L. Cai: I bought this one as a replacement. It doesn't take out much room. Comfortable to hold. It is super sharp. Not sure how long this sharpness will last since I only got it recently. When use thin slice for potato, lemon, carrot, and ginger, I got 2mm thin slices; but for onion, I got 3mm slices. Won't do good job at slicing tomato at all. The thick slices measured 5mm~6mm. For string cuts, they are size 3mm and 9mm. I gave it 3 stars is because I was expecting the slices would be a little bit thinner, won't say 0.5 mm paper thin but about 1mm~1.5mm.
Loreece: Have used my mandoline for mainly hard vegetables and works well so far. Use my magic bullet for grating hard cheese. FYI from personal experience, DO NOT ever use any mandoline without the safety grip!!While the mandoline may have difficulty slicing some "soft" vegetables, it will have no problem at all slicing soft tissue such as your fingers. In the future, I won't ever be in such a great hurry that I forget use the safety grip. Yeah buddy, I sure learned my lesson on using kitchen tools properly.
Lynn Hoffman, author:Radiation Days: A Comedy: It's important to remember that it's almost impossible to sharpen theblade on any mandoline. That means that even the most expensive onesare essentially disposeable-when the blade gets dull, the mandoline isdone.So any reasonably sturdy mounting of a very sharp blade will do most ofthe jobs that any cook would want done and there is very little reason topay more for the sort of virtues that we might admire in other tools.I have stored somewhere a beautiful French-made mandoline that was givento me a dozen years ago. The blade is dull after a lot of hard use and there'sno hope for re-sharpening. It cost about $150.I use my plastic Progressive all the time.It's four years old and when it finallydulls out, I'll throw it away. Economical and disposeable and highly recommended.Lynn Hoffman--Author of The New Short Course in Wine and the eternally sharpnovel bang BANG.
M. Hammond "ColemanFlGuy": i needed it to make slices of potato, cucumber, and onion etc. it cuts onion really nice. it works great for these items. i don't know how long it will last yet. the price was great so it's no big deal to me. it seems to be safe to use as long as you put that top cap piece onto the vegetable item to hold it securely. when it gets down to that last piece i just toss it into the garbage and i want to keep my fingers away from that sharp blade. right now i am very happy with this purchase and item. the quality seems to be okay. i will update if anything happens.update: it works great!update: march 01 2012: it is still working great. i use it several times a week and i am so happy i bought it. it slices onions up into delicious thing round circles.update: july 11 2013 i use it all the time. i always rinse it off after each use. never touch the blades with your fingers. always hold onto the top cap that holds the vegetable into place and never let go until you have completed the slicing. it will protect your fingers. it works great and i am still very happy with this purchase.
Neddie Ludd "Neddie Ludd": I just chimed in to add a one-star rating. The product is flimsy, a pain to change blades (& they pop out anyway), and lost sharpness after 2 or 3 uses. Everything now gets stuck under the blade halfway thru a slice. This thing is landfill fodder.
