I just want to say that the marketing photos are fairly disingenuous. If you want to use that cabbage on this thing you are in for a bad time. Same with larger tubers like yams. The blade is not sharp enough to handle these well and since you can't adjust thickness, it might be useless for you for sauerkraut and frustrating for slaws. If you are using it for tomatoes and cucumbers and shredding carrots then this is fine (Although I suspect the blades would dull fast on these too), otherwise save your moeny and get an oxo, Japanese, or Borner one. Trust me, I thought I could cheap out when I saw this one at Winners in the fall. Starfrit just doesn't make good mandonlines.

Pro tip: USE THE SAFETY GUIDE.

Seriously, as someone who has lost fingertips and part of a knuckle to one of these things, use of the guard is vital, and this one looks like it comes with a decent one.

Agree, a friend took off a chunk of her finger and end up in emergency.

Looks like a dangerous item from what I read!

The dull blade will be resistant and when you’re about 90% done slicing, you’ll try to get the last couple of slices out by supporting the vegetable with your thumb. It will be stuck until the right amount of force is applied. You’ll apply it gradually but this doesn’t cut gradually, eventually it will slip down along with a piece of your thumb. Always use the guard and be prepared to discard 10%-15% of each product you use.

Costco had an Art+Cook all stainless steel mandolin for $54.95, I grabbed it a few weeks ago when they cleared it out for $19.97. It came with a guard and a cut resistant glove, these gloves are available separately on Amazon. Strongly recommended.

I grabbed one as well . The adjustable thickness was a nice feature. I doubt that any Costco's will still have inventory left.

I want a mandoline slicer now lol

Anyone suggest a good quality one? More importantly a safe one.

I think I had a slicer a few years ago, used it a few times but I don’t think very good. Probably why I don’t use it.

I don’t mind paying a bit for something that does a good efficient job with tomatoes, onions , peppers, celery? Potatoes etc

Thanks
