I'm a kitchen gadget-aholic and have wanted a mandolin for awhile and when I got a gift certificate for Overstock, I thought this one might be good because it's advertised as having 5 blades.....NOT TRUE!!! Only TWO of the 5 "blades" in the pictured holder are actually blades.....the other 3 just change the thickness of the slices that the mandolin makes......kinda false advertising if you ask me.
The other disappointment was the lack of instructions for what each of the other two "blades" actually do.....the two are almost identical.....only a slight difference is spacing.
On the positive side, it appears to be sturdy but only time will tell.
It really slices. It sliced the white 'safety cover' and then it sliced open my palm. When it works, it's magic. When it attacks, it's painful. There's other mandolin slicers on the site - look at those, this is not worth the low cost. Storage is clunky. Overall, not a fan and it's already been trashed.

Product was missing a part when it arrived. Not sure how it would work since I didn't have a chance to use it, but the product did look flimsy and not durable. Base on that I decided to return it for a refund instead of exchanging it.

I have only gotten to use my slicer once, but it cut perfectly. And unlike my previous mandolin slicer, there is no adjustment knob to break rendering the machine useless. I love the separate guide plates and am really glad to have the security plate to prevent accidentally cutting myself on the blades. So all in all, except for the price, this is a great product that I look forward to using for many years to come.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly the same.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be very sturdy.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Right on.
This product is inferior. The stand collapses at will, and the inserts are labeled...but are raised lettering...white on white and nearly impossible to see. The blades are sharp, yes...so my recommendation, if you value the use of your limbs...would be to toss it in the trash! It is neither convenient nor easy to use, Buyer beware...you get what you pay for.
I wish I could return this product but I took too long to use it for the first time. The julianne is a joke, there's no safe way to use it. I tried the safety guard but it was useless. The only thing this does ok is the slicing and only when you have a large piece of veggie or fruit. I was so looking forward to loving this, but it's just going into the trash.
