Attaching blade inserts onto Farberware v-blade mandoline slicer

I purchased a Farberware v-blade mandoline slicer. Unfortunately, I have not been able to use it because I can't figure out hot to attach the blade inserts onto the safety insert. Please help.

    This is a different brand, but almost identical to the Faberware V-Mandoline I just purchased. Mine came with no instructions as well except on the flap of the box and it was minimal at best. This video helped me greatly:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=end...

You don't mount the blade inserts to the safety insert. The safety insert is only for storage so that someone doesn't cut themselves. Remove the safety insert then install your selected the blade/insert you wish. When finished place the safety insert back in for - safety.

    thanks! we couldn't figure it out either, there were no instructions in the box.

    I Googled 'mandoline' and after viewing many videos understood the relationship between the various types. Yes, I wish there were an instruction manual with the Farberware mandoline but it's probably like 'knives'. There isn't an instruction manual with those either. I'm having 'fun with vegetables' (in the non-wierd sense). I think my food budget is going to plummet using fresh vegetables.

    Thank you everyone!!!! I just bought one and I couldn't figure it out.
    Now, on to slicing!!!!

    Yikes, you'd think they'd put one little flyer in the box to tell you to take the safety insert out and how. It's a wonderful tool once you get the blade insertion figured out. Thanks for your help!

    No instructions are included. You would think someone at Farberware would try using this thing without ever seeing instructions, and then after a frustrating hour of trying to get the safety insert out they would include a set of simple instructions. I removed the safety insert by whacking it with a hammer. It came out and flew across the room. Hooray! It can now be used. Don in Texas

    I spent an hour trying to snap in the blades in which case I could have broken the slicer. Why didn't they list, on thebox with the other instructions, that you need to remove the safety piece first? I would guess a lot of these were returned either broken or because they were not able to use properly. Thank goodness for the internet and the ability to contact someone for help!!! Thank you.

I couldn't figure out how to remove the safety insert either. I tried using a hammer as Don from Texas suggested, but it didn't budge. I then examined how the slicer inserts were constructed and determined where the prongs were and how they should be removed. The back of the safety insert has a prong on either side. Grasp it at the end by the underside, what feels kind of like a handle. Pushed toward the blade, lift slightly, then pull back with it still lifted to remove it. When I did that, it came out like it was designed that way. You would think adding a quick description on the flap of how to safely remove the inserts without breaking the darn thing would be easy enough to do. Anyway, I hope this helps.

I just got one of these at a garage sale, very obvious it hasn't been used much, wonder why, hehe. Spent the last 10 mins trying to get the safety blade out, wow, going by what Sara said, here's what to do, at the pointed end of any insert, push down a little bit, at the handle end, lift a little bit, that will release the back prongs and the insert just pops right out.

I need the Blade nut and washer for the rival 1030. Anybody know where I might find it. Thanks.


Your best bet would be to purchase a whole unit on ebay for $20 - $30.

This may not be cost effective - unless you really like your slicer.

I prefer the old metal slicers not the newer cheap plastic ones.

I presently own one myself Rival Model# 1030/7.

My wife’s friends call me the "Gadget Man". I hope this helps.

Stripped gear on our Waring Pro FS150 Food Slicer


SmallAppliance.com has the part you need. Waring is no help at all. They only sell the replacement blade! Go to this web site: http://www.smallappliance.com/product.asp?pid=5147&cur=USD&cam=waring_parts&sid=18956&mid=34&gid=18971&prdCls=P&PartsPaNu=1&shopBy=Brand
and get the part. Thankfully they carry the motor gear you need. I had nothing but frustration dealing with Waring trying to get this part. Finally a nice Waring tech told me about smallappliance.com. Good Luck!
