This is one of a most useful kitchen gadgets I've ever owned. It grates cheese really well, but cuts potatoes amazingly well. I sliced two pounds of red potatoes in less than 5 minutes using this neat tool. I look forward to using it for carrots, celery, and lots of other items. It's a must-have for anyone who needs slicing or grating done super, super quick.

The issues with a mandoline/slicer/grater entail applying adequate force and movement to a sharp enough blade. The blades in this device are sharp enough, I think, and they come with a heavy plastic storage box. The hopper is a good concept because it keeps your hands entirely away from the cutting blades, but the idea doesn't work well enough here. The food pusher is a bit difficult to raise (to load the food), but downward pressure once the hopper is loaded may not be adequate. Similarly, the handle spring is about as strong as you would want to squeeze, but is too weak to return the blade for the next stroke. Additionally, there is no convenient grip to permit you to steady the device with your other hand. The result is that it can only do light duty work, and slowly.

Possibly this device could work well if a crank were used to move the blades and a grip were added to steady the device. As it stands, there are numerous ways to grate and slice more quickly and easily without adding this device to the clutter in your kitchen. If I decide I can't live without Julienne-ing things, I'll be looking for a sturdy mandoline, along with cut-resistant gloves. I'll just have to decide whether an effective julienne device is worth the cost.

this mandoline slicer is the worst ever. it chews up the food, some lands on top of the slicer, some stuck in the blade, some falls out. also not good for arthritic hands, this is too much effort and never consistent slices. tried slicing sweet potatoes to dehydrate, and it failed miserably.

My wife bought this because of limited use of her hands grasping small items. I have no such problem and gave it a try. I was very dissapointed.

Pros:
Nice idea. OK for cucumber, radish, mushrooms and small soft veggies.

Cons: Totally failed on carrots. The "hopper is about 2x2x2inches, so you have to cutup the food anyway to use this. Tried the shredder attachment on carrots, wouldn't shred and had to pull the mechanism back manually after every pull of the handle. Next I tried the grater blade. Cut up the carrots in nice little sticks and nicely stacked them in the hopper like a pack of cigarettes. Sometimes some shreds would come out, mostly nothing. Have to use over an overly large bowl as the carrot shreds go far and wide.

I was a little skeptical about buying something that essentially slices potatoes one slice at a time, but found that yes this does save time and yes I like the way it slices. If you bake them in an oven you get many that come out almost like potato chips depending on how long you leave it in the oven. This may be due to the evenness of the slices which makes it very tasty and nice. I have only used it a couple of times, but expect to have this around for a long time. I already own a french fry slicer so I will probably not use the other blades.

I bought this because I needed something to speed up my veggie prep, but I'm not ready to pay full price for a proper mandoline. Also, I'm tired of shaving tiny layers from the knuckle of my thumb with our stand-up shredder.

This slicer is only "one handed" for a few minutes. Really, it should be called "Right-handed, Left-handed, both hands, then Right-handed again". But, I don't think that matters.

PROS:

The blades are sharp.

As far as convenience and speed, this contraption is quite handy. 6lbs of full sized carrots zipped through this slicer just last night without any problems, cleanup was simple, and my knuckles are very happy.

**NOTE** Veggies that taper must be placed with the wide side down, or half up and half down. Otherwise it will jam up every time.

Also, I can hold the mandoline slicer right over my dehydrator trays. Slice, slice and slide the trays right in, couldn't be simpler.

CONS:

This is not a tool that should be looked at for long term use. Judging by the light weight and the feel of the moving parts, I gauge this slicer to have about a year or so of usefullness.

It is made from cheap plastic and your foods will stain it.

Bottom line:

If you are looking for a mandoline that will get you through many upcoming years of garden harvest then you have to pay more than $20. If you want something handy and cheap, this is it.
