Product Description

Product Description

It all started in 1956 when Alfred Börner, a toolmaker by profession, started the business manufacturing an onion cutter. This cutter was made of wood with four razor-sharp blades bent in such a way to make cutting onions into cubes easy work. This one invention sparked many more, and product demand increased worldwide. Börner has become a well established company over the last 50 years, producing state of the art kitchen tools in Germany. They manufacture the finest quality vegetable slicers and mandolins on the market today and are leaders in design and technology. From the V-Slicer Plus to the Combi-Chef and Veg' Art Prep Tool, Börner products help add creativity to any gourmet meal. For specific food preparation styles, the Design Line Series was created in the late 1990’s. Beginning with the Thin Julienne Slicer to the latest V-Wave Waffle Slicer, the addition of these various individual slicers makes creating a culinary masterpiece an easy and enjoyable task. You too can prepare foods like a professional, with safe and simple-to-use Börner products. The V-Slicer Plus Mandoline is made of durable ABS plastic with German surgical grade stainless steel blades. 7mm and 3.5mm blades will julienne or shred cuts; slicing insert will cut thick or thin slices. The ambidextrous Food Safety Holder has a serrated edge to safely push food off slicer, requires very little pressure. Steel pins grip most sizes and shapes of produce to create even slices every time. The caddy with safety clip offers easy storage. Easy to clean; rinse under hot or cold running water immediately after use.


An inexpensive alternative to a professional stainless-steel mandoline, this device makes it possible to quickly, uniformly, and safely slice and julienne vegetables and fruits. It also shreds cabbage and neatly dices potatoes, tomatoes, and onions. For safety, a holder firmly grips food with stainless-steel prongs so fingers are protected from the German surgical-steel blades, and the three inserts accompanying the device lock in position. The inserts act as a guide for slicing against the V-frame's knife that reverses to create slices either 1/4-inch or 1/16-inch thick and two julienne inserts for creating 1/8-inch or 3/8-inch strips. For storage, the V-frame, all three inserts, and the safety holder fit into a caddy that can stand upright on the counter, lie flat in a drawer, or hang on the wall. Made of rugged plastic, the device measures 15 inches long and 6 inches wide when assembled for storage. --Fred Brack

It has been a great investment and has paid for itself, many many times over. I use it more often than any other gadget in my kitchen. Clean up is simple, just rinse and store in back in it's holder, it drips dry with no rusting and the blades are still super sharp after being used pretty much daily since November of 1999.

I use it to dice onions and peppers in seconds when I make chili, sloppy joes or tacos. I use it whenever I make hashbrowns, potato chowder, potatoes au gratin or even french fries as I can safely and swiftly slice potatoes into cubes, thick or thin strips, chips, scalloped slices or fries. It can julienne tender-crisp delicate slices of veggies for stir-fry or a salad or side dish. You can make quick easy carrot and celery sticks for snacking, cucumber slices for salads, tomato slices for burgers -- you name it this does it.

I love my Borner V-slicer and recommend it to everyone. I still buy this for every wedding gift and housewarming party that I've attended since 1999! Yes, there are less expensive mandolins and more expensive ones, but for the ease of use, super quick clean up, handy storage/safety holder and just overall sturdiness and reliability of this little tool I rate it 5 stars all around. I know I sound a bit over the top raving about it, buy I could not recommend it more enthusiastically.

Wait--I can! This thing rocks! Buy it, try it, you will adore it!

It has drastically reduced my preparation time on many dishes and it has become as essential to my kitchen as my chef's knife and fry pan. But again, this is a high quality product with German-made blades that stay sharp longer than you will. It's super sharp and slicey.

I bought my first Borner at a kiosk in a mall in 1991. It was really expensive. It was $20. It came with a crisscross fry cutter if I bought TWO. ( I am smiling) So I did. I gave my mom one. I used that slicer pretty much every day until 2000. I decided to treat myself to a new blade and KEPT the old one for camping at Burning Man.
I have the second one right now, fourteen years later.
I was a cook at home girl with a lot of veggies, but over the last few years I ramped that up.
I have cooked three full meals for four plus people every day for more than four years.
The V bottom is dull so I use the guide and cut carrots on the higher part of the V (towards the sides).
When I say carrots, I mean a pound at a time for dinner. This is the BEST and fastest veggy slicer I have ever used.
You could make sushi veggies on it! I LOVE this item. The only issue is that it never gets put away.
Salads, omelets, nachos, soup...

I purchased the V-Slicer over ten years ago and it has been a faithful companion in the kitchen. The speed with which it slices/dices onions makes it more than worth the price. You can make french fries or julienne fries, onion rings, scalloped potatoes, carrot or celery sticks...the list is endless! Cleanup is no more than a rinse under water. The safety holder ensures that you won't be suffering any mishaps. But for safety's sake, keep this appliance away from the kids. The blades are VERY SHARP and can deliver a nasty cut if you don't handle them carefully. For that reason, I never wash them in the sink where suds can hide them and risk injury. But these warnings aside, this is a wonderful and versatile tool. It is as useful as a mandoline at a fraction of the price. You will reach for it often and the V-Slicer will be one of your favorite and most used kitchen tools.

I used this slicer for sandwich prep in my restaurant for 14 years.
Averaged 200 lbs tomatoes & 50 lbs onions per week. After about
a year it would lose a little edge but I took it home for personal
use or gave them out to customers. Superior over restaurant types
(never used my Tomato King... again). Its cheap and easy to
clean & sanitize. Beware of cheaper plastic types.
The V blade is the best...

This slicer is very difficult to use, especially with any speed. The "food safety holder" is a major pitfall. It's large and unwieldy--and very hard to use with any foods that don't actually fit up inside the center of it. With long veggies like yellow squash or zuccini, you only get 2-3 slices before you hit the holder and the food falls off. You can cut the vegetable into smaller pieces that fit up inside the holder, but this makes long slices impossible. (I like to julienne squash/zuccini lengthwise to substitute for pasta in low-carb cooking.) Once you cut it to fit in the holder, the pieces are too short to use as noodles. I'm sure they added the wide guard for safety purposes, but when the food almost immediately falls off and your hand goes sliding down without it, it's actually more dangerous. There are no tracks to keep it in place on top of the slicer when you're working closer to the blades, or guides to prevent it from slipping sideways. It is also very difficult to keep over a bowl; it has no grips and you have to hold it with one hand and try to slice with the other. It slides around and slips off the bowl rim, which is really dangerous for the fingers. The blades are good and sharp, but because of the holder and lack of grips for staying on the bowl, I can work faster--and safer--with a good sharp chef's knife.

UPDATE: 4/19/2011. I mentioned in my originial review that the holder/guard on this product makes it difficult, and maybe even a little dangerous, to use. This morning, it slid sideways and took my hand with it--avulsing the top digit of my pinky finger. I used this product exactly according to the instructions and am an experienced cook, but I had a lot of trouble with the guard sliding around or pulling sideways on the V-shaped blades.
