Product Description

The Swissmar V-Prep V-Slicer Mandoline set is a joint venture by two well established kitchenware companies. As long term partners, Swissmar clearly knows that Börner, with their 50+ years of experience and being the makers of the Original V-Slicer®, were the perfect manufacturer of the V-Prep V-Slicer. Combined with the Swissmar designed multi-functional bowl, this set provides everything you need - it's safe, easy to use, compact, stores completely protected and offers the performance and results that one expects from a Börner made V-Slicer. You too can prepare foods like a professional, with the safe and simple to use V-Prep. The V-Prep Mandoline is made of durable ABS plastic with German surgical grade stainless steel blades. Three inserts allow you to slice, julienne and shred cuts. The ambidextrous Food Safety Holder has a serrated edge to safely push food off slicer and requires very little pressure. Steel pins grip most sizes and shapes of produce to create even slices every time. The multi- function bowl with lid stores all parts when not in use and catches all sliced fruits and vegetables when in use. Easy to clean; rinse under hot or cold running water immediately after use.

And very easy to clean.

The fact that it's self contained and has a tray to catch the food, with a lid, is great.

These are very very sharp.

I had the original V-slicer, but the ex-wife took it. I shopped around for a replacement, but could not find anything that really would replace my V-slicer - but this. It is almost Identical to the V, but has a slightly less sturdy frame - unless you put it on the included holder. Then, it works like the original (which gets excellent reviews) but has a place to catch the food and associated juices. The non-slip rubber pads on the holder work great, and eliminated the one problem I had with the original - that it would slide around.

If you get this, just remember that it is the speed, not the force with which you slice, that makes all the difference.

I've had a couple of mandolines in the past, and my experience was that they were super cheap and didn't work at all. They were complete piles of junk, and dangerous because they didn't cut well, causing it to stick and your hand to slip.

This one slices extremely well, it's almost scary. When I first got it, I did a trial slice of a red potato. I didn't think it was working properly because there was no force needed at all. I looked down and half the potato was sliced already. When I say no force needed, I don't mean a little force, or hardly any force. I mean it felt like nothing was happening.

I got this because I recently purchased a dehydrator, and need thin, even slices of food. This definitely does the trick. It's pretty well made, has enough attachments to do any thickness I want, and has the julienne slicers at two thicknesses.

The thick straight slice is great for just about anything, and the thin slicer is paper thin. Super thin red onions are great for pizzas, sandwiches, or salads. I am pretty decent with a knife, but I can't slice this thin.

Although the manual specifically warns against it, I tried out the 'spin it 90 degrees' trick to see if it would dice, and it definitely works. Pull it back over the julienne prongs, then twist it, then go down, repeat... Perfect little cubes.

Try dicing an onion like that with the smallest julienne attachment... tiny little onion cubes, works GREAT in meatloaf.

The hand guard thing works pretty well, and normally I feel pretty confident with it.. however I was slicing bananas, and they were just too squishy to use the hand guard. I started doing it without the guard, got distracted for a split second, and almost took off the tip of my finger.

I recently moved into my first apartment. Well, it is still run by the University, but at least I have my own kitchen. This seemed like a good addition for when I have to slice or dice a fair amount of food stuffs - at least until my knife skills get better.

First, the pros. The blades are sharp. As long as you move in a fast, consistent motion, you might wonder if there is any resistance at all. That's been my experience with vegetables and potatoes, anyway, which is what this was made to cut. Cheese is a different matter. That is too soft and sticky. The bin catches everything easily, so there are no worries there.

Next, the stuff that takes some getting used to. The washing is generally easy, but there are a couple of support braces on the bottom that are not sell positioned, so cleaning the bottom of the main blade takes some work. Also, using the hand guard takes some practice. It is easy to push the item off the pins before it is necessary, which leads to inadequate support of the food item while cutting. That item can be pulled out of the guard while there is plenty left to cut. It is equally easy not to apply enough pressure and have the remainder of the food item inside the guard while you go through the motion but don't cut anything at all. Once you figure out the right amount of pressure, the guard provides safe operation that barely wastes anything at all.

Now for the unfortunate. When I was looking into Swissmar Borner, I saw some promotional videos (I think on their website) that showed the ability to adjust the height. This model does not have that. There are a few different inserts with different heights, but that is the extent of the possible adjustments. You can do thin slices, thick slices, thick fries, or thin fries.

I bought this slicer because of all the great reviews it had. And it is an excellent slicer. I bought this model since it had the catch container. This works perfectly with the slicer. The slicer fits into grooves on the container and with the rubber pieces on the bottom, it doesn't move at all. In fact, when I was done with it I tried to push it out of the way. Forget it. It just won't slide; which is a good thing.

I have tried it using fruit and veg's and it works beautifully. Nice uniform pieces. Used the julienne attachments and they were perfect. You do need to keep moving the produce with the holder and do NOT go too slow, especially when using the thick side. If you go to slow the produce will get hung up on the blade. Just keep it moving at a steady pace.

The one thing that does annoy me however is the absence of a blade guard. This whole unit stores in the container with a lid which is great, BUT when it is sitting around or especially after you just washed it, that blade is open and dangerous. If you are not aware, you could easily grab it out of the drain board and do some real damage. Every single model SHOULD have a blade guard to protect you. That is why I took off 1 star.

One other note - Amazon said this was in stock yet they took 3 days to ship it. Why? I have dealt with Amazon for years and have ALWAYS had great service with shipping. Another product I ordered, they did the same thing. Why waiting so long until shipping out?
