Product Description

It's both a superb vegetable and fruit slicer and a julienne (strip) cutter, with a safety rail-guided sliding track system that yields a safe, easy and controlled back-and-forth motion over the V-shaped stainless steel blade. Experience quick and effortless slicing of vegetables and fruits at various thicknesses, from paper thin to 1/2" thick, for consistent, professional-looking hors d'oeuvres, side dishes, entrees, desserts and beverages.

Amazon.com

Nothing beats a mandoline for cutting uniform slices and strips of fruits and vegetables--and this model places your safety first and foremost. The base has a built-in stainless-steel V-shaped blade with a safety button that locks in any of the six included blades, ensuring that they can never accidentally move out of place. The food holder has an ergonomically designed handle that allows the full range of slicing motion and provides a stable grip. The food holder safely slides up and down on the mandoline’s unique grooved rail, which keeps the motion controlled and on track. For thicker chunks of fruits or veggies, the holder can even be lifted and angled to one side while still gripping the track. Food stays secured with the food guide, which pushes food through the holder and grips it with its sharp teeth.

The mandoline comes with six different blades that perform a variety of slicing functions. A 1/8-inch julienne insert is ideal for grating shoestring potatoes or carrots while a wider 1/4-inch julienne blade makes strips of zucchini or beets for steaming. The four slicing inserts offer different sizes--1/32-inch, 1/16-inch, 1/8-inch, 1/4-inch--to accommodate the widths of the foods you’re slicing but can all be adjusted to paper thin or chunky thicknesses. The 1/4-inch blade also serves as a safety insert to keep the blade from damage during storage. A storage caddy holds all blades and also acts as a drying rack after washing. The mandoline has non-skid feet to securely hold the base during slicing and an indent on the base so it can be used over a bowl. All parts are dishwasher-safe in the top rack and the entire product is covered by Zyliss under a 5-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

I bought this mandoline to replace a ten-year-old Boerner V-slicer which I though was getting a little dull and now I'm glad I didn't throw the old one away. I use a mandoline to get consistently thin, thin slices, and the Zyliss doesn't get the job done. Cutting with the .75-mm insert yields slices that vary between paper-thin and 1/16 of an inch thick -- a very long way from .75mm. I suspect the plastic used in the frame and insert is just too flexible or too poorly supported to provide thin slices every time.
In addition the rail-guide system is cumbersome and makes it very difficult to position food for slicing.
In short, for me, this product was a waste of money and the only product I've ever ordered from Amazon that I wish I could send back.
Buy a Boerner V-slicer instead: its a better slicer and it costs...less!

I have wanted a mandoline for years and finally recently bought the Zyliss safety-rail guided unit. I love it! It slices uniformly and easily. Ive never used one before and it was super simple, and super safe. If you want a product that will help cut prep time this is it. Ive read a review where the person had trouble with uniform slicing...no problem with mine. I cut through a green pepper and onion so fast I grabbed a zuchinni just so I could have something else to cut lol.

I had the opportunity to test this mandoline once without actually having to buy it, and I am thankful for that. (This is not even close to being on par with the Bron mandoline, but I guess that is what you get for spending a third of the price.) Anyway, I tried slicing cucumbers and carrots, as well as julienning the latter vegetable, and the pieces were far from uniform. The food holder was clumsy and difficult to use, especially with the orange that I tried to slice. None of the blade units contained particularly sharp blades, which you definately need in a mandoline. The only reason that I am even giving this object two stars instead of one is because of the safety rail, which did make me feel more comfortable about using a mandoline in the first place.

when my v-slicer dulled after nearly 10 years of lots of use and abuse, i decided to upgrade to this zyliss. big mistake! the guard rail is difficult to use, and i can't get the uniform slices i used to with my v-slicer. plus it is bulkier and harder to store than the v-slicer. so this is going back and i'm getting a v-slicer for half the price, but more than twice the results!

Lyndee Bee is right. I don't know what kind of slicer the one-star reviewer used before, but it must have been amazing to slam the Zyliss so badly.

To Lyndee's positive review, I can only add a couple of things. I can't even imagine how much sideways or twisting force it would take to "derail" the guide. The guide is a long, heavy plastic piece with a "C" profile that engages the track slots top and bottom.

I also like the fact that there are guide slots on both sides, so whether you're a lefty or righty you can put the guard on the side you want it.

I have medium-sized hands, and I find the pusher piece perfectly comfortable - and if it were smaller, the one-star poster would be griping about having to cut everything up to get it to fit into the guard tube. As it is, you can comfortably get a decent sized potato in there.

I also don't understand how you can get to the point that you're randomly jamming in the inserts into their storage box to the point that you're bending things. Friendly household tip - don't force things. Plus, there's no real need to have more than one insert out at a time anyway - they are clearly labeled in such a way that you only have to slide them out of the holder a half inch and you can see exactly which insert you've got.

And it's perfectly simple to store this upright. Slide the insert box onto the guide rails so that the open end is facing the tall end of the slicer. Then slide the guard onto the rail from the top. Put the pusher piece into the food tube from the underside, lower the guard and slide it up against the inserts - the edge of the guard will slip between a couple of the inserts.

Based on the poor reviews I almost returned this unused! Glad I didn't. Once I downloaded the manuals and saw the complexity of the other brands and that everyone who owned a Swissmar Borner cut themselves... I decided to try this one myself. Some of the complaints are the safe guards against "the hard to use other brands" and the dangerous Borner. The Zyliss is very easy to use, very easy to clean and to store. Though I took the warnings from the instructions not to throw the parts with blades in the dishwasher as they may become dulled. Anyone who appreciates their cutlery never uses the dishwasher! I made the best oven baked potato chips the first night I had it. I do recommend it. It is less expensive than the Oxo and much easier and safer to use.

Buy a different mandoline. This one is awkward to use and very poorly designed. The higher quality stainless mandolines are a much better choice and worth the price difference.
