A. M. Doyle: I bought this mandoline on the recommendation of Cooks' Illustrated magazine, who said it's just not worth spending the money for an expensive one.
Anonymous: My husband is obsessed with this little gadget. He says it really makes cooking fun! Works well with potatoes. Slicing is difficult when what you are slicing becomes small (watch your fingers), but it is still very useful.
Arenne: As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a bargain. Also the safety grip doesn't have sharp enough or long enough teeth to hold the food safely. I use this frequently and have noticed the blade dulling. The straight slice and the julienne work the best. Buyer beware: this can be VERY dangerous. I sliced my middle fingertip off when the grip slipped off a potato. It healed, but it was a painful injury that may not have happened if the grip on this mandoline was designed better. It is easy to clean, but bulky to store.
bigblue1: But works great on potatoes carrots cucumbers and the such. Yes the product has a sharp blade and could be considered dangerous but so do scissors, knives and razors. Duh!
camisdad "camisdad": I have owned this mandoline for 3 years. I used it extensively for several months. Its defects caused me to use it less and less, to the extent that I have not used it at all for the past 6 months.The Good - different blades, reasonably sharp, good protection for the fingers.The Bad - the plastic is simply flexing too much - if you are cutting something even remotely hard (such as celeriac, or even an old big carrot) it will flex so much that your slices will not conform at all to the size you want them to be, and the blade will not be in the proper position to cut. As a result, it is somewhat awkward and difficult to do a reasonable slicing job with it. In addition, the holder sometimes slips from the veggie at the worst possible moment (its plastic is also flexing too much...) which results in your hand suddenly moving quickly in the vicinity of the blade but not in the intended direction.This slicer was designed to cheaply replace an expensive metal mandoline - well, it is a cheap replacement for it in all senses of the word. To be honest though, since being dissatisfied with it I have bought a true metal mandoline, which does not suffer from these problems but has others - it takes a while to take it apart and clean it, and you cannot use up the veggies. So I am still using primarily my chef's knife for most slicing jobs. I am looking for a better solution still...My guess - I you use it rarely and on the right veggies only, you'll be fine. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a universal slicer to take the place of other tools for juliennes, fries etc. this tool will be a waste of money.Best of luck,camisdad
