Good heavy stable product.
Pros: multiple easy-change blades, in their own little box / simple depth adjustment / easy cleanup
Cons: I'd rather have a single 'crank-up / crank-down' dial for the depth adjustment. I'd also like a few more holding pins in the slider for skinnier items like cukes.
Great product! We are now ordering one for my sister because we were so impressed with the quality, size and easy cleanup of our madolin! Make sure that you read the directions before operating; the blades can be tricky. Another "tip" is to use a damp kitchen towel underneth the madolin and a cutting board under the towel. Very happy with it! Would make a great housewarming/wedding gift for a cook! The price was very reasonable also!
This mandolin slicer was designed very poorly. You would think, if the manufacturer was going to use good quality materials (stainless steel and heavy plastic accessories), they would want to design a product to match. Not the case here. I'm not sure where the problem lies but the slicer actually mangles the food being sliced. My first attempt was a potato. There were a few crudely sliced pieces under the slicer and the rest was jammed under the steel plate below the blade. Pretty much the same result from the carrot I tried next. I believe part of the problem is the blade going straight across instead of angled. At any rate, I had high hopes when I opened the box and saw how heavy duty it looked but was sadly disappointed and ended up returning it.

Great way to add vegetables to your diet and make them more appealing. I bought this because I have been making spaghetti-like strings using carrots, or beets, or squash and using the hand peeler was time consuming. So I figured I would give this a try.
The thinnest blade is still too thick (1 cm wide) for the spaghetti results I was trying to achieve (looks more like a fettuccine), but given the other applications of the product and variety of blades, I am keeping it.

The unkindest cut and its prevention. This little gem seems to be the answer to alot of kitchen wounds and a great investment for male do it yourselfers, ie. cooking. it does all the stuff that takes alot of time for novices in a short time and makes it look great, easily.
This mandolin food slicer is a real convenient food preparation tool. Insertion of the attachments was easy to figure out. I used to have a mandolin made of plastic and didn't like it because it's construction didn't seem substantial enough for me. This one, however, is constructed of a sturdy stainless steel. Don't worry -cleaning it is simple too. I only wish it would have come with suggestions for more uses that I may not have already thought of. I'm glad I bought it.
Hello killop, Thank you for your inquiry! It will cut as thin as paper which is approximately 0.1 Millimeter. I hope this helps. Happy shopping!overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 27, 2013
