Works very well and easy to use.
Kay R Demyan
Well we are liking this mandoline slicer much much better than the Cuisinart model that we had purchased many years ago.
Chance Rushing
Blade is razor sharp, so cut resistant gloves are useful.

This is an excellent slicer. I've used everything in it from carrots (when making my carrot version of thai papaya salad) julienned into matchstick thickness to wide thin slices of Korean radish. Never failed me.

Two drawbacks though:

1. The safety guard is a joke. It doesn't hold the veggies very well and is a pain to use effectively...which means I usually don't use it. I've cut my fingers on this mandolin twice now, which isn't bad for two years of regular useage, but I don't like the sight of blood so I'll leave it as a major detractor. Luckily for me, I cut myself on the julienne part and not the actual wide slicer. In other words, my finger meat was left shredded but intact. Whew!

2. The metal parts rust. Yep. They rust. Hence the reason I am now shopping around for another slicer. Don't know yet if I'll get another Benriner. Might look into the Bohn.

***Update***
Apparently Benriner realized the metal parts rusted because their mandolins now come with plastic screws to hold the julienne blades in place and to adjust the thickness level.

The French Laundry Cookbook says this is what they use. I'm a banquet cook and this is what we use. They are a great buy and will fit in a roomy knife case. Those little safety handles don't work on any of the plastic mandolines from any maker, and we have a classic expensive stainless steel mandoline that NO ONE at work is willing to use, because it doesn't have a safety handle either, but grave bodily damage promises to be far greater in severity. There is a Shun mandoline (retail 500$) that actually has a handle connected to a sliding rail that looks like it will work in theory, but Cook's Illustrated rated it at the bottom. Watch your fingers, hold veggies with a towel and use the leftover scrap for a stockpot instead of trying to get the last chip from a potato or shred from a carrot.

Compared to some of the other plastic, lower cost mandolins the Super Benriner feels much sturdier than most and delivers in all the necessary areas. The blades are sharp and decent quality, the size is perfect for most general kitchen uses and the four blades give the average cook all that they will need. Along with some basic steps in care, such as washing and drying the unit and blades right after use, the Benriner should last it's price.

This unit does not have those "handy" legs like some of the others and I feel that makes it sturdier but it also means you don't have that convenience (I prefer sturdy over convenient). There aren't any "no skid" pads on the bottom edges so you need to create your own sturdy blocking (I run mine up against a large wooden cutting block which works fine but this is one improvement I would like to see on the unit). The slot for the 3 changeable blades is easy enough to figure out but one really needs to tighten the two "holder" screws tight or the blade will slide out while cutting (not a safe thing to happen on a mandolin). The method (two screws) for setting the cutting height is a bit cumbersome but I think this is another place where sturdiness wins over convenience in a lower-end device.

So, the only two things I'd like to see changed on this unit are the addition of some "no-skid" rubber edges and a more effective and easier way to secure the interchangeable blades.

Overall, a good lower-end, starter mandolin.

Whatever Amazon's calling it, this is in fact the "Super Benriner"--big brother to the regular Benriner. What's different? Well, it's beige instead of green, it has metal adjustment and blade holder knobs, and it's much, much wider. Cuts like a dream, but the hand guard is still something of a joke and a Kevlar glove would be a good idea regardless of how careful you think you might be.

My one complaint is that the white-ish plastic stains pretty easily. Carrots will leave a big orange smear on the surface.

THis is a great item which is used several times per week in my kitchen, primarily for slicing cucumbers, carrots, potatoes, and other vegetables. the basice slicing blade stays sharp and is easy to adjust. Careful! It's easy to cut yourself! I suggest getting a kevlar or other cut-resistant glove (such as the steel gloves used by fish mongers or meat packers); I find them to be more convenient and more useful than the plastic holding tool. The finest julienne blade was a problem for me; if I slammed a hard carrot through its teeth, occasionally the teeth bent; be careful that the vertical thicknes of the julienne is not more than the width of the julienne cuts. I don't care for having to keep track of the separate blades when they're not in the slicer, but it's not much different than tracking accessories for a mixer or a Cuisinart.

I have a Bron stainless steel mandoline, whcih costs well over $100 more but the Benriner is what I turn to again and again.

After more than a year of daily use, by myself and my coworkers, someone "borrowed" my last BN3, making this the second I have purchased, and I am sure it will not be the last.

Pros:
1) This tool is SHARP and it stays that way even under the use of a professional kitchen staff.
2) It is easy to sharpen with a removable main blade. (for those who doubt their ability to sharpen the blade, most knife stores will be happy to sharpen it for you for about $5 if you remove it
for them)The additional blades, used for julianne cuts and the like, are easy to sharpen as well, or inexpensive to replace.
3) It is durable, made from ABS resin. (if we can't break it in the restaurant, you won't break it in your home)
4) It is a simple design, nothing complicated and it does exactly what it is meant to do better than many other much more expensive products, adjustments are easy and quick with only 2 screws.
5) Its 45 degree angled blade cuts cleaner than a 90 degree blade found in many European designs.
6) It is inexpensive, if some one had "borrowed" a $200+ mandolin, I would have been much more upset than to simply replace this tool.

Cons:
1) This tool is SHARP and it stays that way even under the use of a professional kitchen staff. (Not one of my coworkers have not slipped and lost the pad of a finger at least once.)
2) ABS stains easily and some materials, such as clove oil, can dissolve the plastic. Not a big deal really. (after a year, my previous BN3 was still cream colored, but slightly orange in places from carrots and I don't know about your grocery store, but mine doesn't even carry clove oil.
