View Full Version : Mandolin Slicer
11-26-2008, 09:07 AM
I'm thinking about getting one of these and wanted to know if anyone had suggestions as to which is best. I did the banana search and found a few threads but nothing that really recommended one over another.
I mainly want it to make really thin slices, like for chips or rawviolies, and will probably will occasionally use it for slicing large volumes of stuff.
thanks. And Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

I have owned a few of them. The first one I bought only had one slice thickness setting. Later was I was able to find one that Orka made which has a knob on the side where you can do any thickness you want by turning the knob.
I bought my Orka from QVC and looked for you to see if I could list their item # for it but it doesnt look like they carry it any longer. My best advice would be to get one that gives you some kind of option on slice thickness.

I have a $10 slicer from CND Tire that is a godsend!! I love it. Immediately after, I received a gift of a $50 mandolin from Linens 'N' Things, and it doesn't slice a thing. In fact, it's just awful!!
Either way, go for a V blade. I find it works much better.

Thanks to both of you. Especially the tip about the V-blade. I didn't know if that was good or bad.
Just another thing to put on my Christmas List. :)

I have a cuisenart one that is just okay. It certainly does the job, but depending on what you are slicing, you have to put some force behind it. And that scares me (that blade is sharp!). Now I'm thinking it's because it's a flat blade. I need a V blade.

I have a Borner V-Slicer, and I like it a lot.
