I do not have a spiral slicer and l was wondering if someone could clarify a question for me. What is the difference between the Saladacco and the Mandolin. I was told the Mandolin does not spiral cut. Can anyone enlighten me please? Thx

YEP, the saladaco, is a baby appliance, with a little bowl underneith, it can do two things, it can spiral slice, or it can manke spiral slices with baby tiny little pieces, like angel hair pasta out of firm veggies.
the Mandoline, is a large cutting appliance, much like a "V" slicer, but more sturdy, you can change the blades to slice, or crinkle cut, wiggle cut, julienne, french fry etc, and you can change the thickness from paper thin to wide thick slices, it comes with no bowl underneath, and cuts straight, you can really hurt yourself on one, if you aren't careful, I've cut myself several times badly. YIKES!!!
They are wonderful, but I use my little "V" slicer by Bjorne much more often than my big beautiful Mandoline (stainless steele and all)
I like the "V" slicer for making slices and julienne, easy to clean, light weight, has a bowl underneath (attachment) and I've had it a long time
I got my mandoline a couple of years ago, I used it once, and I've had other people use it when we were doing food prep, and we end up always going back to the "V" slicer, so much easier to use, in my opinion.
this is a pic of a mandoline, although mine was about twice this price, I got all the attachments

Thanks for your wealth of info. Where did you get your V slicer by Bjorne? Is it actually called a V slicer?
