Easy to use, easy clean up.

This mandoline is very sharp, my husband got a deep cut while slicing sweet potato, and he was using the food holder!

Clean up is easy and I especially like that it folds up for easy storage.

I've never used a mandoline or v-slicer before, and soon after I bought this one I just let it sit, unused, in my kitchen for a few days. I felt like kicking myself for buying yet another nonessential kitchen gadget on a whim. That was before I actually used the Zyliss Easy Slice 2 Folding Mandoline to effortlessly slice onions, cucumbers, and limes.

The directions that come with the Easy Slice 2 Folding Mandoline are very brief and clear, but be sure to read them carefully when it comes to how to turn the dial for stowing away the julienne blades. Zyliss USA also has an instructional usage video/ad on their website for this gadget, which can be useful if you've never used a similar item.

I haven't tried to use this mandoline for anything beyond hard veggies and citrus, but the results I have obtained have been great. I had trouble initially since I wasn't sure what was the best orientation to stick fruits and veggies with different shapes, sizes, and textures into the included food holder, but that's something you experiment with and I think may be required of all mandolines and v-slicers. Originally I gave up on using the food holder, thinking it to be too bothersome since I couldn't get things to stick properly to the food holder prongs. But after several near accidents, I decided it was necessary since I didn't have a cut-resistant butcher's or filleting glove lying around. Another thing one needs to learn through experimentation is how much downward/sideways pressure to apply in order to cut food smoothly with the mandoline.

The food holder can hold round and more elongated objects, and the way it's designed it doesn't waste much food.

I began my experience with mandolines grappling with a professional German stainless steel contraption that cost twice as much as the Zyliss, was as user-unfriendly as the devil (actually, this thing seemed to have stepped out straight from a medieval torture chamber) and left my fingers in tatters. It went straight onto the top shelf of that cupboard reserved for things we never want to see again, and I went without a mandoline.

Still determined to find one that worked, after doing my research I chose the Zyliss because I've yet to try something from the Swiss manufacturer that doesn't perform as promised. And I happily have to say that I'm not disappointed. The Zyliss is, indeed, a dream to handle. The instructions are clear and concise (I never needed to watch the DVD that comes with it), so putting this mandoline to work takes all of 30 seconds, especially if you've already used a mandoline before -- if you haven't, I advise you to read the instructions (and watch the DVD), familiarize yourself with its parts and test-drive a few potatoes.

Here are, in my opinion, its strong points:
* Very simple to set up and use.
* No moving parts that need to be inserted or removed for any function. Everything in the Zyliss is built into it (except the holder, which is par for the course), and it's all a matter of rotating a dial.
* Safe, especially in comparison with the German nightmare. However, if you don't pay attention to what you're doing, and don't follow the instructions, you can get cut (same as with a mishandled knife or anything with a cutting blade).
* Extremely easy to clean.
* Takes up very little storage space.
* Does exactly what it is supposed to do: slices chips in several different thicknesses, and juliennes as well.
* Does the job fast and precisely, and requires no strength to handle.

I am completely satisfied with this product, and my sister will get one for Christmas!

I bought the slicer for our 90 year old near blind grandma to slice her tomatoes thin and even without cutting herself. My husband tested it out & loves it. We had so much fun we sliced a lot at first. It slices both large tomatoes and plum tomatoes without squishing them and you can adjust it for thick or thin. Orange slices look great and you can eat them without squirting juice all over. I sliced apples & made cinnamon apple bake. It cleans quickly & easily & folds away conveniently - and you don't have to change the blade. We kept the slicer for ourselves and ordered another one for Grandma. She loves it too!

I've used mandolin slicers before but this is the first one that had an adjustable blade instead of inserts. I find that this is an advantage in that I can't lose the extra inserts and I don't have to worry about where to store them. It also comes with a little plastic safety cover for the blade that helps prevent accidents during storage. I also like the way that when folded it can stand upright on on end. As far as having to shake it to get the water out of it after cleaning, that is a unavoidable drawback of its ability to fold. It functions like a champ and really speeds up food preparation in my kitchen. I really have to laugh about the 1 star review titled "Sharp & Dangerous". It's like reading a negative review about a sports car titled "Fast & Maneuverable". If you stick your fingers into the blades of a slicing machine you shouldn't blame the machine for the resultant injury. These are the kind of people who close down kids playgrounds.
