THIS PRODUCT IS CHEAP, FLIMSY, DIFFICULT TO USE, AND WASTEFUL. I tried on three occasions to slice tomates, oranges, and julience carrots. The tomatoes tore, the oranges stuck on the bottom of the slicer, and the carrots stuck in the blade.
Furthermore, the product is not nearly as safe as it seems. Because the blade is horizontal, rather than angled, it takes much more force to push the food across the blade than on a traditional or Japanese mandolin. Using the hand protector is clumsy and you have little control over the food, but if you don't use it, you run a serious risk of cutting yourself.
Buy this at your own risk. Perhaps I'm spoiled after using the real thing, but I recommend saving the money to buy a real mandolin. If you must have a mandolin, but don't want to spend the money, buy a Japanese mandolin, lay the bottom on a damp towel or a rubber jar opener, and slice away from yourself. Happy Cooking.
The unused blade holder doesn't hold the unused blades very snuggly at all. They rattle around and tumble out every time I move it.
Unfortunately, when mine arrived, it had what I assume was a manufacturing defect, in the form of an extra plastic bump, that prevent me from inserting the blades properly. This mostly caused confusion (and ample opportunity to grab it by that really sharp blade while wrestling with it!) I had to use a bench file to clear the path, but once fixed, it worked fine. I hope this was a rarity and just my bad luck.
Note that "stainless steel" refers to the blade and the bowl only, not the rest of the working parts, which are plastic.
I bought this thinking it would be much faster to use and clean than my Cuisinart. It was neither.
So, my recommendation is buy a higher quality mandoline or a Cuisinart .... or slice and dice by hand which I do unless there are large quantities. Also, I cut myself fairly severely in using it three times. I believe I am the third person to state such in their comment .... and thanks Amazon for taking it back! :-)

The bowl is sturdy and keeps you from making a mess like most mandolins do. The cover for the bowl is a nice added touch. My only negative is STORAGE. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Mr. PKG

Every home chef needs a mandoline. This comes with a sturdy aluminum bowl, a bonus that other mandoline slicers don't supply, plus storage for the different pieces.Published on January 19, 2013 by susan wenz
That applies here. Product was pretty flimsy except for the bowl and the guides and blades didn't work very well. Read morePublished on December 20, 2012 by Palouse
