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 Pro Mandoline is made of durable ABS plastic with German surgical grade stainless steel blades. Three inserts cube, julienne, slice and shred. One of the inserts is a thick/thin insert for 3 precision thicknesses plus a “zero” safety position to completely cover the V-blade when not in use. The ambidextrous Food Safety Holder has a serrated edge to safely push food off slicer, requires very little pressure that can produce a variety of different cuts. Steel pins grip most sizes and shapes of produce to create even slices every time. An insert holder provides protective storage for extra inserts; acts as a drying. Easy to clean; rinse under hot or cold running water immediately after use.

The Swissmar Borner Plus got the best overall ratings so I decided to go one step above and get the Pro instead.

Very sharp, cuts very thin, make sure you use the hand guard.

I received this as a Christmas gift --one of the best I've ever enjoyed! It is easier, faster and less hassle than my food processor. The first day I got it I used it to slice potatoes for scalloped potatoes and oh my gosh how easy. I find I grab it and go to much more than my electric gadgets (and I admit, I love gadgets...) It's a necessity for what I need lots of--onions (is there a good recipe that does not include onions???) peppers, tomatoes, apples, fennel, etc....it's a wonder on hard fruits and veggies. The clean up is quick, the hand-guard/pusher is easy and actually works, (I've even used this thing with celery!) and the attachments fit and store very well in the rack that's included. (And very safely)

My only complaint is that the plastic seems to stain with carrot or tomato. In the big scheme of things....no biggie.

I love this thing!

I have been using the regular V-Slicer mandolin for several years! It's a definite must-have in the kitchen but be careful...it is super sharp and will slice your finger through the bone if you use it without the guard and don't pay 100% attention to what you are doing!!! No kidding! By far the cheapest and most practical alternative to a professional stainless-steel mandoline. I am getting this professional set as a back-up. This is the best value on the market and I have tried using a few others only to come back to this one. In fact, I travel with it sometimes and slice apples etc in my hotel/billetting room. The V-Slicer very quickly, attractively and uniformly slices and juliennes vegetables and fruits. I shred cabbages, plantains, beets, celery, potatoes, tomatoes, onions and many more.

I just tried out my new V-Slicer Pro - my very first time using a mandoline - and it's impressive. I can't believe I've spent my entire adult life slicing and shredding everything with just a knife! This thing is fast and precise and when you use the safety holder, it seems very safe. Just to be sure, I purchased and used a Victorinox cut resistant glove (Victorinox Cutlery UltraShield Cut Resistant Glove, Medium), which is excellent and which I also highly recommend. I linked to the medium size but I got the glove in XS - it was the only cut-resistant glove I could find that runs that small.

The mandoline is also very easy to care for -- just lock the blade into the safety setting, run under hot water, and set out to dry. It's lightweight and compact, and can be tucked easily into most kitchen drawers.

This model is an upgrade over the Plus, with a lockable safety setting for the blade, greater convenience in switching cut types, and greater cutting options in general, including more thicknesses. I'm not sure why folks are still getting the Plus, as the current price difference (around $10) seems marginal relative to the benefits of the Pro. Also, Amazon is running this Pro model, but not the Plus model, in its 4-for-3 promotion (as of the time of this review anyway), so if you plan on purchasing other similarly priced items, this actually comes out comparably priced to the Plus.

BTW, for those of you who prefer to research your products before buying, the Swissmar mandoline (Pro or Plus) is a top-rated model pretty consistently across sources, including some serious cooking/foodie web sites.

It's overall very good. The unit is stable and doesn't skid while slicing. It comes with a variety of blades that satisfy all of my cutting needs. My only complaint is that it is very difficult to julienne small items such as carrots due to the hand guard, which doesn't hold produce of this size very well at all.

I did quite a bit of research on various mandolins, as I have been wanting one for quite some time. I am an avid "at home cook" and was DYING for something to simplify prep time in the kitchen. After reading a few reviews, I decided on the Boerner V Slicer Pro. The videos/infomercials are "gimmicky" but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT...no question. I would recommend this product to my friends and family...heck! Even strangers! The one drawback I found was with carrots...unfortunately carrots were the first thing I used the V Slicer for, and similar to a prior review, it stained the plastic. I am hoping eventually it will fade over time as I have scrubbed it and scrubbed it. I hope that the acidity from various fruits and veggies will break down the staining. Other than that, I love it and think it is actually fun to use. I made fish tacos and shredded the cabbage EFFORTLESSLY, julienned carrots for a salad with no problem, and have experimented with various slicing methods. I definitely think I made a good choice, and am very happy with my purchase.

I have been using this for about 20 years. It appears like new--just a quick rinse and you're done. This is one of maybe 3 different styles of slicers that one must have to cover all your slicing needs. The blades stay sharp forever and the way it stores away with the sharp edges out of the way is innovative and safe. I can cut a huge head of cabbage into a mound of thin-sliced slaw in no time. The way it does paper-thin onion slices is great, or chop a whole bunch to store in the fridge for daily use. I make potato chips as well...this is the machine to slice up a bunch with! The best!!
