I have owned and used 4 different mandolines before purchasing the OXO model. I can honestly say, the adage "you get what you pay for" was never my true than trying to find a mandoline that was easy to operate, offered multiple cutting type and sizes, and was easy to disassemble and assemble for cleaning. The slicing thicknesses went from 1/16 to 1/2 inch, which I found fantastic, because I like my onions sliced thin and my tomatoes sliced thick. It has worked on all kinds of vegetables and fruits from Potatoes and apples to zucchini and peaches. I not only would recommend this to family and friends, My niece has requested one for Christmas, so that's 1 gift purchased on my list.

I've always sliced my fruit and vegetables by hand (knife) but since I've become vegetarian, I need to prep my food the day before and use a variety of vegetables to prepare my meals. Using the slicer was nice until I tried to change the blades. I almost cut myself because the blades are very sharp. Also, the holder that holds the food in place does not allow for smaller tomatoes, potatoes, etc. I'm taking this back to the store right now! I will use the handheld slicer until a better more easier use product comes along.

I love the compact design of this mandolin. The blades are sharp. Extra blades are stored underneath the unit. Very easy to clean. Sturdy construction. I will use this for years to come.

At first it's a little difficult to put together, but, once u get the knack, it's a piece of cake. Dish washer safe. Slices great...fast and the blades do exactly what they say.
