Use for carrot coins, zucchini or any vegetable with a rounded or long shape. Cut at 90 degrees.
Use for any longish vegetable you want to stir-fry, such as celery, green onion or carrot. Cut at a comfortable 45-degree angle. A mandoline makes this fast and easy.
Dice into smallest possible cubes, 1 to 2 millimetres wide. Use for root vegetables or firm fruits.
Purely ornamental, these are diamond shapes cut from a firm vegetable that's already been thin-sliced. Pretty in clear soups. Sweet potatoes and turnips are good candidates.
Exactly what it says -- chop as finely as possible. Eggs for egg salad are minced.
It may look like a chiffonade, but it's used on heavier leaves (as in shredded cabbage) or roots such as carrots or ginger. A mandoline is wonderful for shredding.

By the ounce, well done bacon has the most calories as it weighs less than raw or medium cooked for the same reason: the fat has rendered out and it is lighter, so more slices per ounce. Well done always has the least fat. So if you want the least fat…
