View Full Version : Which Mandoline?

aren't these similar, but in price?
I have the second one, the Swissmar Borner V-Slicer Plus. Read the reviews on Amazon and see what people liked and didn't like. I'm completely happy with mine although I don't use it a whole lot. I went with one that I thought was the safest and I like that everything fits into a holder so you don't have blades just lying around.

I have had FOUR! Ranging from $15-$200. The best one so far has been the V-Slicer. The V shape is very helpfull in the cutting process. This one is strong and well made for the plastic variety.
The $200 one from Williams Sonoma I returned three times and ended up with Oxo one for about $80. The V-slicer is still the best.

I have a mandoline slicer from Pampered Chef, and have never been able to get it to cut properly. What's the tip for getting things like zucchini to cut evenly?? I'm alittle scared of it too. Very sharp. DH actually cut the very tip off one of his fingers because he was not using the safety "thingy".
I would like to use mine more....but as of now, it just sits in the cabinet.
It also doesn't seem to cut hard veggies (like jicama, or sweet potatoes) properly, maybe because it's too hard???

I have the Borne (or whatever it is) one. Works like a charm!
