Scave31: I bought this mandoline in particular, because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on something I wasn't sure I would use. It turned out I really like it! I've used it to cut things as hard as sweet potatoes and slightly under-ripe mangos and as soft as ripe bananas. The bananas were trickier, as they had to be cut a little more slowly to keep from crushing them, but they turned out beautifully! I recently bought a dehydrator so have cut bananas for banana chips and they turned out perfectly uniform and the mandoline made the process go very quickly. The only disadvantages to bananas in particular is that they don't fit the protective handle that comes with the mandoline, so I had to be VERY careful.Which leads me to mention that blaming the item when you cut yourself is like blaming a knife for being too sharp. If the mandoline blades weren't sharp, it wouldn't work and consumers would be dissatisfied with the product. It is our responsibility to be careful and take the precautions necessary to make sure we don't get cut. Oh, and by the way, I HAVE cut myself with this mandoline...when I wasn't using the protective handle because the item was too large and didn't fit it. MY fault completely!I'm very satisfied with this mandoline. I may upgrade in the future now that I know I will use it and enjoy it, but this is a great starter!
T. Holder: Good tool if you are trying to decide if you want to buy a real one. The blades are sharp enough but the spacers fall out pretty easy. You can't do waffle fries with it's attatchments, which was my whole reason for oredering this. Worth this price.
T. Reinhardt "olivia lee": This is a good item for the price but I would say it is more of a disposable item... I have owned several of them. It doesnt stay sharp all that long. Even when its new it works best on hard-ish vegetables like carrots or zucchini or potatos and less well on *juicy* veggies like onions or cucumbers. The more watery veggies tend to slice more unevenly and break apart. It also slices best with just straight slicing even tho there are other slicing heads. It comes with a *safty* grip to put in the veggies so you dont cut your hand but i have found it isnt sharp enough to hold most vegetable, nor are the spikes long enough to grip the vegetable even if they will go into them. This is an *okay* unit... for as inexpensive as it is. Mandolines can be very expensive but I am at the point where I have bought several I am thinking that it might be more cost effective to buy a more *professional* model... If you dont do much slicing and would only use something like this rarely, this might be a cost effective way to go. But if you would want to use this on a more regular basis, I would go with something more high-end.
Uncle Genie: I've worked as a professional cook in a busy restaurant kitchen which had two different models of pro-grade mandolines, but I have this one at home. If you're slicing a zillion of something, then the complex settings of a pro-grade may be worth the trouble--but then, why not use a food processor? For home work, though, I've been using this little model with good results for over 5 years, using all its blades on all sorts of veggies and fruit (and once or twice on my knuckles when I got too lazy to use the holder). I modify pressure and speed to compensate for food characteristics and tend to use the holder only when my knuckles start to get close to the cutting surface. I recommend it to my friends as a handy, simple to operate, easy to clean kitchen gadget, great for the price.
V. Cummings "victorc1978": I bought this one for simply slicing some potatoes for a dish where I needed all the sliced to be the same. When I used it I was disappointed! The blade is not very sharp and when I use the other blades to make fries it ends up mincing instead of slicing. So it best for slicing and that is it!
