester comes in GREEN, too! I have a 20+ year old mandoline from a state fair booth that has seen far better days, but its orange color is back in style now LOL! I use it to make: sweet potato chips with spiced salt, apple crisp and pies, cucumber and onion salad, jicama salad — love those julienne blades for jicama! As for the zester, I have several holiday recipes lined up that require citrus zest combined with soft cheeses or butters that deserve more than my old Ecko fine grater — the sqeegee part sounds delightful as I always regret wasting the zest left behind on the grater!

  49. Sweet Potato Fries! They are my favorite but I rarely make them because I despise cutting sweeting potatoes with a knife!

  50. The first thing that comes to mind is a German cucumber salad. My SIL is German and she always waffle cuts her cucumbers with a mandolin before mixing them with onions, vinegar, oil, dill and a touch of Maggie. Perfect little side dish.

  51. I always slice apple and orange slices thin and dry them to hang on our old fashioned Christmas tree. This year our mandoline broke when my husband dropped it on the floor. I would Love a new one!

  52. If I won, I”d probably never use the mandoline, but my husband would be in heaven. He is the man for slicing and dicing. I would, however, get plenty of use out of the zester. I wouldn’t have to use my cheese grater anymore to make lemon bars!

  53. I’d love to make some eggplant parm with a new mandoline- I never slice the eggplant thin or even enough! Not to mention I would slice countless peppers, cucumbers, and onions for salad SO much faster than using a knife!

  54. I would make potato chips. Right now I cut the potatoes by hand and it just isn’t the same. The zester would be great for all of the recipes I love to put lemon zest in like blueberry muffins and cup cakes.

  55. I have some meyer lemons sitting on my counter just begging to be used. I’m going to turn them into a lemon curd and go from there.

  56. I would make another batch of scalloped potatoes. The last batch took me forever to slice the potatoes! It was a labor of love, though, for my husband.

  57. I have always wanted a zester.. not sure what I would use it for though! For the madolin I would love to try to make potato chips. Sounds fun!

  58. I would make my son’s most requested side: sweat potatoe fries “the big good tasting ones” .

    I coat the cut sweet potatoes with olive oil, seasoning salt, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and a little sugar all in a gallon ziplock, shake and spread lined cookie sheet bake 45 min until tender and starting to crisp. He doesn’t like potoes any other way!

  59. I would like to make a lemon cake with the lemon peel using the zester …Yummmm….. I’d like to make cabbage and cucumber salad using the mandoline 🙂

  60. I’d make a lemon chess pie. It calls for 3 tablespoons of lemon zest, which doesn’t sound like a lot, until you realize you don’t have a zester and you try to do it with your cheese grater instead. lol

  61. I would make my grandma’s scalloped potato recipe! I love it so much but I don’t make it often because it’s a pain slicing the potatoes so thin.

  62. I’ve been wanting to make radish chips for the longest time! The are sliced super thin, baked and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

  63. If I were the winner, the first thing I would make with the mandoline would be scalloped potatoes! It’s one of my favorite dishes!

  64. I would love the mandolin to thin slice sweet potatoes to make homemade chips.

    I have always wanted a zester but I make do with my grater. In fact, I put it on my Christmas wish list two days ago!

  65. I would cut any and every veggie for a beautiful salad! I’m sure this works so much better than the salad shooter my husband begged that we add to our wedding registry so many years ago. 😉

  66. I would make potatoes au gratin with the mandolin – I’ve always wanted to make the dish but have been too intimidated by the need for such thinly sliced potatoes. This would make it much easier!

  67. I would love to make veggie chips with the mandolin! never had one of those before and would always have to old school it with a knife.

  68. I love putting cooked peppers and onions into about half of the dishes I make. Using the mandoline would make it such a simple addition.

  69. I don’t think that I would use the mandelon very much, but my son (18) loves helping cook dinner. Because of his physical disability, it is hard for him to use knives to cut fruit and vegetables. This would be a great tool to help him in the kitchen. And with the zester, I would make chocolate chip orange cookies for Christmas…a family recipe.

  70. I have some yummy recipes made with fresh ginger. I would love the mandolin as well but would look forward to using the zester for my ginger recipes!

  71. I want to make ratatouille the way the rat did in the movie. I’ve been wanting a mandoline for a long time to try that recipe.

  72. I would like to make ratatouille the way the rat did in the movie. I’ve been wanting a mandoline to try that recipe for a long time.

  73. I’ve always wanted a mandolin to make this butternut squash and spinach gratin. No more thin slices painstakingly cut with a knife!

  74. I’d be making scalloped potatoes with the mandolin. Mmmmm. Perfect for Christmas. Creamy, cheesy and golden on top. Ho Ho Ho!

  75. I suppose I’d use it for either sweet potatoes or white potatoes… I don’t know, chips? A casserole? So many possibilities for those nice thin slices.

  76. I would love to make sweet potato french fries with the mandoline and I would love to be able to zest my lemons with the better zester!!

  77. I’d use the zester for the many recipes I make that call for orange, lemon or lime zest. The mandolin would be perfect for the Italian soup I make that calls for very thin potatoes and onions, as well as scalloped potatoes and homemade potato chips!

  78. We have a potato egg dish we love to make, especially for dinner. It would really speed up the prep if I could slice the potatoes evenly!

  79. The mandoline would be great for slicing large quantities of onions for the dehydrater. The zester for lemon peel for lemon cookies. A nice giveaway!

  80. I love to make raw veggie salads using Japanese radish and cabbage, carrots and other veggies, but doing it by hand takes so long…this looks like it would make it fast and painless to make!

  81. I’d love to make some homemade fried chips, that mandoline would make slicing the potatoes super fun and easy!!!

  82. I subscribe to your site and LOVE all the great food ideas. I’m craving sweet potato waffle fries now! Keep up the great work and thanks for the daily inspiration to make great food!

  83. Dang, my husb and I were just talking about how we could make waffle cut fries like they have at Chick Fil A. If the mandolin could do that, that would be the first thing I’d try. Thanks!

  84. I would make a salad with all kinds of veggies such as peppers, onions, tomatoes, radishes, etc and would use the zester to make a vinagrette with lemon zest – YUM


  85. What a great looking mandoline-and I LOVE that zester-I would use that to make my favorite lemon bars-that would make zesting those fresh lemons a very quick and easy job.

    The mandoline I would use to make our favorite au gratin potatoes-and during the summer, my neighbor Kay’s Swedish Cucumber Salad—mmmmm good!


  86. I would love to receive the Edgeware Mandoline and Better Zester. My passion is food and cooking. I love to experiment and am always trying new recipes and variations of favorites. With the mandoline slicing to various thicknesses, getting the right size and shape on various foods whether dicing or making some salads that is impossible to get the correct size without a mandoline. A zester puts just the right touch of citrus on many foods. I would enjoy using both! We have tried sweet potato fries but they did not turn out so would llike to try your recipe with this.

  87. Love your Two Peas, look forward to it each day,- prolly one of your oldest readers but I love your fresh ideas and adore looking at your pix of little new pea in your pod. Potatoes au gratin, lemon zest for fruit salsas, lemon bars, sorbets would welcome the use of that tidy tool. This old dog could certainly learn a new trick, I’m sure.

  88. I have wanted a mandoline forever! I would make sweet potato fries and those spring rolls sound good! I spend a lot of time slicing veggies by hand and this would make quick work of a pot of vegetable soup!

  89. I have loved having Two Peas in their Pod on my e-mail everyday. Your
    recipes are great. Even at 80 I’d still like to try a mandoline. It sounds

  90. I love to make scalloped and fried potatoes and a mandolin is the only way to go with those. I use lemon zest in so many dishes, savory, sweet, it makes so many dishes special.

  91. I love making (and eating!) gratins, and the Edgeware Mandoline would make such quick work of slicing potatoes (and fennel, turnips, beets…). Thank you for this giveaway!

  92. Love two pea & there pod, follow you daily. Love the mandolin and a zester with a squeegee. I would love to win. I could then have consistant size apple slices on my Whole Wheat Autumn Pizza.
    And my vegetable platter would be a thing of beauty.

  93. i have wanted a really fantastic mandoline for simply ages – and today is my birthday! i would make beautiful sweet potato fries and cut perfectly sized tomato slices and cucumber strips for my niece!!

  95. We would use the Mandolin to help make our HUGE batch of stuffing for thanksgivng. Thanks so much for the offer and inspiration!

  96. I am a Google Reader subscriber. Onions and celery for our big batch of stuffing at Thanksgiving. Thanks for everything you do for us!

  97. Oh my what a giveaway!!!! A zester is perfect for this time of year and badly needed in my kitchen. The mandolin would be a wonderful addition to making sweet pototo fries, etc. Thank you.

  98. I subscribe by email. I also spelled mandoline wrong in my prior comment. I hope that doesn’t hurt my changes of winning…

  99. I’d make something with potatoes first! I’ve never had one so I can’t say for sure what the first thing I would make it, but I’ve been wanting one of these for a long time now!

  100. I would love to may potatoes au gratin with the mandoline and a yummy marinade with the zester, maybe a tequila lime marinade.

  101. I would zest lemon or lime over couscous or quinoa, and I love to make thin potatoe chips with beets, sweet potatoes. Thank you for the opportunity!!
